About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Sedgefield

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a home in Sedgefield and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey, although it is basically the same the same.

If the Sedgefield property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make major works, it would be better that you commission a Building Survey instead. This survey is less cheap but it will offer comprehensive details of the Sedgefield property's state of repair in addition to advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

Roof defects identified during a survey

A leaky roof brings up bad memories for us - What advice would the property surveyor in Sedgefield give in their report?

This is a common concern for house purchasers who have had to shell out for major repairs in the past. Homes throughout Sedgefield will suffer roofing woes. All aspects of the roof should be reviewed, from the purlins to the roof battens. Your building surveyors may then recommend that some faults need urgent attention.

In the past, roof maintenance would be carried out with just ladders and 'crawler boards'. This practice is terribly unsafe, and contractors today will insist that scaffolding be used. A local roofing specialist can provide an estimate.

Building Surveys on houses

Are there any benefits to get the full structural survey instead of a HomeBuyer Report when considering a substantially modified mid terrace house?

Although recurrently, and incorrectly, described as Full Structural Surveys by many, they have been replaced by Building Surveys Go for a Building Survey if you are contemplating the house mentioned. A HomeBuyer Report has enough detail for a post fifties unmodified Sedgefield house of normal building materials i.e. brick and tile. Bear in mind that a number survey no go areas exist with a property survey - RICS chartered surveyor is not able to force or open up the structure of the property for example, or assess the serviceability of energy sources.
