HomeBuyer Report

Should we opt for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a property in Blackpool and which would be the cheapest?

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

If the Blackpool property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any an extension, RICS recommend you select a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap, but it will provide you with an in-depth analysis of the Blackpool property's general condition as well as including advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

Defective door frame

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

Outside doors are to be opened and closed, assuming keys are available. Broadly speaking, draughts and damp penetration around the frames will be included. A rotted, damp wooden door frame is one example. A condition rating of 1 states that no repair work is needed, but maintenance may still be necessary. RICS created the HomeBuyer Report to give buyers a clear and easy to read report on the condition of the home they plan to buy. As buyers in Blackpool are unlikely to be experts in local building techniques and materials themselves, the report is written with as little jargon as possible. Green, orange and red ratings are an indication of the severity of defects uncovered during the survey.
