HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to choose a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a house in Purfleet and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey and is essentially the same survey.

If the Purfleet property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials, then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out any alterations on the property, it would be better that you carry out a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap but it will give exhaustive analysis of the Purfleet property's condition along with information on defects as well as maintenance options .

If in doubt you can get a Purfleet Home Survey Quote on our website or call us 0800 038 6667 to speak to a member of our team.

Damage caused by high rainfall

What effect could rain have on a building? Could it affect the property value?

Both in Purfleet, and throughout the county, rain is so common that buyers rarely think about it. Unfortunately the effect which wet weather has on homes in Purfleet is rarely paid due attention. For example, flaking or efflorescence on external walls indicate that the gutters are at risk, and may lead to overflowing or blocked sewage. These issues are, generally speaking, straightforward to remedy. Where this is poorly maintained, the damage becomes increasing costly to remedy.

Damage resulting from flooding

We're intending to buy in Purfleet. Is there a flood risk, and will the RICS surveyor inquire into signs of flooding damage?

Heavy rain, overflowing waterways, tidal activity and poor drainage could all cause major flooding. If you are planning to buy in a flood-affected area, a Building Survey will inform your decision. A surveyor has a number of options to assess whether a property is vulnerable.

Flooding can increase the likelihood of water entering a residence, such as via loose patio doors. The Building Survey will also include details of any evidence of historical flooding, and may comment generally about the area's propensity to flood, the data used to compile third-party flood assessments also takes into account flood defences and historic claims.

Building Surveys on houses

I am investing in a converted period terraced property in Purfleet - is it necessary to opt for a full structural survey?

The Full Structural Survey is now known as a Building Survey. If contemplating the buying of an altered Purfleet home like a neglected house - it is the most suitable survey to choose. This survey will typically give in depth and often serious advice in relation to the homes construction and uses along with any important technical details after a thorough visual inspection of the inside and outside of the main building. Outside buildings will typically be checked out.
