Which HomeBuyers Survey is right for my potential house purchase ?

  • House suitable for a HomeBuyer Report

    Homebuyer Report in Bishopsworth

    A Homebuyer Report is the best choice when planning to purchase a home made of conventional building materials i.e. tile and brick, in reasonable repair and not over 100 years in age.

  • Property suitable for a Building Survey

    Building Survey in Bishopsworth

    The RICS Building Survey (which used to be called a Full Structural Survey in Bishopsworth) is also carried out by a RICS accredited surveyor but is more exhaustive. Select this option for unconventional such as timber wall properties.

  • Surveyor carrying out a Property Valuation

    Property Valuation Report in Bishopsworth

    This is an independent valuation of the property. It is usually chosen by mortgage free purchasers or anyone needing a formal valuation e.g. a dispute.

HomeBuyer Report

Should I book a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a house in Bishopsworth and which is cheaper?

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

If the Bishopsworth property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction, then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any alterations on the property, you should you choose a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap, but it will give you exhaustive analysis of the Bishopsworth property's state of repair and it includes advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

For more detailed advice why not obtain a Bishopsworth Home Survey Quote on our site or call us 0800 038 6667 to speak to one of our advisers.

Damage caused by high rainfall

How will we know what impact may rainfall have on our new Bishopsworth property? Where there is work that needs to be done, what should we do?

I find it odd that damp weather and the effect it can have on homes are not given enough thought. If you have only seen the new home on a dry day, obvious defects may be harder to find. Signs that gutters are damaged include corroded downspouts, and may lead to hazardous mould. Fortunately, drainage problems are usually easy

to repair fairly cheaply. If not cared for, however, the damage will impact both the home's value, and the residents' enjoyment of the property.

Damage resulting from flooding

Is there a flood risk in Bishopsworth, and will the home surveyor check for water damage?

Flooding has become a serious concern, more so after it was reported that last year was the second wettest on record (source: The Met Office), and home buyers cannot know that insurance against flooding will continue to be available. A flood risk alert service, with regular updates, is operated by the Environment Agency, and a property surveyor will advise on repairs or preventative measures. Details relating to signs of flooding may be reported in Section J of the HomeBuyer Report, the data used to compile third-party flood assessments also takes into account flood defences and historic claims.

Landfill site near home

What should we be concerned about if buying a home close to a rubbish dump

Landfill Sites come in many shapes and sizes e.g. hazardous refuse disposal. Nobody would want to live near one (most people do live near one). Worries might include leaking underground tanks from petrol stations for example. Potential health problems such as downs syndrome have been linked to landfill sites .

Surveyors will notice structural defects linked to the landfill. Your lawyer will commission conveyancing and environmental searches of the Landmark databases in addition to Bristol Local Authority and advise you .
