HomeBuyer Report

Should I choose a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a home in Upper Clapton and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey but is basically the same the same survey.

If the Upper Clapton property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any works or an extension, it would be better that you book a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap however it does give comprehensive details of the Upper Clapton property's general condition along with more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

Timber damage by insect larvae

Will pests affect the purchase price of a Upper Clapton building - Will the Home Buyers Survey investigate this?

Infestations can range from the mild and harmless, to the seriously harmful. Unfortunately, the impact to a house and its inhabitants can affect the health of residents and affect its value. An affected home may not always be easy to identify. As an example, cockroaches hide during the day, in light-fittings, beneath cracks in floor tiles or behind appliances. You may not spot them until moving in. Remedies to insect infestation can include destruction of tainted materials. If investigation does uncover a problem, consider speaking to the seller to ask that they deal with the issue prior to exchange.
