HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to choose a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a house in Cheltenham and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same level of survey.

If the Cheltenham property is a flat or maisonette, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out an extension, you should you opt for a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap however it will give exhaustive analysis of the Cheltenham property's general condition in addition to information on defects as well as maintenance options .

Damage caused by high rainfall

Are wet conditions an issue in Cheltenham? And could it affect the property value?

Despite England's reputation for wet weather the effect which wet weather has on Cheltenham houses is overlooked by house purchasers. For example, a waterlogged garden suggest that the gutters are a cause for concern, but you may wish to ask your surveyor for more detail. Whether buying in Cheltenham or elsewhere, difficult gutters does not necessarily mean that you need to pull out. Such matters are often simple to resolve, if maintenance is taken seriously. 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.
