HomeBuyer Report

Should I have a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a house in Frant and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same comprehensive survey.

If the Frant property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out major works, RICS advise you choose a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap, but it does give a thorough analysis of the Frant property's state of repair along with an opinion on defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

Deteriorated timber

In the HomeBuyer Report what are the usual a green light rating defects affecting 'E8 - Other joinery and finishes' ?

This section includes visual aspects of the roof, checked with the aid of binoculars where appropriate The condition of decorations to all joinery elements will be investigated. Discoloured metal or vinyl sidings, for example, would be reported here.

RICS HomeBuyer Reports are transparent, detailed surveys of residential property, with a minimum of technical jargon. Colour coded ratings are used to communicate the severity of defects uncovered during the survey. Green (condition rating 1) is the best possible assessment, and confirms that this part of

the home is in a good state. Elements of Section E marked as condition rating 1 may however still require regular maintenance.

Building Surveys on houses

Are there any advantages for having the full structural survey in Frant instead of a HomeBuyer Report if purchasing a un-loved home?

Albeit conventionally and incorrectly called Structural Surveys by some, these comprehensive surveys are now entitled Building Surveys Our advice would be to get a RICS Building Survey for the house you are considering. A HomeBuyer Report is enough for a mid 20th century of later unmodified house made out of standard construction materials and methods i.e. brick walls and tiled roof. There are some limitations exist with any survey as RICS chartered surveyor cannot force or open up the structure of the house for example, or comment on non-permanent out buildings.

Timber damage by insect larvae

My partner spotted signs of vermin in the bedrooms - Is a Home Buyers Survey advisable?

Frant purchasers should know that is not a requirement that the vendor to mention a pest issue. This matter should be taken seriously. An affected home may not always be easy to identify. As an example, cockroaches are nocturnal, and challenging to eradicate. Species common to the UK, such as the German Cockroach, are small, and breed rapidly in moist conditions. This makes them both hard to spot, and to treat successfully. Remedies to an infestation can include destruction of tainted materials. If investigation does uncover a problem, consider speaking to the seller to ask that they deal with the issue prior to exchange.
