HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to have a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a home in The Ridgeway and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey but is essentially the same comprehensive survey.

If the The Ridgeway property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make significant alterations, it would be better that you choose a Building Survey. This option is less cheap but it does provide you with a thorough analysis of the The Ridgeway property's condition as well as including more detailed advice on defects , repairs as well as maintenance options .

Defective door frame

On a HomeBuyer Report carried out in The Ridgeway what might a green light rating mean for 'E6 - Outside doors' ?

In The Ridgeway, an example may be drip caps that are badly fitted or missing. External doors are checked, assuming keys are available. Broadly speaking, the thresholds of doorways are also surveyed, checking that access is level, water is excluded from leaking into the property, etc. RICS HomeBuyer Reports are transparent, detailed surveys of residential property, and avoid potentially unfamiliar technical language. The report uses colour coded condition ratings to give buyers in The Ridgeway a clear understanding of how concerning each aspect of the report is. Aspects of the property in good or excellent condition are marked as 'green' with a condition rating of 1, but maintenance may still be necessary. Parts of the report which do not apply to the specific home being surveyed will be indicated with a 'NI', or 'not inspected'. RICS have mandated a

specific format for the HomeBuyer Report to aid the creation of a useful and comprehensive report for both surveyors and home buyers. As a result, some sections may not be relevant to every property, such as reporting on the condition of the roof of a ground floor flat.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

We are buying in The Ridgeway and are looking for a residence built from Diagonal bond walls. What warnings would a The Ridgeway surveyor give? Does brick decay faster in The Ridgeway weather?

Brick-constructed converted property demonstrate several benefits. However, they can also indicate various issues and defects. One serious matter is thermal movement, caused by more extreme temperature variation, and resulting in vertical cracks. Hunt P R may be able to give a quote for any maintenance work. Contact them at 01933 410226 or 150 Hall Av, Rushden, NN10 9EU.

For home purchasers in The Ridgeway seeking a rare example of brick architecture, look for unusual course styles like basket weave bonds, with alternating groups of vertically and horizontally arranged bricks. It may be appropriate to renegotiate the price of a property if a survey reveals even superficial brick wall problems.

Traditionally built property

What should we pay attention to when buying older property in The Ridgeway? What should be budgeted for repairs?

Many purchasers plan to buy a home with character, such as a period conversion. The age of a structure, however, can concern buyers. Properties showcasing traditional or "vernacular" techniques can be expensive to repair. You should bear in mind that specialist expertise may be needed, and it could also be necessary to find Traditional materials, which could mean that it is all the more vital that you get a building survey prior to exchanging.If you plan to make alterations to a period property, discuss options with your RICS surveyor for further advice.
