Conservatory

On a HomeBuyer Report carried out in Chandlers Ford, what might 'E7 - Conservatory and porches' refer to?

The RICS HomeBuyer Report is designed to be user-friendly. As buyers in Chandlers Ford are unlikely to be experts in local building techniques and materials themselves, the report is written with as little jargon as possible. Red, amber and green ratings give property purchasers indicate the severity of defects uncovered during the survey. In some cases, an element covered under Section E may be marked as NI, or 'Not inspected'. Irrelevant subsections of the HomeBuyer Report, like an assessment of a conservatory where the home in question does not have one, are disregarded. E7 elements are visually inspected. The type and condition of these parts will be considered too. Cantilevered joist problems is an example of this.

Building Surveys on houses

Should I upgrade to full structural survey before purchasing a substantially modified fifties cottage in Chandlers Ford?

Structural surveys have been renamed by RICS as Building Surveys. You should have a RICS Building Survey for the house referred to. A HomeBuyer Report is all you really need for a mid 20th century of later unmodified house of typical building materials i.e. brick and tile. Be aware that certain caveats exist with any survey as a chartered surveyor is not in a position to (unless safe to do so) force or open up the structure of the building of assess heating installations.
