HomeBuyer Report

Should I go for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a property in Turvey and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same.

If the Turvey property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials, then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any major works, you should you book a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap, but it does give you an in-depth analysis of the Turvey property's state of repair as well as including advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

Roof defects identified during a survey

Damp in the attic brings up bad memories for us. Which issues relating to the roofing will be reported on when the survey is performed?

This often causes anxiety for Turvey buyers. Houses across Turvey can often hide difficulties with the roof. From roof battens to fascias, many parts of the roof and loft must be reviewed, and where the matter is serious, it should be rectified promptly.

Upkeep can be the cause of serious accidents, which is why modern contractors refuse to work without scaffolding. It may be advisable to source an estimate for any work prior to exchange. However, buyers should endeavour to compare a number of quotes to find the best deal. Speak to Scutchings A J & Son of 48 Green End Rd, Kempston, Bedford, MK43 8RJ on 01234 856922 for details.

Damage resulting from flooding

When purchasing in Turvey, should we be worried about a flood risk, and will the Turvey surveyor check signs of water damage?

The impact of flooding, both in the region of Turvey and nationwide, is a serious concern for owners. If you are planning to buy in a flood-affected area, a home survey will inform your decision. A flood risk alert service, with regular updates, is operated by the Environment Agency.

Flooding can increase the likelihood of water entering a Turvey home, such as via window frames. Section J of the survey report contains details, where applicable, of flooding risks found within the boundaries of the Turvey home or on adjacent sites. The residential surveyor may ask the estate agent about historical floods, although the result of these enquires should be treated as a guide only.

Building Surveys on houses

Are there any reasons for choosing the full structural survey instead of a HomeBuyer Report if purchasing a doer-upper property?

Full Structural Surveys are no longer offered as a new called a Building Survey, is now available. A HomeBuyer Report is appropriate for a mid 20th century of later Turvey property of conventional construction materials and methods. When buying an unconventional property such as a period house in Turvey, it is now the most appropriate home survey to go for. Once a thorough survey of all accessible areas, a written report is emailed and posted to you detailing any critical information in relation to the construction materials used on the house.

There are certain restrictions with any residential survey to be aware of as a qualified RICS surveyor will not be able to (unless safe to do so) force or open up the fabric of the Turvey house e.g. lifting up fitted carpets.
