Home Buyers Survey in Moseley

HomeBuyer Report

Should I get a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a home in Moseley and which one would be cheaper?

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

If the Moseley property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials, you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out major works, RICS recommend you carry out a Building Survey instead. This more detailed survey is less cheap but it does provide you with a thorough analysis of the Moseley property's condition as well as including advice on defects and maintenance options .

Damage resulting from flooding

Does a Moseley surveyor check for possible flood damage?

The Law Society estimate that 2.2m homes are at risk of flood damage; sensible owners and house purchasers in Moseley are right to consider precautions.

As with many aspects of home ownership, flood prevention is better (and cheaper) than a cure.

Flood water can enter a house in Moseley through several routes, including seepage through external walls. An awareness of characteristics of the Moseley area likely to affect the house in Moseley also enables the surveyor to advise flooding may be a risk. The surveyor may ask the current owner if the house in Moseley has previously flooded. Note that the response to such enquires should not be exclusively relied upon.

Building Surveys on flats 1

Is it best to go for a full structural survey prior to purchasing a converted seventies loft flat close to Moseley?

The Full Structural Survey is now dubbed the Building Survey. When buying an unconventional Moseley property, for example an unloved flat - the Building Survey is the correct survey. It summarises comprehensive and salient insight concerning the homes construction as well as any maintenance needs, following a thorough visual inspection of any accessible parts of the flat. Additionally flat conversions make access more complicated, and your appointed surveyor is only authorised give details on the flat itself although he/she provide an opinion other tenant shared areas e.g. security systems.

Damage caused by high rainfall

Is it a good idea to look into drainage? Are repairs going to be expensive?

I find it odd that the effect which rain has on properties is not considered by buyers. If you have only been to the house you are buying in on a sunny day, obvious defects may be harder to find. Whether buying in Moseley or elsewhere, difficult downspouts does not necessarily mean that you need to pull out. Such matters are often simple to repair. However, if the drains are not unblocked on a regular basis, the resulting damage can lower the value of the property and become increasing harder to repair.
