Home Buyers Survey in Stilton

HomeBuyer Report

Should we have a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a property in Stilton and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey but is essentially the same survey.

If the Stilton property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make major works, RICS recommend you select a Building Survey. This option is less cheap however it will provide you with an in-depth analysis of the Stilton property's condition as well as information on defects and maintenance options .

Damage resulting from flooding

We are planning to buy a ground floor flat in Stilton, does the surveyor check for indications of flood damage?

Recent conflict between insurers has the government has caused a great deal of uncertainty; sensible owners and home purchasers in Stilton are right to consider precautions.

As with many aspects of home ownership, flood prevention is better (and cheaper) than a cure. Flood water can enter a Stilton property through several routes, including door frames. Details relating to signs of flooding may be reported in Section J of the HomeBuyer Report, the data used to compile third-party flood assessments also takes into account flood defences and historic claims.

Roof defects identified during a survey

We are buying a loft-conversion in Stilton. I am particularly concerned about the state of the roof. What advice would the surveyor give in their report?

This is a common concern for purchasers. Homes throughout Stilton can often hide roofing woes, like bad drainage. All parts of the roof must be considered during the survey. This can include anything from wind braces to dormers. Flat roofs are also known for the trouble they can cause, often the result of amateur repairs.

Costly quotes for roofing jobs (such as asbestos cement removal) may have scared off some homeowners from carrying out necessary work. In extreme cases, this may be the reason for the sale, so buyers must be vigilant and employ the services of a qualified surveyor before the exchange of contracts. 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.
