HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to select a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a property in Oadby and which would be cheaper?

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

If the Oadby property is an apartment, or is a period property, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out any alterations, RICS recommend you book a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap but it does offer a thorough analysis of the Oadby property's state of repair and it includes advice on defects and maintenance options .

Damage resulting from flooding

When buying in Oadby, should we be concerned about a flood risk, and will the home surveyor look for flooding damage?

Flooding has blighted the lives of thousands of homeowners in Oadby and across the country. If you are planning to buy in a flood-affected area, a property survey will inform your decision. A flood warning service, with regular updates, is operated by the Environment Agency. The property survey may also, where appropriate, make recommendations for repair work or improved flood protection.An awareness of characteristics of the Oadby area likely to affect the home also enables the RICS surveyor to advise flooding may

be a risk. Also included on Environment Agency's flood warning are details of local rivers and other bodies of water prone to flooding.

Roof defects identified during a survey

The agent mentioned that the had been issues with wet rot. What aspects of the attic will be checked?

Homes in Oadby in good condition will suffer roofing problems. All aspects of the roof should be reviewed, from the gables to the parapet walls. The are also numerous flat-roofed properties in Oadby, including many apartment blocks. In these cases, the property surveyors will look for a range of signs, including badly installed felting.

High quotes for roofing jobs (such as felting a flat roof) may have scared off some homeowners from carrying out necessary work. In extreme cases, this may be the reason for the sale, so buyers must be vigilant and employ the services of a qualified surveyor before the exchange of contracts. If a estimate for roofing work is required, a contractor can provide one. Contact Wells W S of 16 Linden Dr, Leicester, LE5 6AH on 0116-241 2212 for a quote.
