HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to choose a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a home in Hollywood and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same survey.

If the Hollywood property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any alterations, RICS advise you carry out a Building Survey instead. This more detailed survey is not as cheap however it does give you exhaustive analysis of the Hollywood property's condition and it includes information on defects as well as maintenance options .

Damage caused by high rainfall

What impact will wet weather have on a Hollywood building? Are repairs going to be expensive?

Climate change is regularly in the news. However wet weather and the effect it can have on homes are not given more thought. As an example, rotten wooden gutters indicate that the downspouts are at risk.

Whether buying in Hollywood or elsewhere, difficult downspouts does not necessarily mean that you need to pull out. Such matters are often simple to resolve for a reasonable cost.However, the damage caused, where not maintained, will be expense to remedy and resulting damp and mould could become a health risk.

Timber damage by insect larvae

My husband spotted signs of pests in the hallway. What advice should we get?

Hollywood purchasers should be aware that there is no legal obligation for the vendor to mention a pest issue. Unfortunately, the impact to a house and its inhabitants can carry serious health risks and affect its value. An affected house may not always be easy to identify. As an example, sliverfish (lepisma saccharina), are rarely visible during the day. They will digest paper and wallpaper paste, but are more a symptom of damp than a serious problem themselves. Treatment for vermin may include professional cleaning or 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.

Damage resulting from flooding

Does a Hollywood RICS surveyor check for indications of flooding?

Heavy rain, clogged drains and overflowing streams can cause floods, and owning a residential property in or near a high-risk area can mean higher insurance premiums. A surveyor has a number of options to assess whether a property is vulnerable. The property survey may also, where appropriate, make recommendations for repair work or improved flood protection.Section J of the survey report contains details, where applicable, of flooding risks found within the boundaries of the house in Hollywood or on adjacent sites. The Environment Agency also publish details of previous flood warnings.
