HomeBuyer Report

Should we choose a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a home in Dover and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same comprehensive survey.

If the Dover property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction, then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out any works or an extension, RICS recommend you choose a Building Survey instead. This more detailed survey is less cheap, but it does give you a thorough analysis of the Dover property's general condition as well as advice on defects , repairs and maintenance options .

Damage resulting from flooding

We understand this property is located on a flood plain. Is there a major flood risk? Would our home surveyor check for possible flooding damage, or whether flooding has affected other houses on the street?

The lives of many home owners in Dover and across the UK have been affected by floods, and insurance premiums. can be significantly affected for houses and flats in flood-risk areas. The Environment Agency maintain a flood alert service, with regular updated risk assessments. Flood water can enter a house through a number of routes, including air bricks, poorly fitted doors and windows, and seepage through external walls. An awareness of characteristics of the Dover area likely to affect the house also enables the property surveyor to advise flooding may be a risk. The property surveyor may ask the agent about historical floods, although the result of these enquires should be treated as a guide only.
