HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to have a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a property in Romsey and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey, although it is effectively the same.

If the Romsey property is an apartment, or is a period property, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any works or an extension on the property, RICS recommend you choose a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it will offer an in-depth analysis of the Romsey property's state of repair as well as including advice on defects , repairs as well as maintenance options .

Roof defects identified during a survey

The vendor mentioned that the had been issues with damage to the parapet, and we are sensitive to the cost of roof repairs. What does a Romsey house surveyor investigate as part of the survey?

Residential property in Romsey in good condition can, to the disappointment of their would-be owners, still suffer roofing woes, like ponding. From the rafters to the ridge flashing, the status of the whole roof should be reviewed. Factors like literally being flat. An incline of at least '1 to 80' is recommended are particularly troublesome for flat roofed property.

Roof upkeep can be the cause of serious accidents, which is why modern contractors refuse to work without scaffolding. If a estimate for roofing work is required, a Romsey roofing specialist can provide one.
