HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to get a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a property in Swinton and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, although it is basically the same the same comprehensive survey.

If the Swinton property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any alterations, RICS recommend you book a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it does offer an in-depth analysis of the Swinton property's condition and it includes advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

Stone block wall damage

I am purchasing a Swinton property and the vendor has told us that it has been built with Doulting stone. What should we look in to?

Locally quarried stone may be more susceptible to specific issues. Issues including stone faces affect many stone-walled property. Bear in mind that some defects will affect regular or irregularly cut stone equally, whereas others will not, and may require a local surveyors expertise

to identify. In addition, lime mortar may feature in the building's construction. Stone walls require regular maintenance, such as cleaning loose fragments and dirt before repointing or applying any treatment or fixative, to slow decay.

External walls

On the HomeBuyer Report, what are the usual Condition rating 3 defects affecting main walls?

A condition rating of three is used to emphasise the most crucial repairs. In some cases, such a rating may indicate further expert opinion is needed before an accurate statement can be given. All visible issues relating to the outside elevations and foundations are checked. If hidden issues with the walls or foundations are suspected, a more comprehensive structural survey may be advised. Observations on the Damp Proof Course are also reported here. A dropped, rotating or leaning arch, for example, would be reported here.

Building Surveys on houses

Do I need to order a full structural survey before buying a substantially modified period home in Swinton?

Full Structural Surveys are now known as the Building Surveys. It is the right choice of home survey if buying an unusual house e.g. an older house.
