HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to go for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a property in Worcester and which one is the cheapest?

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

If the Worcester property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any substantial modifications, it would be better that you select a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap, but it does offer a thorough analysis of the Worcester property's general condition in addition to advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

Timber damage by insect larvae

There may be vermin at the property in Worcester we're buying, but we are not certain - Should we get a house surveyor?

Be aware that your solicitor's forms may not ask about this issue. Unfortunately, the impact to a house and its inhabitants can affect the health of residents and affect its value. Signs may not be obvious. For example, mice are able to squeeze through even small gaps and holes, and quickly spread disease through their droppings. Remedies to bug or other pest issues can include professional cleaning. If investigation does uncover a problem, consider speaking to the seller to ask that they deal with the issue prior to exchange.

Substandard guttering

On a Worcester HomeBuyer Report what are common defects an amber light rating impacting 'E3 - Rainwater pipes and gutters' ?

They are visually inspected. E3 does not cover internal parts of the water system, such as suspected issues relating to a combined heating and water system. Where roof drains are not located at the roof's lowest points is an example of this.

The RICS HomeBuyer Report is designed to be user-friendly, and avoid potentially unfamiliar technical language. Colour coded ratings are used to communicate to what extent each defect requires attention. Defects which need some attention are rated 'amber' or condition rating 2, but this may not be urgent. Parts of the report which do not apply to the specific property being surveyed will be indicated with a 'NI', or 'not inspected'. Irrespective of standardised format of the report, your surveyor will provide a bespoke report, tailored to your particular concerns.
