About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Higham Ferrers

HomeBuyer Report

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

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

If the Higham Ferrers property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out any works or an extension on the property, RICS recommend you commission a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it will give you an in-depth analysis of the Higham Ferrers property's state of repair in addition to information on defects as well as maintenance options .

Building Surveys on houses

I don't see the justification in upgrading to the full structural survey when considering a neglected end of terrace home in Higham Ferrers rather than a HomeBuyer Report?

Albeit conventionally called Full Structural Surveys by some, the correct term is actually now Building Surveys It is now the most appropriate choice of home survey when planning to buy an unusual house - such as an older house. A Building Survey outlines full and far-reaching insight concerning the buildings construction and uses in conjunction with any technical details, shortly after a thorough inspection.

Timber damage by insect larvae

A resident warned us about insects affecting some homes. Should we get a chartered surveyor?

Be aware that your solicitor's forms may not ask about this issue. This danger should be taken seriously. Signs may not be obvious. As an example, small tunnels in wooded beams may indicate the presence of house longhorn beetles. Remedies to vermin can include use of insecticides.
