HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to select a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a home in Fernhill Heath and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same.

If the Fernhill Heath property is a flat, or is an older property, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make substantial modifications, RICS recommend you book a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it does give you a more detailed analysis of the Fernhill Heath property's condition along with an opinion on defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

Roof defects identified during a survey

The seller mentioned that the had been issues with cracked supports, and we are wary of potential roofing issues. Will access to the roofing be an issue?

This is often asked by purchasers who know that homes may be exposed to issues with the roof like. From sheathing to tie beams, the whole roof should be reported on. Flat roofs can also be a nuisance, caused by factors like a poor asphalt covering.

The expense of loft insulation, or other major roof work, means that some owners put it off for as long as possible. This is a false economy, as such issues can lead to more severe general structural problems. A quote for the work could be sought from a reliable contractor.

Timber damage by insect larvae

We are buying a Fernhill Heath property but are worried about pests. Is a HomeBuyer Report advisable?

Pests like lice may sometimes seem a small, even irrelevant, matter when buying in Fernhill Heath. Regrettably, vermin can be costly to fix and put your health in danger. It is vital that buyers consider this oft-overlooked aspect when making an offer.

Signs may not be evident for weeks or months, for example, the smell of ammonia in or behind cupboards may indicate mice, even if no droppings are found.

Remedies to a serious infestation can include chemical treatment and destruction of tainted materials. Your surveyor may report on signs of infestation, but if you have specific concerns they can be taken into account.

Building Surveys on houses

Are there any reasons for choosing the full structural survey in Fernhill Heath as opposed to a HomeBuyer Report when considering a doer-upper townhouse?

Albeit often referred to as Full Structural Surveys buy agents and buyers alike the correct term is actually now Building Surveys Opt for a Building Survey in relation to the house outlined. The HomeBuyer Report is appropriate if investigating a 60 year old or less unmodified Fernhill Heath house made out of typical construction materials.
