About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Whaley Bridge

HomeBuyer Report

Should we opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a property in Whaley Bridge and which one would be cheaper?

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

If the Whaley Bridge property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any significant alterations, RICS recommend you select a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it does provide you with comprehensive details of the Whaley Bridge property's condition and it includes advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

Damage caused by high rainfall

What impact should heavy rain have on a Whaley Bridge building? If there are issues, will they be troublesome to fix?

I find it odd that rainfall and the effect it can have on houses are rarely paid due attention by property buyers. If you have investigated the house in dry weather, problems are unlikely to be visible. Signs that drainage are blocked include mildew or damp in the roof, but you may wish to ask your surveyor for more detail. The good news is that drainage problems are usually easy to remedy, unless they are untreated or poorly maintained. The damage will steadily get harder to remedy, so do not be tempted to ignore the signs.

Building Surveys on houses

Are there any benefits for conducting the full structural survey in Whaley Bridge instead of a HomeBuyer Report if purchasing a abandoned end of terrace house?

Albeit now often referred to as Full Structural Surveys buy agents and buyers alike, these surveys are now called Building Surveys. This is now the correct property survey if planning to buy a modified property e.g. a neglected house in Whaley Bridge. The report will outline crucial information about the property's construction and any defects after a thorough visual inspection of the inside and outside of the main building and permanent outbuildings.
