HomeBuyer Report

Should we go for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a property in Formby and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, although it is basically the same the same.

If the Formby property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any an extension, RICS recommend you book a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap but it does give exhaustive analysis of the Formby property's state of repair and it includes an opinion on defects , repairs as well as maintenance options .

Window frame

On the HomeBuyer Report what does 'E5' cover?

Where practicable, all windows are to be opened and closed, but not forced open, and vulnerable areas closely examined. The surveyor should make notes and advise the client whether it is possible to operate the window transoms/openings satisfactorily. An inadequate weatherstrip on a window is an example of a Section E defect.

RICS HomeBuyer Reports are transparent, detailed surveys of residential property. The report uses colour coded condition

ratings to give purchasers a clear understanding of the severity of defects uncovered during the survey.

Timber damage by insect larvae

A local warned us about pests affecting some homes - What should we do?

Property are not usually impacted by serious cases of pest problems, but buying without any professional advice on the issue is not recommended. Pests quite literally come in all shapes and sizes, and can be more difficult to treat than many buyers realise. Evidence may not be easy to find, bed bugs do not live in mattresses, as in commonly thought, but in cracks in the bed frame, or around the room, and will feed on the host at night. Remedies can take time, so if you opt to proceed with the purchase, check with a specialist how long treatment will take. If investigation does uncover a problem, consider speaking to the seller to ask that they deal with the issue prior to exchange.
