Home Buyers Survey in Seaton

HomeBuyer Report

Should we go for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a house in Seaton and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey and is effectively the same survey.

If the Seaton property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any works or an extension, RICS recommend you select a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap but it does give you a more detailed analysis of the Seaton property's condition and it includes advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Roof defects identified during a survey

I have put in an offer on a Seaton building with a loft conversion, and we expect to budget something for roof maintenance. What does the property surveyor investigate during the survey?

Seaton property in otherwise fine condition can, to the disappointment of their would-be owners, still suffer damage to the roof. All parts of the roof must be considered during the survey. This can include anything from tie beams to dormer windows. The house surveyors could suggest that some of the faults must be dealt with immediately.

Given the high cost of major roof repairs like loft insulation, some homeowners may defer maintenance indefinitely. This makes both the cause and the consequences harder and even more expensive to treat when repairs do take place. Once the surveyor has delivered their report, consider arranging a quote from a roofing contractor for the job itself.

Damage resulting from flooding

We're purchasing in Seaton. Is there a flood risk, and will the home buyers survey search for possible flooding damage, or if other properties have been affected?

The impact of flooding, both in the region of Seaton and nationwide, is a serious concern for owners, and property purchasers cannot know that insurance against flooding will continue to be available. A surveyor has a number of options to assess whether a property is vulnerable. Flood water can enter a home in Seaton through several routes, including seepage through external walls. An awareness of characteristics of the Seaton area likely to affect the home in Seaton also enables the chartered surveyor to advise flooding may be a risk, the data used to compile third-party flood assessments also takes into account flood defences and historic claims.

Timber damage by insect larvae

We are buying a house in Seaton but are worried about insects. What advice should we get?

Purchasers should be aware that there is no legal obligation for the vendor to mention a pest issue. Unfortunately, the impact to a house and its inhabitants can carry serious health risks and affect its value. Evidence may not be easy to find, for example, house longhorn beetles can be identified by evidence of small tunnels through beams and floorboards, burrowed by the larvae. Remedies to vermin can include removal of infected furniture. Your property surveyor may report on signs of infestation, especially if you have raised your concerns beforehand.

Building Surveys on apartments

Is it the right choice to order a full structural survey prior to buying a defective, forties loft apartment in Seaton?

Building Survey is now the correct term for the Structural Survey following its reclassification a couple of years ago by RICS. It is now the correct survey to choose when buying an unusual property like a dilapidated house. The formal report details full and significant insight in relation to the property's condition on top of any technical details, following a thorough inspection of the accessible parts.
