Which Home Buyers Survey should you select?

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a house in Woodstock and of the 3, which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey but is basically the same the same level of survey.

If the Woodstock property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any major works, you should you select a Building Survey instead. This survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it does give an in-depth analysis of the Woodstock property's general condition in addition to more detailed advice on defects , repairs and maintenance options .

Other external areas of the property

On the HomeBuyer Report, can you give some examples of a green light rating defects for factors covered in Section E?

Condition rating one indicates that no repairs are necessary. Nevertheless, the surveyor may still recommend that regular upkeep is carried out. Not inspected' is used to indicate those subsections of Section E which do not apply to the property. If a property does not have a porch or conservatory, for example, these aspects of the report will be omitted.

Miscellaneous external elements are including here that do not sit comfortably elsewhere in section E. Your surveyor can provide more details if required. A conservatory floor suffering wet rot or other damage is one defect applicable to this section.

Building Surveys on houses

Should we opt for a full structural survey before investing in a dilapidated Victorian house close to Woodstock?

Full Structural Surveys are now called Building Surveys. Select the Building Survey if you are planning to buy the house referred to. The HomeBuyer Report has enough detail for a non period unmodified Woodstock home of standard construction materials and methods.

Be aware that certain restrictions are integral with a property survey as a local surveyor is not able to (unless owners consent provided) open up the structure of the Woodstock house nor can he/she assess safety of gas sources.

Damage caused by high rainfall

How will we know what effect will high levels of rainfall have on our new Woodstock house? Could damaged gutters lower the property value?

Rainfall is a fact of life in the UK, however, high levels of rainfall and the effect it can have on a house are often overlooked. One indication that downspouts are blocked is leaves or other vegetation causing a blockage.

Fortunately, drainage problems are usually easy to resolve, if caught early. If left untreated, however, the damage will impact both the home's value, and the residents' enjoyment of the property.
