Which Home Buyers Survey should you choose?

  • House suitable for a HomeBuyer Report

    Homebuyer Report in Prestbury

    A Homebuyer Report is the right choice if planning to purchase a home built from standard materials such as brick and tile, in reasonable order and constructed after 1900.

  • Property suitable for a Building Survey

    Building Survey in Prestbury

    A Building Survey (previously called a Full Structural Survey in Prestbury) is also conducted by a RICS surveyor but is more exhaustive. Choose this when buying a non standard e.g. timber frame properties.

  • Surveyor carrying out a Property Valuation

    Property Valuation Report in Prestbury

    This is a professional surveyor valuation of the property. This report is usually chosen by cash purchasers or anyone needing a formal valuation e.g. for probate.

HomeBuyer Report

Should I select a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a house in Prestbury and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey but is basically the same the same level of survey.

If the Prestbury property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out significant alterations, you should you choose a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap, however it does give you a more detailed analysis of the Prestbury property's general condition and it includes advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

Gas flame

Does the qualified surveyor check out the state of repair of the gas supply?

A qualified RICS surveyor will locate and visually look at any easily accessible parts of the gas system. This means things like the condition of the meter where relevant, in addition to gas associated fittings, for instance balanced flues. The Prestbury RICS surveyor won't remove any external fittings and he or she won't carry out any tests of any kind on the system. Most people are aware that gas is potentially fatal, should there be any concerns about gas, call an engineer.

Damage caused by high rainfall

Should I check drainage? Are repairs going to be expensive?

I find it odd that damp weather and the effect it can have on your property are ignored. One indication that drainage systems are blocked is flaking or efflorescence on external walls, but you may wish to ask your surveyor for more detail. In most cases, problems with drains are usually easy to resolve, if maintenance is taken seriously, unless they are not cared for. The damage will steadily get harder to remedy, so do not be tempted to ignore the signs.

Roof defects identified during a survey

I have put in an offer on a Prestbury structure with a loft conversion, and we are sensitive to the cost of roof repairs. What should we investigate during the survey?

This often causes anxiety for property purchasers who have had to shell out for major repairs in the past. A large number of properties could unfortunately be experiencing roofing problems, such as. All aspects of the roof should be reviewed, from the trusses to the collar ties. Factors like badly installed felting are particularly troublesome for flat roofed property.

Repairs 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. Contact Wayne Middleton Roofing of 15 Angus Walk, Macclesfield, SK10 3EE on 01625 827736 for an estimate.
