Home Buyers Survey in Victoria

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to choose a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a house in Victoria and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey and is basically the same the same level of survey.

If the Victoria property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make any works or an extension on the Victoria property, you should you opt for a Building Survey. This option is less cheap, however it will give a thorough analysis of the Victoria property's general condition as well as advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Damage caused by high rainfall

Is it recommended that we check gutters? Will the Victoria chartered surveyor report on this? Are repairs going to be expensive?

Despite England's reputation for wet weather the impact heavy rain can have on property is rarely paid due attention. For instance, spattered mud around the bottom of downspouts will likely suggest that the downspouts are damaged. Luckily, issues with rainwater goods are usually easy to resolve. If poorly maintained, however, the damage will impact both the home's value, and the residents' enjoyment of the property.

Landfill site near home

What should we be wary of if buying a home near to a refuse landfill site

Landfill Sites are used for a variety of waste for example: hazardous waste. Nobody would want to live near one (4/5 people live near one). Risks might include hazardous chemicals. Health problems like cancer have been associated to landfill sites .

Homebuyer reports in Victoria will flag up structural issues resulting from the landfill. Your legal representative will carry out conveyancing searches of the Landmark database and Westminster Local Authority and inform you if the search uncovers a local landfill site .

Roof defects identified during a survey

The seller said that a leak had been a concern - What aspects of the attic will be checked during the survey?

Residential property in Victoria with no other major issues can often hide roof maintenance problems, such as torn or punctured damp-proofing. From tie beams to dormers, the roof structure as a whole must be reviewed. Flat roofs are also known for the trouble they can cause, often the result of being literally flat, as opposed to on a small incline so that water can drain correctly.

Costly quotes for roofing jobs (such as felting a flat roof) 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. A contractor can provide an estimate.
