Home Buyers Surveys

These are comprehensive surveys which detail the current condition of a property. In England and Wales, the report is commissioned by the buyer, whereas the seller has the survey carried out in Scotland.

There are three types of reports available:

  • Home Condition Reports

  • Home Buyers Reports/Surveys

  • Building Surveys

Home Condition Reports

More suited to newer homes with less risk of defects or potential issues, these are quite basic and only cover the main aspects of a property. 

Home Buyers Reports

The home buyers surveys carried out by our home buyer and party wall surveyors at Crossbow Developments will detail any problems that may affect a property's overall integrity, along with advice from our experts on repairs and renovation. The reports also include other useful information, such as the estimated cost of rebuilding the property and its current valuation.

These reports are vital for home buyers as they can play an important role in negotiations whilst indicating what reworks may be required to ensure a comfortable and functional home. 

Building Surveys

The most detailed of all our professional surveys, our structural investigations further identify underlying problems and the potential outcome of overlooking them. Estimated repair costs will also be included. We recommend building surveys for older and listed properties in Rotherham, Sheffield and the surrounding areas. 

Advice From Crossbow Developments

Once your offer has been accepted by a seller, our home buyer and party wall surveyors recommend having a home buyers survey carried out. If any major issues are highlighted, you can consider lowering your initial offer or pulling out of the sale entirely.

We use drones during our surveys as they can safely access areas without issue and provide a real-time recording of our findings. 

Although home buyer reports are not a legal requirement in the UK, our team at Crossbow Developments recommends them for the peace of mind they offer. They present opportunities, whereas ‘going in blind’ may cost a lot more than you bargained for.
