Which Survey is the best choice for my prospective home purchase ?

  • House suitable for a HomeBuyer Report

  • Property suitable for a Building Survey

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a property in Stratford Village and which is cheaper?

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

If the Stratford Village property is a flat or maisonette, or is a period property, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any an extension, it would be better that you select a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap however it will give you a more detailed analysis of the Stratford Village property's general condition as well as advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

Overgrown flat roof with weeds

In a Stratford Village HomeBuyer Report, what might a Condition rating 3 mean for roof coverings?

RICS created the HomeBuyer Report to give house buyers a clear and easy to read report on the condition of the home they plan to buy, unlike some more complex survey reports. Colour coded ratings are used to communicate the severity of defects uncovered during the survey. Severe defects impacting the home are indicated with a 'red' condition rating of 3. 'Red' defects may also need further investigation by a qualified specialist before a full assessment can be made. Parts of the report which do not apply to the specific home

being surveyed will be indicated with a 'NI', or 'not inspected'. Where the surveyor is unable to gain access to some areas, e.g. the roof of a block of flats, these aspects of the report will not be completed.

Roof coverings, including flat and sloped roofs will be reviewed, if these parts of the property are easy to view or easy to access. A chimney stack or parapet with a visible lean is an example.

Damage caused by high rainfall

Is rainfall an issue in Stratford Village?

Both in Stratford Village, and throughout the county, rain is so common that buyers rarely think about it. Unfortunately the effect which rain has on a house is not considered. Signs that gutters are under performing include leaves or other vegetation causing a blockage.

That is not to say that drainage problems should cause you to reconsider a purchase. They are usually a simple matter to resolve.

Roof defects identified during a survey

We are buying a loft-conversion in Stratford Village, and we are wary of potential roofing issues. What advice would the surveyor give in their report?

Homes in the area in otherwise fine condition can be hiding serious cracked and loose slates or tiles, among a range of other roofing issues. Any part of the roof or loft, such as collar beams, ought to be checked. Difficulties can often arise in the case of flat roofs, caused by amateur repairs.

Roof maintenance can be the cause of serious accidents, which is why modern contractors refuse to work without scaffolding. Once the surveyor has delivered their report, consider arranging a quote from a roofing contractor in the local area for the job itself.
