HomeBuyer Report

Should I get a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a property in Normanton and which is the cheapest?

If the Normanton property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out substantial modifications, RICS advise you commission a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap but it will provide you with a thorough analysis of the Normanton property's general condition as well as advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

Damage caused by high rainfall

Is high levels of rainfall an issue in Normanton? Could it affect the property value?

The impact of climate change is widely reported, yet the impact rain can have on your property is usually overlooked by buyers. If you have only seen the new home on a clear day, obvious defects may be harder to find. Signs that rainwater goods are a cause for concern include rotten wooden gutters. This can lead to warped floorboards or beams.

That is not to say that drainage problems should cause you to reconsider a purchase. They are usually a simple matter to remedy, if not neglected. Where this is not cleared out regularly, the damage becomes increasing costly to remedy.
