HomeBuyer Report

Should I get a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a house in Heywood and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey, however it is essentially the same.

If the Heywood property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make any alterations, it would be better that you commission a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap, however it will offer an in-depth analysis of the Heywood property's condition along with an opinion on defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

Conservatory

On a HomeBuyer Report carried out in Heywood, what might 'E7 - Conservatory and porches' refer to?

The RICS HomeBuyer Report is designed to be user-friendly. The report employs 'traffic light' ratings of red, amber and green how serious the issues which the surveyor has discovered actually are. E7 elements are visually inspected. Safety hazards, including floor-level glass and blocked escape routes from upper storey windows will be considered too. Mechanical damage to a conservatory roof is an example.

Damage resulting from flooding

We are purchasing a residence in Heywood, does the chartered surveyor investigate any flood damage, or whether flooding has affected the garden?

The lives of many residents in Heywood and across the UK have been affected by floods. If you are planning to buy in a flood-affected area, a survey report will inform your decision. A flood alert service, with regular updates, is operated by the Environment Agency. Flood water can enter a Heywood house through a number of routes, including air bricks, poorly fitted doors and windows, and seepage through external walls. Less expensive preventative measures include door guards. The RICS surveyor may ask the property owner or occupier about historical floods, although the result of these enquires should be treated as a guide only.
