HomeBuyer Report

Should I go for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a property in Lee and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey but is basically the same the same level of survey.

If the Lee property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any works or an extension, RICS recommend you select a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap, however it will offer a thorough analysis of the Lee property's general condition in addition to advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

Roof defects identified during a survey

Our agent warned us that access to the structure's roof could be difficult to arrange. What aspects of the structure's roof will be considered?

This is often asked by buyers who know that homes can still be subject to issues with the roof like. From the dormer windows to the wind braces, the status of the whole roof should be reviewed. Flat roofs can also be a nuisance, caused by factors like a poor asphalt covering.

It may be inconvenient to employ scaffolding to perform repairs, especially in the busy parts of Lee, but it is a health and safety necessity. A quote (or several) for any necessary work should be acquired as soon as possible.

Traditionally built property

We are purchasing in Lee. What will we need to look out for when purchasing a house built in around 1730? What consequences will the property's cruck frame have on regular maintenance?

Many buyers in Lee hope to own a home with character. Vernacular architecture, however, can be problematic. Lee structures showcasing traditional or "vernacular" techniques can be challenging to maintain. You should be aware that specialist expertise may be needed. Construction materials, such as matching tiles, may also need to be sourced, particularly in the case of Lee listed buildings. This may mean it is a good idea to discuss current upkeep needs with the seller. Contact the surveyor for more detail.

Window frame

For a HomeBuyer Report on a Lee home, what will 'E5 - Windows' cover?

RICS created the HomeBuyer Report to give property purchasers a clear and easy to read report on the condition of the home they plan to buy, unlike less prescriptive surveys. These may offer more complex detail, but they are also less useful for property purchasers deciding whether or not to purchase a house or flat. Green, orange and red ratings are an indication of the severity of defects uncovered during the survey.

Where practicable, all windows are to be opened and closed, but not forced open, and vulnerable areas closely examined. The surveyor should make notes and advise the client whether it is possible to operate the window transoms/openings satisfactorily. A damp, rotten door frame, for example, is included in Section E.
