HomeBuyer Report

Should I choose a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a house in Alvechurch and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey, although it is effectively the same comprehensive survey.

If the Alvechurch property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any significant alterations, RICS recommend you choose a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it will give an in-depth analysis of the Alvechurch property's state of repair as well as an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

Building Surveys on houses

What are the benefits to go for the full structural survey rather than a HomeBuyer Report?

Full Structural Surveys are no longer offered and the new type of survey which is given the name Building Survey, is now offered by surveyors. It is the most appropriate choice if buying an unconventional house e.g. a neglected house. The report details comprehensive and often serious insight concerning the property's construction and uses on top of any important technical details, following a thorough inspection of any accessible parts of the house.

Damage resulting from flooding

Will our Alvechurch home buyers survey search for signs of water damage, or if neighbour's houses have been affected?

Burst dams, poor drainage and tidal activity could all cause major floods, and it is not clear that reasonably-priced flooding insurance will be available in years to come. It is easily possible to assess whether a house is susceptible to flooding via any of a number of routes. The Building Survey may also, where appropriate, advise on needed maintenance.

The GroundSure Flood Report is one of several risk screening reports designed to provide an overview of whether a house lies within an area of potential or previous flood risk. The building surveyor will usually recommend that the home purchasers seek legal advice on any related information mentioned in the report.

Other external areas of the property

In a Alvechurch HomeBuyer Report what impact can a Condition rating 3 have on 'E9 - Other' ?

The part of the HomeBuyer Report mentions other aspects which do not fit into the other categories. Your surveyor can provide more details if required. Rot and insect damage to a porch or conservatory's structure is an example of this.

Severe defects impacting the Alvechurch house are indicated with a 'red' condition rating of 3. They can include defects which compromise the structural integrity of a Alvechurch residence. Parts of the report which do not apply to the specific Alvechurch house being surveyed will be indicated with a 'NI', or 'not inspected'. The HomeBuyer Report has a standard format, which the surveyor will complete according to the nuances of the particular Alvechurch house, omitting sections as necessary.
