Home Buyers Survey in Seaburn

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to get a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a house in Seaburn and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same survey.

If the Seaburn property is a flat, or is an older property, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make any alterations, RICS advise you select a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it does offer a thorough analysis of the Seaburn property's state of repair as well as including more detailed advice on defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

Roof defects identified during a survey

Our seller said that the had been a problem with loose tiles. I am particularly concerned about the state of the roof. What does the property surveyor check when the property is surveyed?

This is a common concern for purchasers who have had to put up with weeks of scaffolding around their home while work is underway. Many properties can be hiding serious difficulties with the roof. All aspects of the roof should be reviewed, from the dormer windows to the collar beams. Your house surveyors may then recommend that some faults need urgent attention.

Given the high cost of major roof repairs like replacement of a failed dormer, some homeowners may defer maintenance indefinitely. This makes both the cause and the consequences harder and even more expensive to treat when repairs do take place. A Seaburn roofing specialist with accreditation can provide a quote.

Shocking Electrics

When I viewed the unmodernised property I intend to buy, the agent said that there is deterioration in the wiring and RCD unit - does a Seaburn Homebuyer Report give details on on the general state of the electrical system?

When performing a Home Survey in Seaburn a qualified surveyor will mention the electrics if it appears that they are in an unsatisfactory state.

This will include a non invasive examination of the accessible areas of the wiring and other areas like examining the condition of fitted electrical appliances such as storage radiators or if there are residual circuit breakers (RCD). A check for the evidence of a test on the condition of the electrical connections conducted by an electrician will form part of the survey.

Traditionally built property

I am purchasing a 16th Century farmstead. Will the age of the residence be a concern?

Vernacular, or traditional, architecture can worry purchasers, and Seaburn property built using traditional methods can be costly to maintain. It is often the case that expert knowledge is necessary, and it could also be necessary to find Traditional building materials, which could result in higher ongoing expenses.Discuss this with your building surveyor for more information.

Building Surveys on houses

Can you please explain the justification in upgrading to a full structural survey when investing in a dilapidated mid terrace house in Seaburn instead of a HomeBuyer Report?

Sometimes referred to as the Structural Survey, it is no longer available and has been re-titled by RICS and the right name is actually now the RICS Building Survey. This is now the right RICS survey if buying an unconventional house e.g. a period house. It will give comprehensive and significant insight in relation to the houses construction materials along with any defects a thorough visual inspection of the inside and outside of the main building and permanent outbuildings. .
