HomeBuyer Report

Should I book a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a home in Red Lodge and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey, however it is basically the same the same comprehensive survey.

If the Red Lodge property is a flat or maisonette, or is a period property, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any alterations on the Red Lodge property, RICS recommend you choose a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap but it will give you a thorough analysis of the Red Lodge property's general condition in addition to advice on defects , repairs and maintenance options .

Building Surveys on houses

Can you please explain the argument to upgrade to the full structural survey when considering a abandoned semi detached cottage near Red Lodge over a HomeBuyer Report?

Sometimes described as a Full Structural Survey by house buyers, this survey is no longer offered and has been re-titled by RICS and the correct term is now the Building Survey. Commission a Building Survey for the house described. The HomeBuyer Report is appropriate if buying a post fifties Red Lodge property assembled from conventional building materials. Bear in mind that

some caveats exist with any survey as your local Red Lodge surveyor wont be able to open up the structure of the property or comment on non-permanent out buildings.

Shocking Electrics

When I visited the building I am intending to lease it appeared that there were damaged electrical sockets - does a Red Lodge Homebuyer Report write anything on the wiring and electrical system?

When carrying out a Red Lodge Building Survey the surveyor will report on the electrical system if it is apparent that the electrics are in a poor condition. A professional surveyor is trained to provide detail on potential areas for concern such as verifying the condition of any visible wiring a representative sample of switch gear. Verifying the location of the evidence of a test on the condition of the electrical connections conducted by an electrician will usually form part of the survey in Red Lodge.

Damage caused by high rainfall

Is wet weather an issue in Red Lodge? Also, if there is necessary work, will they be a hassle to fix?

The impact of climate change is widely reported, yet wet weather and the effect it can have on a home are often overlooked by purchasers. One indication that gutters are at risk is streaks of dirt down the outside of guttering. That is not to say that drainage problems should cause you to reconsider a purchase. They are usually a simple matter to fix, unless they are not cared for. The damage will steadily get harder to remedy, so do not be tempted to ignore the signs.
