RICS Building Surveys in Bury St Edmunds
Full building (Level 3) building surveys are the gold standard survey type – these are the most thorough surveys you can get on the market. These are particularly suited to more complex homes, and with Bury St Edmunds chock full of beautiful historic properties, our surveyors complete a lot of level 3 surveys in the town.
Level 2, HomeBuyer surveys are a great option for anyone buying a modern property, especially if it is build using standard methods and is in reasonable condition. These surveys are briefer than the Level 3 option, but still cover all serious defects and anything likely to significantly affect the value of the property.
Buying a Property in Bury St Edmunds
Bury St Edmunds is a fantastic place to buy a property. Frequently topping the ‘best places to live’ lists, it’s no surprise that house prices remain buoyant. However, for those that can stretch to a purchase in the area, it should be a sound investment. A building survey will make sure that you are fully informed when making the purchase, and that there are no expensive surprises, such as a leaking roof or structural cracking, to discover when you move in.
If you are purchasing a period property, such as a Georgian or Victorian town centre home, or a Grade II listed house further out, make sure your surveyor has experience in heritage buildings. Older houses were built using different methods than modern homes, and this needs to be taken into consideration when planning repairs and maintenance. It also needs to be considered when evaluating what levels of moisture are acceptable in the walls, and whether wonky walls and floors are signs of something serious, or just adding character!
