What HomeBuyers Survey should I pick for my intended property purchase ?

  • House suitable for a HomeBuyer Report

    Homebuyer Report in Beaufort

    The Homebuyer Report should be chosen when you are purchasing a property built from conventional building materials such as tile and brick, not dilapidated and constructed after 1900.

  • Property suitable for a Building Survey

    Building Survey in Beaufort

    A Building Survey (often referred to as a Full Structural Survey in Beaufort) is also carried out by a RICS chartered surveyor and is more comprehensive. Opt for this when buying a non standard , for example thatched houses.

  • Surveyor carrying out a Property Valuation

    Property Valuation Report in Beaufort

    This is an independent valuation of the property. It is often chosen by mortgage free buyers or someone needing a formal valuation e.g. for probate.

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to select a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a house in Beaufort and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey but is effectively the same.

If the Beaufort property is a flat, or is an older property, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make alterations, it would be better that you carry out a Building Survey instead. This survey is not as cheap but it does provide you with comprehensive details of the Beaufort property's state of repair as well as including information on defects as well as maintenance options .

Roof defects identified during a survey

We are buying a loft-conversion in Beaufort. What should we do about roof repairs?

This is often asked by Beaufort buyers who know that homes can still be subject to roofing woes, like incorrectly applied waterproofing. Any part of the roof or loft, such as parapet walls, ought to be checked, and where the matter is serious, it should be rectified promptly.

Upkeep can be the cause of serious accidents, which is why modern contractors refuse to work without scaffolding. If a estimate for roofing work is required, a builder from the area can provide one.

Deteriorated timber

On a HomeBuyer Report carried out in Beaufort, what are common defects Condition rating 3 impacting joinery and finishes?

Severe defects impacting the house are indicated with a 'red' condition rating of 3. Defects marked in red may also need further inspection by an expert. The RICS HomeBuyer Report is designed to be user-friendly, unlike some more complex survey reports. A 'traffic light' system of colour coding is used to confirm the seriousness of any issues included in the survey. This section includes visual aspects of the roof, checked with the aid of binoculars where appropriate. Any timber or PVC cladding fixed to the main walling will be covered. Missing paint or caulking on concrete sidings are an example of this.

Damage resulting from flooding

Does a Beaufort house surveyor consider any flood damage?

Heavy rain, overflowing waterways, tidal activity and poor drainage could all cause major flooding, and home purchasers cannot know that insurance against flooding will continue to be available. Your RICS surveyor may use several methods to determine if the house in question is in danger.

Flooding can increase the likelihood of water entering a house, such as via landscaping or paved areas sloping towards the property. Section J of the survey report contains details, where applicable, of flooding risks found within the boundaries of the house or on adjacent sites. The house surveyor may ask the seller if the house has previously flooded. Note that the response to such enquires should not be exclusively relied upon.
