HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to select a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a property in Gorleston and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, although it is effectively the same level of survey.

If the Gorleston property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any major works, RICS recommend you choose a Building Survey instead. This option is less cheap, but it will offer a more detailed analysis of the Gorleston property's general condition along with an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

Timber damage by insect larvae

There may be pests at the building in Gorleston we're buying, but we are not certain. What advice should we get?

Questions regarding the infestation of a Gorleston building may not be raised during the conveyancing. Pests quite literally come in all shapes and sizes, and can be more difficult to treat than many buyers realise. Signs may not be obvious, a moth infestation may not be found for months after purchase, and even if treated, may never be fully eradicated. Treatment for a serious infestation may include insecticides and removal of infected furniture.
