Home Buyers Survey in South West England

HomeBuyer Report

Should I book a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a home in South West England and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey and is basically the same the same level of survey.

If the South West England property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make major works, RICS advise you opt for a Building Survey instead. The Building Survey is not as cheap however it will provide you with a thorough analysis of the South West England property's condition in addition to an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

Damage caused by high rainfall

What effect should high levels of rainfall have on a building in South West England? Will the RICS surveyor in South West England report on this? Could damaged drainage lower the property value?

Regular rainfall is common in South West England and across the country, but the effect which rain has on your home is usually overlooked by purchasers. If you have only been to the home in on a sunny day, defects may not have been obvious, and may lead to collapsed drains or overflowing septic tank. Fortunately, these defects are quite easy to resolve for a reasonable cost. However, if the drains are not cleared out regularly, 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.
