HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to book a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a house in Dunholme and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey, however it is essentially the same.

If the Dunholme property is an apartment, or is a period property, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make substantial modifications on the Dunholme property, you should you choose a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap, but it does give a thorough analysis of the Dunholme property's condition along with advice on structural defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

Deteriorated timber

For a HomeBuyer Report on a Dunholme property what effect will a Condition rating 2 have on 'E8 - Other joinery and finishes' ?

They are visually inspected with the aid of binoculars where appropriate. Any timber or PVC cladding fixed to the main walling will be investigated. Ageing wood sidings is one example. Condition rating 2 suggests that the aspect of the home in question will need some work, but this may not be urgent. Parts of the report which do not apply to the specific home being surveyed

will be indicated with a 'NI', or 'not inspected'. Irrelevant subsections of the HomeBuyer Report, like an assessment of a conservatory where the home in question does not have one, are disregarded.

Damage caused by high rainfall

How will we know what impact will heavy rainfall have on our new building? Will the Dunholme home buyers survey report on this?

Rainfall is a fact of life in the UK, however, rainfall and the effect it can have on houses in Dunholme are usually overlooked. If you have only visited the house in good weather, problems are unlikely to be visible. Blocked rainwater goods can result in hazardous mould.

Whether buying in Dunholme or elsewhere, difficult downspouts does not necessarily mean that you need to pull out. Such matters are often simple to resolve, if caught early, unless they are not unblocked on a regular basis. The damage will steadily get harder to remedy, so do not be tempted to ignore the signs.

Gas flame

Does the Dunholme surveyor check the serviceability of the gas supply?

A qualified surveyor will locate and visually inspect any accessible parts of the gas system. The survey will include whether the mains is connected for instance, as well as gas connected appliances or installations for example - flue/chimney maintenance. If there are any fittings they won't actually be taken off. Most people are aware that gas is potentially dangerous, should there be any worries relating to gas installations or if you smell gas, contact a gas safe engineer.
