Home Buyers Survey in Breaston

HomeBuyer Report

Should I select a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a house in Breaston and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey and is basically the same the same comprehensive survey.

If the Breaston property is a flat, or is an older property, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any substantial modifications, RICS recommend you go for a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap but it will give you exhaustive analysis of the Breaston property's condition and it includes advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

Timber damage by insect larvae

I am worried about pests in the building we plan to buy - Will the Building Survey investigate this?

Houses will often be free of major pests. However, if you do have specific concerns, you should seek advice. This concern should be taken seriously. An affected property may not always be easy to identify, for example, cockroaches are nocturnal, and challenging to eradicate. Species common to the UK, such as the German Cockroach, are small, and breed rapidly in moist conditions. This makes them both hard to spot, and to treat successfully. Remedies to pests can include traps.RICS guidelines on the issue of pests are something of a 'grey-area', so specific fears should be mentioned to your surveyor.

Traditionally built property

My partner and I are purchasing a 18th Century coast house. What consequences will the structure have on regular maintenance?

Vernacular architecture can be problematic. Buildings employing traditional or "vernacular" techniques can be surprisingly expensive to repair. It is often the case that expert knowledge is necessary. Traditional building materials may also need to be sourced. This can result in longer-term maintenance obligations. If you plan to make alterations to a period property, discuss options with your RICS surveyor for further advice.

Stone block wall damage

Do stone-walled property generate high upkeep costs for the buyer? Are there specific defects to bear in mind?

From Hopton Wood Limestone to Lees Endcliffe Sandstone, there are many types of stone used in the construction of homes in this country. Issues including erosion affect many stone-walled homes in Breaston. Irregular stone often has a more rustic appearance, but the mortar used may be susceptible to a higher rate of decay. You can request advice on the specific steps to be taken when a problem is identified.

Common guidance may include using traditional techniques when making repairs to the fabric of older buildings.

Ask your surveyor for clarification if you are in doubt as to likely maintenance, particularly if the house in question is listed or located in a conservation area.
