Need a Home Buyers Survey? Which one should you choose?

  • House suitable for a HomeBuyer Report

  • Property suitable for a Building Survey

    The Building Survey (often referred to as a Full Structural Survey in Linton) will also be conducted by a RICS surveyor but is more thorough. Choose this option when buying a non standard e.g. thatched roof houses.

HomeBuyer Report

Should I book a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a house in Linton and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey and is effectively the same.

If the Linton property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any an extension, you should you select a Building Survey. This option is less cheap, however it will give you a more detailed analysis of the Linton property's general condition and it includes information on defects and maintenance options .

Stone block wall damage

I am intending to put an offer in on a home in Linton partially constructed Portland stone. Are there specific potential issues to bear in mind, and what does the survey cover?

Poor use of coating can often cause problems for Linton homes with stone walls. Defects affecting stone-built Linton homes can vary, delaminated render being relatively common. Stone quarried in the area is common to local Linton homes, but some do also feature cut stone brought from outside the county. Choice of stone will impact the lifespan of a structure, for example, limestone can quickly deteriorate.

Home Buyers Surveys will usually offer guidance on these matters. An example would be fast replacement of any stones which have become loose.

Shocking Electrics

When I viewed the mid-century home I want to acquire, it looked like there is old wiring; will a surveyor write anything on any faults with the electrics?

When performing a Home Buyers Survey in Linton a surveyor will mention the condition of the electrics if it is obvious that the electrics are in a poor state of repair. A Surveyor is expected to issues like checking the category of the electrical fittings in bathrooms or reporting on the condition of a representative sample of the range of light fittings and switch gear. Reporting on any evidence of the most recent PIR conducted by an electrician should usually form part of the survey.

The IEE advise a Periodic Inspection Report (PIR) be conducted every ten years (or every 5 if renting out).

Traditionally built property

What do I need to look out for when purchasing an older property? What should be budgeted for maintenance?

The age of a structure can sometimes be an issue. Houses built with traditional or "vernacular" techniques can be costly to upkeep. You should consider that specialist knowledge may be needed, and it could also be necessary to find Materials suitable for the work. Mention this to your surveyor for more information. Constructed in the 16th century, Vanity Lane, Court Lodge in Linton is a good example of a Medieval property.
