HomeBuyer Report

Should I have a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a home in Beckenham and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same comprehensive survey.

If the Beckenham property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any major works, you should you commission a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap, but it does provide you with an in-depth analysis of the Beckenham property's state of repair along with information on defects , repairs and maintenance options .

Conservatory

For a HomeBuyer Report on a Beckenham home what can 'E7' refer to?

This section covers conservatories and porches. The type and condition of these parts will also be mentioned in the report. Inadequate end bearing in joists would be reported here, for example. The format of the RICS HomeBuyer Report is clear and easy to read, unlike less prescriptive surveys. These may offer more complex detail, but they are also less useful for house buyers in Beckenham deciding whether or not to purchase a property. Your property surveyor will mark each aspect of the property included in Section E with either a green, orange or red rating, to indicate how concerning each aspect of the report is.
