HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to go for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a home in East Preston and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey, although it is basically the same the same.

If the East Preston property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any major works, it would be better that you go for a Building Survey. This option is less cheap however it does give you a more detailed analysis of the East Preston property's condition in addition to advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Building Surveys on houses

I don't understand the argument to upgrade to the full structural survey when considering a un-loved end of terrace property in East Preston as an alternative to a HomeBuyer Report?

Very Often referred to as a Full Structural Survey by some, this survey is now defunct and as it has been given a new title by RICS(Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors) and the right term is now the RICS Building Survey.

The HomeBuyer Report is enough for a 60 year old or less unmodified East Preston house built out of typical building materials. The Building Survey is definitely the most advisable survey to opt for the house described. Two to three days after the surveyor

has carried out a thorough survey of the inside and outside of the main building, a formal report will be sent to the prospective buyer giving any notable information about the condition of the house.

There are certain no go areas with a Building Survey insofar as RICS chartered surveyor will not be able to open up the fabric of the of the East Preston house - such as lifting up floor coverings. This page for more info what is and is not included.

Traditionally built property

My partner and I are buying an older renovated farmhouse in East Preston. Will the age of the property be a problem?

Older construction methods and materials can be a cause of concern for would-be buyers. Property employing traditional methods can be a chore to upkeep. You should bear in mind that specialist knowledge may be needed. Materials suitable for the work may also need to be sourced. This can result in longer-term maintenance obligations. If you have doubts, speak to your building surveyor for more information.

Timber damage by insect larvae

A local warned us about insects on the road - What advice should we get?

Scare stories about property vermin are plentiful, it is tempting to treat signs of pests such as moths as minor annoyances. Regrettably, vermin can seriously reduce the value of a property and put your health in danger. Signs may not be obvious. As an example, sliverfish (lepisma saccharina), are rarely visible during the day. They will digest paper and wallpaper paste, but are more a symptom of damp than a serious problem themselves. Treatment for vermin may include traps. Rather than pulling out, it may be possible to agree a reduction in the purchase price to cover the cost of remedy.
