Which Home Buyers Survey is the right choice?

  • House suitable for a HomeBuyer Report

    Homebuyer Report in Braunstone

    The RICS Homebuyer Report should be selected when you are purchasing a home constructed from conventional building materials such as brick and tile, in reasonable order and not over 100 years in age.

  • Property suitable for a Building Survey

    Building Survey in Braunstone

    A Building Survey (once known as a Full Structural Survey in Braunstone) will also be conducted by a MRICS or FRICS accredited surveyor and is more thorough. Choose this option when buying a non standard e.g. thatched properties.

  • Surveyor carrying out a Property Valuation

    Property Valuation Report in Braunstone

    This is a professional surveyor valuation of the property. This is usually chosen by cash purchasers or someone needing a formal valuation e.g. matrimonial dispute.

HomeBuyer Report

Should we select a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a home in Braunstone and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey, however it is essentially the same level of survey.

If the Braunstone property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any major works, RICS recommend you commission a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap, however it does give you a thorough analysis of the Braunstone property's condition as well as including advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

Traditionally built property

We are buying a property. What impact will the home's structure have on repairs?

Older construction methods and materials can concern buyers. Buildings built with traditional or "vernacular" techniques can be a drain to upkeep. You should consider that expert knowledge may be needed. Traditional materials may also need to be sourced. This can end up costing more than initially budgeted.

Roof defects identified during a survey

We're purchasing a building in Braunstone. I am particularly concerned about the state of the roof. What aspects of the attic will be reported on?

Residences in Braunstone in good condition can be blighted by roofing woes. From collar ties to sheathing, many parts of the roof and loft should be investigated, and any defects addressed as soon as possible.

Given the high cost of major roof repairs like a complete replacement, some homeowners may defer maintenance indefinitely. This makes both the cause and the consequences harder and even more expensive to treat when repairs do take place. Once the surveyor has delivered their report, consider arranging a quote from a Braunstone contractor for the job itself. Speak to Leicester Fibreglass Roofing of 165 Kingsway, Leicester, LE3 2PN on 0116-291 4844 for an estimate.

Conservation area

Are there any factors we need to on guard for if intending to buy a converted house in Braunstone in conservation area ?

There are thousands official conservation areas in England and Wales that are designated and monitored by the local council.

Home Buyers Surveys in Braunstone are required by RICS to possess sufficient knowledge of relevant local area factors and any relation may have on the building. The value of homes will likely be higher owing to the areas being unspoilt. However a growing number have fallen into a poor state for example - the huge increase in street clutter

Surveyors can be expected to advise you whether the location might be within a conservation area and Section I Issues for your legal advisers of a Homebuyer Report will suggest further investigations are carried out during the conveyancing process. Unsympathetic changes to the property may be advised in your survey, however these should be investigated by your legal representative.
