Home Buyers Survey in Sandbach

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a house in Sandbach and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, however it is basically the same the same level of survey.

If the Sandbach property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out any works or an extension, RICS advise you carry out a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it will provide you with exhaustive analysis of the Sandbach property's general condition along with information on defects as well as maintenance options .

Substandard guttering

In the HomeBuyer Report what are common Condition rating 3 defects for 'E3 - Rainwater pipes and gutters' ?

The rainwater goods are inspected by eye. Buyers should be aware that although drainage is reported on in this section, other aspects of the water system are referred to elsewhere suspected issues relating to a combined heating and water system. Undersized roof drains is one example. Severe defects impacting the Sandbach residence are indicated with a 'red' condition rating of 3. They can include defects which compromise the structural integrity of a residence. Some areas may be marked as 'Not inspected'. The structured format for the HomeBuyer Report is intended to produce a useful and comprehensive survey for any house buyers. As a result, some sections are omitted where they do not apply to the surveyed property.

Damage caused by high rainfall

What impact should high levels of rainfall have on a property? Will the building survey report on this?

As a frequent surveyor of local property, I find it strange that this issue is rarely considered properly by house purchasers. If you have only seen the property in the Summer, obvious defects may be harder to find. Signs that gutters are damaged include mildew or damp in the roof, and may lead to water damage. In most cases, drainage problems are quite easy to repair. However, if the drains are not cared for, the resulting damage can lower the value of the property and become increasing harder to repair. In the worst case scenario, deterioration of a building's foundations can become fatal to its structural integrity, risking collapse.
