HomeBuyer Report

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

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey and is effectively the same.

If the Halesworth property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction, you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any substantial modifications, RICS advise you choose a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap however it will give a thorough analysis of the Halesworth property's condition as well as advice on defects and maintenance options .

Overgrown flat roof with weeds

On a Halesworth HomeBuyer Report can you give examples of Condition rating 2 defects affecting 'E2 - Roof coverings' ?

As part of Section E, E2 reports on flat and sloped roof issues. These are comprehensively checked, provided that access is possible. If access cannot be arranged, e.g. the property is a flat, the surveyor will be unable to include this in the report. A blistered or 'alligatoring' roof covering is one example.

Amber, or condition rating 2, defects will need to be repaired or replaced at some point, but this may not be urgent.

Shocking Electrics

When we visited the house we are intending to lease, it looked like there was no RCD on the fuse board , does a the Halesworth surveyor advise on any faults with the electrics?

When performing a Halesworth Building Survey a qualified surveyor should usually add detail on the electrics if it is obvious that the electrics are in a hazardous state.

This will include a visual check (i.e. no removal of fittings) of open or exposed parts of the wiring and other concerns such as making sure that supplementary bonding is in the correct place. A check for the documents from the most recent PIR conducted by an electrician will form part of the survey. Ascertaining the whereabouts of any documents from any recent PIR carried out by an electrician on the building should usually form part of the survey.

The IEE advocate that a PIR be conducted at least every 10 years (5 if letting out).

Roof defects identified during a survey

I am going to put in an offer in on a home in Halesworth. What does the chartered surveyor keep an eye out for during the investigation?

Questions like this are often asked of RICS surveyors by house purchasers who are aware that property could feature difficulties with the roof. From parapet walls to purlins, the whole roof should be reported on. Flat roofs can also be a nuisance, caused by factors like a slope of less than 12 to 15 degrees.

In the past, roof maintenance would be carried out with just ladders and 'crawler boards'. This practice is terribly unsafe, and contractors today will insist that scaffolding be used. A roofing contractor in the local area with accreditation can provide a quote.
