HomeBuyer Report

Should we select a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a house in Greenfield and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey, however it is basically the same the same.

If the Greenfield property is a flat or maisonette, or is a period property, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out any alterations on the property, it would be better that you commission a Building Survey instead. This more detailed survey is not as cheap however it will provide you with comprehensive details of the Greenfield property's general condition along with an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

Deteriorated timber

In a Greenfield HomeBuyer Report what does 'E8 - Other joinery and finishes' cover?

Quite a common example is improperly nailed or fitted hardboard and plywood. Section E8 covers more decorative aspects of the property's exterior, inspected with the aid of binoculars where appropriate The condition of decorations to all joinery elements will be investigated.

RICS HomeBuyer Reports are transparent, detailed surveys of residential property, and avoid potentially unfamiliar technical language. The report employs 'traffic light' ratings of red, amber and green how serious the issues which the surveyor has discovered actually are. Some areas may be marked as 'Not inspected'. Irrespective of standardised format of the report, your surveyor will provide a bespoke report, tailored to your particular concerns.

Building Surveys on houses

Are there any reasons to opt for the full structural survey in Greenfield rather than a HomeBuyer Report when looking into a converted end of terrace bungalow?

Albeit conventionally called Full Structural Surveys - they are no longer offered by Surveyors and are superseded by Building Surveys A HomeBuyer Report is all you really need if buying a post 1950s Greenfield property of conventional construction materials and methods. A Building Survey is definitely the advisable survey to choose for the house mentioned. Two to three days after a thorough inspection of the accessible parts a written report (digital and written copy) will be dispatched to the prospective purchaser specifying comprehensive and salient advice concerning the state of repair of the house. There will be certain provisos with any survey because your surveyor is not in a position to force or open up the fabric of the Greenfield building such as removing secured panels.

Shocking Electrics

When I visited the period property I am hoping to purchase I think we saw that there could be corrosion of the wiring - does a the Greenfield surveyor report on the wiring and electrical system?

When carrying out a Home Buyers Survey in Greenfield the home surveyor should usually mention the overall electrical system if it appears that the electrics are in an unsafe condition. A Surveyor is expected to possible problems relating to things like examining the condition of the fixed electrical appliances, for example water heaters. A check for the documentation from the most recent Periodic Inspection Report carried out by a suitably qualified electrician should be part of the survey.
