HomeBuyer Report

Should I get a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a property in Upper Shirley and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, however it is basically the same the same survey.

If the Upper Shirley property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out significant alterations, RICS advise you opt for a Building Survey.

Roof defects identified during a survey

Another resident of the building said that damage to the parapet had been a concern. I am particularly concerned about the state of the roof. Which issues relating to the roofing will be checked?

Questions like this are often asked of building surveyors by home buyers who are aware that property can be blighted by difficulties with the roof. From ridge flashing to decking, all aspects of the roof will be taken into account, and where the matter is serious, it should be rectified promptly.

Repairs to a dilapidated roof need not always be costly, but they should be budgeted for carefully. A building survey prior to exchange is highly recommended, so that you fully understand what expenses you will be facing. A roofing contractor can provide an estimate.
