About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Witham

HomeBuyer Report

Should we select a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a house in Witham and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey but is effectively the same level of survey.

If the Witham property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any significant alterations on the Witham property, it would be better that you select a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap however it does give a more detailed analysis of the Witham property's condition as well as including information on defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

Timber damage by insect larvae

My husband spotted signs of bugs in the basement - Is a Full Structural Survey advisable?

Infestations can range from the mild and harmless, to the seriously harmful. It may not be obvious that a property is suffering a severe pest problem, as evidence can be overlooked. For example, sliverfish (lepisma saccharina), are rarely visible during the day. They will digest paper and wallpaper paste, but are more a symptom of damp than a serious problem themselves. Remedies can be disruptive to residents, and may require you to move out during the work in extreme cases. If investigation does uncover a problem, consider speaking to the seller to ask that they deal with the issue prior to exchange.

Roof defects identified during a survey

We have made an offer for a structure with a converted attic in Witham. What will our surveyor in Witham investigate during the survey?

Questions like this are often asked of property surveyors by home buyers who are aware that property may be exposed to difficulties with the roof, for example, mould. All aspects of the roof should be reviewed, from the eaves to the collar ties, and where the matter is serious, it should be rectified promptly.

The maintenance of a roof can be the cause of serious accidents, which is why modern contractors refuse to work without scaffolding. A Witham builder can provide an estimate.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

I've put in an offer in Witham. What advice would you give? What impact do Witham environmental conditions have?

Brick-built property do benefit from many advantages, but they will also be subject to a range of defects, including frost damage and thermal movement. For instance, patchwork cracks caused by tie failure. This cracking may only be visible internally, and is accompanied by an irregular wall surface and should be taken very seriously. A local builder should be able to assist. Call Johnson K, 19 Chiltern Ridge/Ibstone Road, High Wycombe, HP14 3SZ on 01494 482878 for a quote for repair work.

For buyers with an eye for detail, less used styles of brick course include Scottish bond features five courses (rows) of long-oriented bricks then one row of short faced bricks, before repeating the pattern. Consider renegotiating the price of the Witham property, based on the results of your survey. Works to remedy even some superficial brick wall defects can be both expensive and disruptive.
