HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to book a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a house in Brynford and which one would be cheaper?

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

If the Brynford property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any alterations on the property, RICS advise you choose a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap however it does give you a more detailed analysis of the Brynford property's condition as well as including advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

Deteriorated timber

On a Brynford HomeBuyer Report, what might 'E8' cover?

The RICS HomeBuyer Report is designed to be user-friendly, unlike less prescriptive surveys. These may offer more complex detail, but they are also less useful for purchasers deciding whether or not to purchase a Brynford home. Red, amber and green ratings give purchasers indicate the severity of any defects or points of interest included in the report. Not inspected' is used to indicate those subsections of Section E which do not apply to the Brynford residence. The structured format for the HomeBuyer Report is intended to produce a useful and comprehensive survey for any purchasers. As a result, some sections are omitted where they do not apply to the surveyed property. Problems impacting the roof are checked here. These are inspected with the aid of binoculars where appropriate. Any timber or PVC cladding fixed to the main walling are reported on. Rotten soffits or fascias is an example.

Conservation area

Are there any considerations we would be advised to look out for if intending to buy a converted flat in Brynford in the vicinity of a conservation area?

There are nearly 10, 000 of designated conservation areas throughout the country, responsibility for which lies with the local authority. Brynford surveyors must possess knowledge of relevant local area issues and the connection they have with the property. The value of homes is generally higher which is down to them being unspoilt. However many conservation areas have fallen into disrepair e.g. the addition of PVC windows and doors

Surveyors are expected note if the property is possibly within a conservation area and Section I of the Brynford Homebuyer Report will advise additional due diligence and enquiries are raised by your solicitor. Unconsented adjustments to the building may also be reported in the Brynford survey but these are really more a concern for your lawyer.

Damage resulting from flooding

Is there a risk of flooding in Brynford, and can a Brynford Brynford surveyor consider possible water damage, or if other houses on the street have been affected?

Recent conflict between insurers has the government has caused a great deal of uncertainty, and the value of a Brynford home in an at-risk area may be impacted. It is strongly recommended that prevention methods are considered, before flood damage occurs, and a property surveyor will advise on repairs or preventative measures.

Preventative measures can include costly but effective solutions e.g. correctly installed window and door frames. Flooding issues will only be raised in Section J of a Home Buyers Survey if the home surveyor observes or has reason to suspect that the home is at risk.
