Which Property Survey is the right choice?

  • House suitable for a HomeBuyer Report

    Homebuyer Report in Long Eaton

    The RICS Homebuyer Report should be selected when planning to buy a property constructed from conventional materials such as brick and tile, in reasonable order and less than 100 years old.

  • Property suitable for a Building Survey

    Building Survey in Long Eaton

    A Building Survey (previously called a Full Structural Survey in Long Eaton) is also carried out by a MRICS or FRICS chartered surveyor but is more exhaustive. Choose this when buying a non standard e.g. stone homes.

  • Surveyor carrying out a Property Valuation

    Property Valuation Report in Long Eaton

    This is an impartial valuation . This is usually chosen by cash buyers or someone requiring a formal valuation e.g. matrimonial dispute.

HomeBuyer Report

Should I choose a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a house in Long Eaton and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same survey.

If the Long Eaton property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out alterations, it would be better that you choose a Building Survey instead. The Building Survey is less cheap but it does give you a thorough analysis of the Long Eaton property's condition and it includes more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Stone block wall damage

We are buying a conversion with Portland stone walls. Are there specific factors to consider?

Purchasers in Long Eaton should be aware that stone walls can be much weaker than they appear. Defects such as stone faces affect many stone-walled buildings. The two main forms of mortared stone wall construction found in Long Eaton are regular and irregular. Dry stone construction is used in garden walls and field boundaries, but is rarely employed for inhabited structures. Different stone types will also decay a different rates based on environmental conditions. For example, granite is more water resistant that most other stones. Guidelines for better stone wall upkeep include repointing of loose or crumbling mortar.

Timber damage by insect larvae

We are concerned about an infestation - What should we do?

Long Eaton homes are generally free of pest problems, but it is inadvisable to risk buying without more information if you have suspicions. Regrettably, pest problems can be very expensive to resolve and affect the health of residents. It is vital that buyers consider this oft-overlooked aspect when making an offer.

Signs may not be evident for weeks or months. For example, woodworm can be extremely destructive, but fortunately their 'tunnels' in timber and wood furniture are usually quite easy to spot. Treatment for a serious infestation may include professional cleaning or removal of infected furniture. If you strongly suspect an issue with woodworm, or any pest, speak to your Long Eaton surveyor

Damage resulting from flooding

Would our residential surveyor investigate any flooding damage?

It is estimated that over two million houses and flats are in danger of flooding damage and the value of a property can decrease if in an exposed area, even if it has never flooded. It is easily possible to assess whether a house is susceptible to flooding via any of a number of routes. The Home Buyers Survey may also, where appropriate, offer suggestions for better flood defences.

The GroundSure Flood Report is one of several risk screening reports designed to provide an overview of whether a house lies within an area of potential or previous flood risk. The residential surveyor may ask the property owner or occupier about historical floods, although the result of these enquires should be treated as a guide only.
