Which Home Survey should you choose?

  • Property suitable for a Building Survey

    Building Survey in Wilberfoss

    A Building Survey (often referred to as a Full Structural Survey in Wilberfoss) is also carried out by a MRICS/FRICS qualified surveyor and is more exhaustive. Opt for this when buying a non standard e.g. wood frame buildings.

  • Surveyor carrying out a Property Valuation

HomeBuyer Report

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

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

If the Wilberfoss property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make significant alterations, it would be better that you carry out a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it does offer a more detailed analysis of the Wilberfoss property's state of repair along with an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

Timber damage by insect larvae

We are buying a Wilberfoss home but are worried about vermin. What can we do?

Wilberfoss houses will often be free of major pest problems. However, if you do have specific concerns, you should seek advice. Regrettably, pest problems can be costly to fix and carry serious health risks. Signs may not be obvious, a moth infestation may not be found for months after purchase, and even if treated, may never be fully eradicated. As some pest problems can be very stubborn, knowing the risks, and chance of success before you buy is essential. If investigation does uncover a problem, consider speaking to the seller to ask that they deal with the issue prior to exchange.

Landfill site near home

What should we be fearful of when purchasing a building proximate to a refuse tip

Landfill Sites come in many shapes and sizes e.g. commercial rubbish disposal. No one wants to live near one (4/5 people live under 2km away from one). Risks include heavy metals. Potential health concerns such as cancer have been associated with landfill sites .

Surveys in Wilberfoss will examine structural defects connected with the landfill. Your solicitor will carry out environmental searches of the Landmark database as well as East Riding of Yorkshire Local Authority and address any concerns you may have .

Overgrown flat roof with weeds

On the HomeBuyer Report what impact will a green light rating have on 'E2 - Roof coverings' ?

One example issue could be a torn or punctured asphalt roof. Roof coverings will be reviewed, if these parts of the property are easy to view or easy to access. If it is not possible to properly access this area for inspection (if, for example, the property is a flat), the surveyor will make note of this in their report. RICS HomeBuyer Reports are transparent, detailed surveys of residential property, with a minimum of technical jargon. A 'traffic light' system of colour coding is used to confirm how concerning each aspect of the report is. Elements of the house which the surveyor has determined to be in a good state of repair are awarded a condition rating of 1, but this does not mean that no future work is required. Seasonal checks may still be appropriate to prevent deterioration. Parts of the report which do not apply to the specific Wilberfoss property being surveyed will be indicated with a 'NI', or 'not inspected'. RICS have mandated a specific format for the HomeBuyer Report to aid the creation of a useful and comprehensive report for both surveyors and home buyers. As a result, some sections may not be relevant to every property, such as reporting on the condition of the roof of a ground floor flat.
