Which Building Survey is the right choice?

  • House suitable for a HomeBuyer Report

    A Homebuyer Report is the best choice when you are buying a home made of standard building materials i.e. brick & tile, in reasonable repair and less than 100 years old.

  • Property suitable for a Building Survey

    A Building Survey (which used to be called a Full Structural Survey in Boston) is also conducted by a MRICS/FRICS surveyor but is more thorough. Choose this when buying a non standard property such as thatched buildings.

    Property Valuation Report in Boston

    This is an independent valuation . This report is typically chosen by mortgage free buyers or someone requiring a formal valuation e.g. a dispute.

HomeBuyer Report

Should I choose a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a home in Boston and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey but is essentially the same level of survey.

If the Boston property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make alterations, it would be better that you book a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap, but it does offer a thorough analysis of the Boston property's state of repair as well as information on defects and maintenance options .

If in doubt why not get a Boston House Survey Quote or call 0800 038 6667 to speak to our survey team.

Building Surveys on houses

When acquiring a modified Victorian cottage property, is it best to upgrade to a full structural survey?

The Full Structural Survey has a new title and is now named a Building Survey. You should opt for a Building Survey for the property you are considering. The HomeBuyer Report has enough detail if buying a 60 year old or less Boston property built out of typical construction materials i.e. brick and tile. There are certain limitations exist with any survey as your local Boston surveyor cannot

open up the structure of the house for example, or look into the internal condition of chimneys.

Stone block wall damage

We are buying a property with West Cornwall granite walls. Which major factors should we consider, and what does the survey cover?

External wall maintenance is essential to the health of property. The properties of a stone can affect wear as much as upkeep or construction. Stone quarried in the area is common to local property, but some do also feature cut stone brought from outside the county. Both regular or irregular stone can be mortared with lime-based mortar. This may also require careful attention. Guidelines for better stone wall upkeep include.

If you a undertaking repairs, and require matching stone, contact a Boston expert, including Boston Heating Centre of Church Rd, Boston, PE21 0LG.

Damage resulting from flooding

Does a Boston building survey check for any flooding damage?

Overflowing rivers, rain and insufficient drainage can cause flooding, and buyers and owners are understandably concerned. A surveyor has a number of options to assess whether a property is vulnerable. The HomeBuyer Report may also, where appropriate, advise on needed maintenance.Details relating to signs of flooding may be reported in Section J of the HomeBuyer Report. Oral enquiries can sometimes be made of the vendor or agent, but this information may not be accurate.
