HomeBuyer Report

Should I get a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a home in Shanklin and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, although it is effectively the same survey.

If the Shanklin property is a flat or maisonette, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction, RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out any major works, you should you choose a Building Survey instead. This survey is not as cheap however it does give an in-depth analysis of the Shanklin property's condition as well as including an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

Other external areas of the property

On a HomeBuyer Report carried out in Shanklin, what effect can a an red light rating have on factors covered in Section E?

The home buyer report is intended to be easy to read and understand. As buyers in Shanklin are unlikely to be experts in local building techniques and materials themselves, the report is written with as little jargon as possible. Colour coded ratings are used to communicate the severity of defects uncovered during the survey. Red, or condition rating three, indicates particularly concerning issues. These issues could risk the health and safety of residents. Parts of the report which do not apply to the specific residence being surveyed will be indicated with a 'NI', or 'not inspected'. Irrespective of standardised format of the report, your surveyor will provide a bespoke report, tailored to your particular concerns. One example would

be fastener problems. Miscellaneous external elements are including here that do not sit comfortably elsewhere in section E. Contact your surveyor if you require more information.

Stone block wall damage

I am purchasing a conversion and the owner has stated that it has been constructed with Doulting stone. Which matters should we consider, and will the surveyor offer any advice?
