HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to have a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a property in Brislington and which one is cheaper?

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

If the Brislington property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction, then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make significant alterations, it would be better that you commission a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap but it will give you comprehensive details of the Brislington property's general condition and it includes advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

Timber damage by insect larvae

We are buying in Brislington, and think we saw signs of an infestation in the living room. Should we get a chartered surveyor?

Brislington houses are not usually impacted by serious cases of infestations, but buying without any professional advice on the issue is not recommended. Pests quite literally come in all shapes and sizes, and can be more difficult to treat than many buyers realise. An affected home may not always be easy to identify, for example, a moth infestation may not be found for months after purchase, and even if treated, may never be fully eradicated. Remedies can take time, so if you opt to proceed with the purchase, check with a specialist how long treatment will take. Your chartered

surveyor may report on signs of infestation, but if you have specific concerns they can be taken into account.

Damage caused by high rainfall

How will we know what effect may heavy rainfall have on our new home in Brislington? Also, if there are issues, will they be inconvenient to fix?

Regular rainfall is common in Brislington and across the country, but the effect which heavy rainfall has on properties is rarely considered properly. Signs that rainwater goods are damaged include rusted iron elements. This could then result in hazardous mould.

Fortunately, this is generally easy to remedy, if not neglected. If poorly maintained, however, the damage will impact both the home's value, and the residents' enjoyment of the property.

Window frame

In the HomeBuyer Report, what impact can a Condition rating 2 have on windows?

A condition rating of two means that the element covered will need work at some point. The condition of this particular aspect of the property is unlikely to require urgent work, however. The RICS HomeBuyer Report is designed to be user-friendly. As buyers in Brislington are unlikely to be experts in local building techniques and materials themselves, the report is written with as little jargon as possible. Colour coded ratings are used to communicate the impact on the property individual defects may have. Where practicable, all windows are to be opened and closed, but not forced open, and vulnerable areas closely examined. The surveyor should make notes and advise the client whether it is possible to operate the window transoms/openings satisfactorily. A rusted metal window frame is one defect applicable to this section.
