What building survey should I select for my house purchase ?

  • House suitable for a HomeBuyer Report

HomeBuyer Report

Should I opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a property in Leek and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey and is essentially the same survey.

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

If you intend to do any alterations, RICS recommend you go for a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap, however it will give you a more detailed analysis of the Leek property's state of repair as well as including an opinion on defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

Damage caused by high rainfall

Is it advisable to check downspouts? Will the Leek property surveyor report on this? Are repairs going to be expensive?

Rainfall is a fact of life in the UK, however, high levels of rainfall and the effect it can have on buildings are rarely considered properly by purchasers. For example, rusted iron elements strongly suggest that the gutters are blocked. If you have doubts, consider asking the surveyor for more information.

In most cases, guttering issues are generally easy to repair, if identified early. However, if the drains are not cleared out regularly, the resulting damage can lower the value of the property and become increasing harder to repair.

English Heritage

I am planning to purchase a flat near Brindley'S Mill , will this affect the property's value?

Brindley'S Mill is a scheduled monument considered to be of national importance. Monuments of local importance can enhance the attractiveness of an area. Other nearby sites of interest are Elderbush Cave, Market Cross and Merryton Low Bowl Barrow.. Your RICS surveyor will include many local factors when conducting homebuyer report in Leek. See the English Heritage website for more details on Brindley'S Mill.

Stone block wall damage

I am buying a stone-walled home. Are there any major related issues that we should be aware of, and will the surveyor offer any advice?

Stone walls are often ignored by home buyers due to their apparent strength and solidity. The properties of a stone can affect wear as much as upkeep or construction. The two main forms of mortared stone wall construction found in Leek are regular and irregular.

Dry stone construction is used in garden walls and field boundaries, but is rarely employed for inhabited structures.

Home Buyers Surveys will usually offer guidance on these matters. An example would be resolution of underlying problems, like damp, before work on the wall starts. If you are planning to renovate, consider that the British Geological Survey's GeoReport includes a stone matching service. Locally mined or quarried stone may also be available.
