HomeBuyer Report

Should I book a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a property in Hurst and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey and is essentially the same level of survey.

If the Hurst property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any major works on the Hurst property, it would be better that you commission a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap, however it does provide you with a thorough analysis of the Hurst property's state of repair and it includes more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Other external areas of the property

In the HomeBuyer Report, what will 'E9 - Other' include?

The home buyer report is intended to be easy to read and understand. As buyers in Hurst are unlikely to be experts in local building techniques and materials themselves, the report is written with as little jargon as possible. Three colour coded ratings give an understanding of the impact on the property individual defects may have. Not inspected' is used to indicate those subsections of Section E which do not apply to the residence. The structured format for the HomeBuyer Report is intended to produce a useful and comprehensive survey for any home purchasers. As a result, some sections are omitted where they do not apply to the surveyed property.

This category is used for external elements that require reporting which do not fit into the other categories. Your surveyor can provide more details if required. Contact between the conservatory skirting and the soil is an example of a Section E defect.

Roof defects identified during a survey

A neighbour said that the had been a problem with amateur repairs - Which issues relating to the roof of the house will be reported on?

This is frequently addressed by house surveyors. Many homes can, to the disappointment of their would-be owners, still suffer roofing woes. From clay tiles to ridge flashing, all aspects of the roof must be reviewed. Problems can often arise in the case of flat roofs, caused by being literally flat, as opposed to on a small incline so that water can drain correctly.

It may be inconvenient to employ scaffolding to perform repairs, especially in the busy parts of Hurst, but it is a health and safety necessity. Prior to exchange, it may be worth sourcing from a Hurst roofing specialist a quote for any suggested work. Speak to Hambleton D of 106 Ashridge Rd, Wokingham, RG40 1PH on 0118-979 2766 for an estimate.
