HomeBuyer Report

Should I book a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a house in Rossington and which one is cheaper?

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

If the Rossington property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any an extension, RICS advise you carry out a Building Survey instead. This option is not as cheap but it does give you an in-depth analysis of the Rossington property's general condition as well as including advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

Damage resulting from flooding

Does a Rossington building survey consider indications of water damage?

The impact of flooding, both in the region of Rossington and nationwide, is a serious concern for residents, and insurance premiums. can be significantly affected for properties in flood-risk areas. A flood alert service, with regular updates, is operated by the Environment Agency, but a surveyor will also make recommendations to prepare for the worst.

Preventative measures can include costly but effective solutions e.g. appropriate drainage. The residential surveyor may ask the property owner or occupier about historical floods, although the result of these enquires should be treated as a guide only.

According to the Environment Agency, no recent flood alerts were found for Rossington.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

Can clay soil foundations be an issue? I am buying a property in Rossington. Does a Rossington HomeBuyer Report discuss soil composition the report?

Subsidence is often the result of unseen, subterranean causes, including clay soil. Issues range from groundwater level variations to swelling of the soil, both of which can put a property's foundations under great strain. Expansive and reactive types of clay soil can be troublesome. Expansive clay soil is particularly sensitive to shifts in water content, such as warped window frames in the bathroom.

Taking precautions, such as keeping standing water on the property in check, can make long term maintenance easier, and keep repair costs manageable. The building foundations may need extra support in some cases. A surveyor can confirm if this is necessary, as it can be a lengthy process.

Traditionally built property

I am buying a converted barn in Rossington. Will the property's age be a concern?

Many buyers have looked at purchasing a house with personality, like a farmstead. Vernacular, or traditional, architecture, however, can be a cause of concern for would-be buyers, and Property constructed with traditional methods can be expensive to repair. You should consider that expert knowledge may be needed, and it could also be necessary to find Construction materials, such as suitable timber, . Mention this to your property surveyor for further advice.

Shocking Electrics

When we were shown the period property we want to purchase, the agent said that there could be corrosion of the wiring - will the surveyor go into detail on electrical defects?

When performing a Rossington Homebuyer Report the RICS surveyor should usually make a note on the electrical system if it is suspected that the electrics are in an unsafe state of repair. A Chartered surveyor will also issues like verifying the condition of any fitted appliances e.g. water heaters or checking the condition of any visible wiring a representative sample of the range of light fittings and switch gear. Examining the evidence of a test on the condition of the electrical installations conducted by a suitably qualified electrician will usually form part of the Homebuyer report in Rossington.

The IEE suggest a Periodic Inspection be completed at least every 10 years (5 if renting out).
