HomeBuyer Report

Should I opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a house in Mudeford and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey but is basically the same the same survey.

If the Mudeford property is a flat or maisonette, or is a period property, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out significant alterations on the Mudeford property, RICS recommend you carry out a Building Survey instead. This more detailed survey is not as cheap, but it does offer comprehensive details of the Mudeford property's general condition as well as 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 Mudeford , and we are sensitive to the cost of roof repairs. What does the surveyor in Mudeford look into during the survey?

Questions like this are often asked of Mudeford surveyors by house purchasers who are aware that property will suffer damage to the roof. All parts of the roof must be considered during the survey. This can include anything from wind braces to sheathing. Flat roofs can also be a nuisance, caused by factors like literally being flat. An incline of at least '1 to 80' is recommended.

Replacement of tiles and other roof repairs can be the cause of serious accidents, which is why modern contractors refuse to work without scaffolding. A local contractor with professional accreditation should be able to assist with a quote.

Chimney stacks

On the HomeBuyer Report what impact can a Condition Rating 1 have on 'E1 - Chimney stacks' ?

One example would be no drip edge on the chimney cap. Possible defects should be examined with binoculars as necessary. A report on a lower ground flat, for instance, may not require this. The format of the RICS HomeBuyer Report is clear and easy to read. As buyers in Mudeford are unlikely to be experts in local building techniques and materials themselves, the report is written with as little jargon as possible. The report uses colour coded condition ratings to give buyers a clear understanding of the seriousness of any issues included in the survey. A condition rating of 1 states that no repair work is needed, but this does not mean that no future work is required. Seasonal checks may still be appropriate to prevent deterioration.

Damage resulting from flooding

Will our Mudeford home buyers survey investigate any flooding damage?

Overflowing rivers, rain and tides can cause water damage caused by flooding, and it is not clear that reasonably-priced flooding insurance will be available in years to come. Your RICS surveyor may use several methods to determine if the house in Mudeford in question is in danger.

Flood water can enter a house in Mudeford through a number of routes, including air bricks, poorly fitted doors and windows, and seepage through external walls. The Home Buyers Survey will also include details of any evidence of historical flooding, and may comment generally about the area's propensity to flood. Oral enquiries can sometimes be made of the agent, but this information may not be accurate.
