HomeBuyer Report

Should I book a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a house in Rossington and which one is cheaper?

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

If the Rossington property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any an extension, RICS advise you carry out a Building Survey instead. This option is not as cheap but it does give you an in-depth analysis of the Rossington property's general condition as well as including advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

Shocking Electrics

When we were shown the period property we want to purchase, the agent said that there could be corrosion of the wiring - will the surveyor go into detail on electrical defects?

When performing a Rossington Homebuyer Report the RICS surveyor should usually make a note on the electrical system if it is suspected that the electrics are in an unsafe state of repair. A Chartered surveyor will also issues like verifying the condition of any fitted appliances e.g. water heaters or checking the condition of any visible wiring a representative sample of the range of light fittings and switch gear. Examining the evidence of a test on the condition of the electrical installations conducted by a suitably qualified electrician will usually form part of the Homebuyer report in Rossington.

The IEE suggest a Periodic Inspection be completed at least every 10 years (5 if renting out).

Deteriorated timber

On a HomeBuyer Report carried out in Rossington, what are common defects Condition rating 3 impacting joinery and finishes?

RICS created the HomeBuyer Report to give property buyers a clear and easy to read report on the condition of the home they plan to buy. As buyers in Rossington are unlikely to be experts in local building techniques and materials themselves, the report is written with as little jargon as possible. The surveyor uses a scale between 1 and 3 to show the severity of any defects or points of interest included in the report. Matters which require urgent action are highlighted with a 'red' or condition rating of 3. Such issues can have a significant impact on a Rossington home's value. Some areas may be marked as 'Not inspected'. Irrespective of standardised format of the report, your surveyor will provide a bespoke report, tailored to your particular concerns. Section E8 covers more decorative aspects of the property's exterior, inspected with the aid of binoculars where appropriate. Both bargeboards, and general verge details, are reported on. Bulging stucco render is an example.

Building Surveys on houses

I don't understand the argument for getting a full structural survey when considering a converted end of terrace cottage in Rossington instead of a HomeBuyer Report?

Commonly still described as a Structural Survey by many home buyers, this survey is now defunct and as it has been re-titled by RICS and the right term is now the Building Survey.

The HomeBuyer Report is detailed enough if buying a post 1950s Rossington house of conventional building materials. A Building Survey is definitely the proper type of survey in relation to the house described. Two to three days after a thorough inspection of all accessible areas, the surveyor's formal report is dispatched to the prospective buyer setting out any crucial professional advice about the materials used for the construction of the building. There are several limitations with the survey insofar as the surveyor cannot open up the fabric of the of the Rossington house e.g. removing the contents of cupboards.
