HomeBuyer Report

Should I book a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a property in Kingsthorpe and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey but is effectively the same comprehensive survey.

If the Kingsthorpe property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials, you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out alterations, it would be better that you select a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap, but it will provide you with a more detailed analysis of the Kingsthorpe property's condition and it includes advice on defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

For more details you can get an instant Kingsthorpe Home Survey Quote on our website or call us 0800 038 6667 to speak to a member of our team.

Roof defects identified during a survey

Poor roof maintenance has created issues for us in the past. What should we pay attention to during the survey?

Property in and around Kingsthorpe with no other major issues can often hide roofing woes, like wet rot. From trusses to ridge flashing, the roof structure as a whole should be reported on. Flat roofs can also be a nuisance, caused by factors like being literally flat, as opposed to on a small incline so that water can drain correctly.

Given the high cost of major roof repairs like loft insulation, 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. It may be advisable to source an estimate for any work prior to exchange.

However, buyers should endeavour to compare a number of quotes to find the best deal. Contact Northampton Roofing Solutions of 1 Bushland Rd, Northampton, NN3 2NS on 01604 402107 to request a quote.

Shocking Electrics

When I saw the building I am planning to buy I think we saw that there was no RCD on the fuse board - does a Kingsthorpe Homebuyer Report give details on on the wiring and fusebox?

When carrying out a Kingsthorpe Home Survey a qualified surveyor will typically add detail on the condition of the electrics if it is apparent that they are in a dangerous condition. This will include a visual check (i.e. no removal of fittings) of the open sections of the wiring, fusebox etc. as well as issues like the electricity mains supply. Looking at any evidence of any recent PIR handled by a suitably qualified electrician on the building will usually form part of the survey in Kingsthorpe. Reporting on any documentation from a test on the condition of the electrical connections handled by an electrician will usually be part of the Homebuyer report in Kingsthorpe .

Conservation area

Will there be any factors we would need to look out for if planning to buy a house in Kingsthorpe near a conservation area, particularly in respect of to house prices?

There are many thousands of conservation areas in the UK that are designated and monitored by the local council. Your surveyor must have sufficient knowledge of relevant local area factors and the connection they have on the home and its value. The value of homes is usually significantly higher owing to them being unspoilt.

Surveyors are expected report whether the property looks like it may be is designated and Section I of a Homebuyer Report will advise additional due diligence and enquiries are raised during the legal process. Out of keeping adjustments to the property should be noted in the survey but these are really more a concern for your lawyer. Andrew Sutton Law are a local firm situated at The Spinney, Northampton, Northamptonshire, NN3 7TL should be able to advise further. Tel: 07816 308265
