HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to book a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a property in Cookley and which one would be cheaper?

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

If the Cookley property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any an extension, RICS recommend you choose a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap, however it does give comprehensive details of the Cookley property's general condition and it includes advice on defects , repairs as well as maintenance options .

Defective door frame

In the HomeBuyer Report, what impact will a an amber light rating have on outside doors?

Issues requiring some attention are labelled condition rating 2. In contrast to more serious, 'red' rated, defects, these issues do not require immediate attention. 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. In Cookley, examples include loose glazing in a door frame. Outside doors are to be opened and closed where keys are available, but not forced open.

Broadly speaking, where doors have obviously been replaced, relevant issues are considered. This can include overall quality, whether the frame provides adequate support, and building regulations have been met (e.g. FENSA and Certass).

House Prices

We have found a property in Cookley. What will a RICS surveyor consider when valuing house prices in Cookley ?

There are a huge number of issues that might affect property values for instance whether any associated planning permissions come with the property or if there is any evidence of fungal decay. .

The best way for home buyers to get an accurate home valued is to get a Homebuyer Report which includes a professional valuation by default.

A chartered surveyor will actually visit the site as well as allowing for the myriad of area issues that have a bearing on property values.

Building Surveys on houses

What are the benefits to commission a full structural survey in Cookley rather than a HomeBuyer Report when considering a converted semi detached property?

Although sometimes still called Full Structural Surveys by many, they are now named Building Surveys You should have a Building Survey for the property you are considering. The HomeBuyer Report is appropriate for a non period Cookley house of standard construction materials and methods. Bear in mind that certain caveats exist with any residential survey because a chartered surveyor cannot force or open up the structure of the Cookley house nor can he/she assess heating installations.
