Do you need a Home Buyers Survey? Which survey is the right choice?

  • House suitable for a HomeBuyer Report

    Homebuyer Report in New Inn

    The RICS Homebuyer Report is the right choice if you are buying a home built from conventional materials i.e. tile & brick, in reasonable order and not over 100 years in age.

  • Property suitable for a Building Survey

    Building Survey in New Inn

    A Building Survey (previously called a Full Structural Survey in New Inn) will also be conducted by a RICS surveyor and is more detailed. Choose this when buying a non standard e.g. granite wall or older properties.

  • Surveyor carrying out a Property Valuation

    Property Valuation Report in New Inn

    This is an impartial valuation of the property. It is often chosen by mortgage free buyers or anyone needing a formal valuation e.g. for probate.

HomeBuyer Report

Should we book a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a property in New Inn and which one would be cheaper?

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

If the New Inn property is a flat, or is an older property, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any major works on the property, it would be better that you book a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap however it will provide you with a thorough analysis of the New Inn property's state of repair as well as information on defects and maintenance options .

Asbestos roof tiles

I am worried that there may be asbestos pipe lagging affecting the flat. What is asbestos, are there any risks and does the building survey look at this?

Asbestos is a dangerous material. Some types were commonly found in the building materials for example duct connectors.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has good heat resistance qualities and it may be found in pipe lagging insulation. Technically all forms are ultimately dangerous and might lead to lung cancer or pleural disease following prolonged exposure. Should you find asbestos, you should be careful on no account to displace asbestos. Professional advice should be sought without delay.

Surveyors do not verify the presence of asbestos during a New Inn building survey. However, surveyors will mention possible asbestos and should inform you of the options.

Damage resulting from flooding

Is there a risk of flooding in New Inn, and can a New Inn HomeBuyer Report investigate any flooding, or if neighbour's houses have been affected?

Recent conflict between insurers has the government has caused a great deal of uncertainty, and it is not clear that reasonably-priced flooding insurance will be available in years to come.

As with many aspects of home ownership, flood prevention is better (and cheaper) than a cure.

Flood water can enter a residence through several routes, including loose patio doors. The house survey will also include details of any evidence of historical flooding, and may comment generally about the area's propensity to flood, the data used to compile third-party flood assessments also takes into account flood defences and historic claims.

No recent New Inn flood alerts have been announced (source: Environment Agency).

Stone block wall damage

We are buying a home with Darley Dale stone walls. Are there specific potential issues to consider? Does the surveyor give advice on this?

Britain's geology has encouraged the use of many varieties of stone, from Hall Dale Sandstone to Stoke Hall Sandstone. Defects affecting stone-built buildings can vary, penetrating damp being relatively common. Regular stone describes cut stone, generally forming brick-like courses. These may require less maintenance than more irregularly built walls, but this is heavily dependent on the type of stone used. Both regular or irregular stone can be mortared with lime-based mortar. This may also require careful attention. Stone walls require regular maintenance, such as repointing mortar with a suitable material.

The sheer breadth of varying stone materials can make it difficult for purchasers to correctly identify the particular stone used in the building of a home. Quarries in New Inn should be able to supply local stone.
