Home Buyers Survey in Raunds

HomeBuyer Report

Should I have a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a home in Raunds and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey and is basically the same the same survey.

If the Raunds property is a flat or maisonette, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any alterations, RICS recommend you carry out a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap, however it will give you an in-depth analysis of the Raunds property's condition as well as more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

We need Flemish Stretcher bond upkeep guidance, can the surveyor help?

Brick-constructed property in Raunds feature several advantages, but they can also indicate numerous defects. This could be anything from spalling to moisture damage. One defect surveyors commonly report on brick buildings is rusted ties (this decay can be accelerated by black ash mortar often found in older properties). This expansion of the ties as they rust causes horizontal cracks leading to structural issues. For more information, contact a local builder, Talty M F of 62 Holmoaks, Rainham, Gillingham, ME8 7DN on 01634 364750.

For example, running, or stretcher, bond.

Consider the advice of both the surveyor and a builder or other specialist if potential structural defects arise during the survey.

Damage resulting from flooding

Is there a risk of flooding in Raunds, and can a Raunds chartered surveyor inquire into indications of flooding damage, or if the garden have been affected?

Heavy rain, overflowing waterways, tidal activity and poor drainage could all cause major flooding. If you are planning to buy in a flood-affected area, a home survey will inform your decision. A surveyor has a number of options to assess whether a property is vulnerable, and a property surveyor will advise on repairs or preventative measures.

The GroundSure Flood Report is one of several risk screening reports designed to provide an overview of whether a Raunds property lies within an area of potential or previous flood risk. Oral enquiries can sometimes be made of the estate agent, but this information may not be accurate.
