Home Buyers Survey in Bawtry

HomeBuyer Report

Should we have a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a home in Bawtry and which is cheaper?

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

If the Bawtry property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out any alterations, RICS recommend you go for a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap however it does give you a more detailed analysis of the Bawtry property's condition along with more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

Landfill site near home

What should we be worried about if buying a building close to a rubbish landfill

Landfill Sites come in many shapes and sizes e.g. non-hazardous waste. Nobody would want to live near one (4/5 people live under 2km away from one). Risks might include structurally instability. Potential health concerns for example birth defects have been associated with landfill sites .

Bawtry surveyors will find any structural issues linked to the landfill. Your solicitor will conduct conveyancing searches of the British Geological databases in addition to Doncaster Local Authority and give you the results of the search .

Timber damage by insect larvae

My friend spotted signs of an infestation in the shower room - Is a HomeBuyer Report advisable?

Infestations can range from the mild and harmless, to the seriously harmful. This concern should be taken seriously. It is vital that buyers consider this oft-overlooked aspect when making an offer.

Signs may not be evident for weeks or months. For example, irritating cluster flies will hibernate in Autumn, but will return every year without treatment. As some pest problems can be very stubborn, knowing the risks, and chance of success before you buy is essential. Your RICS surveyor may report on signs of infestation, but if you have specific concerns they can be taken into account.

Traditionally built property

We are purchasing an older converted stable in Bawtry. What consequences will the age have on regular maintenance?

Use of traditional methods can create difficulties for an owner, and Bawtry property built with traditional methods can be challenging to upkeep. You should bear in mind that specialist knowledge may be needed. Traditional materials may also need to be sourced. This can make the final cost hard to predict. Mention this to your chartered surveyor for further advice.

Roof defects identified during a survey

One of the neighbours said that wet rot had been a concern, and we are wary of potential roofing issues. What does the Bawtry building surveyor investigate during the survey?

This often causes anxiety for Bawtry homebuyers. Homes throughout Bawtry can often hide difficulties with the roof. From roof battens to gables, the whole roof will be taken into account. Flat roofs can also be a nuisance, caused by factors like amateur repairs.

The expense of laying tar paper or felt, or other major roof work, means that some owners put it off for as long as possible. This is a false economy, as such issues can lead to more severe general structural problems. It may be advisable to source an estimate for any work prior to exchange.
