HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to have a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a house in Slade Green and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey but is effectively the same level of survey.

If the Slade Green property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any alterations, RICS advise you book a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap but it will give a thorough analysis of the Slade Green property's general condition as well as including an opinion on defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

Timber damage by insect larvae

There may be bugs at the Slade Green home we're buying, but we are not certain - Should we get a surveyor?

Properties are not usually impacted by serious cases of vermin, but buying without any professional advice on the issue is not recommended. This concern should be taken seriously. An affected building may not always be easy to identify, for example, a moth infestation may not be found for months after purchase, and even if treated, may never be fully eradicated. Remedies to bug or other pest issues can include use of poison or removal or excision of affected timber.RICS guidelines on the issue of vermin are something of a 'grey-area', so specific fears should be mentioned to your Slade Green surveyor.

Building Surveys on apartments

Is it worth paying a higher price for a full structural survey when buying an apartment ?

Building Survey has now superseded the Full Structural Survey following its new title in 2010 by RICS. A HomeBuyer Report is appropriate for a 60 year old or less Slade Green apartment made out of typical construction materials and methods i.e. brick walls and tiled roof. A RICS Building Survey is the right survey for the apartment described. Approximately 3 days after an exhaustive inspection of the accessible parts a written report (digital and written copy) will be emailed (pdf format) and posted to the purchaser providing any frequently critical information on the construction materials used on the property.

There are certain limitations exist with the survey as a local surveyor cannot force or open up the fabric of the Slade Green apartment for example, or investigate the internal state of any flues.

Damage caused by high rainfall

What effect may wet weather have on a home? Where there is work that needs to be done, what should we do?

Climate change is regularly in the news. However the effect which damp weather has on buildings in Slade Green is often overlooked. If you have investigated the residence in dry conditions, obvious defects may be harder to find. If you suspect a problem, consider asking the surveyor for more information.

Luckily, guttering issues are usually easy to repair. If disregarded, the resulting damage can lower the value of the property and will get increasingly difficult to successfully resolve.
