HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to get a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a house in Kingstanding and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey and is basically the same the same survey.

If the Kingstanding property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out major works, RICS recommend you go for a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap but it will give exhaustive analysis of the Kingstanding property's state of repair as well as including more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

Timber damage by insect larvae

We are buying a building in Kingstanding but are worried about vermin - Is a Full Structural Survey advisable?

Be aware that your solicitor's forms may not ask about this issue. It may not be obvious that a property is suffering a severe pest problem, as evidence can be overlooked, for example, carpet beetle larvae, or 'woolly bears' may be recognised by distinctive round bite marks along seams of clothing. Able to survive months without food, there may initially be no obvious evidence of their presence. Remedies to insect infestation can include destruction of tainted materials.

Conservatory

For a HomeBuyer Report on a Kingstanding house what can 'E7' refer to?

This section covers conservatories and porches. Any signs of inappropriate use, such as using a conservatory as a bedroom or kitchen will also be mentioned in the report. A missing step up into a house is one example. RICS HomeBuyer Reports are transparent, detailed surveys of residential property. As buyers in Kingstanding are unlikely to be experts in local building techniques and materials themselves, the report is written with as little jargon as possible. The report employs 'traffic light' ratings of red, amber and green the severity of any defects or points of interest included in the report. Some areas may be marked as 'Not inspected'. 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.

Building Surveys on houses

Do we need to have the full structural survey if purchasing a derelict regency townhouse in Kingstanding as opposed to a HomeBuyer Report?

Very Often called a Full Structural Survey by many, this survey is now defunct and as it has been given a new name by RICS and the right name is now the Building Survey. This is the most appropriate survey to choose if buying an altered house e.g. a property in poor condition Kingstanding house. This type of survey can give in depth and crucial insight in relation to the buildings construction and uses as well as any technical details after a thorough visual inspection of the inside and outside of the main building.
