HomeBuyer Report

Should we go for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a property in Hopton and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same.

If the Hopton property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make any major works, it would be better that you carry out a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap, but it does provide you with a more detailed analysis of the Hopton property's state of repair and it includes information on defects as well as maintenance options .

Building Surveys on houses

I don't quite see the justification to opt for a full structural survey if purchasing a dilapidated end of terrace townhouse near Hopton over a HomeBuyer Report?

Albeit frequently still called Full Structural Surveys by many, they are now defunct and renamed Building Surveys It is the right choice of home survey when planning to buy an altered home e.g. an unloved house in Hopton. It summarises thorough and relevant professional advice on the houses condition and any defects, shortly after a thorough inspection of any accessible parts of the house.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

Can we get Monk bond guidelines for upkeep for the Georgian house we're purchasing?

Brick-built residences feature several advantages, but they will also be subject to diverse problems, from erosion to vertical cracking. Any such issues ought to be reported on and suggest potential remedies. A problem regularly identified is thermal movement, caused by more extreme temperature variation, and resulting in vertical cracks.

A good selection of methods and styles of brick building have been a feature of house construction in this country for 100s of years. Maintenance work may be more time-consuming and costly than you assume.

If the Hopton surveyor does raise concerns about a brick wall defect or structural issue, it may be wise to speak to a builder before completion to assess the extent and cost of the work.
