Home Buyers Survey in Hackenthorpe

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to get a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a property in Hackenthorpe and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, however it is essentially the same level of survey.

If the Hackenthorpe property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any an extension, RICS recommend you opt for a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it will give you a more detailed analysis of the Hackenthorpe property's condition in addition to information on defects as well as maintenance options .

Damage caused by high rainfall

Are wet conditions an issue in Hackenthorpe? Will the Hackenthorpe property surveyor report on this?

Climate change is regularly in the news. However damp weather and the effect it can have on a property are usually overlooked by property buyers.

Signs that drainage are under performing include "gushing" gutters. That is not to say that drainage problems should cause you to reconsider a purchase. They are usually a simple matter to fix, unless they are not cared for. The damage will steadily get harder to remedy, so do not be tempted to ignore the signs.

Roof defects identified during a survey

We're purchasing a building in Hackenthorpe - What advice would the Hackenthorpe house surveyor give in their report?

Residential property in Hackenthorpe with no other major issues can often hide roofing problems, such as. All aspects of the roof should be reviewed, from the sheeting to the valley gutters. Difficulties can often arise in the case of flat roofs, caused by amateur repairs.

Given the high cost of major roof repairs like replacing rotten rafters or soffits, some homeowners may defer maintenance indefinitely. This makes both the cause and the consequences harder and even more expensive to treat when repairs do take place. If a estimate for roofing work is required, a local roofing specialist can provide one.

Stone block wall damage

We are buying a converted barn with Slate walls. What should we look in to?

Locally quarried stone may be more susceptible to specific issues. Defects such as salt contamination of affect many stone-walled Hackenthorpe houses.

Stone walls are either regular (cut) or irregular in structure, each of which will provoke particular concerns. Property surveys should give some repair guidance, like use of traditional methods to maintain older walls.
