HomeBuyer Report

Should I get a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a property in Diss and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey, although it is basically the same the same level of survey.

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

If you intend to carry out substantial modifications, RICS recommend you go for a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap, but it will give exhaustive analysis of the Diss property's general condition in addition to an opinion on defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

Defective door frame

In the HomeBuyer Report, what impact will a an amber light rating have on outside doors?

RICS created the HomeBuyer Report to give house purchasers a clear and easy to read report on the condition of the home they plan to buy, unlike less prescriptive surveys. These may offer more complex detail, but they are also less useful for house purchasers deciding whether or not to purchase a house. The report employs 'traffic light' ratings of red, amber and green the impact on the property individual defects may have. A condition rating of two means that the element covered will need work at some point. This may not be urgent, however. Not inspected' is used to indicate those subsections of Section E which do not apply to the residence. Irrelevant subsections of the HomeBuyer Report, like an assessment of a conservatory where the home in question does not have one, are disregarded. Quite a common example is water leaks around door frames. The surveyor will confirm that all external doors work,

assuming keys are available. Generally, the thresholds of doorways are also surveyed, checking that access is level, water is excluded from leaking into the property, etc.

Roof defects identified during a survey

We are buying a loft-conversion in Diss, and we are sensitive to the cost of roof repairs. What advice would the home surveyor give in their report?

Local property with no other major issues will suffer difficulties with the roof. From eaves to roof battens, every part of the roof must be reviewed. Flat roofs can also be a nuisance, caused by factors like being literally flat, as opposed to on a small incline so that water can drain correctly.

Given the high cost of major roof repairs like felting a flat roof, some homeowners may defer maintenance indefinitely. This makes both the cause and the consequences harder and even more expensive to treat when repairs do take place. If a estimate for roofing work is required, a Diss roofing contractor can provide one. Call Eastern Roofing & Roofline of 13 Hare Cl, Mulbarton, Norwich, NR14 8QQ on 01508 570966 for an estimate.
