HomeBuyer Report

Should I go for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a house in Uxbridge and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same.

If the Uxbridge property is a flat, or is an older property, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out an extension, RICS recommend you book a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap however it will give a more detailed analysis of the Uxbridge property's state of repair along with more detailed advice on defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

Building Surveys on houses

Do we need to do the full structural survey if purchasing a converted thirties property near Uxbridge instead of a HomeBuyer Report?

Now often still referred to as a Full Structural Survey by many agents and buyers, this survey is no longer offered has actually been re-titled by RICS and the right term is now the Building Survey. A HomeBuyer Report is detailed enough for a post 1950s unmodified home of typical building materials. When contemplating the buying of an unconventional house, for example a neglected Uxbridge house - this is the best home survey to opt for. Around 3 days following a thorough inspection of the inside and outside of the main building and permanent outbuildings a written report (digital and written copy) will be delivered to the purchaser outlining comprehensive and crucial details concerning the construction of the house. There will be certain restrictions with any survey because a surveyor is not able to (unless owners consent provided) force or open up the fabric of the Uxbridge property, an example being the removing secured panels.

Defective door frame

For the Uxbridge HomeBuyer Report, what will 'E6' include?

The format of the RICS HomeBuyer Report is clear and easy to read, with a minimum of technical jargon. The report employs 'traffic light' ratings of red, amber and green to what extent any problems or notable points may negatively impact the property. Parts of the report which do not apply to the specific property 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.

The surveyor will confirm that all external doors work, assuming keys are available. In general, where doors have obviously been replaced, relevant issues are considered. This can include overall quality, whether the frame provides adequate support, and building regulations have been met (e.g. FENSA and Certass). Inefficient drip caps around a door frame is an example.
