HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to go for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a house in Benson and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same survey.

If the Benson property is a flat, or is an older property, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out any alterations, you should you go for a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it does give you a more detailed analysis of the Benson property's condition and it includes information on defects , repairs and maintenance options .

Roof defects identified during a survey

Damp in the attic brings up bad memories for us. What advice would the property surveyor in Benson give in their report?

This is a common concern for buyers in Bensonwho have had to put up with weeks of scaffolding around their home while work is underway. Homes throughout Benson could unfortunately be experiencing roofing woes. From wind braces to dormer windows, every part of the roof should be investigated.

The RICS surveyors could suggest that some of the faults must be dealt with immediately.

The expense of wholesale replacement, 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. Prior to exchange, it may be worth sourcing from a roofing specialist in Benson a quote for any suggested work.
