HomeBuyer Report

Should I go for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a home in Penley and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey and is basically the same the same survey.

If the Penley property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out any alterations, you should you carry out a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it will give a more detailed analysis of the Penley property's state of repair in addition to advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Building Surveys on houses

Can you please explain the justification to upgrade to the full structural survey when looking into a doer-upper end of terrace bungalow in Penley as opposed to a HomeBuyer Report?

They are often still described as a Full Structural Survey by many, it is now defunct and as it has been given a new moniker by RICS and the right term is actually now the Building Survey.

The HomeBuyer Report is sufficient if buying a post fifties unmodified Penley house assembled from standard construction materials and methods i.e. brick and tile. If

you are buying an altered property like a dilapidated house in Penley - this is the most appropriate choice of home survey to get. Two to three days after an exhaustive survey of the accessible parts, a formal written report will be dispatched to the prospective buyer specifying any relevant details in relation to the construction of the house. There are certain limitations with a Building Survey to bear in mind because the surveyor will not be able to open up the fabric of the of the Penley house, an example being lifting up floor coverings.

Traditionally built property

I am purchasing a farmhouse. What impact will the structure have on repairs?

Vernacular, or traditional, architecture can often be problematic. Penley houses featuring traditional methods can be difficult to upkeep. It is often the case that expert knowledge is necessary.

What should I be aware of if buying a house next to a landfill site
