HomeBuyer Report

Should I get a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a home in Thrapston and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey and is basically the same the same level of survey.

If the Thrapston property is a flat, or is an older property, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials, then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any alterations, RICS recommend you select a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap, but it does give you exhaustive analysis of the Thrapston property's state of repair as well as more detailed advice on defects , repairs and maintenance options .

Conservation area

Are there any problems I need to be wary of if buying a house in Thrapston inside a conservation area ?

There are nearly 10, 000 of conservation areas in England and Wales which are overseen by the local council.

A Building Surveyors are required by RICS to possess sufficient knowledge of local factors and any relation they have with the home. Prices will likely be enhanced owing to them retaining their original character.

Surveyors will advise if the home looks to be so designated and Section I Issues for your legal advisers of the Homebuyer Report will advise further investigations are raised as part of the legal process. Out of keeping changes to the property will also be advised in your survey but these are really more a concern for the solicitor.

Roof defects identified during a survey

Damp in the attic caused problems in the old property, and we are sensitive to the cost of roof repairs. What should we do about roof repairs?

This often causes anxiety for property purchasers with a roofing 'horror story' from a previous home. Many homes can be blighted by roofing woes. From gables to ridge flashing, all aspects of the roof must be reviewed. Flat roofs can also be a nuisance, caused by factors like amateur repairs.

The expense of insulating the attic, or other major roof work, means that some owners put it off for as long as possible. This is a false economy, as such issues can lead to more severe general structural problems. Prior to exchange, it may be worth sourcing from a roofing specialist in Thrapston a quote for any suggested work.

You should be aware that specialist expertise may be needed, and it could also be necessary to find .
