Home Buyers Survey in Finningley

HomeBuyer Report

Should I book a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a home in Finningley and which one would be cheaper?

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

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

If you are thinking about whether to carry out any works or an extension, RICS recommend you choose a Building Survey. This option is less cheap, however it will offer a more detailed analysis of the Finningley property's state of repair as well as an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

Roof defects identified during a survey

We are buying a loft-conversion in Finningley. I am particularly concerned about the state of the roof. What does the building surveyor in Finningley look for?

This often causes anxiety for purchasers with a roofing 'horror story' from a previous home. Homes throughout Finningley can be blighted by roofing problems, such as. Any part of the roof or loft, such as valley gutters, ought to be checked, and where the matter is serious, it should be rectified promptly.

An expensive quote for roofing jobs (such as insulating the attic) 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. Contact Lawton M of 1 Boswell Cl, New Rossington, Doncaster, DN11 0RD on 01302 863577 for a quote.

Building Surveys on houses

Should I pay more for a full structural survey for fifties house ?

The Building Survey is now the correct term for the Full Structural Survey following its reclassification some time ago by RICS. Choose the Building Survey in relation to the property outlined. A HomeBuyer Report will suffice if buying a mid 20th century of later unmodified Finningley home built out of standard building materials. There are certain limitations exist with a property survey - a chartered surveyor will not be able to open up the structure of the house nor can he/she comment on non-permanent out buildings.
