HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to opt for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a property in Rickmansworth and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same comprehensive survey.

If the Rickmansworth property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make major works, you should you commission a Building Survey. This option is less cheap, but it does offer comprehensive details of the Rickmansworth property's condition and it includes more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Building Surveys on houses

I don't quite see the reason to opt for the full structural survey if buying a defective end of terrace cottage in Rickmansworth as an alternative to a HomeBuyer Report?

Albeit now often referred to as Full Structural Surveys they have been reclassified as Building Surveys If planning to buy an altered Rickmansworth home such as a tatty house - this is the most suitable survey. The written report summarises in depth and relevant advice on the homes construction and uses along with any technical details, following a thorough visual inspection of any accessible parts.

There are certain provisos with any survey as a qualified surveyor wont be able to (unless safe to do so) open up the fabric of the of the Rickmansworth house e.g. undoing electrical fittings.

Damage resulting from flooding

We are buying a ground floor apartment in Rickmansworth, does the home surveyor investigate indications of flood damage?

Flooding has blighted the lives of thousands of residents in Rickmansworth and across the country, and house purchasers and owners are understandably concerned.
