Home Buyers Survey in Wootton Bridge

HomeBuyer Report

Should I get a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a property in Wootton Bridge and which one is cheaper?

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

If the Wootton Bridge property is a flat, or is an older property, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction, then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any an extension, it would be better that you select a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap but it will provide you with exhaustive analysis of the Wootton Bridge property's state of repair and it includes advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Conservation area

Will there be any potential pitfalls I would need to check out if intending to buy a house in Wootton Bridge near a conservation area?

There are thousands of conservation areas in England and Wales, responsibility for which lies with local councils. Wootton Bridge surveyors need to possess knowledge of relevant local area factors and any effect may have on the home and its value. Property Prices tends to be higher owing to them being unspoilt. However many areas have been neglected and are in poor condition e.g. badly maintained and potholed roads and pavements

Property surveyors are trained to report if the property is possibly classified as such and Section I of your Wootton Bridge Homebuyer Report will advise additional enquiries are conducted by your legal representation.

Unauthorised extensions to the building will also be advised in your survey, however these should be concern for your conveyancer.

Stone block wall damage

I am intending to put an offer in on a conversion partially constructed Kentish Rag stone. What issues should we be aware of, and what does the survey cover?

There are many of defects and issues associated with stone-built property. The problems which can plague poorly maintained stone vary considerably.

Stone walls are either regular (cut) or irregular in structure, each of which will provoke particular concerns. These walls will need frequent upkeep.

Ask you surveyor for details, but the report may specify resolution of underlying problems, like damp, before work on the wall starts.

Roof defects identified during a survey

Mould brings up bad memories for us. What advice would the Wootton Bridge building surveyor give in their report?

This is frequently addressed by building surveyors. Many residential properties can often hide roofing problems, such as. All aspects of the roof should be reviewed, from the dormers to the parapet walls. The building surveyors could suggest that some of the faults must be dealt with immediately.

The expense of loft insulation, or other major roof work, means that some owners put it off for as long as possible. This is a false economy, as such issues can lead to more severe general structural problems. It may be advisable to source an estimate for any work prior to exchange.

Damage caused by high rainfall

Do I need to investigate drainage? Will the Wootton Bridge surveyor report on this? Also, where there [var10], what should we do?

Climate change is regularly in the news. However the impact rain can have on houses is rarely paid due attention by property buyers. If you have only been to the home on a sunny day, defects may not have been obvious. Signs that rainwater goods are under performing include streaks of dirt down the outside of guttering. Poor drainage can lead to a damp or flooded cellar.

Fortunately, problems with drains are generally easy to fix, and is also relatively inexpensive. Where this is poorly maintained, the damage becomes increasing costly to remedy.

Shocking Electrics

When I viewed the home I am intending to buy I saw that there is old wiring - will the Wootton Bridge surveyor advise the wiring and electrical system?

When performing a Wootton Bridge Home Buyers Survey your surveyor should remark on the overall electrical system if it is apparent that they are in a less than satisfactory state of repair. The RICS surveyor will also report on potential areas for concern such as verifying the state of the fixed electrical appliances e.g. storage radiators. Inspecting the documentation from a test on the condition of the electrical connections conducted by an electrician should form part of the survey in Wootton Bridge.
