HomeBuyer Report

Should we go for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a property in Emersons Green and which would be cheaper?

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

If the Emersons Green property is a flat or maisonette, or is a period property, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out any alterations on the property, it would be better that you go for a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap, but it does give exhaustive analysis of the Emersons Green property's general condition along with advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

Traditionally built property

My partner and I are purchasing an older cottage in Emersons Green. Will the house's age be a concern?

Damage resulting from flooding

We are purchasing a house in Emersons Green, does the home buyers survey search for possible water damage, or if neighbouring property have been affected?

2012 was the 2nd wettest year on record, and home buyers and owners are understandably concerned. The Environment Agency maintain a flood warning service, with regular updated risk assessments. In addition, the Home Buyers Survey may make recommendations for repair work or improved flood protection.Less expensive preventative measures include air brick covers. The Environment Agency also publish details of previous flood warnings.

Timber damage by insect larvae

We are buying a building but are worried about bugs. How do we investigate further?

Any questions about pests affecting a Emersons Green property may not be asked by the lawyer. Signs may not be obvious. As an example, cockroaches are nocturnal, and challenging to eradicate. Species common to the UK, such as the German Cockroach, are small, and breed rapidly in moist conditions. This makes them both hard to spot, and to treat successfully. Treatment for vermin may include insecticides or removal of infected furniture.
