Home Buyers Survey in Glossop

HomeBuyer Report

Should I book a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a home in Glossop and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey but is basically the same the same level of survey.

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

If you are thinking about whether to make any major works, it would be better that you choose a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap, but it does offer an in-depth analysis of the Glossop property's state of repair as well as including information on defects as well as maintenance options .

English Heritage

I am planning to buy a home near Melandra Castle Roman Fort , will this affect the property's value?

Melandra Castle Roman Fort is a scheduled monument considered to be of national importance. Places of local interest can certainly increase the attractiveness of an area. Examples of other monuments of interest include Ringwork In Castlehill Wood.. A RICS valuer will consider all regional factors during the home buyers survey in Glossop. See the English Heritage website for further details on Melandra Castle Roman Fort.

Traditionally built property

We are purchasing a 16th Century dovecot. What effect will the slate roof have on upkeep?

Many buyers in Glossop plan to buy a home with character. Use of traditional methods, however, can often be problematic, and Glossop houses built using traditional methods can be challenging to repair. It is often the case that specialist knowledge is necessary. Traditional materials may also need to be sourced, particularly in the case of property in a conservation area. This may make asking the seller for more detail about their current maintenance regime a good idea.

Building Surveys on houses

We are acquiring a derelict period end of terrace property in Glossop, do I need to opt for a full structural survey?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey.

The HomeBuyer Report is appropriate for a mid 20th century of later Glossop home made out of conventional building materials. If you are buying a modified property like an older house in Glossop, it is now the most appropriate choice of home survey. Shortly after a thorough visual inspection of the accessible areas of the house, a non prescribed format of report will be sent to the client summarising any frequently critical professional advice concerning the construction materials used on the house. There will be several limitations with any residential survey because the surveyor will not be able to (unless owners consent provided) force or open up the fabric of the Glossop house - such as lifting up fitted carpets.
