HomeBuyer Report

Should I select a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a house in Ash and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey but is essentially the same comprehensive survey.

If the Ash property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make alterations, RICS advise you go for a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap, but it does provide you with a more detailed analysis of the Ash property's general condition as well as including advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

Building Surveys on houses

Should I pay more for a full structural survey when considering Edwardian property in Ash?

Structural Surveys do not exist now and the Building Survey is the new more technical home survey. Choose a Building Survey if you are thinking of buying the house outlined. The HomeBuyer Report is all you really need for a post fifties unmodified Ash home of standard construction materials. There are certain limitations are integral with the survey insofar as your surveyor will not be able to force

or open up the structure of the house nor can he/she inspect where doing so could cause damage to the house.

Gas flame

Does a qualified surveyor inspect the serviceability of the gas supply?

The surveyor will visually inspect any easily accessible parts of the gas system. This will include gas heaters as part of the survey, as well as gas affiliated installations such as ventilation of flue (if blocked). The external fittings however, won't be removed. Gas is potentially fatal, if you have any concerns relating to gas installations, call a gas safe engineer.

Deteriorated timber

For a HomeBuyer Report on a Ash property what effect will a Condition rating 2 have on 'E8 - Other joinery and finishes' ?

An example defect for this is damage to soffits or fascias. This section includes visual aspects of the roof, checked with the aid of binoculars where appropriate. Ornamental joinery such as finials or mock Tudor panelling will be investigated. Amber, or condition rating 2, defects will need to be repaired or replaced at some point, but they are not considered to be urgent or serious. They may also require frequent upkeep. RICS created the HomeBuyer Report to give property buyers a clear and easy to read report on the condition of the home they plan to buy, with a minimum of technical jargon. Three colour coded ratings give an understanding of to what extent each defect requires attention.
