Need a Building Survey? Which one is the right choice?

  • House suitable for a HomeBuyer Report

    The RICS Homebuyer Report should be chosen when purchasing a property constructed from conventional building materials i.e. tile and brick, not dilapidated and build after 1900.

  • Property suitable for a Building Survey

    Building Survey in Upney

    A RICS Building Survey (often referred to as a Full Structural Survey in Upney) will also be conducted by a MRICS/FRICS chartered surveyor and is more comprehensive. Opt for this for non standard property such as wood frame houses.

  • Surveyor carrying out a Property Valuation

    This is an independent valuation of the property. It is usually chosen by mortgage free buyers or someone needing a formal valuation e.g. a dispute.

Damage resulting from flooding

Will our Upney surveyor consider possible flooding damage?

Flooding in Upney can cause severe damage to both contents and property. Those planning to buy in affected areas should weigh up their exposure. A flood warning service, with regular updates, is operated by the Environment Agency, and a property surveyor will advise on repairs or preventative measures. Section J of the survey report contains details, where applicable, of flooding risks found within the boundaries of the home or on adjacent sites, the data used to compile third-party flood assessments also takes into account flood defences and historic claims.

According to the Environment Agency, no recent flood warnings were found for Upney.

Traditionally built property

We are purchasing a converted cow-house. What impact will the slate roof have on regular maintenance?

Many buyers have looked at purchasing a home with character, such as a Victorian home. A building's age, however, can sometimes be an issue, and Upney homes built using traditional methods can be unexpectedly hard to upkeep. You should bear in mind that specialist knowledge may be needed. Traditional materials may also need to be sourced, particularly in the case of Grade I listed property. This may mean expensive ongoing repairs.

Overgrown flat roof with weeds

For the Upney HomeBuyer Report, what effect can a Condition Rating 1 have on roof coverings?

Condition rating one indicates that no repairs are necessary. This rating does not, however, mean that no future maintenance is required. Regular upkeep may still be appropriate or even necessary. The home buyer report is intended to be easy to read and understand, unlike less prescriptive surveys. These may offer more complex detail, but they are also less useful for home buyers in Upney deciding whether or not to purchase a home. Colour coded ratings are used to communicate how concerning each aspect of the report is. Section E2 defects are checked, provided that access is possible. If access cannot be arranged, e.g. the property is a flat, the surveyor will be unable to include this in the report. A torn or punctured asphalt roof would be reported here, for example.
