Home Buyers Survey in Waltham Cross

HomeBuyer Report

Should we book a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a property in Waltham Cross and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey and is essentially the same comprehensive survey.

If the Waltham Cross property is a flat, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out significant alterations, it would be better that you select a Building Survey instead. The Building Survey is less cheap but it does provide you with a more detailed analysis of the Waltham Cross property's state of repair along with an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

Conservation area

Will there be any factors we need to check on if intending to buy an extended house in Waltham Cross in conservation area ?

There are thousands of designated conservation areas throughout the country which are designated by the local council.

Home Buyers Surveys in Waltham Cross need to possess sufficient knowledge of relevant local factors and the effect they have with the building and its value. The price of property is, more often than not, greater as a result of them being unspoilt. However many have been neglected and are in a poor state for example - increasing amounts of scruffy green spaces

Property surveyors can be expected to advise if the house might be within a conservation area and Section I Issues for your legal advisers of a Waltham Cross Homebuyer Report will advise additional due diligence and enquiries are carried out during the legal process. Unapproved modifications that do not have Local Authority approval should be reported but these are really more a concern for the solicitor.

Chimney stacks

For the Waltham Cross HomeBuyer Report can you give examples of an amber light rating defects affecting 'E1 - Chimney stacks' ?

Chimney stacks are reviewed by eye with binoculars as required. A chimney which is not continuous through the roof or loft space is an example of this. The home buyer report is intended to be easy to read and understand, unlike less prescriptive surveys. These may offer more complex detail, but they are also less useful for house buyers deciding whether or not to purchase a Waltham Cross house. Colour coded ratings are used to communicate the impact on the property individual defects may have. Issues requiring some attention are labelled condition rating 2, but they are not considered to be urgent or serious. They may also require frequent upkeep.

Stone block wall damage

We are planning to buy a residential property and the seller's agent has stated that it has been constructed with Cotswold stone. Are there specific related issues to bear in mind?

From Cromwell Sandstone to Plumpton Red Lazonby Sandstone, there are many types of stone used in the construction of homes in this country. Defects such as cracks affect many stone-walled houses in Waltham Cross. Stone quarried in the area is common to local houses in Waltham Cross, but some do also feature cut stone brought from outside the county.

Regular courses of ashlar (cut stone) are often used as a finish to irregular stone walls. Guidelines for better stone wall upkeep include. If you are planning to renovate, consider that a stone matching service is operated by the British Geological Survey. Locally mined or quarried stone may also be available.
