Which Property Survey should you choose?

  • Property suitable for a Building Survey

    The RICS Building Survey (previously called a Full Structural Survey in Fleet) will also be carried out by a MRICS or FRICS chartered surveyor but is more exhaustive. Opt for this when buying a non standard e.g. timber wall or older homes.

  • Surveyor carrying out a Property Valuation

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to select a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a house in Fleet and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, although it is basically the same the same.

If the Fleet property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any an extension, it would be better that you choose a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap however it does give you an in-depth analysis of the Fleet property's condition in addition to more detailed advice on defects , repairs as well as maintenance options .

If in doubt get a Fleet Survey Quote or call us 0800 038 6667 to speak to our survey team.

Traditionally built property

My partner and I are purchasing an older converted cow-house in Fleet. Will the home's age be an issue?

Older construction methods and materials can sometimes be an issue, and Properties built with traditional methods can be a drain to maintain. It is often the case that specialist knowledge is necessary. Especially for Fleet listed buildings, Materials suitable for the work may be required. Contact your chartered surveyor for further advice.

Overgrown flat roof with weeds

For the Fleet HomeBuyer Report, what effect can a Condition Rating 1 have on roof coverings?

RICS created the HomeBuyer Report to give house purchasers a clear and easy to read report on the condition of the home they plan to buy. As buyers in Fleet are unlikely to be experts in local building techniques and materials themselves, the report is written with as little jargon as possible. A 'traffic light' system of colour coding is used to confirm the impact on the property individual defects may have. A rating of 1 is the highest, meaning that this aspect of the Fleet residence being surveyed does not need urgent attention, but regular upkeep may still be required. In some cases, an element covered under Section E may be marked as NI, or 'Not inspected'. If a home does not have a porch or conservatory, for example, these aspects of the report will be omitted. Flat and sloping roofs will be reviewed, provided that access is possible. Damage, punctures or tears to the roof covering is an example of a Section E defect.
