About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Wollaton

HomeBuyer Report

Should we book a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a house in Wollaton and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey and is essentially the same.

If the Wollaton property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any alterations on the Wollaton property, RICS advise you select a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap however it does give you a more detailed analysis of the Wollaton property's condition as well as advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Damaged Render

What kind of problems will your RICS Surveyor look for on a stipple rendered (stucco) Victorian home in Wollaton which we wish to buy.

Stucco is really a specific type of render. Usually stucco is layered over brick hardens to form a smooth stone like surface. The effect is highly appealing and is found on Victorian and Regency houses. Stucco is often problematic and Wollaton Homebuyer Reports commonly discover potentially expensive to remedy problems e.g. when it is faced with driving rain which becomes saturated and prone to frost damage. Other issues might result from the heavy loads such as cracking under supports carrying concrete roof tiles that have absorbed water. Resolving problems may be expensive as the skills are becoming rarer.

Landfill site near home

What should we be wary of if buying a flat close to a refuse tip

Sites used for landfill come in many shapes and sizes e.g. industrial waste material disposal. No one ideally wants to live near one (80% of people live within 1.5m of one!). Risks include leaking underground tanks from petrol stations for example. Potential health concerns like birth defects have been associated to landfill sites .

Building Surveys and valuations in Wollaton will consider structural problems linked to the landfill. Your conveyancer will commission conveyancing and environmental searches of the British Geological databases in addition to Nottingham Local Authority and inform you of any issues and let you know if the searches fail .

Timber damage by insect larvae

Will an infestation affect the purchase price of a Wollaton building. Is a Home Buyers Survey advisable?

Houses will often be free of major infestations. However, if you do have specific concerns, you should seek advice.

Unfortunately, the threat posed by these to property is very real, and can seriously reduce the value of a property. It may not be obvious that a property is suffering a severe pest problem, as evidence can be overlooked, termites are still rare in the UK, but may be present in imported timber. They are capable of almost hollowing out beams before they are discovered and can therefore put the structural integrity of a home at serious risk. Remedies can take time, so if you opt to proceed with the purchase, check with a specialist how long treatment will take.
