Home Buyers Survey in Mountsorrel

HomeBuyer Report

Should I opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a home in Mountsorrel and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey but is essentially the same survey.

If the Mountsorrel property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any substantial modifications, it would be better that you opt for a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it does give you a thorough analysis of the Mountsorrel property's condition as well as advice on defects and maintenance options .

Damage resulting from flooding

Does a home buyers survey inquire into possible flooding damage, or if nearby homes have been affected?

The Law Society estimate that 2.2m houses are at risk of flooding damage, and purchasers cannot know that insurance against flooding will continue to be available.

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

Flooding can increase the likelihood of water entering a residential property, such as via window frames. Section J of the survey report contains details, where applicable, of flooding risks found within the boundaries of the residential property or on adjacent sites. The building surveyor may ask the agent about historical floods, although the result of these enquires should be treated as a guide only.

Building Surveys on houses

I don't quite see the justification to opt for a full structural survey when acquiring a shabby semi detached home in Mountsorrel over a HomeBuyer Report?

Although sometimes still referred to as Full Structural Surveys buy agents and buyers alike - these comprehensive surveys are now entitled Building Surveys Choose the Building Survey for the house outlined. A HomeBuyer Report is enough for a mid 20th century of later Mountsorrel property built out of conventional construction materials.

There are certain caveats exist with any survey as a chartered surveyor is not authorised (unless safe to do so) open up the structure of the house nor can they look into the internal condition of chimneys.

Chimney stacks

On a Mountsorrel HomeBuyer Report, what might a an red light rating mean for chimney stacks?

A condition rating of three is used to emphasise the most crucial repairs. Defects marked in red may also need further inspection by an expert, where asbestos is suspected to have been used in the Mountsorrel house or flat's construction. These elements will be checked thoroughly from the ground as required. Spalling brickwork on the chimney stack is an example of this.

Traditionally built property

We are purchasing an old dovecot. Will regular maintenance costs be higher?

For houses in Mountsorrel built before the 20th Century, age can concern buyers, and Mountsorrel houses built using traditional methods can be expensive to repair. It is often the case that expert knowledge is necessary, and it could also be necessary to find Traditional materials, which could increase the importance of getting a comprehensive building survey.
