HomeBuyer Report

Should we go for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a home in Lake District and which is cheaper?

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

If the Lake District property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any alterations, RICS recommend you choose a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap, however it does give comprehensive details of the Lake District property's state of repair as well as an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

Building Surveys on houses

What are the benefits to get a full structural survey in Lake District as opposed to a HomeBuyer Report when considering a substantially modified cottage?

Although now often described as Full Structural Surveys by many agents and buyers - the correct term is actually now Building Surveys If buying an unusual property such as a dilapidated Lake District house - this is the correct RICS survey to complete.

Typically a couple of days after a thorough site survey of any accessible parts of the house a written report (pdf and written copy) will be sent to the prospective buyer giving in depth and critical insight in relation to the state of repair of the house. There will be several limitations

with any survey because a RICS surveyor cannot (unless safe to do so) open up the fabric of the of the Lake District building for example removing the contents of cupboards.

Roof defects identified during a survey

I am going to put in an offer in on a home in Lake District, and we expect to budget something for roof maintenance. What does the surveyor in Lake District look into during the survey?

This is a common concern for purchasers who have had to put up with weeks of scaffolding around their home while work is underway. Many residential properties will suffer roof maintenance problems, such as damp. From the gables to the valley gutters, the status of the whole roof should be reviewed, and any defects addressed as soon as possible.

Upkeep can be the cause of serious accidents, which is why modern contractors refuse to work without scaffolding. Once the surveyor has delivered their report, consider arranging a quote from a Lake District roofing contractor for the job itself.
