HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to select a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a property in Bruton and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey but is essentially the same level of survey.

If the Bruton property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out major works on the property, you should you choose a Building Survey. This option is less cheap, but it will give an in-depth analysis of the Bruton property's state of repair and it includes more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Damage caused by high rainfall

Is rainfall an issue in Bruton? If there is a problem, will they be troublesome to fix?

Rainfall is a fact of life in the UK, however, this issue is rarely considered properly by home buyers. If you have only visited the house on a clear day, defects may not have been obvious.

Signs that drainage systems are worth a closer look include corroded downspouts. Luckily, drainage problems are quite easy to fix. If untreated or poorly maintained, however, the damage will impact both the home's value, and the residents' enjoyment of the property.

Damage resulting from flooding

Does a Bruton residential surveyor look for any flood damage?

Burst dams, poor drainage and tidal activity can all result in extensive floods, and the value of a property can decrease if in an exposed area, even if it has never flooded. A surveyor has a number of options to assess whether a property is vulnerable, and a property surveyor will advise on repairs or preventative measures. Less expensive preventative measures include door guards. The home surveyor may ask the estate agent about historical floods, although the result of these enquires should be treated as a guide only.

Roof defects identified during a survey

Poor roof maintenance brings up bad memories for us, and we are sensitive to the cost of roof repairs. What advice would the Bruton house surveyor give in their report?

This is a common concern for Bruton buyers with a roofing 'horror story' from a previous home. Many homes could feature roofing problems. Every element should be checked, e.g. dormer windows, and any defects addressed as soon as possible.

Repairs to a dilapidated roof can be the cause of serious accidents, which is why modern contractors refuse to work without scaffolding. It may be advisable to source an estimate for any work prior to exchange. Contact Bourton Roofing of 1 Pleasant View, Bourton, Gillingham, SP8 5BU on 01747 840064 for details.
