HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to go for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a property in Milton and which is cheaper?

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

If the Milton property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials, you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make alterations, it would be better that you book a Building Survey instead. This option is not as cheap, however it will give you an in-depth analysis of the Milton property's general condition in addition to advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

If in doubt why not get a Milton House Survey Quote or call us 0800 038 6667 to speak to one of our advisers.

Roof defects identified during a survey

I am going to put in an offer in on a building in Milton - Which issues relating to the building's roof will be checked during the survey?

Residential property in Milton with no other major issues may be exposed to cracked and loose slates or tiles, among a range of other roofing issues. Every element should be checked, e.g. trusses. Problems can often arise in the case of flat roofs, caused by being literally flat, as opposed to on a small incline so that water can drain correctly.

Given the high cost of major roof repairs like replacement of a failed dormer, some homeowners may defer maintenance indefinitely. This makes both the cause and the consequences harder and even more expensive to treat when repairs do take place.

Prior to exchange, it may be worth sourcing from a local roofing specialist a quote for any suggested work.

Damage resulting from flooding

Would our Milton surveyor check signs of flooding?

Flooding has blighted the lives of thousands of residents in Milton and across the country, and the value of a Milton property in an at-risk area may be impacted.

As with many aspects of home ownership, flood prevention is better (and cheaper) than a cure, and a property surveyor will advise on repairs or preventative measures. The GroundSure Flood Report is one of several risk screening reports designed to provide an overview of whether a property lies within an area of potential or previous flood risk. The Environment Agency also publish details of previous flood warnings.

Conservatory

On a HomeBuyer Report carried out in Milton, what might 'E7 - Conservatory and porches' refer to?

The home buyer report is intended to be easy to read and understand. As buyers in Milton are unlikely to be experts in local building techniques and materials themselves, the report is written with as little jargon as possible. A 'traffic light' system of colour coding is used to confirm to what extent each defect requires attention. Parts of the report which do not apply to the specific house or flat being surveyed will be indicated with a 'NI', or 'not inspected'. The HomeBuyer Report has a standard format, which the surveyor will complete according to the nuances of the particular house or flat, omitting sections as necessary. Section E7 defects include those affect any porch or conservatory attached to the home. The type and condition of these parts should also be reported on. Steps that spring or sag when used is one example.
