HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to go for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a home in Lifton and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey, although it is basically the same the same.

If the Lifton property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make significant alterations, it would be better that you choose a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap but it will give comprehensive details of the Lifton property's condition as well as including an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

Roof defects identified during a survey

We have made an offer for a house with a converted attic in Lifton , and we are wary of potential roofing issues. What aspects of the attic will be looked into for the survey?

Questions like this are often asked of Lifton surveyors by purchasers who are aware that property could feature roofing problems. From the gables to the ceiling joists, the status of the whole roof should be reviewed. Flat roofs are also known for the trouble they can cause, often the result of being literally flat, as opposed to on a small incline so that water can drain correctly.

Roof maintenance need not always be costly, but they should be budgeted for carefully. A building survey prior to exchange is highly recommended, so that you fully understand what expenses you will be facing. A roofing contractor in the local area with good feedback can provide a quote.

Damage resulting from flooding

Does a Lifton home buyers survey consider flooding damage?

2012 was the 2nd wettest year on record, and owning a residence in or near a high-risk area can mean higher insurance premiums. It is strongly recommended that prevention methods are considered, before water damage ruins both the walls and floors, and contents. Flood water can enter a residence through a number of routes, including air bricks, poorly fitted doors and windows, and seepage through external walls. Less expensive preventative measures include door guards. Also included on Environment Agency's flood danger alert are details of local rivers and other bodies of water prone to flooding.

Conservation area

Will there be any problems we should look out for if buying a converted flat in Lifton in the vicinity of a conservation area, particularly in respect of to house prices?

There are around ten thousand of conservation areas throughout England and Wales, responsibility for which lies with the local council. Your surveyor are required by RICS to have knowledge of local area issues and the connection may have on the home. House prices will probably be higher due to them resisting change.

Surveyors can be expected to inform you if the house is possibly so designated and Section I of the Lifton Homebuyer Report will recommend the proper questions are conducted by your legal representation. Unapproved changes to the property may be reported in the Lifton survey, however these should be concern for your lawyer.
