Need a Property Survey ? Which one should you opt for?

  • House suitable for a HomeBuyer Report

    Homebuyer Report in Clifton

    The Homebuyer Report is the best choice when buying a home made of standard building materials i.e. tile and brick, not dilapidated and built in the last 100 years.

  • Property suitable for a Building Survey

    Building Survey in Clifton

    A Building Survey (often referred to as a Full Structural Survey in Clifton) will also be carried out by a MRICS/FRICS surveyor and is more thorough. Select this when buying a non standard e.g. stone wall or older houses.

  • Surveyor carrying out a Property Valuation

    Property Valuation Report in Clifton

    This is an independent valuation of the property. This report is often chosen by mortgage free buyers or anyone needing a formal valuation e.g. a dispute.

HomeBuyer Report

Should I select a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a property in Clifton and which one would be cheaper?

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

If the Clifton property is an apartment, or is a period property, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction, you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any works or an extension, RICS recommend you opt for a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap but it will give you an in-depth analysis of the Clifton property's condition as well as more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Roof defects identified during a survey

We're purchasing a structure in Clifton , and we are sensitive to the cost of roof repairs. What will our property surveyor in Clifton investigate as part of the survey?

This is frequently addressed by house surveyors. Homes throughout Clifton can be hiding serious issues with the roof. Every element should be checked, e.g. fascias, and any defects addressed as soon as possible.

Given the high cost of major roof repairs like wholesale replacement, some homeowners may defer maintenance indefinitely. This makes both the cause and the consequences harder and even more expensive to treat when repairs do take place. It may be advisable to source an estimate for any work prior to exchange.

Traditionally built property

What should we bear in mind when buying a building constructed in 1780 in Clifton? What impact will the property's timber frame have on regular maintenance?

Use of traditional methods can create issues for homeowners, and Property constructed with traditional methods can be a drain to upkeep. It is often the case that expert knowledge is necessary, and it could also be necessary to find Materials suitable for the work. Constructed in the 14th century, TIl House in Clifton is a good example of a Medieval hall.

Damage resulting from flooding

We are buying a property in Clifton, does the surveyor inquire into indications of flood damage, or if neighbour's houses have been affected?

It is estimated that over two million residences are at risk of flood damage. Those planning to buy in affected areas should weigh up their exposure.

Your RICS surveyor may use several methods to determine if the Clifton home in question is in danger.

Flooding can increase the likelihood of water entering a house, such as via landscaping or paved areas sloping towards the property. Section J of the survey report contains details, where applicable, of flooding risks found within the boundaries of the house or on adjacent sites. The house surveyor will usually recommend that the property purchasers seek legal advice on any related information mentioned in the report.
