About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Hook Norton

HomeBuyer Report

Should we have a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a property in Hook Norton and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same level of survey.

If the Hook Norton property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out alterations on the property, you should you go for a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap however it does give you comprehensive details of the Hook Norton property's general condition as well as advice on structural defects , repairs and maintenance options .

Damage caused by high rainfall

Do we need to look into drainage, and does our Hook Norton HomeBuyer Report mention it? We're concerned about replacement costs.

Both in Hook Norton, and throughout the county, rain is so common that buyers rarely think about it. Unfortunately the impact wet conditions can have on your home is rarely considered properly. One indication that drainage are damaged is damp stains around drainage. Poor drainage can lead to a damp or flooded cellar.

Luckily, these defects are usually easy to fix if dealt with quickly. If disregarded, however, the damage can be very costly and time-consuming to remedy.

Damage resulting from flooding

Does a Hook Norton Hook Norton surveyor look for possible flood damage?

A wide variety of factors can cause water damage caused by flooding, from inadequate drainage to tidal activity. If you are planning to buy in a flood-affected area, a Home Buyers Survey will inform your decision.

As with many aspects of home ownership, flood prevention is better (and cheaper) than a cure. Flood water can enter a home in Hook Norton through several routes, including seepage through external walls. Section J of the survey report contains details, where applicable, of flooding risks found within the boundaries of the home in Hook Norton or on adjacent sites. The surveyor may ask the current owner if the home in Hook Norton has previously flooded. Note that the response to such enquires should not be exclusively relied upon.
