HomeBuyer Report

Should I have a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a house in Merriott and which is cheaper?

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

If the Merriott property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out significant alterations, RICS recommend you select a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap, however it does give you a thorough analysis of the Merriott property's general condition and it includes advice on structural defects , repairs and maintenance options .

Chimney stacks

On a HomeBuyer Report carried out in Merriott what could a Condition rating 3 mean for 'E1 - Chimney stacks' ?

One example issue could be an obstructed flue or vent pipe. These elements will be checked thoroughly, using binoculars.

Red, or condition rating 3, defects are serious, or require immediate attention. Defects marked in red may also need further inspection by an expert, where asbestos is suspected to have been used in the house's construction. Parts of the report which do not apply to the specific Merriott house or flat being surveyed will be indicated with a 'NI', or 'not inspected'. RICS have mandated a specific format for the HomeBuyer Report to aid the creation of a useful and comprehensive report for both surveyors and home buyers. As a result, some sections may not be relevant to every property, such as reporting on the condition of the roof of a ground floor flat.

However many of them are falling into have been neglected and are in shoddy condition for example - the removal front garden walls

Surveyors can be expected to report if the home looks to be classified as such and Section I of your Merriott Homebuyer Report will advise the proper questions are raised by your legal representation. Unapproved changes that do not have Local Authority approval may also be noted but these are really more a investigated by the solicitor.
