Home Buyers Survey in Knaresborough

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a house in Knaresborough and which one is cheaper?

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

If the Knaresborough property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out any alterations, RICS recommend you go for a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap, but it will provide you with a more detailed analysis of the Knaresborough property's condition as well as advice on structural defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

Roof defects identified during a survey

The vendor said that the had been a problem with leaks in the roof. What should we investigate during the survey?

This is a common concern for Knaresborough homebuyers. Many homes will suffer roof maintenance problems. From wind braces to eaves, all aspects of the roof will be taken into account. Problems can often arise in the case of flat roofs, caused by being literally flat, as opposed to on a small incline so that water can drain correctly.

Given the high cost of major roof repairs like asbestos cement removal, 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. Prior to exchange, it may be worth sourcing from a roofing contractor in the local area a quote for any suggested work.
