Home Buyers Survey in Ashton

HomeBuyer Report

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

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey, however it is essentially the same survey.

If the Ashton property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any major works, you should you book a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it does give a thorough analysis of the Ashton property's state of repair along with information on defects and maintenance options .

Damage resulting from flooding

Are Ashton properties at risk, and does a property surveyor investigate signs of flooding damage, or whether flooding has affected other houses on the street?

Last year was the second wettest year on record (source: Channel 4 News). Both purchasers and home owners in areas in danger of flooding are right to be worried. It is easily possible to assess whether a house is susceptible to flooding via any of a number of routes. Flood water can enter a property through several routes, including patio doors. Details relating to signs of flooding may be reported in Section J of the HomeBuyer Report. The chartered surveyor may ask the current owner if the property has previously flooded. Note that the response to such enquires should not be exclusively relied upon.

Near Ashton, the Riverside properties and roads between Clifford Bridge and Chudleigh, including Clifford Bridge, vulnerable parts of Dunsford, Bridford Mills, Christow Bridge, Doddiscombsleigh, Lower Ashton and Trusham status was recently updated to 'No warnings' by the Environment Agency.

Damage caused by high rainfall

Should we check gutters? Will the home buyers survey report on this? We're concerned about replacement costs.

Despite England's reputation for wet weather the effect which wet weather has on buildings in Ashton is rarely considered properly by property buyers. Signs that gutters are blocked include leaves or other vegetation causing a blockage. In most cases, drainage problems are generally easy to remedy.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

We want to put in an offer on a place in Ashton. Is there any brick chimney repair advice we should be aware of??

Brick homes in Ashton will be subject to several common problems. For instance, patchwork cracks caused by tie failure. This cracking may only be visible internally, and is accompanied by an irregular wall surface and should be taken very seriously.

Ashton home purchasers may need to consider that a range of courses arrangements and colours have been a feature of house construction in this country for 100s of years, and as such, repairs may be more involved than they appear. Consider the advice of both the surveyor and a builder or other specialist if potential structural defects arise during the survey.
