HomeBuyer Report

Should I select a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a house in Roehampton and of the 3, which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey, however it is basically the same the same.

If the Roehampton property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any substantial modifications, it would be better that you choose a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap but it does offer an in-depth analysis of the Roehampton property's condition as well as including more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

Traditionally built property

I am purchasing a 15th Century farmhouse in Roehampton. What consequences will the age have on upkeep?

Many buyers would be interested in owning a home with character, such as a barn conversion. A building's age, however, can worry purchasers, and Properties constructed with traditional methods can be a drain to repair. You should be aware that specialist expertise may be needed. Construction materials, such as locally-quarried stone, may also need to be sourced, particularly in the case of listed property.

External walls

On a Roehampton HomeBuyer Report, what effect will a Condition Rating 1 have on main walls?

The format of the RICS HomeBuyer Report is clear and easy to read, unlike some more complex survey reports. The report employs 'traffic light' ratings of red, amber and green how concerning each aspect of the report is. Condition rating one indicates that no repairs are necessary. Elements of Section E marked as condition rating 1 may however still require regular maintenance. Not inspected' is used to indicate those subsections of Section E which do not apply to the residence. Where the surveyor is unable to gain access to some areas, e.g. the roof of a block of flats, these aspects of the report will not be completed.

Foundations and possible defects within the walls will not be investigated. Damp proofing, including the DPC, is also included here. A leaning or rotating lintel is one defect applicable to this section.

Roof defects identified during a survey

I am going to put in an offer in on a structure in Roehampton - What aspects of the structure's roof will be considered?

Questions like this are often asked of property surveyors by Roehampton home buyers who are aware that property can, to the disappointment of their would-be owners, still suffer issues with the roof. From the fascias to the collar ties, the status of the whole roof should be reviewed. Factors like being literally flat, as opposed to on a small incline so that water can drain correctly are particularly troublesome for flat roofed property.

Roof upkeep need not always be costly, but they should be budgeted for carefully. A building survey prior to exchange is highly recommended, so that you fully understand what expenses you will be facing. Once the surveyor has delivered their report, consider arranging a quote from a Roehampton builder for the job itself.
