Looking for a Property Survey ? Which one should you opt for?

  • House suitable for a HomeBuyer Report

    Homebuyer Report in Whitby

    A Homebuyer Report is the right choice when planning to purchase a property constructed from standard building materials i.e. tile & brick, in reasonable repair and less than 100 years old.

  • Property suitable for a Building Survey

HomeBuyer Report

Should we opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a home in Whitby and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same comprehensive survey.

If the Whitby property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out alterations, it would be better that you commission a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it does give you a thorough analysis of the Whitby property's general condition as well as including an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

Damage resulting from flooding

Is there a risk of flooding in Whitby, and can a Whitby home surveyor inquire into flooding damage?

Flooding in Whitby can cause severe damage to both contents and property. If you are planning to buy in a flood-affected area, a Home Buyers Survey will inform your decision. It is strongly recommended that proper precautions are taken, before water damage starts.

Flood water can enter a Whitby home through several routes, including poorly installed doors. An awareness of characteristics of the Whitby area likely to affect the Whitby home also enables the property

surveyor to advise flooding may be a risk. The property surveyor will usually recommend that the home buyers seek legal advice on any related information mentioned in the report.

Building Surveys on maisonettes

Is it best to go for a full structural survey prior to investing in an extended, forties purpose built maisonette in Whitby?

Structural surveys have been renamed by RICS as Building Surveys. The HomeBuyer Report is sufficient if investigating a 60 year old or less Whitby home made out of conventional construction materials. The RICS Building Survey is the advisable selection for the property mentioned. Bear in mind that some limitations exist with the survey as a local Whitby surveyor is not able to open up the fabric of the maisonette for example, or assess the serviceability of energy sources.

Landfill site near home

What should we be worried about when purchasing a home proximate to a refuse landfill site

Landfill Sites come in many shapes and sizes including inert refuse. No one wants to live near one (4/5 people live under 2km away from one). Worries might include leaking underground tanks from petrol stations for example. Potential health problems such as congenital birth defects have been associated to landfill sites .

Whitby RICS surveyors will find structural defects connected with the landfill. Your solicitor will carry out environmental searches of the Environmental Agency data sets and Scarborough Local Authority and address any concerns you may have .
