HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to get a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a house in Peterborough and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey but is basically the same the same survey.

If the Peterborough property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make significant alterations, RICS recommend you carry out a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap, but it will provide you with comprehensive details of the Peterborough property's general condition along with an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

Building Surveys on houses

We are investing in a defective regency cottage home - is it best to go for a full structural survey?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed as the Building Survey. You would be best advised to select the Building Survey for the house referred to. A HomeBuyer Report is sufficient if investigating a post 1950s Peterborough property made out of conventional construction materials and methods i.e. brick/tile. Bear in mind that several limitations exist with a property survey as a qualified RICS surveyor wont be able to (unless owners consent provided) force or open up the structure of the property of comment on non-permanent out buildings.

Roof defects identified during a survey

We're purchasing a home in Peterborough - What should we do about roof repairs?

This is frequently addressed by property surveyors. Many properties can, to the disappointment of their would-be owners, still suffer damage to the roof. All aspects of the roof should be reviewed, from the concrete tiles to the parapet walls. Factors like holes or cracks in the waterproof layer are particularly troublesome for flat roofed property.

Given the high cost of major roof repairs like insulating the attic, some homeowners may defer maintenance indefinitely. This makes both the cause and the consequences harder and even more expensive to treat when repairs do take place. A Peterborough roofing specialist with solid references can provide a quote.
