HomeBuyer Report

Should we go for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a home in Long Itchington and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey, however it is basically the same the same level of survey.

If the Long Itchington property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make any major works, it would be better that you go for a Building Survey. This option is less cheap, but it will give a more detailed analysis of the Long Itchington property's state of repair and it includes an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

Roof defects identified during a survey

We are buying a loft-conversion in Long Itchington, and we are sensitive to the cost of roof repairs. What does a Long Itchington building surveyor investigate during the survey?

This is frequently addressed by surveyors in Long Itchington. Houses across Long Itchington can be blighted by damage to the roof, including. From parapet walls to purlins, the whole roof should be investigated. The surveyors in Long Itchington could suggest that some of the faults must be dealt with immediately.

In the past, roof maintenance would be carried out with just ladders and 'crawler boards'. This practice is terribly unsafe, and contractors today will insist that scaffolding be used. It may be advisable to source an estimate for any work prior to exchange.

Building Surveys on houses

I don't understand the argument of carrying out a full structural survey if buying a defective semi detached property in Long Itchington as opposed to a HomeBuyer Report?

Conventionally called a Structural Survey by some, it is now defunct and as it has been superseded by RICS and the proper name is now the Building Survey. A HomeBuyer Report is all you really need if buying a post 1950s Long Itchington house assembled from normal construction materials. The Building Survey is certainly the appropriate choice in relation to the house described. Around 3 days following a thorough site survey of all accessible areas, the chartered surveyors report will be sent to the client running through comprehensive and relevant advice in relation to the construction materials used on the house. Be aware that some limitations are integral with a property survey as a Long Itchington surveyor will not be able to force or open up the fabric of the property for example, or inspect under floor (unless accessible).

Substandard guttering

In a Long Itchington HomeBuyer Report what can 'E3' include?

An example of this is poor quality or inefficient downspouts. The drainage system is inspected visually. Buyers should be aware that although drainage is reported on in this section, other aspects of the water system are referred to elsewhere possible defects such as blockages in sewer pipes. The RICS HomeBuyer Report is designed to be user-friendly. Red, amber and green ratings give property purchasers indicate 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 property purchasers. As a result, some sections are omitted where they do not apply to the surveyed property.
