HomeBuyer Report

Should I select a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a house in Holbeach and which is the cheapest?

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

If the Holbeach property is a flat, or is an older property, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make any alterations on the property, you should you select a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap however it does offer a thorough analysis of the Holbeach property's condition along with advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Damage resulting from flooding

Would our surveyor search 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: Evening Standard); sensible owners and purchasers in Holbeach are right to consider precautions. It is strongly recommended that proper precautions are taken, before flood damage occurs.

Flood water can enter a house in Holbeach through several routes, including loose patio doors.

Familiarity with characteristics of the local area likely to affect house in Holbeach enables the residential 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 Building Survey if the residential surveyor observes or has reason to suspect that the house in Holbeach is at risk.

Chimney stacks

On a HomeBuyer Report carried out in Holbeach what could a Condition rating 3 mean for 'E1 - Chimney stacks' ?

Possible defects are visually reviewed using binoculars as necessary. A report on a lower ground flat, for instance, may not require this. A missing or cracked chimney cap is an example of this.

Serious concerns are marked as condition rating 3. 'Red' defects may also need further investigation by a qualified specialist before a full assessment can be made. The format of the RICS HomeBuyer Report is clear and easy to read, and avoid potentially unfamiliar technical language. Your property surveyor will mark each aspect of the property included in Section E with either a green, orange or red rating, to indicate how concerning each aspect of the report is.

Roof defects identified during a survey

We have made an offer for a home with a converted attic in Holbeach - What aspects of the roofing will be reported on?

This is a common concern for buyers in Holbeach. Homes throughout Holbeach can still be subject to roofing woes, like incorrectly applied waterproofing. From the fascias to the collar beams, the status of the whole roof should be reviewed, and any defects addressed as soon as possible.

Given the high cost of major roof repairs like felting a flat roof, some homeowners may defer maintenance indefinitely. This makes both the cause and the consequences harder and even more expensive to treat when repairs do take place. A roofing contractor with good feedback should be able to assist with a quote.
