Which Building Survey should you choose?

  • House suitable for a HomeBuyer Report

    Homebuyer Report in Liverpool

    A Homebuyer Report is the best choice if buying a home built from conventional materials i.e. brick & tile, not dilapidated and less than 100 years old.

  • Property suitable for a Building Survey

    Building Survey in Liverpool

    The RICS Building Survey (often referred to as a Full Structural Survey in Liverpool) will also be carried out by a MRICS or FRICS chartered surveyor but is more comprehensive. Opt for this for unconventional , for example timber frame properties.

  • Surveyor carrying out a Property Valuation

    Property Valuation Report in Liverpool

    This is an independent valuation . It is often chosen by mortgage free purchasers or someone requiring a formal valuation e.g. for probate.

HomeBuyer Report

Should we get a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a home in Liverpool and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey but is essentially the same.

If the Liverpool property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out any major works, it would be better that you choose a Building Survey instead. This survey is not as cheap but it will give a more detailed analysis of the Liverpool property's general condition in addition to advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Defective door frame

On a Liverpool HomeBuyer Report what can 'E6 - Outside doors' include?

One example would be blocked drainage holes. Outside doors are to be opened and closed if keys are present, but they cannot otherwise be forced open. Broadly speaking, the type and condition of the property's windows are included in the report. The RICS HomeBuyer Report is designed to be user-friendly, unlike some more complex survey reports. The report uses colour coded condition ratings to give house purchasers a clear 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 house or flat. RICS have mandated a specific format for the HomeBuyer Report to aid the creation of a useful and comprehensive report for both surveyors and home buyers. As a result, some sections may not be relevant to every property, such as reporting on the condition of the roof of a ground floor flat.
