Do you need a Home Buyers Survey? Which survey is the right choice?

    A RICS Homebuyer Report is the right choice when you are purchasing a property built from standard building materials i.e. tile & brick, not dilapidated and not over 100 years in age.

  • Property suitable for a Building Survey

    The Building Survey (previously called a Full Structural Survey in Canton) will also be carried out by a RICS chartered surveyor but is more comprehensive. Select this survey for non standard property such as stone houses.

HomeBuyer Report

Should we get a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a property in Canton and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey and is effectively the same comprehensive survey.

If the Canton property is a flat or maisonette, or is a period property, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out alterations on the property, RICS advise you choose a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it does give a thorough analysis of the Canton property's condition along with information on defects and maintenance options .

Shocking Electrics

When we went to see the home we are planning to buy, it appeared that there is evidence of an overload of the fuses - does a Canton Homebuyer Report go into detail on the wiring and fusebox?

When preparing a Canton Home Survey your surveyor should make a note on the overall electrical system if it is obvious that the electrics are in an unsafe state of repair. A professional surveyor is required to provide detail on possible problems relating to things like confirming the condition of the fixed electrical appliances e.g. storage radiators or whether there are residual circuit breakers (RCD) and/or miniature circuit breakers (MCBs). .

Examining the documentation from the most recent PIR handled by an electrician should usually form part of the survey.

Building Surveys on apartments

Is it the right choice to opt for a full structural survey prior to investing in a neglected, sixties duplex apartment near Canton?

Structural surveys have a new title and are now named the Building Surveys. If you are planning to buy an altered property such as a period apartment - this is the best choice. After a thorough survey of any accessible parts, a formal written report will be forwarded to the prospective purchaser summarising in depth and frequently critical professional advice in relation to the standard of construction and repair of the building. There will be several limitations with a property survey to consider because RICS chartered surveyor is not able to force or open up the fabric of the Canton property, an example being lifting up fitted carpets.

Traditionally built property

We are purchasing in Canton. What will we need to look out for when purchasing an old building? Will the age of the house be a concern?

Use of traditional methods can often be problematic. Homes built using traditional methods can be costly to upkeep. You should consider that specialist expertise may be needed. Traditional building materials may also need to be sourced, particularly in the case of Canton listed buildings. This may mean that it is all the more vital that you get a building survey prior to exchanging. If you are uncertain, speak to your chartered surveyor for further advice.
