HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to select a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a property in Easingwold and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey, although it is effectively the same level of survey.

If the Easingwold property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make any alterations on the property, RICS recommend you choose a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap however it does give a more detailed analysis of the Easingwold property's general condition as well as more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

Overgrown flat roof with weeds

On a HomeBuyer Report carried out in Easingwold what are common an red light rating defects for 'E2 - Roof coverings' ?

For a Easingwold property, one issue is mastic on an EPDM roof. Roof coverings, including flat and sloped roofs are inspected by the surveyor, provided that access is possible. If it is not possible to properly access this area for inspection (if, for example, the property is a flat), the surveyor will make note of this in their report.

RICS created the HomeBuyer Report to give purchasers a clear and easy to read report on the condition of the home they plan to buy. As buyers in Easingwold are unlikely to be experts in local building techniques and materials themselves, the report is written with as little jargon as possible. Red, amber and green ratings give purchasers indicate the severity of defects uncovered during the survey. Matters which require urgent action are highlighted with a 'red' or condition rating of 3. These can include dangers such as the suspected presence of asbestos, or extensive structural damage. Not inspected' is used to indicate those subsections of Section E which do not

apply to the Easingwold house or flat. RICS have mandated a specific format for the HomeBuyer Report to aid the creation of a useful and comprehensive report for both surveyors and home buyers. As a result, some sections may not be relevant to every property, such as reporting on the condition of the roof of a ground floor flat.

Building Surveys on houses

Is it worth paying a higher price for a full structural survey, as opposed to a Homebuyer Report when buying thirties home in Easingwold?

Building Survey is now the correct term for the Structural Survey following its new title a couple of years ago by the RICS. Choose a Building Survey for the house mentioned. The HomeBuyer Report is enough for a mid 20th century of later Easingwold property of typical construction materials. Be aware that certain limitations exist with a Building Survey as your surveyor cannot open up the structure of the house nor can they comment on the regulatory compliance of heating systems.

Stone block wall damage

I am purchasing a home and the vendor has informed us that it has been constructed with Kentish Rag stone. Which problems should we consider?

Britain's geology has encouraged the use of many varieties of stone, from Naylor Hill Sandstone to Farmington Stone. Buyers should also be aware that the potential severity of issues like deteriorating bedding will vary with the particular type of stone.

Regular stone walls are built with prepared or cut stone, called ashlar, and are often easier to maintain than walls of irregular construction. This is a generalisation however, as limestone or sandstone-built and regularly-coursed walls can decay rapidly when exposed to more extreme environmental conditions or pollution. Stone will also decay as a result of environmental conditions, for example, granite is more water resistant that most other stones. You can ask the surveyor carrying out the survey for specific advice, but common maintenance suggestions include resolution of underlying problems, like damp, before work on the wall starts.
