Which Property Survey should you select?

  • House suitable for a HomeBuyer Report

    Homebuyer Report in Lunt

    The RICS Homebuyer Report should be selected if purchasing a home constructed from conventional building materials such as tile and brick, not dilapidated and less than 100 years old.

  • Property suitable for a Building Survey

    Building Survey in Lunt

    The RICS Building Survey (once known as a Full Structural Survey in Lunt) will also be conducted by a RICS qualified surveyor but is more thorough. Choose this when buying a non standard e.g. wychert houses.

  • Surveyor carrying out a Property Valuation

    Property Valuation Report in Lunt

    This is an impartial valuation of the property. This is often chosen by cash buyers or someone requiring a formal valuation e.g. a dispute.

HomeBuyer Report

Should we select a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a house in Lunt and which would be the cheapest?

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

If the Lunt property is a flat or maisonette, or is a period property, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any alterations, you should you opt for a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it will provide you with comprehensive details of the Lunt property's general condition in addition to information on defects and maintenance options .

Timber damage by insect larvae

We are concerned about insects. Will the HomeBuyer Report investigate this?

Any questions about pests affecting a Lunt house may not be asked by the lawyer. Regrettably, pests can seriously reduce the value of a property and put your health in danger. It may not be obvious that a house is suffering a severe pest problem, as evidence can be overlooked, silverfish are common in damp kitchens and bathrooms, but only appear at night, and can therefore be difficult to spot. Remedies to a serious infestation can include removal of infected furniture. If you strongly suspect an issue with moths, or any pest, speak to your chartered surveyor

Substandard guttering

On a Lunt HomeBuyer Report what are common defects an amber light rating impacting 'E3 - Rainwater pipes and gutters' ?

External areas covered by E3 are inspected visually. E3 does not cover internal parts of the water system, such as defects in the sewer system. Downspouts discharging onto the ground is an example of this.
