Which HomeBuyers Survey is the best choice for my potential property purchase ?

  • House suitable for a HomeBuyer Report

    Homebuyer Report in De Beauvoir Town

    A Homebuyer Report should be chosen when planning to purchase a property constructed from standard materials such as brick & tile, in reasonable repair and build after 1900.

  • Property suitable for a Building Survey

    Building Survey in De Beauvoir Town

    A RICS Building Survey (which used to be called a Full Structural Survey in De Beauvoir Town) will also be carried out by a MRICS or FRICS accredited surveyor and is more detailed. Choose this for unconventional such as stone wall or older homes.

  • Surveyor carrying out a Property Valuation

    Property Valuation Report in De Beauvoir Town

    This is an independent valuation of the property. This report is typically chosen by mortgage free buyers or someone needing a formal valuation e.g. a dispute.

HomeBuyer Report

Should I select a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a home in De Beauvoir Town and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey, however it is basically the same the same survey.

If the De Beauvoir Town property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any substantial modifications, RICS recommend you opt for a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap however it does give you exhaustive analysis of the De Beauvoir Town property's general condition as well as including advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Damage caused by high rainfall

Are wet conditions an issue in De Beauvoir Town? Will the house surveyor in De Beauvoir Town report on this? Can damaged drainage decrease our property's value?

I find it odd that this issue is overlooked by purchasers. Signs that gutters are under performing include water pooling below gutters.

Fortunately, problems with drains are usually easy to fix, unless they are disregarded. The damage will steadily get harder to remedy, so do not be tempted to ignore the signs.

Shocking Electrics

When we visited the mid-century home we are intending to move into, it looked like there is an unsafe electrical system - will a surveyor write anything on the electrics?

During a Home Buyers Survey in De Beauvoir Town your surveyor will usually add detail on the condition of the electrics if it is clear that they are in an unsatisfactory condition. This will include a general examination of the unconcealed parts of the wiring or fusebox as well as other things, for example reporting on the condition of fixed appliances, for example water heaters or reporting on the state of a representative sample of light fittings. Ascertaining the whereabouts of any evidence of the most recent Periodic Inspection Report carried out by an electrician will form part of the survey.

The IEE suggest that a Periodic Inspection Report (PIR) need be completed every ten years (or every 5 if letting out).

Roof defects identified during a survey

I have put in an offer on a De Beauvoir Town home with a loft conversion, and we are wary of potential roofing issues. What should we do about roof repairs?

Questions like this are often asked of surveyors by buyers in De Beauvoir Town who are aware that property could unfortunately be experiencing roofing woes. From concrete tiles to tie beams, the whole roof should be reported on. Difficulties can often arise in the case of flat roofs, caused by badly installed felting.

Given the high cost of major roof repairs like loft insulation, 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. Prior to exchange, it may be worth sourcing from a builder a quote for any suggested work.
