About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Walsingham

HomeBuyer Report

Should we go for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a house in Walsingham and of the 3, which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey but is basically the same the same.

If the Walsingham property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out an extension, RICS advise you commission a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap but it will offer comprehensive details of the Walsingham property's condition as well as information on defects , repairs as well as maintenance options .

Timber damage by insect larvae

We are buying in Walsingham, and think we saw signs of vermin in the toilet. Is a Home Buyers Survey advisable?

Any questions about pests affecting a Walsingham building may not be asked by the lawyer. Pests quite literally come in all shapes and sizes, and can be more difficult to treat than many buyers realise. Evidence may not be easy to find, for example, small tunnels in wooded beams may indicate the presence of house longhorn beetles. Treatment for an infestation may include removal of infected furniture.

Asbestos roof tiles

The estate agent stated there may be a danger of asbestos duct connectors being found in the ground floor flat. What is asbestos?

Asbestos is a dangerous silicate material. Chrysotile (White), Amosite (Brown) and Crocidolite (Blue) may be in building materials e.g. ceiling boards. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has very good resistance to chemical damage properties, it may be found in boilers.

All forms are hazardous and can lead to lung cancer or fibrosis following prolonged exposure.

Care should be taken if asbestos is discovered not to disturb it and professional advice should be sought as soon as possible. Surveyors cannot tell you whether there is asbestos on a survey. Surveyors will note potential asbestos and will offer advice.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

We are buying in Walsingham, and the home's foundations have been built on clay soil. Can we expect the Walsingham Building Survey to mention this?

The content of soil around the foundations of a house in Walsingham can have unwanted consequences. Drought, for instance, can have a shrinking effect on clay soil, squeezing the foundations and potentially leading to very noticeable effects within the property, such as a sticking door in the bedroom. There is a real benefit in booking a Walsingham surveyor to carry out your Property Survey, familiar with local soil composition, and who has witnessed the effects first-hand. Additional strengthening or support of the structure's foundations may be required, including underpinning or piling.

Building Surveys on flats 1

Should I pay more for a full structural survey when carrying out due diligence on a flat in Walsingham?

The Full Structural Survey is now called the Building Survey. Select a Building Survey for this flat. The HomeBuyer Report is appropriate for a post 1950s unmodified Walsingham property assembled from conventional construction materials. Furthermore flats typically make it harder to survey the building, therefore the surveyor will only investigate the actual flat, though he may exist other tenant shared areas such as security.

Landfill site near home

What should we be fearful of when buying a property near to a rubbish tip

Landfill Sites are used for a variety of waste for example: hazardous waste material. Of course nobody really wants to live near one (most people do live near one). Risks might include hazardous chemicals .

Walsingham RICS surveyors will examine structural problems connected with the site. Your lawyer will commission environmental searches of the British Geological database in addition to North Norfolk Local Authority and address any concerns you may have .
