HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to select a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a house in Cilcain and which would be cheaper?

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

If the Cilcain property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any alterations, you should you choose a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap, but it will give a thorough analysis of the Cilcain property's general condition and it includes an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

Building Surveys on houses

Are there any reasons to order the full structural survey rather than a HomeBuyer Report when considering a un-loved detached house?

Although conventionally and incorrectly referred to as Full Structural Surveys by many home buyers - they are now called Building Surveys If contemplating the buying of a modified property such as an unloved house in Cilcain, it is now the correct choice to purchase. Subsequent to a thorough site survey of the accessible parts, a report (set out in the surveyor's individual format) is dispatched to the client setting out in depth and important details on the construction of the property. There will be certain restrictions with a Building Survey

insofar as a local surveyor is not in a position to (unless owners consent provided) force or open up the fabric of the Cilcain building, an example being moving heavy furniture.

Roof defects identified during a survey

Poor roof maintenance brings up bad memories for us. I am particularly concerned about the state of the roof. Which issues relating to the loft will be considered?

This is often asked by buyers who know that homes could feature roofing woes, like missing tiles. From sheeting to ceiling joists, the whole roof should be investigated, and where the matter is serious, it should be rectified promptly.

In the past, roof maintenance would be carried out with just ladders and 'crawler boards'. This practice is terribly unsafe, and contractors today will insist that scaffolding be used. Once the surveyor has delivered their report, consider arranging a quote from a roofing contractor for the job itself.

Overgrown flat roof with weeds

On a HomeBuyer Report carried out in Cilcain, what will 'E2' cover?

RICS HomeBuyer Reports are transparent, detailed surveys of residential property, and avoid potentially unfamiliar technical language. The report employs 'traffic light' ratings of red, amber and green the impact on the property individual defects may have.

Quite a common example is old, worn out roof elements. As part of Section E2, these elements are comprehensively checked, if these parts of the property are easy to view or easy to access. If it is not possible to properly access this area for inspection (if, for example, the property is a flat), the surveyor will make note of this in their report.
