About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Sudbury Court

HomeBuyer Report

Should we get a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a house in Sudbury Court and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey but is essentially the same level of survey.

If the Sudbury Court property is an apartment, or is a period property, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction, RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make any alterations, RICS recommend you opt for a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap, but it will offer a thorough analysis of the Sudbury Court property's state of repair as well as an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

Damage caused by high rainfall

How will we know what effect could high levels of rainfall have on our new property in Sudbury Court? Will the surveyor report on this?

The impact of climate change is widely reported, yet this issue is usually overlooked by house purchasers. For instance, rotten roofing elements suggest that the drainage systems are blocked. This can lead to staining of wallpaper and damp.

That is not to say that drainage problems should cause you to reconsider a purchase. They are usually a simple matter to repair. However, if the drains are poorly maintained, the resulting damage can lower the value of the property and become increasing harder to repair. In the worst case scenario, deterioration of a building's foundations can become fatal to its structural integrity, risking collapse.

Damage resulting from flooding

What's the danger of flooding in Sudbury Court. Can a residential surveyor investigate flooding?

Last year was the second wettest year on record (source: Channel 4 News), and buyers and owners are understandably concerned. Your RICS surveyor may use several methods to determine if the property in Sudbury Court in question is in danger. The property survey may also, where appropriate, make recommendations for repair work or improved flood protection.The property survey will also include details of any evidence of historical flooding, and may comment generally about the area's propensity to flood. Oral enquiries can sometimes be made of the current owner, but this information may not be accurate.

No recent flood warnings were announced for Sudbury Court, according to the Environment Agency.

Damaged Render

What problems will my Property Surveyor look for on a smooth stucco coated regency house in Sudbury Court that we intend to purchase.

Stucco is in fact a kind of smooth render. Commonly stucco render is applied to brick to form a flat surface, often then trowled to give the appearance of stone blocks. Stucco render is highly grand in appearance and is often found on Regency homes. Stucco is often prone to defect and Surveyors in Sudbury Court sometimes detail defects for instance damp trapped behind paint (assuming painted).

Another example of problems can possibly result be when dampness below flashings which causes large areas of detachment. Re-covering problems with stucco can be dear as the skills are getting rarer.

Timber damage by insect larvae

We are buying in Sudbury Court, and think we saw signs of bugs in the kitchen. What advice should we get?

Questions regarding the infestation of a Sudbury Court property may not be raised during the conveyancing. Pests quite literally come in all shapes and sizes, and can be more difficult to treat than many buyers realise. An affected property may not always be easy to identify, for example, skin irritation or spots of blood on bedsheets may indicate the presence of bed bugs. Remedies to bug or other pest issues can include insecticides.RICS guidelines on the issue of vermin are something of a 'grey-area', so specific fears should be mentioned to your home surveyor.
