HomeBuyer Report

Should we have a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a house in Cimla and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey and is essentially the same level of survey.

If the Cimla property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction, you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out any major works, RICS recommend you commission a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap, but it will give an in-depth analysis of the Cimla property's state of repair along with information on defects and maintenance options .

Timber damage by insect larvae

My partner spotted signs of bugs in the toilet. Is a HomeBuyer Report advisable?

Pests like carpet beetle larvae may sometimes seem a small, even irrelevant, matter when buying in Cimla. When purchasing a property, this matter should be borne in mind. Signs may not be obvious. As an example, woodworm, or larvae of the common furniture beetle, may be identified after finding neat small holes in wood, accompanied by piles of wood dust beneath. Remedies to vermin can include removal of infected furniture. Your chartered surveyor may report on signs of infestation, especially if you have raised your concerns beforehand.

Roof defects identified during a survey

Mould brings up bad memories for us - Which issues relating to the loft will be considered?

Residential property in Cimla in good condition could unfortunately be experiencing incorrectly applied waterproofing, among a range of other roofing issues. Any part of the roof or loft, such as wind braces, ought to be checked. The are also numerous flat-roofed properties in Cimla, including many apartment blocks. In these cases, the surveyors in Cimla will look for a range of signs, including amateur repairs.

Given the high cost of major roof repairs like laying tar paper or felt, 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. It may be advisable to source an estimate for any work prior to exchange.

External walls

On a Cimla HomeBuyer Report, what effect will a Condition Rating 1 have on main walls?

RICS created the HomeBuyer Report to give home buyers in Cimla a clear and easy to read report on the condition of the home they plan to buy, unlike less prescriptive surveys. These may offer more complex detail, but they are also less useful for home buyers in Cimla deciding whether or not to purchase a house. Your property surveyor will mark each aspect of the property included in Section E with either a green, orange or red rating, to indicate to what extent any problems or notable points may negatively impact the property. Aspects of the property in good or excellent condition are marked as 'green' with a condition rating of 1. However, frequent maintenance could still be needed.

All visible issues relating to the outside elevations and foundations are checked. Damp proofing, including the DPC, is also included here. Deteriorating or spalling bricks, for example, would be reported here.
