About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Hanslope

HomeBuyer Report

Should we have a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a house in Hanslope and of the 3, which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same survey.

If the Hanslope property is a flat, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make an extension on the property, RICS recommend you select a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap, however it does offer a thorough analysis of the Hanslope property's condition and it includes advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Damage caused by high rainfall

How will we know what impact can rain have on our new house? Are repairs going to be expensive?

Despite England's reputation for wet weather the effect which wet weather has on buildings is rarely paid due attention by property buyers. One indication that rainwater goods are worth a closer look is spalling on walls around drainage. Poor drainage can lead to damage to foundations.

In most cases, problems with drains are usually easy to fix, unless they are not cleared out regularly. The damage will steadily get harder to remedy, so do not be tempted to ignore the signs.

Roof defects identified during a survey

The agent said that the had been a problem with leaks in the roof, and we are wary of potential roofing issues. What aspects of the roofing will be reported on?

This is often asked by home buyers who know that homes can, to the disappointment of their would-be owners, still suffer difficulties with the roof, for example, missing tiles. From collar ties to purlins, the roof structure as a whole must be reviewed. The are also numerous flat-roofed properties in Hanslope, including many apartment blocks. In these cases, the RICS surveyors will look for a range of signs, including badly installed felting.

Given the high cost of major roof repairs like felting a flat roof, 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. Once the surveyor has delivered their report, consider arranging a quote from a roofing contractor for the job itself.
