HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to get a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a property in Kenilworth and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, although it is effectively the same comprehensive survey.

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

If you are thinking about whether to do any works or an extension, RICS advise you choose a Building Survey. This option is less cheap however it will offer a thorough analysis of the Kenilworth property's general condition along with advice on structural defects , repairs and maintenance options .

Defective door frame

On the HomeBuyer Report what effect can a Condition rating 2 have on 'E6 - Outside doors' ?

External doors are checked where keys are available, but not forced open. In general, the security offer by these doors will be reported on. Deformation of the door or frame is an example.

Condition rating 2 suggests that the aspect of the property in question will need some work. The condition of this particular aspect of the property is unlikely to require urgent work, however. Parts of the report which do not apply to the specific property being surveyed will be indicated with a 'NI', or 'not inspected'. Irrelevant subsections of the HomeBuyer Report, like an assessment of a conservatory where the home in question does not have one, are disregarded.

Building Surveys on maisonettes

Should I order a full structural survey prior to purchasing a shabby forties live-work maisonette in Kenilworth?

Structural surveys have a new name and are now entitled Building Surveys. When contemplating the buying of a modified maisonette such as a period Kenilworth maisonette - this is the correct survey to get. After a thorough visual inspection of the inside and outside of the main building, the RICS surveyors report will be supplied to the prospective buyer giving any crucial information in relation to the standard of construction and repair of the house. There are several limitations with the survey because a RICS surveyor will not be able to, unless safe to do so and with consent from the owner, open up the fabric of the of the Kenilworth maisonette for example removing secured panels.

Damage caused by high rainfall

How will we know what effect should wet weather have on our new building? Will the HomeBuyer Report give details on this? Could damaged gutters lower the property value?

Rainfall is a fact of life in the UK, however, rain and the effect it can have on homes in Kenilworth are ignored. If you have only seen the new home in good weather, problems are unlikely to be visible. Blocked rainwater goods can result in rotten roof timbers.

These issues are, generally speaking, straightforward to fix. Where this is untreated or poorly maintained, the damage becomes increasing costly to remedy.
