HomeBuyer Report

Should we book a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a house in Ripon and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey, although it is effectively the same comprehensive survey.

If the Ripon property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any major works on the Ripon property, RICS advise you book a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it will give an in-depth analysis of the Ripon property's condition and it includes an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

Roof defects identified during a survey

We're purchasing a building in Ripon , and we are sensitive to the cost of roof repairs. What does the Ripon surveyor keep an eye out for during the investigation?

This is often asked by home buyers who know that homes could feature issues with the roof. Every element should be checked, e.g. purlins, and any defects addressed as soon as possible.

An expensive quote for roofing jobs (such as asbestos cement removal) may have scared off some homeowners from carrying out necessary work. In extreme cases, this may be the reason for the sale, so buyers must be vigilant and employ the services of a qualified surveyor before the exchange of contracts. A roofing contractor in the local area with professional accreditation should be able to assist with a quote.
