HomeBuyer Report

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

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey and is essentially the same level of survey.

If the Cannington property is a flat or maisonette, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials, you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any substantial modifications on the property, RICS recommend you select a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it will offer comprehensive details of the Cannington property's state of repair as well as including advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

Damage caused by high rainfall

How will we know what impact does heavy rain have on our new Cannington property, and does our Cannington property surveyor mention it? Also, if there is necessary work, will they be expensive to fix?

Rainfall is a fact of life in the UK, however, the impact rainfall can have on a residence is overlooked by buyers. As an example, flaking or efflorescence on external walls suggest that the gutters

are worth a closer look. In most cases, problems with drains are usually easy to fix if dealt with quickly. Where this is not cleared out regularly, the damage becomes increasing costly to remedy.

Damage resulting from flooding

Will the home buyers survey look for possible water damage?

Recent conflict between insurers has the government has caused a great deal of uncertainty. Those planning to buy in affected areas should weigh up their exposure. Your RICS surveyor may use several methods to determine if the property in question is in danger.

Flooding can increase the likelihood of water entering a house in Cannington, such as via badly fitted air bricks.

Preventative measures can include costly but effective solutions e.g. raised door thresholds, the data used to compile third-party flood assessments also takes into account flood defences and historic claims.

Building Surveys on houses

Is it worth paying more for a full structural survey when carrying out due diligence on thirties cottage in Cannington?

The Building Survey is now the correct term for the Structural Survey following its renaming a while ago by the RICS. Opt for a RICS Building Survey for the property you describe. The HomeBuyer Report has enough detail for a non period unmodified Cannington home of normal building materials. Be aware that certain survey no go areas exist with any survey insofar as a qualified RICS surveyor cannot open up the structure of the house for example, or comment on the regulatory compliance of heating systems.
