HomeBuyer Report

Should I get a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a house in South Brent and which would be the cheapest?

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

If the South Brent property is an apartment, or is a period property, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials, then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make alterations, RICS recommend you go for a Building Survey. This option is less cheap but it does provide you with a more detailed analysis of the South Brent property's state of repair as well as advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

Building Surveys on maisonettes

Should I go for a full structural survey prior to acquiring a converted, thirties purpose built maisonette in South Brent?

The Building Survey has now superseded the Structural Survey following its reclassification recently by RICS. If you are planning to buy a modified South Brent maisonette like a tatty maisonette - this is the most suitable survey to choose. The survey will outline

in depth and important advice in relation to the homes standard of construction and repair as well as any technical details after a thorough visual inspection of the inside and outside of the main building and permanent outbuildings. Out buildings and boundary walls should be surveyed.

Damage resulting from flooding

Does a building survey search for water damage, or if other properties have been affected?

It is estimated that over two million properties are in danger of flooding damage; sensible owners and house buyers in South Brent are right to consider precautions.

As with many aspects of home ownership, flood prevention is better (and cheaper) than a cure, and a property surveyor will advise on repairs or preventative measures. Details relating to signs of flooding may be reported in Section J of the HomeBuyer Report. The building surveyor may ask the vendor or agent about historical floods, although the result of these enquires should be treated as a guide only.

Traditionally built property

We are buying a property. Will repairs costs be higher?

A building's age can be a cause of concern for would-be buyers. Properties built with traditional or "vernacular" techniques can be unexpectedly hard to upkeep. It is often the case that specialist knowledge is necessary. Especially for Grade I listed property, Traditional building materials may be required. This may mean long-term upkeep.
