Home Buyers Survey in Market Weighton

HomeBuyer Report

Should I choose a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a property in Market Weighton and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey but is effectively the same level of survey.

If the Market Weighton property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out any alterations, you should you select a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap however it will give a more detailed analysis of the Market Weighton property's state of repair in addition to advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

Damage caused by high rainfall

Is heavy rainfall an issue in Market Weighton? Will the chartered surveyor report on this? Also, if there are problems, will they be disruptive to fix?

As a frequent surveyor of local property, I find it strange that this issue is rarely paid due attention by house purchasers. One indication that drainage are blocked is streaks of dirt down the outside of guttering. Poor drainage can lead to rising damp.

The good news is that this is generally easy to remedy, if not neglected, unless they are poorly maintained. The damage will steadily get harder to remedy, so do not be tempted to ignore the signs.

Traditionally built property

We are purchasing an older converted barn in Market Weighton. What impact will the construction have on maintenance?

Many buyers in Market Weighton have considered buying a home with character, such as a period conversion. Older construction methods and materials, however, can often be problematic. Homes built with traditional or "vernacular" techniques can be costly to upkeep. You should be aware that specialist knowledge may be needed. Traditional materials may also need to be sourced, particularly in the case of listed property. This may mean expensive ongoing repairs. Built between 1719 and 1720, All Saints' Church, bellframe and belfry floor is an example of a traditional church in Sancton.

Building Surveys on houses

What are the benefits to commission a full structural survey as opposed to a HomeBuyer Report?

Full Structural Surveys no longer exist now as the Building Survey is the new more technical home survey. If you are buying an altered Market Weighton home, for example a tatty house, this is the most appropriate home survey. The report (set out in the surveyor's individual format) outlines comprehensive and salient professional advice concerning the homes standard of construction and repair along with any technical details, shortly after a thorough visual inspection of the accessible parts of the house.

. Certain external buildings will, in addition, be reported on during the survey.

Shocking Electrics

When we went to see the home we are meaning to buy we saw that there might be an overload of the fuses/fusebox; does Market Weighton survey advise the wiring and electrical system?

When preparing a Market Weighton Home Buyers Survey the home surveyor will usually report on the condition of the electrics if it is clear that the electrics are in a less than satisfactory state of repair. A Chartered surveyor will also things like confirming the condition of fitted appliances such as water heaters or where to find the fuse board . A check for the documents from a test on the condition of the electrical wiring carried out by an electrician should usually form part of the survey.
