HomeBuyer Report

Should I select a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a property in Goodrich and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey, however it is essentially the same level of survey.

If the Goodrich property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out any major works, RICS advise you select a Building Survey instead. This option is not as cheap, but it will give you an in-depth analysis of the Goodrich property's condition as well as including an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

Overgrown flat roof with weeds

On a HomeBuyer Report carried out in Goodrich what are common an red light rating defects for 'E2 - Roof coverings' ?

Flat and sloping roofs will be reviewed, if these parts of the property are easy to view or easy to access. If it is not possible to properly access this area for inspection (if, for example, the property is a flat), the surveyor will make note of this in their report. A torn or punctured asphalt roof is an example of this.

A condition rating of three is used to emphasise the most crucial repairs. Defects marked in red may also need further inspection by an expert.

Shocking Electrics

When we went to see a property we expect to move into it appeared that there is old wiring - does a Homebuyer Report in Goodrich write anything on electrical defects?

When preparing a Home Survey in Goodrich the home surveyor will remark on the state of the electrics if it is suspected that the electrics are in a less than satisfactory state of repair.

This should include a visual check of any uncovered sections of the wiring or fusebox as well as other things, for example verifying the condition of any fitted appliances e.g. water heaters. Inspecting the documentation from a test on the condition of the electrical connections conducted by an electrician will form part of the survey in Goodrich. Reporting on any documentation from the most recent Periodic Inspection Report carried out by an electrician on the building should form part of the survey.

House Prices

I would like to acquire a property in Goodrich. What things does a Goodrich surveyor allow for when conducting a RICS survey ?
