HomeBuyer Report

Should I get a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a home in Barton under Needwood and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same level of survey.

If the Barton under Needwood property is a flat, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make substantial modifications, it would be better that you opt for a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it does give a more detailed analysis of the Barton under Needwood property's condition as well as including an opinion on defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

Building Surveys on houses

Should I pay a higher price for a full structural survey, instead of a Homebuyer Report when buying Edwardian townhouse in Barton under Needwood?

The Building Survey is now the correct term for the Structural Survey following its reclassification some time ago by RICS. The HomeBuyer Report is detailed enough if investigating a 60 year old or less unmodified Barton under Needwood property made out of standard construction materials and methods. A Building Survey is certainly the correct choice for the house mentioned. Two to three days after a thorough site survey of all accessible areas a written report (pdf and written copy) will be sent to the buyer setting out thorough and important professional advice about the materials used for the construction of the house.

There are one or two restrictions with any survey to consider insofar as RICS chartered surveyor wont be able to open up the fabric of the of the Barton under Needwood house for example undoing electrical fittings. This page for a simple guide on home buyers surveys in Barton under Needwood.

Traditionally built property

We are buying in Barton under Needwood. What will we need to take notice of when buying an old building? Will maintenance costs be higher?

The age of a structure can worry purchasers. Houses featuring traditional or "vernacular" techniques can be surprisingly expensive to repair. It is often the case that specialist knowledge is necessary. Materials suitable for the work may also need to be sourced, particularly in the case of Grade I listed property.

Conservatory

On the HomeBuyer Report what effect will a an amber light rating have on 'E7 - Conservatory and porches' ?

Porches, conservatories and similar elements of the property's construction are included here. Any signs of inappropriate use, such as using a conservatory as a bedroom or kitchen will be considered too. Ledger board problems is one defect applicable to this section.

RICS created the HomeBuyer Report to give home buyers in Barton under Needwood a clear and easy to read report on the condition of the home they plan to buy, with a minimum of technical jargon. Your property surveyor will mark each aspect of the property included in Section E with either a green, orange or red rating, to indicate to what extent each defect requires attention. A condition rating of two means that the element covered will need work at some point, but they are not considered to be urgent or serious. They may also require frequent upkeep.
