HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to have a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a property in Earls Barton and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same level of survey.

If the Earls Barton property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any major works, you should you commission a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap, but it will give you an in-depth analysis of the Earls Barton property's general condition in addition to advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

Timber damage by insect larvae

We are buying in Earls Barton, and think we saw signs of pests in the study. Do we need a chartered surveyor?

Purchasers should know that is not a requirement that a seller report on an infestation. When purchasing a house, this matter should be borne in mind. Signs may not be obvious. For example, small tunnels in wooded beams may indicate the presence of house longhorn beetles. Remedies to pest problems can include chemical treatment and removal or excision of affected timber.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

Can we get Flemish Diagonal bond maintenance advice for the Earls Barton house we're purchasing?

Brick-constructed apartments demonstrate several benefits. However, they can also suffer from various issues and defects. One particularly serious issue is thermal movement, particularly on longer walls. Burns Builders may be able to give a quote for any maintenance work. Contact them at 0161-317 0467 or Wilbraham Rd, Manchester, M14 7EN.

For buyers interested in less common uses of brick, consider ornamental chimneys, particularly common in Tudor-period property. Consider renegotiating the price of the Earls Barton property, based on the results of your survey. Works to remedy even some superficial brick wall defects can be both expensive and disruptive.

Substandard guttering

On the HomeBuyer Report, what might 'E3 - Rainwater pipes and gutters' include?

The format of the RICS HomeBuyer Report is clear and easy to read, unlike some more complex survey reports. Green, orange and red ratings are an indication of the impact on the property individual defects may have. They are visually inspected. E3 does not cover internal parts of the water system, such as possible defects such as blockages in sewer pipes. Downspouts discharging onto the ground is an example of this.
