HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to go for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a home in High Peak and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey and is effectively the same.

If the High Peak property is a flat or maisonette, or is over 100 years old, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction, you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make any major works, RICS recommend you commission a Building Survey. This option is less cheap, but it will provide you with comprehensive details of the High Peak property's state of repair as well as including advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

For more detailed advice you can get a High Peak Home Survey Quote via our website or call 0800 038 6667 to speak to a member of our team.

Damage caused by high rainfall

Should we consider drainage? Will the High Peak building survey report on this? Also, if there is damage, will they be expensive to fix?

As a frequent surveyor of property in the area, I find it strange that heavy rainfall and the effect it can have on homes are

not given more thought. One indication that gutters are worth a closer look is leaves or other vegetation causing a blockage. If you are concerned, consider asking the surveyor for more information.

Fortunately, these defects are generally easy to resolve.

Gas flame

Will the qualified RICS surveyor advise on the condition or the safety of the gas mains supply?

A qualified surveyor will visually check any easily accessible parts of the gas system. This means things like whether the meter is in an escape route at the home, as well as gas related appliances e.g. fixed external ventilation hearths. Your High Peak surveyor will not remove any fittings and surveyors are not qualified to run any tests of any kind on the system or appliances. Gas is potentially unsafe, if you have any concerns about gas, contact a gas safe engineer.

Traditionally built property

We are buying a 17th Century converted barn. What impact will the residence's thatched roof have on maintenance?

Vernacular, or traditional, architecture can create issues for homeowners. Houses built with traditional methods can be a drain to maintain. You should bear in mind that specialist knowledge may be needed. Materials suitable for the work may also need to be sourced.
