Which Home Buyers Survey is the right choice?

  • House suitable for a HomeBuyer Report

    Homebuyer Report in Northampton

    The RICS Homebuyer Report is the right choice when planning to buy a home built from conventional materials i.e. tile and brick, in reasonable repair and less than 100 years old.

  • Property suitable for a Building Survey

    Building Survey in Northampton

    A RICS Building Survey (often referred to as a Full Structural Survey in Northampton) will also be conducted by a MRICS/FRICS chartered surveyor but is more comprehensive. Opt for this for unconventional e.g. wychert homes.

  • Surveyor carrying out a Property Valuation

    Property Valuation Report in Northampton

    This is a professional surveyor valuation . This report is typically chosen by cash purchasers or someone needing a formal valuation e.g. for probate.

HomeBuyer Report

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

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey but is effectively the same survey.

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

If you are thinking about whether to make major works, it would be better that you carry out a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it does provide you with an in-depth analysis of the Northampton property's state of repair as well as more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

I am looking for Scottish bond maintenance tips - can a Northampton property surveyor assist? Is age a factor?

Northampton brick-walled buildings can experience considerable issues, including frost damaged pointing and horizontal cracking. An especially severe issue is thermal movement, caused by more extreme temperature variation, and resulting in vertical cracks. Stuart Adam may be able to give a quote for any maintenance work. Contact them at 07836 771640 or 19 Webb La, Birmingham, B28 0EB.

For home purchasers in Northampton seeking a rare example of brick architecture, look for unusual course styles like shiner bond describes bricks are laid horizontally as with more common bonds, but the with the wider face parallel to the wall.

Timber damage by insect larvae

We are buying a property but are worried about pests. Will the Full Structural Survey investigate this?

Infestations can range from the mild and harmless, to the seriously harmful. Unfortunately, the impact to a house and its inhabitants can carry serious health risks and affect its value. It is vital that buyers consider this oft-overlooked aspect when making an offer.

Signs may not be evident for weeks or months, mice are able to squeeze through even small gaps and holes, and quickly spread disease through their droppings. Treatment for bug or other pest issues may include destruction of tainted materials. Rather than pulling out, it may be possible to agree a reduction in the purchase price to cover the cost of remedy.

Roof defects identified during a survey

I am going to put in an offer in on a structure in Northampton. What does a surveyor investigate during the survey?

This is frequently addressed by chartered surveyors. Houses across Northampton could feature problems like ponding. From the rafters to the collar beams, the status of the whole roof should be reviewed. Difficulties can often arise in the case of flat roofs, caused by a poor asphalt covering.

It may be inconvenient to employ scaffolding to perform repairs, especially in the busy parts of Northampton, but it is a health and safety necessity. A roofing contractor with a good reference should be able to assist with a quote. Call Bridgewater Roofing of 2 Draycott Cl, Northampton, NN3 3BD on 01604 451311 to request a quote.
