HomeBuyer Report

Should we select a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a home in Maryland and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey and is essentially the same.

If the Maryland property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any alterations, RICS advise you go for a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap but it does give an in-depth analysis of the Maryland property's state of repair as well as including more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Damage resulting from flooding

When getting in Maryland, should we be concerned about a flood risk, and will the property surveyor search for flooding damage?

Overflowing rivers, rain and tides can cause floods, and insurance premiums. can be significantly affected for properties in flood-risk areas.

Your RICS surveyor may use several methods to determine if the Maryland house in question is in danger. Flood water can enter a house through a number of routes, including air bricks, poorly fitted doors and windows, and seepage through external walls.

The GroundSure Flood Report is one of several risk screening reports designed to provide an overview of whether a house lies within an area of potential or previous flood risk. The surveyor may ask the property owner or occupier if the house has previously flooded. Note that the response to such enquires should not be exclusively relied upon.

No recent flood alerts were given for Maryland, according to the Environment Agency.

Timber damage by insect larvae

I am worried about pests in the Maryland building we plan to buy. Will the Home Buyers Survey investigate this?

Homes are generally free of pests, but it is inadvisable to risk buying without more information if you have suspicions.

Unfortunately, the threat posed by these to property is very real, and can be very expensive to resolve. An affected home may not always be easy to identify, for example, skin irritation or spots of blood on bedsheets may indicate the presence of bed bugs. Treatment for vermin may include chemical treatment or destruction of tainted materials. As awareness of less common problems grows, more surveys should identify these and advise on remedies.

Shocking Electrics

When I saw the house I am hoping to lease, it looked like there could be corrosion of the wiring - does a Homebuyer Report in Maryland report on the general state of the electrical system?

When preparing a Maryland Home Survey the home surveyor should usually make a note on the condition of the electrics if it looks like the electrics are in an unsatisfactory condition. He or she is trained to things like whether there is an on-peak/off-peak supply. Examining the documents from a test on the condition of the electrical installations conducted by an electrician will be part of the survey. Reporting on any documents from a test on the condition of the electrical installations conducted by an electrician will usually form part of the survey.
