Which Home Buyers Survey should you select?

  • House suitable for a HomeBuyer Report

    A RICS Homebuyer Report is the best choice when purchasing a property constructed from conventional materials i.e. tile & brick, in reasonable repair and less than 100 years old.

  • Property suitable for a Building Survey

    A Building Survey (previously called a Full Structural Survey in Taverham) will also be conducted by a MRICS or FRICS qualified surveyor but is more exhaustive. Select this option when buying a non standard e.g. architecturally unusual houses.

  • Surveyor carrying out a Property Valuation

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to go for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a property in Taverham and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey and is effectively the same survey.

If the Taverham property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any substantial modifications, RICS recommend you opt for a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it does provide you with an in-depth analysis of the Taverham property's state of repair in addition to advice on defects and maintenance options .

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

We are buying a Taverham home built in the early 60s, but it has clay foundations. Can we expect the Taverham House Survey to mention this? Does the chartered surveyor give maintenance advice?

There are several concerns associated with clay soil. Specific problems include soil swelling, capable of irreparably damaging a home if untreated.

Evidence of clay soil-related problems can sometimes be found throughout a structure, such as cracks along the living room floor. There is a real benefit in booking a Taverham surveyor to carry out your Building Survey, familiar with local soil composition, and who has witnessed the effects first-hand.

Chimney stacks

On a Taverham HomeBuyer Report what does 'E1' refer to?

Elements of the property reviewed by Section E will be checked thoroughly from the ground if the roof is hard to access. If the chimney is leaning by a vertical offset of over 30% is an example of a Section E defect.

The home buyer report is intended to be easy to read and understand, unlike less prescriptive surveys. These may offer more complex detail, but they are also less useful for property purchasers deciding whether or not to purchase a Taverham residence. The surveyor uses a scale between 1 and 3 to show to what extent any problems or notable points may negatively impact the property.

Traditionally built property

What do I need to investigate when purchasing a house built in around 1770? Will regular maintenance costs be higher?

Use of traditional methods can often be problematic. Buildings constructed with traditional or "vernacular" techniques can be a drain to repair. You should bear in mind that expert knowledge may be needed, and it could also be necessary to find Construction materials, such as suitable timber, , which could make the final cost hard to predict.
