HomeBuyer Report

Should we have a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a home in Northleach and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey but is effectively the same level of survey.

If the Northleach property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out alterations, you should you commission a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap, but it does give you an in-depth analysis of the Northleach property's condition as well as advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Damage resulting from flooding

We think this house is located in a low lying area. Is there a major flood risk? Would our surveyor search for flood damage?

Flooding has become a serious concern, more so after it was reported that last year was the second wettest on record (source: ITN), and home buyers cannot know that insurance against flooding will continue to be available. A surveyor has a number of options to assess whether a property is vulnerable.

Flooding can increase the likelihood of water entering a house, such as via window frames. The GroundSure Flood Report is one of several risk screening reports designed to provide an overview of whether a house lies within an area of potential or previous

flood risk, the data used to compile third-party flood assessments also takes into account flood defences and historic claims.

Timber damage by insect larvae

Will vermin affect the purchase price of a property in Northleach. What advice should we get?

Houses are generally free of vermin, but it is inadvisable to risk buying without more information if you have suspicions. Unfortunately, the impact to a house and its inhabitants can carry serious health risks and affect its value. An affected building may not always be easy to identify.

For example, irritating cluster flies will hibernate in Autumn, but will return every year without treatment. Remedies can be disruptive to residents, and may require you to move out during the work in extreme cases. Rather than pulling out, it may be possible to agree a reduction in the purchase price to cover the cost of remedy.

Damage caused by high rainfall

How will we know what impact can high levels of rainfall have on our new house in Northleach? Will the house surveyor report on this? Can damaged downspouts decrease our property's value?

I find it odd that wet conditions and the effect it can have on property in Northleach are not given enough thought. For instance, rusted iron elements may indicate that the downspouts are blocked, but you may wish to ask your surveyor for more detail. The good news is that problems with drains are usually easy to fix, and is also relatively inexpensive, unless they are not cared for. The damage will steadily get harder to remedy, so do not be tempted to ignore the signs.
