About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Melton Constable

HomeBuyer Report

Should we have a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a house in Melton Constable and which would be cheaper?

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

If the Melton Constable property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any works or an extension, RICS advise you carry out a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap however it does offer a more detailed analysis of the Melton Constable property's general condition as well as more detailed advice on defects , repairs as well as maintenance options .

Damage resulting from flooding

Are Melton Constable properties at risk, and does a home buyers survey investigate any water damage?

The lives of many homeowners in Melton Constable and across the UK have suffered as a result of flood damage; sensible owners and home buyers in Melton Constable are right to consider precautions. A flood danger alert service, with regular updates, is operated by the Environment Agency.

Flood water can enter a Melton Constable home through a number of routes, including air bricks, poorly fitted doors and windows, and seepage through external walls. Less expensive preventative measures include air brick covers, the data used to compile third-party flood assessments also takes into account flood defences and historic claims.

Roof defects identified during a survey

Poor roof maintenance brings up bad memories for us. I am particularly concerned about the state of the roof. What does a RICS surveyor check when the house is surveyed?

Melton Constable property that are otherwise ideal can still be subject to roofing woes, like bowing beams. All aspects of the roof should be reviewed, from the gables to the ridge flashing, and where the matter is serious, it should be rectified promptly.

It may be inconvenient to employ scaffolding to perform repairs, especially in the busy parts of Melton Constable, but it is a health and safety necessity. A builder can provide an estimate.

Building Surveys on flats 1

Should I pay more money for a full structural survey when considering a flat ?

The Full Structural Survey has a new title and is now called the Building Survey. You should choose the Building Survey for the flat referred to. A HomeBuyer Report is all you really need if investigating a mid century or later Melton Constable property built out of typical construction materials i.e. brick walls and tiled roof. You should be aware of one or two limitations exist with any survey as a surveyor is not in a position to (unless owners consent provided) force or open up the fabric of the building for example, or survey where hatches are over 3m above ground. Additionally flats often, by their very nature, mean the whole building cant easily be inspected and as a result the surveyor is only able to give an account of the flat itself, though the surveyor may go into detail about communal parts of the property like evidence of movement to the building.
