HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to choose a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a property in Crook Log and which is the cheapest?

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

If the Crook Log property is an apartment, or is a period property, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials, you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out any major works on the property, you should you select a Building Survey. This option is less cheap, however it does offer comprehensive details of the Crook Log property's state of repair and it includes an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

Overgrown flat roof with weeds

On a Crook Log HomeBuyer Report can you give examples of Condition rating 2 defects affecting 'E2 - Roof coverings' ?

Section E2 defects are comprehensively checked, if these parts of the property are easy to view or easy to access. Signs of gravel erosion on the roof, for example, would be reported here.

The home buyer report is intended to be easy to read and understand, with a minimum of technical jargon. Three colour coded ratings give an understanding of the severity of any defects or points of interest included in the report. A condition rating of two means that the element covered will need work at some point. The condition of this particular aspect of the property is unlikely to require urgent work, however.

Damage caused by high rainfall

How important is it that we consider gutters, and does our home buyers survey mention it? Where there is a problem, what should we do?

The impact of climate change is widely reported, yet the effect which wet weather has on homes in Crook Log is overlooked by home buyers. Signs that rainwater goods are under performing include streaks of dirt down the outside of guttering. Blocked rainwater goods can result in penetrating damp.

These issues are, generally speaking, straightforward to remedy, if not neglected. 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.
