HomeBuyer Report

Should I select a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a home in Holloway and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, although it is basically the same the same comprehensive survey.

If the Holloway property is a flat or maisonette, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out an extension, RICS recommend you carry out a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap however it does give a more detailed analysis of the Holloway property's general condition along with advice on defects and maintenance options .

Damage caused by high rainfall

Is it advisable to investigate gutters? Will the HomeBuyer Report give details on this?

I find it odd that this issue is not considered by purchasers. If you have only seen the property you intend to purchase on a sunny day, defects may not have been obvious. Signs that drainage are damaged include "gushing" gutters, and may lead to warped floorboards or beams. Fortunately, guttering issues are usually easy to remedy, if not neglected. If disregarded, however, the damage can be very costly and time-consuming to remedy.

Deteriorated timber

For the Holloway HomeBuyer Report, what does a an amber light rating mean for joinery and finishes?

The format of the RICS HomeBuyer Report is clear and easy to read, unlike some more complex survey reports. Colour coded ratings are used to communicate the severity of defects uncovered during the survey. Defects which need some attention are rated 'amber' or condition rating 2. This may not be urgent, however. Parts of the report which do not apply to the specific property being surveyed will be indicated with a 'NI', or 'not inspected'. Irrespective of standardised format of the report, your surveyor will provide a bespoke report, tailored to your particular concerns.

They are visually inspected with the aid of binoculars where appropriate. Both bargeboards, and general verge details, will be covered. Vines is an example.

Shocking Electrics

When we viewed the period property we intend to purchase, it looked like there were damaged electrical sockets, will a Holloway Homebuyer Report advise the electrics?

When carrying out a Holloway Homebuyer Report a surveyor should usually report on the condition of the electrics if it looks like the electrics are in a less than satisfactory state.

This will include a by sight check of the open sections of the wiring or fusebox on top of areas like reporting on the state of repair of the fixed electrical appliances like heaters.

Verifying the existence of any evidence of the most recent Periodic Inspection Report carried out by an electrician will usually form part of the survey. Examining the documentation from a test on the condition of the electrical installations carried out by an electrician should usually form part of the survey.
