HomeBuyer Report

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

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey, however it is essentially the same survey.

If the Martock property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make alterations, it would be better that you opt for a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it will offer an in-depth analysis of the Martock property's state of repair as well as information on defects as well as maintenance options .

If in doubt get a Martock Home Survey Quote or call us 0800 038 6667 to speak to one of our advisers.

Damage caused by high rainfall

Is it advisable to consider downspouts? If there is necessary work, will they be a hassle to fix?

As a frequent surveyor of homes in the region, I find it strange that the impact rainfall can have on homes in Martock is usually overlooked by purchasers. If you have visited the house you are buying in warm weather, issues may have been hidden. Signs that gutters are under performing include "gushing" gutters. This could then result in damage to foundations.

Luckily, drainage problems are generally easy to resolve. If not maintained, however, the damage can be very costly and time-consuming to remedy.

Other external areas of the property

On a Martock HomeBuyer Report, what does a Condition rating 2 mean for factors covered in Section E?

RICS HomeBuyer Reports are transparent, detailed surveys of residential property. Red, amber and green ratings give property purchasers indicate to what extent any problems or notable points may negatively impact the property. Issues requiring some attention are labelled condition rating 2, but they are not considered to be urgent or serious. They may also require frequent upkeep. The part of the HomeBuyer Report mentions other aspects that do not fit elsewhere in Section E. Your surveyor can provide more details if required. Settlement or other movement in a conservatory is an example of a Section E defect.

Shocking Electrics

When I was shown a property I am planning to buy, it looked like there is an unsafe electrical system - does a surveyor go into detail on electrical system condition?

During a Home Survey in Martock a RICS surveyor should usually comment on the state of the electrics if it is apparent that they are in a less than satisfactory condition. The RICS surveyor is required to report back on concerns such as verifying the state of the fixed electrical appliances e.g. storage radiators or if there are miniature circuit breakers. Ascertaining the whereabouts of any documents from the most recent Periodic Inspection Report carried out by an electrician should be part of the Homebuyer report in Martock.
