HomeBuyer Report

Should I opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a home in Beddington South and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey and is effectively the same comprehensive survey.

If the Beddington South property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any an extension, you should you select a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it will offer comprehensive details of the Beddington South property's condition as well as including an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

Damage resulting from flooding

Is there a risk of flooding in Beddington South, and can a Beddington South home surveyor look for flooding?

It is estimated that over two million properties are at a high risk of flood damage, and insurance premiums. can be significantly affected for properties in flood-risk areas. It is easily possible to assess whether a house is susceptible to flooding via any of a number of routes. In addition, the Home Buyers Survey may advise on needed maintenance.Preventative measures can include costly but effective solutions e.g. correctly installed window and door frames. The building surveyor may ask the estate agent about historical floods, although the result of these enquires should be treated as a guide only.

Fortunately, no recent Beddington South flood warnings have been made (source: Environment Agency).

Damage caused by high rainfall

How will we know what effect could high levels of rainfall have on our new Beddington South property? Will the Beddington South building survey report on this? Can damaged gutters decrease our property's value?

Rainfall is a fact of life in the UK, however, the impact high levels of rainfall can have on Beddington South property is not given more thought by property buyers. Signs that downspouts are at risk include streaks of dirt down the outside of guttering. This can lead to rising damp.

Luckily, guttering issues are usually easy to remedy. However, if the drains are untreated or poorly maintained, the resulting damage can lower the value of the property and become increasing harder to repair. In the worst case scenario, deterioration of a building's foundations can become fatal to its structural integrity, risking collapse.

Conservatory

On the HomeBuyer Report what effect will a an amber light rating have on 'E7 - Conservatory and porches' ?

Section E7 defects include those affect any porch or conservatory attached to the home. The type and condition of these parts will be considered too. A porch or conservatory that needs weatherproof paint or other protection is an example of this.

Defects which need some attention are rated 'amber' or condition rating 2, but they are not considered to be urgent or serious. They may also require frequent upkeep.
