Which Home Survey is the right choice?

  • House suitable for a HomeBuyer Report

    Homebuyer Report in Shropshire

    The Homebuyer Report is the best choice when you are purchasing a property built from standard building materials i.e. tile & brick, not dilapidated and not over 100 years in age.

  • Property suitable for a Building Survey

    Building Survey in Shropshire

    The Building Survey (which used to be called a Full Structural Survey in Shropshire) will also be conducted by a RICS chartered surveyor and is more comprehensive. Choose this for unconventional e.g. timber wall or older houses.

  • Surveyor carrying out a Property Valuation

    Property Valuation Report in Shropshire

    This is an impartial valuation . This is chosen by cash buyers or someone needing a formal valuation e.g. matrimonial dispute.

HomeBuyer Report

Should I go for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a house in Shropshire and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey but is essentially the same.

If the Shropshire property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any significant alterations, RICS advise you select a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it does provide you with a thorough analysis of the Shropshire property's general condition as well as advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Timber damage by insect larvae

I am worried about an infestation in the property in Shropshire we plan to buy. Will the HomeBuyer Report investigate this?

Buyers in Shropshire should know that is not a requirement that a seller report on an infestation.

Unfortunately, the threat posed by these to property is very real, and can seriously reduce the value of a property. Evidence may not be easy to find. For example, damage to stored clothes or carpets is a sign

of a moth infestation, but may not be spotted for months. Remedies to an infestation can include removal or excision of affected timber. Rather than pulling out, it may be possible to agree a reduction in the purchase price to cover the cost of remedy.

Gas flame

Does a RICS chartered surveyor look at the safety of the gas installations?

A surveyor will locate and visually inspect any accessible parts of the gas system. A surveyor will want to inspect the meter location/position as part of the Shropshire survey, in addition to gas connected installations such as chimney breasts or flues. Gas fittings will not however be undone. Most people are aware that gas is potentially hazardous, if you have any concerns relating to gas installations, call a gas engineer.

Overgrown flat roof with weeds

In the HomeBuyer Report what can 'E2 - Roof coverings' cover?

As part of Section E2, these elements are comprehensively checked, if these parts of the property are easy to view or easy to access. If it is not possible to properly access this area for inspection (if, for example, the property is a flat), the surveyor will make note of this in their report. Signs of ridging or fishmouths, for example, would be reported here. RICS created the HomeBuyer Report to give property purchasers a clear and easy to read report on the condition of the home they plan to buy. Colour coded ratings are used to communicate to what extent each defect requires attention.
