Home Buyers Survey in Scarborough

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to have a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a home in Scarborough and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same comprehensive survey.

If the Scarborough property is a flat or maisonette, or is a period property, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any substantial modifications, RICS recommend you select a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap, but it does give you a thorough analysis of the Scarborough property's state of repair as well as advice on defects , repairs and maintenance options .

Damage resulting from flooding

Are Scarborough properties at risk, and does a chartered surveyor check flooding damage?

Flooding has become a major issue, not least because last year was the second wettest on record, and the value of a property in an at-risk area may be impacted. A surveyor has a number of options to assess whether a property is vulnerable. In addition, the HomeBuyer Report may recommend maintenance.Familiarity with characteristics of the local area likely to affect house in Scarborough enables the home surveyor to surmise flooding may be a risk, even if the property has not itself flooded before. The home surveyor may ask the residents about historical floods, although the result of these enquires should be treated as a guide only.

Roof defects identified during a survey

A leaky roof brings up bad memories for us, and we are wary of potential roofing issues. What advice would the Scarborough house surveyor give in their report?

This is often asked by home buyers who know that homes may be exposed to difficulties with the roof. Every element should be checked, e.g. rafters. The are also numerous flat-roofed properties in Scarborough, including many apartment blocks. In these cases, the surveyors in Scarborough will look for a range of signs, including literally being flat. An incline of at least '1 to 80' is recommended.

It may be inconvenient to employ scaffolding to perform repairs, especially in the busy parts of Scarborough, but it is a health and safety necessity. If a estimate for roofing work is required, a roofing specialist can provide one. Call Bob Stone & Sons Roofing Maintenance Ltd of 11-13 James Street, Scarborough, YO12 7PH on 01723 360283 to request an estimate.
