Which Property Survey is the right choice?

  • House suitable for a HomeBuyer Report

    Homebuyer Report in Long Eaton

    The RICS Homebuyer Report should be selected when planning to buy a property constructed from conventional materials such as brick and tile, in reasonable order and less than 100 years old.

  • Property suitable for a Building Survey

    Building Survey in Long Eaton

    A Building Survey (previously called a Full Structural Survey in Long Eaton) is also carried out by a MRICS or FRICS chartered surveyor but is more exhaustive. Choose this when buying a non standard e.g. stone homes.

  • Surveyor carrying out a Property Valuation

    Property Valuation Report in Long Eaton

    This is an impartial valuation . This is usually chosen by cash buyers or someone requiring a formal valuation e.g. matrimonial dispute.

HomeBuyer Report

Should I choose a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a house in Long Eaton and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same survey.

If the Long Eaton property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out alterations, it would be better that you choose a Building Survey instead. The Building Survey is less cheap but it does give you a thorough analysis of the Long Eaton property's condition and it includes more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Damage caused by high rainfall

What effect will rainfall have on a Long Eaton home, and does our building survey mention it? Could it affect the property value?

The impact of climate change is widely reported, yet the effect which heavy rainfall has on a residence is not given enough thought. If you have only been to the home in dry conditions, problems are unlikely to be visible. This could then result in cracked foundations and subsidence.

That is not to say that drainage problems should cause you to reconsider a purchase. They are usually a simple matter to remedy.

Landfill site near home

What should we be worried about when buying a building next to a rubbish landfill

Landfill Sites are used for a variety of waste e.g. inert waste. Understandably, no one ideally wants to live near one (4/5 people live within 1.5m of one!). Concerns might include complex organic chemicals. Potential health problems for example gut problems have been associated with landfill sites .

Long Eaton RICS surveyors will find structural issues linked to the site. Your legal representative will carry out environmental searches of the Landmark databases in addition to Erewash Local Authority and give you the results of the search .

Traditionally built property

I am purchasing a 18th Century renovated farmhouse. What should be budgeted for maintenance?

For houses in Long Eaton built before the 20th Century, age can be a cause of concern for would-be buyers. Long Eaton houses featuring traditional or "vernacular" techniques can be expensive to upkeep. You should consider that expert knowledge may be needed. Traditional materials may also need to be sourced. This can result in higher ongoing expenses. If you are uncertain, speak to your building surveyor for more information.
