HomeBuyer Report

Should I choose a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a property in Market Weighton and which one is cheaper?

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

If the Market Weighton property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out any alterations, you should you select a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap however it will give a more detailed analysis of the Market Weighton property's state of repair in addition to advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

Traditionally built property

We are purchasing an older converted barn in Market Weighton. What impact will the construction have on maintenance?

Many buyers in Market Weighton have considered buying a home with character, such as a period conversion. Older construction methods and materials, however, can often be problematic. Homes built with traditional or "vernacular" techniques can be costly to upkeep. You should be aware that specialist knowledge may be needed. Traditional materials may also need to be sourced, particularly in the case of listed property. This may mean expensive ongoing repairs. Built between 1719 and 1720, All Saints' Church, bellframe and belfry floor is an example of a traditional church in Sancton.

Conservation area

Will there be any factors we should be wary of when purchasing a building in Market Weighton near a conservation area?

There are many thousands of conservation areas in England and Wales that are designated and monitored by local councils. Your surveyor are required by RICS to have knowledge of relevant local factors and any bearing may have on the property and its value. The value of homes is, more often than not, significantly higher because of them being largely unspoilt However many areas are falling into disrepair for example - the unsightly effect of billboard advertising

Surveyors are expected advise whether the property might be classified as such and Section I of the Market Weighton Homebuyer Report will advise suitable questions are conducted by your legal adviser. Unauthorised extensions that do not have Local Authority approval will also be commented on but these are really more a concern for your conveyancer.

Damage resulting from flooding

We are intending to purchase a house in Market Weighton, does the building survey consider possible flood damage?

The Law Society estimate that 2.2m homes are at risk of flood damage; sensible owners and house purchasers in Market Weighton are right to consider precautions. Your RICS surveyor may use several methods to determine if the property in question is in danger.

Flooding can increase the likelihood of water entering a home, such as via seepage through external walls. An awareness of characteristics of the Market Weighton area likely to affect the home also enables the property surveyor to advise flooding may be a risk. The Environment Agency also publish details of previous flood warnings.
