HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to have a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a property in Brighstone and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey and is essentially the same comprehensive survey.

If the Brighstone property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any alterations, RICS recommend you choose a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap, however it will provide you with exhaustive analysis of the Brighstone property's condition as well as more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

We are buying in Brighstone and are looking for a 50s house built from rat-trap bond walls. What warnings would a property surveyor in Brighstone give? What impact do Brighstone environmental conditions have?

Brick-walled Brighstone residential property can be affected by numerous defects. Any such issues ought to be reported on, with repair advice also supplied. One frequently reported defect is diagonal cracking caused by ground movement. Whitehead Builders may be able to give a quote for any maintenance work. Contact them at 07400 148444 or 30 Marks Rd, Romford, RM7 7AH.

For buyers interested in less common uses of brick, consider the use of 'clicker' or misfired brick.

Building Surveys on houses

I don't understand the argument in spending a bit more on the full structural survey when looking into a derelict mid terrace home in Brighstone rather than a HomeBuyer Report?

Albeit frequently referred to as Structural Surveys by many agents and buyers, they are now defunct and have been renamed Building Surveys If buying a modified house, for example a period house in Brighstone - it is the most suitable choice of home survey to complete.

After an exhaustive inspection of the inside and outside of the main building and permanent outbuildings, a report (set out in the surveyor's individual format) is provided to the client going through any salient information about the construction and uses of the house.

There are several provisos with any residential survey insofar as a qualified RICS surveyor cannot open up the fabric of the of the Brighstone building e.g. lifting up fitted carpets.

Conservation area

Are there any potential pitfalls we would need to be wary of if planning to buy a property in Brighstone in conservation area, particularly with regards to property values?

There are many thousands official conservation areas in England and Wales which are overseen by local councils. Your surveyor are required by RICS to have local knowledge of local area factors and any relation they have with the property and its value. Property Prices will probably be greater which is down to them being largely unspoilt

Surveyors are expected report if the property looks like it may be within a conservation area and Section I of the Homebuyer Report will advise additional due diligence and enquiries are conducted during the legal process. Unauthorised developments to the building may be noted but these are really more a concern for your legal adviser.
