HomeBuyer Report

Should I opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a house in Hinckley and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey, however it is basically the same the same survey.

If the Hinckley property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make any alterations, it would be better that you choose a Building Survey instead. This survey is not as cheap but it will provide you with exhaustive analysis of the Hinckley property's condition and it includes advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

Roof defects identified during a survey

Mould brings up bad memories for us. What does the surveyor look into during the survey?

Homes in Hinckley in good condition will suffer difficulties with the roof, for example, dry rot. Every element should be checked, e.g. sheeting. Difficulties can often arise in the case of flat roofs, caused by a slope of less than 12 to 15 degrees.

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. It may be advisable to source an estimate for any work prior to exchange.
