HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to have a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a property in Keelby and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey and is effectively the same level of survey.

If the Keelby property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any alterations, RICS advise you choose a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap, however it does give you an in-depth analysis of the Keelby property's general condition as well as advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Roof defects identified during a survey

Poor roof maintenance brings up bad memories for us. What should we keep an eye out for during the investigation?

Questions like this are often asked of property surveyors by Keelby home buyers who are aware that property may be exposed to damage to the roof. Every element should be checked, e.g. sheeting, and where the matter is serious, it should be rectified promptly.

It may be inconvenient to employ scaffolding to perform repairs, especially in the busy parts of Keelby, but it is a health and safety necessity. A quote for the work could be sought from a reliable builder from the area.

Substandard guttering

For the Keelby HomeBuyer Report, what effect will a green light rating have on rainwater pipes and gutters?

A condition rating of 1 states that no repair work is needed, but maintenance may still be necessary. Parts of the report which do not apply to the specific Keelby home being surveyed will be indicated with a 'NI', or 'not inspected'. Where the surveyor is unable to gain access to some areas, e.g. the roof of a block of flats, these aspects of the report will not be completed. An example defect for this is low-sloping downspouts. The drainage system is inspected visually. Buyers should be aware that although drainage is reported on in this section, other aspects of the water system are referred to elsewhere defects in the sewer system.

Conservation area

Are there any issues we would need to be wary of when buying a flat in Keelby in the vicinity of conservation area ?

There are over 9, 000 official conservation areas throughout the country which are designated by the local council.

Home Buyers Surveys in Keelby must possess relevant knowledge of local issues and any bearing may have on the building and its value. Prices will be higher than non conservation area equivalents owing to them being largely unspoilt

Surveyors can be expected to report if the home is/might be within a conservation area and Section I of your Keelby Homebuyer Report will suggest suitable questions are raised by your solicitor. Unconsented developments to the property should be noted in the survey, however these should be concern for the solicitor.
