HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to go for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a home in Polesworth and which one is cheaper?

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

If the Polesworth property is a flat, or is an older property, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out alterations, it would be better that you carry out a Building Survey instead. This more detailed survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it does give you an in-depth analysis of the Polesworth property's general condition in addition to advice on defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

Damage resulting from flooding

We understand this property is located in a low lying area. Is there a major flood risk? Would our house surveyor look for any flooding?

Heavy rain, drains blocked with sewage or soil and burst pipes can cause water damage caused by flooding, and the value of a property can decrease if in an exposed area, even if it has never flooded. Your RICS surveyor may use several methods to determine if the Polesworth home in question is in danger, and a property surveyor will advise on repairs or preventative measures. An awareness of characteristics of the Polesworth area likely to affect the home also enables the building surveyor to advise flooding may be a risk. Also included on Environment Agency's flood alert are details of local rivers and other bodies of water prone to flooding.

Stone block wall damage

Do stone-walled properties cause issues for the buyer? Are there any related issues that need to be investigated, and what does the survey cover?

Britain's varied geology has encouraged the use of many varieties of stone, from Golconda Dolomitic Limestone to Totternhoe Limestone. Defects affecting stone-built homes can vary, deteriorating mortar being relatively common. Bear in mind that some defects will affect regular or irregularly cut stone equally, whereas others will not, and may require a local surveyors expertise to identify. Different stone types will also decay a different rates based on environmental conditions.

For example, limestones such as Bath stone or Kentish Rag will deteriorate when exposed to the elements. Property surveys should give some repair guidance, like.

Building Surveys on houses

What are the advantages to commission a full structural survey instead of a HomeBuyer Report?

Full Structural Surveys do not exist now Building Survey has now superseded it. When buying an altered property e.g. an unloved Polesworth house, this is now the right RICS survey to complete. The HomeBuyer Report will suffice for a mid 20th century of later Polesworth house of standard construction materials. Following a thorough visual inspection of the accessible parts, a formal written report will be provided to the client detailing comprehensive and far-reaching details about the construction materials used on the building. There will be certain provisos with any residential survey as a RICS surveyor will not be able to open up the fabric of the of the Polesworth property for example removing roof space contents. See the survey differences article for a simple guide on property surveys.
