HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to go for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a property in Rye and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same.

If the Rye property is a flat or maisonette, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any alterations, it would be better that you commission a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap however it will give comprehensive details of the Rye property's condition as well as including an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

Damage resulting from flooding

Will our Rye building survey look for water damage?

Unfortunately, distance from water or height above sea level is no guarantee that a house will be secure against floods, and insurance premiums. can be significantly affected for residences in flood-risk areas.

As with many aspects of home ownership, flood prevention is better (and cheaper) than a cure. Flood water can enter a property in Rye through a number of routes, including air bricks, poorly fitted doors and windows, and seepage through external walls.

Preventative measures can include costly but effective solutions e.g. correctly installed window and door frames. Oral enquiries can sometimes be made of the current owner, but this information may not be accurate.

Roof defects identified during a survey

We are buying a loft-conversion in Rye. What advice would the home surveyor give in their report?

Rye residences in otherwise fine condition can still be subject to difficulties with the roof. Every element should be checked, e.g. dormers, and where the matter is serious, it should be rectified promptly.

Maintenance can be the cause of serious accidents, which is why modern contractors refuse to work without scaffolding. A local roofing specialist with a good reference should be able to assist with a quote. Speak to RPJ Leadwork & Roofing Ltd of 107 Military Rd, Rye, TN31 7NZ on 01797 226206 to request an estimate.
