Home Buyers Survey in Helmsley

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to choose a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a home in Helmsley and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same comprehensive survey.

If the Helmsley property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out alterations on the Helmsley property, you should you commission a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap, however it does provide you with exhaustive analysis of the Helmsley property's state of repair and it includes advice on structural defects , repairs and maintenance options .

Traditionally built property

We are purchasing in Helmsley. What will we need to investigate when purchasing an old building? What should be budgeted for maintenance?

Vernacular, or traditional, architecture can worry purchasers. Helmsley houses built using traditional methods can be a chore to repair. It is often the case that specialist expertise is necessary. Traditional materials may also need to be sourced, particularly in the case of property in a conservation area.

Roof defects identified during a survey

The person in the flat below said that the had been a problem with rotten beams. What should we do about roof repairs?

This is frequently addressed by property surveyors. Many residential properties can, to the disappointment of their would-be owners, still suffer roofing woes. All aspects of the roof should be reviewed, from the sheathing to the tie beams. The property surveyors could suggest that some of the faults must be dealt with immediately.

Roof repairs need not always be costly, but they should be budgeted for carefully. A building survey prior to exchange is highly recommended, so that you fully understand what expenses you will be facing. A roofing specialist with accreditation can provide a quote.

Building Surveys on houses

Can you please explain the reason for having the full structural survey if purchasing a neglected semi detached cottage in Helmsley rather than a HomeBuyer Report?

Albeit they are often referred to as Structural Surveys, they are now defunct and have been renamed Building Surveys Plump for a Building Survey if you are thinking of buying the house outlined. The HomeBuyer Report is sufficient if buying a mid 20th century of later Helmsley house of conventional construction materials. There are a number limitations come with any residential survey - your local Helmsley surveyor cannot force or open up the structure of the house of inspect under floor (unless accessible).
