HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a house in Horsforth and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey and is basically the same the same survey.

If the Horsforth property is a flat, or is an older property, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out any major works, you should you carry out a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap however it will provide you with a thorough analysis of the Horsforth property's state of repair along with advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

Damage caused by high rainfall

How important is it that we check gutters? Could damaged gutters lower the property value?

Climate change is regularly in the news. However the effect which wet conditions has on houses is rarely paid due attention by purchasers. One indication that drainage systems are blocked is spattered mud around the bottom of downspouts. The good news is that this is quite easy to resolve, if maintenance is taken seriously. If disregarded, however, the damage can be very costly and time-consuming to remedy.
