HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to get a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a home in Colnbrook and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey but is basically the same the same level of survey.

If the Colnbrook property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any major works, RICS recommend you select a Building Survey instead. This survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it will give an in-depth analysis of the Colnbrook property's general condition as well as including advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

Conservatory

For the Colnbrook HomeBuyer Report, what impact will a Condition rating 2 have on conservatory and porches?

Amber, or condition rating 2, defects will need to be repaired or replaced at some point. The condition of this particular aspect of the property is unlikely to require urgent work, however. RICS HomeBuyer Reports are transparent, detailed surveys of residential property. The report uses colour coded condition ratings to give home purchasers a clear understanding of the severity of defects uncovered during the survey.

An example of this is leaning, settled and heaved columns forming the structure of a conservatory or

porch. Porches, conservatories and similar elements of the property's construction are included here. Any signs of inappropriate use, such as using a conservatory as a bedroom or kitchen will also be mentioned in the report.

Building Surveys on houses

Are there any advantages for choosing a full structural survey instead of a HomeBuyer Report when looking into a abandoned property?

Structural Surveys are no longer offered and the new more technical survey which is classified as the Building Survey is now available. The HomeBuyer Report will suffice for a post 1950s Colnbrook house made out of conventional construction materials and methods. RICS would recommend that you commission the Building Survey for the house outlined. You should be aware of certain survey no go areas exist with the survey because a surveyor cannot open up the structure of the property nor can they comment on the regulatory compliance of heating systems.

Damage caused by high rainfall

How will we know what impact will high levels of rainfall have on our new Colnbrook building? We're concerned about replacement costs.

I find it odd that the effect which heavy rain has on houses in Colnbrook is often overlooked by home buyers. If you have only seen the house you are buying in warm weather, issues may have been hidden. Blocked rainwater goods can result in hazardous mould.

These issues are, generally speaking, straightforward to fix if dealt with quickly. If not cared for, however, the damage will impact both the home's value, and the residents' enjoyment of the property.
