HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to choose a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a house in Ham and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey and is essentially the same level of survey.

If the Ham property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make an extension, you should you opt for a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap, however it does provide you with a more detailed analysis of the Ham property's general condition and it includes more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

Damage caused by high rainfall

How will we know what impact will rain have on our new property?

As a frequent surveyor of property in the area, I find it strange that the effect which high levels of rainfall has on property in Ham is not given the attention it deserves by purchasers.

Signs that drainage systems are damaged include "gushing" gutters. This can lead to staining of wallpaper and damp.

That is not to say that drainage problems should cause you to reconsider a purchase. They are usually a simple matter to remedy, unless they are poorly

maintained. The damage will steadily get harder to remedy, so do not be tempted to ignore the signs.

Damage resulting from flooding

We believe this house is located in a low lying area. Is there a major flood risk? Would our house surveyor investigate flooding?

It is estimated that over two million houses are in danger of floods, and insurance premiums. can be significantly affected for houses in flood-risk areas. Your RICS surveyor may use several methods to determine if the home in question is in danger, and a property surveyor will advise on repairs or preventative measures.

Familiarity with characteristics of the local area likely to affect Ham house enables the RICS surveyor to surmise flooding may be a risk, even if the property has not itself flooded before. Flooding issues will only be raised in Section J of a survey report if the RICS surveyor observes or has reason to suspect that the Ham house is at risk.

Traditionally built property

I am purchasing a converted stable. Will the age of the house be a concern?

Many buyers have looked at purchasing a home with character. Vernacular architecture, however, can be a cause of concern for would-be buyers. Homes showcasing traditional methods can be expensive to maintain. It is often the case that expert knowledge is necessary. Traditional building materials may also need to be sourced. Speak to the building surveyor for more detail.
