HomeBuyer Report

Should I book a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a house in Fawley and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, however it is basically the same the same level of survey.

If the Fawley property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make significant alterations, RICS recommend you choose a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap but it does provide you with comprehensive details of the Fawley property's condition in addition to an opinion on defects , repairs as well as maintenance options .

Traditionally built property

We are buying a converted cow-house. What effect will the building's age have on upkeep?

A property's age can often be problematic, and Fawley houses showcasing traditional methods can be challenging to upkeep. You should consider that specialist knowledge may be needed, and it could also be necessary to find Traditional building materials, which could make asking the seller for more detail about their current maintenance regime a good idea.

Damage caused by high rainfall

What impact may wet weather have on a Fawley building, and does our Fawley property surveyor mention it? Also, if there are issues, will they be expensive to fix?

Rainfall is a fact of life in the UK, however, heavy rainfall and the effect it can have on property in Fawley are ignored. As an example, rotten roofing elements could mean that the drainage systems are a cause for concern. This could then result in water damage.

These issues are, generally speaking, straightforward to repair fairly cheaply. Where this is disregarded, the damage becomes increasing costly to remedy.

Building Surveys on maisonettes

Is it worth paying more for a full structural survey, instead of a Homebuyer Report on a maisonette in Fawley?

The Building Survey has taken over the Structural Survey following its reclassification in 2010 by RICS. The HomeBuyer Report is detailed enough if investigating a post fifties unmodified maisonette of normal building materials. The Building Survey would be the most appropriate selection for the maisonette mentioned. Usually within 2 to 3 days after a thorough inspection of the inside and outside of the main building and permanent outbuildings, a formal written report will be posted and emailed to the prospective buyer specifying thorough and important professional advice concerning the construction materials used on the house. There will be certain no go areas with a property survey as a qualified RICS surveyor is not able to force or open up the fabric of the Fawley building for example removing the contents of cupboards. This page for more info the differences between surveys.
