HomeBuyer Report

Should we go for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a home in Lynton and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey but is effectively the same level of survey.

If the Lynton property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out any alterations, RICS advise you commission a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap but it does give comprehensive details of the Lynton property's state of repair as well as including more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

Roof defects identified during a survey

The person in the flat below said that mould had been a concern. What advice would the home surveyor give in their report?

Lynton homes with no other major issues can, to the disappointment of their would-be owners, still suffer bowing beams, among a range of other roofing issues. Every element should be checked, e.g. purlins, and any defects addressed as soon as possible.

In the past, roof maintenance would be carried out with just ladders and 'crawler boards'. This practice is terribly unsafe, and contractors today will insist that scaffolding be used. A quote for the work could be sought from a reliable Lynton contractor.

Damage caused by high rainfall

Is rain an issue in Lynton? Could damaged downspouts lower the property value?

Rainfall is a fact of life in the UK, however, the impact rainfall can have on a structure is not given more thought by purchasers. One indication that rainwater goods are blocked is corroded downspouts. Blocked rainwater goods can result in overflowing or blocked sewage.

The good news is that these defects are generally easy to repair, if identified early. Where this is not maintained, the damage becomes increasing costly to remedy.

Building Surveys on houses

What are the reasons for having a full structural survey rather than a HomeBuyer Report when considering a converted townhouse?

Albeit often described as Full Structural Surveys they have actually been superseded by Building Surveys If you are buying an unusual Lynton property such as a neglected house, this is now the best survey. The report (set out in the surveyor's individual format) will outline often crucial details concerning the homes standard of construction and repair as well as any defects after a thorough inspection.

. Boundary walls and fences will, in addition, be looked at.
