Need a Home Survey ? Which one is the right choice?

  • House suitable for a HomeBuyer Report

    A RICS Homebuyer Report is the right choice if planning to purchase a home constructed from standard materials i.e. brick & tile, not dilapidated and not over 100 years in age.

  • Property suitable for a Building Survey

    Building Survey in Papworth Everard

    A Building Survey (previously called a Full Structural Survey in Papworth Everard) is also carried out by a MRICS or FRICS accredited surveyor but is more comprehensive. Opt for this when buying a non standard property such as mundic homes.

HomeBuyer Report

Should we have a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a property in Papworth Everard and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey but is basically the same the same comprehensive survey.

If the Papworth Everard property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any works or an extension, you should you carry out a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap, however it will give comprehensive details of the Papworth Everard property's condition along with advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Chimney stacks

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

Chimney stacks are visually reviewed with binoculars as required. Sections of the flue which are poorly secured is an example.

The home buyer report is intended to be easy to read and understand. Red, amber and green ratings give home buyers in Papworth Everard indicate how concerning each aspect of the report is. Condition rating three is used to highlight very serious issues. These issues could risk the health and safety of residents. In some cases, an element covered under

Section E may be marked as NI, or 'Not inspected'. Where the surveyor is unable to gain access to some areas, e.g. the roof of a block of flats, these aspects of the report will not be completed.

Damage resulting from flooding

Are Papworth Everard properties at risk, and does a home buyers survey consider signs of water damage?

Last year was the second wettest year on record (source: The Telegraph), and purchasers and owners are understandably concerned. Your RICS surveyor may use several methods to determine if the house in Papworth Everard in question is in danger.

Flooding can increase the likelihood of water entering a home in Papworth Everard, such as via seepage through external walls.

Preventative measures can include costly but effective solutions e.g. appropriate drainage. The surveyor will usually recommend that the purchasers seek legal advice on any related information mentioned in the report.

Damage caused by high rainfall

Is rain an issue in Papworth Everard, and does our HomeBuyer Report mention it? Also, where there [var10], what should we do?

I find it odd that high levels of rainfall and the effect it can have on your home are usually overlooked. If you have investigated the home in on a clear day, problems are unlikely to be visible. This could then result in warped floorboards or beams.

That is not to say that drainage problems should cause you to reconsider a purchase. They are usually a simple matter to repair. If not cleared out regularly, the resulting damage can lower the value of the property and will get increasingly difficult to successfully resolve.
