About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Leiston

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to have a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a house in Leiston and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey but is effectively the same level of survey.

If the Leiston property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any alterations, RICS advise you select a Building Survey instead. This survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it does offer exhaustive analysis of the Leiston property's condition and it includes advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

Timber damage by insect larvae

We are buying in Leiston, and think we saw signs of vermin in the toilet. How do we investigate further?

Be aware that your solicitor's forms may not ask about this issue. Pests quite literally come in all shapes and sizes, and can be more difficult to treat than many buyers realise. It is vital that buyers consider this oft-overlooked aspect when making an offer.

Signs may not be evident for weeks or months, for example, termites are still rare in the UK, but may be present in imported timber. They are capable of almost hollowing out beams before they are discovered and can therefore put the structural integrity of a home at serious risk. As some pests can be very stubborn, knowing the risks, and chance of success before you buy is essential.
