Which HomeBuyers Survey is the correct choice for my intended property purchase ?

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to select a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a home in Rugeley and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same level of survey.

If the Rugeley property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any major works on the property, you should you carry out a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap however it does give you a thorough analysis of the Rugeley property's general condition as well as including information on defects as well as maintenance options .

Roof defects identified during a survey

The agent said that the had been a problem with subsidence. What aspects of the attic will be looked into for the survey?

This often causes anxiety for property purchasers who have had to put up with weeks of scaffolding around their home while work is underway. Houses across Rugeley can still be subject to roofing problems. From concrete tiles to tie beams, many parts of the roof and loft will be considered. Your RICS surveyors may then recommend that some faults need urgent attention.

Given the high cost of major roof repairs like wholesale replacement, some homeowners may defer maintenance indefinitely. This makes both the cause and the consequences harder and even more expensive to treat when repairs do take place. It may be advisable to source an estimate for any work prior to exchange.

Damage caused by high rainfall

Is wet weather an issue in Rugeley? And could it affect the property value?

As a frequent surveyor of houses in the area, I find it strange that wet weather and the effect it can have on property are rarely paid due attention by home buyers. One indication that rainwater goods are under performing is corroded downspouts. If you are worried, consider asking the surveyor for more information.

Fortunately, problems with drains are usually easy to resolve for a reasonable cost. However, if the drains are untreated or poorly maintained, the resulting damage can lower the value of the property and become increasing harder to repair.

Timber damage by insect larvae

We are buying a Rugeley property but are worried about insects. Is a Home Buyers Survey advisable?

Buyers should be aware that there is no legal obligation for a seller to report on an infestation. Regrettably, infestations can be costly to fix and carry serious health risks. It may not be obvious that a house is suffering a severe pest problem, as evidence can be overlooked, a moth infestation may not be found for months after purchase, and even if treated, may never be fully eradicated. Remedies to pests can include destruction of tainted materials.
