HomeBuyer Report

Should we opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a home in Addiscombe and of the 3, which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey, however it is essentially the same comprehensive survey.

If the Addiscombe property is a flat or maisonette, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out an extension, RICS advise you go for a Building Survey instead. This more detailed survey is not as cheap however it does give you a thorough analysis of the Addiscombe property's state of repair in addition to advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Damage caused by high rainfall

How will we know what effect should rain have on our new property in Addiscombe, and does our Addiscombe property surveyor mention it? Also, if there is damage, will they be troublesome to fix?

The impact of climate change is widely reported, yet the effect which heavy rain has on homes is rarely paid due attention. For example, spalling masonry will likely suggest that the gutters are blocked. This can lead to overflowing or blocked sewage.

In most cases, this is quite easy to remedy.

Surveyors don't value things like furnishings, for example curtains.
