HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to get a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a property in Aldersgate and which one is cheaper?

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

If the Aldersgate property is a flat, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any significant alterations, RICS advise you commission a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap but it will offer an in-depth analysis of the Aldersgate property's state of repair as well as information on defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

Roof defects identified during a survey

Poor roof maintenance has created issues for us at our old property. Will access to the roof of the building be time consuming to arrange?

This often causes anxiety for property purchasers with a roofing 'horror story' from a previous home. Many properties can still be subject to roofing woes, like incorrectly applied waterproofing. All aspects of the roof should be reviewed, from the gables to the valley gutters, and any defects addressed as soon as possible.

The prospect of large bills for roofing jobs (such as re-covering asphalt) may have scared off some homeowners from carrying out necessary work. In extreme cases, this may be the reason for the sale, so buyers must be vigilant and employ the services of a qualified surveyor before the exchange of contracts. A roofing specialist in Aldersgate with good feedback should be able to assist with a quote.
