Need a Home Survey ? Which one is the right choice?

  • House suitable for a HomeBuyer Report

    Homebuyer Report in Glastonbury

    A Homebuyer Report is the best choice when purchasing a home built from conventional materials such as brick and tile, in reasonable repair and not over 100 years in age.

  • Property suitable for a Building Survey

    Building Survey in Glastonbury

    A Building Survey (often referred to as a Full Structural Survey in Glastonbury) is also conducted by a MRICS/FRICS accredited surveyor but is more thorough. Choose this for non standard property such as timber frame properties.

  • Surveyor carrying out a Property Valuation

    Property Valuation Report in Glastonbury

    This is an independent valuation . This is typically chosen by cash buyers or someone needing a formal valuation e.g. matrimonial dispute.

HomeBuyer Report

Should I select a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a house in Glastonbury and which is the cheapest?

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

If the Glastonbury property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out significant alterations on the Glastonbury property, RICS advise you go for a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap but it does offer comprehensive details of the Glastonbury property's condition as well as an opinion on defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

Roof defects identified during a survey

Poor roof maintenance has created issues for us in a house we used to own. What aspects of the roofing will be considered?

This often causes anxiety for buyers in Glastonburywho have had to put up with weeks of scaffolding around their home while work is underway. Homes throughout Glastonbury can, to the disappointment of their would-be owners, still suffer difficulties with the roof. From purlins to parapet walls, the whole roof should be reported on. Factors like literally being flat. An incline of at least '1 to 80' is recommended are particularly troublesome for flat roofed property.

It may be inconvenient to employ scaffolding to perform repairs, especially in the busy parts of Glastonbury, but it is a health and safety necessity. A contractor in Glastonbury with a good reference should be able to assist with a quote. Contact Variform (SouthWest) Ltd of 33 Maynard Ter, Clutton, Bristol, BS39 5PW on 01761 453766 for a quote.

Conservatory

For the Glastonbury HomeBuyer Report, what impact will a Condition rating 2 have on conservatory and porches?

A condition rating of two means that the element covered will need work at some point. This may not be urgent, however.

E7 elements are visually inspected. Inappropriate use of internal doors in doorways leading outside will be considered too. Missing or undersized landings is an example.

Timber damage by insect larvae

There may be an infestation at the property we're buying, but we are not certain. Will a residential surveyor look into this?

Any questions about pests affecting a Glastonbury building may not be asked by the lawyer. Unfortunately, the impact to a house and its inhabitants can carry serious health risks and affect its value. Evidence may not be easy to find, for example, cluster, or swarming flies, are often found in lofts and can be a serious, seasonal annoyance if not treated. Treatment for pest problems may include use of insecticides.

If investigation does uncover a problem, consider speaking to the seller to ask that they deal with the issue prior to exchange.
