HomeBuyer Report

Should we select a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a house in Dersingham and which one would be the cheapest?

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

If the Dersingham property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any alterations, RICS recommend you go for a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap however it will provide you with a thorough analysis of the Dersingham property's condition as well as an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

Other external areas of the property

In a Dersingham HomeBuyer Report what impact can a Condition rating 3 have on 'E9 - Other' ?

An example of this is rotation of beams in a conservatory roof. This category is used for external elements that require reporting which do not fit into the other categories.

RICS HomeBuyer Reports are transparent, detailed surveys of residential property. Colour coded ratings are used to communicate the severity of any defects or points of interest included in the report. Matters which require urgent action are highlighted with a 'red' or condition rating of 3. These can include dangers such as the suspected presence of asbestos, or extensive structural damage. Parts of the report which do not apply to the specific residence being surveyed will be indicated

with a 'NI', or 'not inspected'. If a residence does not have a porch or conservatory, for example, these aspects of the report will be omitted.

Timber damage by insect larvae

There may be pests at the home we're buying, but we are not certain. What should we do?

Buyers should know that is not a requirement that a seller report on an infestation. Regrettably, vermin can impact a home's worth and carry serious health risks. It is vital that buyers consider this oft-overlooked aspect when making an offer.

Signs may not be evident for weeks or months, for example, the smell of ammonia in or behind cupboards may indicate mice, even if no droppings are found. Treatment for bug or other pest issues may include chemical treatment. If you believe wasps, or any pest, may be present, request that your RICS surveyor pay close attention during the survey.

Building Surveys on houses

I don't understand the argument for getting a the full structural survey when investing in a un-loved semi detached bungalow in Dersingham as opposed to a HomeBuyer Report?

Although recurrently referred to as Structural Surveys buy agents and buyers alike, the correct term is now RICS Building Survey The HomeBuyer Report is appropriate if investigating a mid 20th century of later Dersingham home of normal construction materials and methods. The RICS Building Survey would be the most advisable survey to go for the house mentioned. There are a number limitations exist with a Building Survey because a RICS surveyor is not in a position to, unless safe to do so and with consent from the owner, open up the structure of the property for example, or investigate the internal state of any flues.
