HomeBuyer Report

Should we get a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a property in Frodsham and which one would be cheaper?

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

If the Frodsham property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make significant alterations, RICS advise you choose a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap but it does give an in-depth analysis of the Frodsham property's state of repair in addition to advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

Defective door frame

In a Frodsham HomeBuyer Report, what could a Condition Rating 1 mean for outside doors?

A 'green' condition rating of 1 confirms that no repairs are required. This rating does not, however, mean that no future maintenance is required. Regular upkeep may still be appropriate or even necessary. The RICS HomeBuyer Report is designed to be user-friendly, and avoid potentially unfamiliar technical language. A 'traffic light' system of colour coding is used to confirm the severity of any defects or points of interest included in the report. Outside doors are to be opened and closed where keys are available, but not forced open. In general, the seal condition of double glazing is covered. Draughts around outside doors is an example.

Timber damage by insect larvae

We are buying in Frodsham, and think we saw signs of vermin in the bedroom. Will a residential surveyor look into this?

Infestations can range from the mild and harmless, to the seriously harmful. Regrettably, pest problems can be costly to fix and affect the health of residents. It may not be obvious that a building is suffering a severe pest problem, as evidence can be overlooked. For example, cluster, or swarming flies, are often found in lofts and can be a serious, seasonal annoyance if not treated. Treatment for pests may include removal or excision of affected timber. As awareness of less common problems grows, more surveys should identify these and advise on remedies. Contact a specialist, e.g. NBC Bird & Pest Solutions (Manchester & Stockport), 7 Warren Road, Appleton, Warrington, WA4 5AG, or call 0800 169 9646, to discuss remedial options.

Building Surveys on apartments

Should we spend a bit more on full structural survey prior to buying an extended, sixties duplex apartment close to Frodsham?

Structural surveys are now known as the Building Surveys. The HomeBuyer Report will suffice for a post fifties unmodified Frodsham apartment built out of conventional construction materials. A RICS Building Survey is certainly the proper choice for the apartment described. Two to three days after the surveyor has carried out a thorough site survey of the accessible parts of the house, a written report is sent to the prospective purchaser specifying any important advice about the construction materials used on the house. Be aware that one or two limitations are integral with the survey as a qualified surveyor is not authorised force or open up the fabric of the apartment or advise whether drainage meets appropriate regulations.
