HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a property in Chafford Hundred and which one is the cheapest?

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

If the Chafford Hundred property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make an extension, it would be better that you opt for a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap, however it will give you an in-depth analysis of the Chafford Hundred property's state of repair and it includes advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Damage caused by high rainfall

What impact will rainfall have on a house?

The impact of climate change is widely reported, yet the effect which rain has on Chafford Hundred property is rarely paid due attention. If you have only been to the residence in good weather, defects may not have been obvious. This can lead to hazardous mould.

These issues are, generally speaking, straightforward to remedy, if not neglected. If not unblocked on a regular basis, however, the damage can be very costly and time-consuming to remedy.

Chimney stacks

On a Chafford Hundred HomeBuyer Report, what might a an red light rating mean for chimney stacks?

Matters which require urgent action are highlighted with a 'red' or condition rating of 3. Such issues can have a significant impact on a residence's value. The RICS HomeBuyer Report is designed to be user-friendly. As buyers in Chafford Hundred are unlikely to be experts in local building techniques and materials themselves, the report is written with as little jargon as possible. Three colour coded ratings give an understanding of how concerning each aspect of the report is. An example defect for this is abandoned openings for flue connections to the chimney. Section E elements should be examined with binoculars as necessary. A report on a lower ground flat, for instance, may not require this.

Shocking Electrics

When we saw the unmodernised property we expect to lease we saw that there is an old fuse board - does a the surveyor write anything on the general state of the electrical system?

When preparing a Chafford Hundred Home Buyers Survey a RICS surveyor will usually remark on the overall electrical system if it is obvious that the electrics are in an unsatisfactory condition. The RICS surveyor is expected to report back on issues like confirming the state of repair of any fitted appliances, e.g. storage radiators.

Verifying the existence of any evidence of a test on the condition of the electrical installations conducted by an electrician should usually form part of the Homebuyer report in Chafford Hundred.
