About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Long Stratton

HomeBuyer Report

Should I go for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a property in Long Stratton and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey, although it is basically the same the same.

If the Long Stratton property is a flat or maisonette, or is a period property, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any works or an extension, RICS advise you book a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap but it will offer exhaustive analysis of the Long Stratton property's condition along with more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Conservation area

Are there any potential pitfalls we need to consider when intending to buy a building in Long Stratton near a conservation area, particularly with regards to house prices?

There are over 9, 000 of conservation areas in the UK which are designated by the local authority.

Home Buyers Surveys in Long Stratton must possess local knowledge of relevant local issues and the relation may have with the property. The price of property is typically greater because of them being in good order.

RICS surveyors can be expected to advise you whether the building is possibly so designated and Section I of the Long Stratton Homebuyer Report will advise further enquiries are conducted during the legal process. Unsympathetic adjustments that do not have Local Authority approval will also be noted in the survey, however these should be investigated by your lawyer. Willcoxlewis Llp are a local firm situated at Old Coach House, South Norfolk, Norfolk, NR15 1DD should be happy to tell you what to look out for. Tel: 01508 480100

Timber damage by insect larvae

There may be bugs at the property in Long Stratton we're buying, but we are not certain - Do we need a residential surveyor?

Pests like house longhorn beetle may sometimes seem a small, even irrelevant, matter when buying in Long Stratton.

Unfortunately, the threat posed by these to property is very real, and can be very expensive to resolve. It may not be obvious that a house is suffering a severe pest problem, as evidence can be overlooked, for example, cockroaches are nocturnal, and challenging to eradicate. Species common to the UK, such as the German Cockroach, are small, and breed rapidly in moist conditions. This makes them both hard to spot, and to treat successfully. Remedies can take time, so if you opt to proceed with the purchase, check with a specialist how long treatment will take.RICS guidelines on the issue of infestations are something of a 'grey-area', so specific fears should be mentioned to your surveyor.

Gas flame

Will the Long Stratton surveyor check the state of the gas mains supply?

Your RICS surveyor will visually check the accessible parts of the gas system. This will include gas heaters at the property, as well as gas associated fittings, for instance fireplaces. Any external fittings however, won't be detached. The system will not be tested at all. Most people are aware that gas is potentially deadly, if you have any worries about gas fittings of any type, call a gas engineer.

Conservatory

On a HomeBuyer Report carried out in Long Stratton, what might 'E7 - Conservatory and porches' refer to?

RICS created the HomeBuyer Report to give house purchasers a clear and easy to read report on the condition of the home they plan to buy, with a minimum of technical jargon. A 'traffic light' system of colour coding is used to confirm to what extent each defect requires attention. In Long Stratton, examples include sagging railings. Porches, conservatories and similar elements of the property's construction are included here. Safety hazards, including floor-level glass and blocked escape routes from upper storey windows will be considered too.
