HomeBuyer Report

Should I get a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a house in Eaglescliffe and which is cheaper?

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

If the Eaglescliffe property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make significant alterations, RICS advise you book a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap however it will give you a more detailed analysis of the Eaglescliffe property's general condition along with advice on defects and maintenance options .

Damage caused by high rainfall

Should we check drainage? Also, if there is work that needs to be done, will they be disruptive to fix?

Despite England's reputation for wet weather the effect which wet weather has on a structure is not considered by property buyers. If you have only seen the house in on a dry day, obvious defects may be harder to find. This can lead to rising damp.

That is not to say that drainage problems should cause you to reconsider a purchase. They are usually a simple matter to resolve for a reasonable cost. However, if the drains are not cleared out regularly, 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.

Traditionally built property

What do I need to take notice of when buying an older property? Will the age of the house be an issue?

Many purchasers have considered buying a unique or characterful property. Vernacular architecture, however, can worry purchasers. Eaglescliffe property built with traditional or "vernacular" techniques can be surprisingly expensive to upkeep. It is often the case that expert knowledge is necessary. Traditional materials may also need to be sourced, particularly in the case of Eaglescliffe listed buildings.

Building Surveys on houses

What are the advantages for having the full structural survey instead of a HomeBuyer Report if purchasing a neglected property?

Albeit commonly, and incorrectly, described as Full Structural Surveys, the correct term for this type of survey is now Building Surveys You would be best advised to choose a Building Survey in relation to the house described. A HomeBuyer Report goes into enough detail if buying a 60 year old or less unmodified house of conventional construction materials and methods.

You should be aware of certain survey no go areas come with a Building Survey insofar as a RICS surveyor wont be able to force or open up the structure of the building for example, or assess the serviceability of energy sources.
