About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Stallingborough

HomeBuyer Report

Should we select a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a property in Stallingborough and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey and is essentially the same.

If the Stallingborough property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials, you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make significant alterations, you should you commission a Building Survey instead. The Building Survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it will give comprehensive details of the Stallingborough property's state of repair as well as advice on defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

Damage resulting from flooding

Would our house surveyor search for signs of water damage?

Flooding has become a serious concern, more so after it was reported that last year was the second wettest on record (source: BBC News), and it is not clear that reasonably-priced flooding insurance will be available in years to come. A flood risk alert service, with regular updates, is operated by the Environment Agency.

Flooding can increase the likelihood of water entering a property, such as via door frames.

Familiarity with characteristics of the local area likely to affect property enables the surveyor to surmise flooding may be a risk, even if the property has not itself flooded before, the data used to compile third-party flood assessments also takes into account flood defences and historic claims.

Timber damage by insect larvae

We are buying a building in Stallingborough but are worried about bugs. Is a Full Structural Survey advisable?

Stallingborough homes will often be free of major pest problems. However, if you do have specific concerns, you should seek advice. Unfortunately, the impact to a house and its inhabitants can put your health in danger and affect its value. It is vital that buyers consider this oft-overlooked aspect when making an offer.

Signs may not be evident for weeks or months, woodworm, or larvae of the common furniture beetle, may be identified after finding neat small holes in wood, accompanied by piles of wood dust beneath. As some pest problems can be very stubborn, knowing the risks, and chance of success before you buy is essential. The RICS surveyor may include notes on any signs of vermin or other pests in their report. It is, however, advisable that specific worries you may have be raised ASAP.

Damaged Render

What will your Chartered Surveyor take into account on a smooth stucco regency semi detached home in Stallingborough that I am thinking of purchasing.

Stucco is just a smooth and flat render. Usually it is applied to underlying brick that dries to a smooth stone like surface. The coating is highly attractive and was common on some Regency properties. It is very like plaster or mortar. It may contain lime (which makes it set harder) in it in addition to a plastic under mesh to help stop cracks. it can be problematic and Surveyors in Stallingborough frequently focus on any number of problems like trapped water leading to internal damp problems. Other potential problems might include when the application is taken down to ground level bypassing the DPC or Damp Proof Course. Re-coating problems can be costly as renderers are becoming harder to find.
