About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Gamston

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to book a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a property in Gamston and which one is cheaper?

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

If the Gamston property is an apartment, or is a period property, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction, you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any substantial modifications, it would be better that you go for a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap however it does give you an in-depth analysis of the Gamston property's condition along with more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Timber damage by insect larvae

My friend spotted signs of pests in the dining room. Is a Building Survey advisable?

Be aware that your solicitor's forms may not ask about this issue. When purchasing a property, this matter should be borne in mind. An affected property may not always be easy to identify.

For example, termites are still rare in the UK, but may be present in imported timber. They are capable of almost hollowing out beams before they are discovered and can therefore put the structural integrity of a home at serious risk. Treatment for an infestation may include insecticides and removal of infected furniture.

Traditionally built property

What should we consider when purchasing older property in Gamston? What impact will the residence's thatched roof have on upkeep?

Vernacular, or traditional, architecture can occasionally give buyers second thoughts. Property built with traditional or "vernacular" techniques can be challenging to upkeep. You should bear in mind that specialist knowledge may be needed, and it could also be necessary to find Traditional materials. Speak to the property surveyor for more detail.

Damage resulting from flooding

We believe this residence is located near a stream. Is there a major flood risk? Would our house surveyor check flooding?

The lives of many home owners in Gamston and across the UK have been seriously affected by floods, and property buyers cannot know that insurance against flooding will continue to be available. The Environment Agency maintain a flood warning service, with regular updated risk assessments, and a property surveyor will advise on repairs or preventative measures. An awareness of characteristics of the Gamston area likely to affect the home in Gamston also enables the property surveyor to advise flooding may be a risk. Oral enquiries can sometimes be made of the estate agent, but this information may not be accurate.
