Home Buyers Survey in Westhoughton

HomeBuyer Report

Should I have a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a property in Westhoughton and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey, however it is essentially the same comprehensive survey.

If the Westhoughton property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out any major works, RICS advise you go for a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it does give you an in-depth analysis of the Westhoughton property's general condition as well as including more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

What impact should high levels of rainfall have on a home in Westhoughton? If there is damage, will they be expensive to fix?

One indication that drainage are a cause for concern is leaves or other vegetation causing a blockage. Poor drainage can lead to overflowing or blocked sewage.

The good news is that guttering issues are usually easy to resolve, if maintenance is taken seriously.However, the damage caused, where untreated or poorly maintained, will be expense to remedy and resulting damp and mould could become a health risk.
