Which Property Survey should you select?

  • House suitable for a HomeBuyer Report

    Homebuyer Report in Crofton

    A Homebuyer Report should be selected if purchasing a home constructed from conventional materials i.e. brick & tile, in reasonable order and less than 100 years old.

  • Property suitable for a Building Survey

    Building Survey in Crofton

    The Building Survey (which used to be called a Full Structural Survey in Crofton) will also be carried out by a MRICS/FRICS surveyor but is more comprehensive. Choose this option when buying a non standard e.g. wood frame properties.

  • Surveyor carrying out a Property Valuation

    Property Valuation Report in Crofton

    This is a professional surveyor valuation of the property. It is chosen by cash buyers or anyone needing a formal valuation e.g. a dispute.

HomeBuyer Report

Should we opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a house in Crofton and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey, however it is basically the same the same survey.

If the Crofton property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any substantial modifications on the Crofton property, it would be better that you commission a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap but it does give comprehensive details of the Crofton property's state of repair along with more detailed advice on defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

Damage caused by high rainfall

Is high levels of rainfall an issue in Crofton, and does our Crofton property surveyor mention it? Can damaged gutters decrease our property's value?

Rainfall is a fact of life in the UK, however, wet weather and the effect it can have on a residence are not given enough thought. Signs that downspouts are under performing include rotten roofing elements. Blocked rainwater goods can result in staining of wallpaper and damp.

Whether buying in Crofton or elsewhere, difficult downspouts does not necessarily mean that you need to pull out. Such matters are often simple to resolve, if maintenance is taken seriously. If poorly maintained, however, the damage will impact both the home's value, and the residents' enjoyment of the property.

Building Surveys on houses

Do we need to conduct a full structural survey when looking into a doer-upper Victorian bungalow near Crofton as an alternative to a HomeBuyer Report?

Frequently still referred to as a Full Structural Survey by some, it is no longer available as it has been given a new moniker by RICS and the correct name is actually now the Building Survey. This is the correct selection of survey when buying an altered home, for example a tatty house in Crofton. It will outline comprehensive and often critical advice on the buildings construction along with any important technical details, following a thorough visual inspection of the accessible areas of the house.

Roof defects identified during a survey

Damp in the attic brings up bad memories for us, and we expect to budget something for roof maintenance. Will access to the roof of the house be difficult to arrange?

Questions like this are often asked of house surveyors by Crofton home buyers who are aware that property can still be subject to damage to the roof, including. All aspects of the roof should be reviewed, from the slates to the tie beams, and where the matter is serious, it should be rectified promptly.

The expense of replacing rotten rafters or soffits, or other major roof work, means that some owners put it off for as long as possible. This is a false economy, as such issues can lead to more severe general structural problems. A quote (or several) for any necessary work should be acquired as soon as possible.
