HomeBuyer Report

Should we choose a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a house in Kirkdale and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey but is effectively the same level of survey.

If the Kirkdale property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make alterations, RICS advise you book a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap, however it does offer a thorough analysis of the Kirkdale property's condition and it includes information on defects and maintenance options .

Building Surveys on maisonettes

Is it worth paying a bit more money for a full structural survey when buying a maisonette in Kirkdale?

Building Survey has now superseded the Structural Survey following its reclassification a couple of years ago by RICS. Commission the Building Survey for this house. The HomeBuyer Report has enough detail if investigating a post fifties unmodified maisonette assembled from standard construction materials. .

Overgrown flat roof with weeds

For a HomeBuyer Report on a Kirkdale property, can you give some examples of an amber light rating defects impacting roof coverings?

RICS created the HomeBuyer Report to give home buyers a clear and easy to read report on the condition of the home they plan to buy, unlike some more complex survey reports. Your property surveyor will mark each aspect of the property included in Section E with either a green, orange or red rating, to indicate the severity of defects uncovered during the survey. Amber, or condition rating 2, defects will need to be repaired or replaced at some point, but they are not considered to be urgent or serious. They may also require frequent upkeep. 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 buyers. As a result, some sections are omitted where they do not apply to the surveyed property. As part of Section E, E2 reports on flat and sloped roof issues. These will be checked by the surveyor, provided that access is possible. If access cannot be arranged, e.g. the property is a flat, the surveyor will be unable to include this in the report. A leaking EPDM roof, for example, is included in Section E.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

I am looking for brick chimney upkeep suggestions - can a Kirkdale property surveyor assist?

Brick structures in Kirkdale will suffer from a number of issues. This could be anything from cracks to frost damaged pointing. For instance, brick rot, resulting from decades of exposure to condensation or damp at ground level and should be taken very seriously. Bish J should be able to provide an estimate for repair work. Contact them at 2 Church La, Southwick, Brighton, BN42 4GD or 01273 597232.

E.g. running, or stretcher, bond. Consider the advice of both the surveyor and a builder or other specialist if potential structural defects arise during the survey.
