Which Home Buyers Survey should you choose?

  • House suitable for a HomeBuyer Report

    Homebuyer Report in Belton

    A Homebuyer Report is the right choice when purchasing a property built from conventional materials such as tile & brick, not dilapidated and constructed after 1900.

  • Property suitable for a Building Survey

    Building Survey in Belton

    A RICS Building Survey (previously called a Full Structural Survey in Belton) is also conducted by a MRICS/FRICS chartered surveyor but is more comprehensive. Opt for this for unconventional e.g. thatched roof buildings.

  • Surveyor carrying out a Property Valuation

    This is an independent valuation . This report is typically chosen by mortgage free purchasers or anyone needing a formal valuation e.g. for probate.

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to book a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a house in Belton and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same comprehensive survey.

If the Belton property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any major works, it would be better that you opt for a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap, however it does give a thorough analysis of the Belton property's state of repair as well as an opinion on defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

Conservation area

Are there any concerns I would be advised to look out for if buying an extended house in Belton inside a conservation area ?

There are many thousands of designated conservation areas throughout England and Wales which are designated by the local council. Belton surveyors must have knowledge of relevant local area factors and the relation may have on the home. The value of homes will likely be inflated because of conservation areas being in their original state. However a growing number are falling into shoddy condition for example - ugly satellite dishes

RICS surveyors will advise you whether the location looks like it may be within a conservation area and Section I of a Homebuyer Report will advise further enquiries are carried out by the conveyancing solicitor. Unauthorised adjustments to the building may be advised in your survey and these will be investigated in more detail by the lawyer.

Gas flame

Does a qualified RICS surveyor look into the state of repair of the gas appliances?

Yes. A qualified surveyor will locate and visually inspect any accessible parts of the gas system. The survey will include whether the mains is connected as part of the Belton survey, as well as gas affiliated appliances/installations for example - balanced flues (where immediately extended from appliance/external element).. A Belton qualified RICS surveyor won't remove any external fittings or housings and he or she won't run any tests of any kind on the appliances or system. Needless to say, gas is potentially deadly and if there are any worries about gas fittings, call a gas engineer.

Roof defects identified during a survey

A leaky roof caused problems in the old property, and we expect to budget something for roof maintenance. What will our home surveyor check when the building is surveyed?

Property in Belton in good condition can be hiding serious dry rot, among a range of other roofing issues. From collar ties to dormer windows, many parts of the roof and loft must be reviewed, and where the matter is serious, it should be rectified promptly.

In the past, roof maintenance would be carried out with just ladders and 'crawler boards'. This practice is terribly unsafe, and contractors today will insist that scaffolding be used. A quote (or several) for any necessary work should be acquired as soon as possible.
