HomeBuyer Report

Should I choose a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a home in Leigh and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey, however it is basically the same the same comprehensive survey.

If the Leigh property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any major works, you should you go for a Building Survey instead. The Building Survey is not as cheap however it does offer a thorough analysis of the Leigh property's general condition as well as including advice on defects , repairs and maintenance options .

Damage resulting from flooding

What's the danger of flooding in Leigh. Can a surveyor check for water damage, or whether flooding has affected the garden?

Flooding has become a serious concern, more so after it was reported that last year was the second wettest on record (source: The Guardian), and home buyers and owners are understandably concerned. It is strongly recommended that precautions are taken, before flooding occurs, and a property surveyor will advise on repairs or preventative measures. Section J of the survey report contains details, where applicable, of flooding risks found within the boundaries of the house in Leigh or on adjacent sites. The RICS surveyor may ask the vendor if the house in Leigh has previously flooded. Note that the response to such enquires should not be exclusively relied upon.
