HomeBuyer Report

Should I choose a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a property in Edingale and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey but is basically the same the same.

If the Edingale property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make any alterations, it would be better that you go for a Building Survey instead. This more detailed survey is not as cheap, however it does give you a thorough analysis of the Edingale property's condition as well as including advice on structural defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

Window frame

On the HomeBuyer Report, can you give examples of an red light rating defects affecting windows?

Red, or condition rating 3, defects are serious, or require immediate attention. In some cases, such a rating may indicate further expert opinion is needed before an accurate statement can be given. The home buyer report is intended to be easy to read and understand, with a minimum of technical jargon. A 'traffic light' system of colour coding is used to confirm the severity of defects uncovered during the survey. For a Edingale home, one example could be water leaks around window or door frames. Where practicable, all windows are to be opened and closed, but not forced open, and vulnerable areas closely examined. The surveyor should make notes and advise the client whether it is possible to operate the window transoms/openings satisfactorily.

Damage resulting from flooding

Would our building survey inquire into indications of flood damage?

Heavy rain, burst riverbanks and clogged drainage can cause floods, and home purchasers and owners are understandably concerned. It is strongly recommended that a home is protected, before flooding occurs, and a property surveyor will advise on repairs or preventative measures. The GroundSure Flood Report is one of several risk screening reports designed to provide an overview of whether a residence lies within an area of potential or previous flood risk. The surveyor may ask the current owner if the residence has previously flooded. Note that the response to such enquires should not be exclusively relied upon.

Roof defects identified during a survey

I am going to put in an offer in on a house in Edingale. I am particularly concerned about the state of the roof. Which issues relating to the house's roof will be looked into for the survey?

Homes in Edingale with no other major issues could unfortunately be experiencing difficulties with the roof. All aspects of the roof should be reviewed, from the concrete tiles to the tie beams. Your house surveyors may then recommend that some faults need urgent attention.

The maintenance of a roof need not always be costly, but they should be budgeted for carefully. A building survey prior to exchange is highly recommended, so that you fully understand what expenses you will be facing. A contractor with a recommendation from a friend or family member can provide a quote. Speak to Elite Roofing Ltd of 24 Burton Old Rd West, Lichfield, WS13 6EN on 01543 415201 for an estimate.
