HomeBuyer Report

Should I book a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a property in Dawlish and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey and is basically the same the same comprehensive survey.

If the Dawlish property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out substantial modifications, RICS advise you carry out a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap, but it does give you a thorough analysis of the Dawlish property's general condition as well as including advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

Damage caused by high rainfall

What effect may heavy rain have on a building? Will the RICS surveyor in Dawlish report on this?

Regular rainfall is common in Dawlish and across the country, but heavy rain and the effect it can have on buildings in Dawlish are not given more thought. If you have only seen the property you intend to purchase in dry conditions, issues may have been hidden. That is not to say that drainage problems should cause you to reconsider a purchase. They are usually a simple matter to fix. If not cared for, the resulting damage can lower the value of the property and will get increasingly difficult to successfully resolve.

Damage resulting from flooding

Will our Dawlish house surveyor inquire into flooding?

The impact of flooding, both in the region of Dawlish and nationwide, is a serious concern for owners, and owning a property in Dawlish in or near a high-risk area can mean higher insurance premiums. The Environment Agency maintain a flood risk alert service, with regular updated risk assessments.

Flood water can enter a home through several routes, including air bricks. An awareness of characteristics of the Dawlish area likely to affect the home also enables the property surveyor to advise flooding may be a risk. The property surveyor will usually recommend that the home buyers seek legal advice on any related information mentioned in the report.

Roof defects identified during a survey

Mould brings up bad memories for us. What will our Dawlish property surveyor investigate as part of the survey?

Property in and around Dawlish in good condition may be exposed to roofing woes, like dry rot. From the fascias to the wind braces, the status of the whole roof should be reviewed, and any defects addressed as soon as possible.

Expensive quotes for roofing jobs (such as re-covering asphalt) may have scared off some homeowners from carrying out necessary work. In extreme cases, this may be the reason for the sale, so buyers must be vigilant and employ the services of a qualified surveyor before the exchange of contracts. It may be advisable to source an estimate for any work prior to exchange.
