HomeBuyer Report

Should we choose a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a property in Rush Green and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, although it is basically the same the same survey.

If the Rush Green property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any alterations, RICS advise you select a Building Survey instead. The Building Survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it will give you comprehensive details of the Rush Green property's condition along with advice on defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

Damage caused by high rainfall

Is rain an issue in Rush Green? Where there are problems, what should we do?

I find it odd that heavy rainfall and the effect it can have on your home are not given more thought by home buyers. Signs that drainage systems are a cause for concern include rotten roofing elements, and may lead to water damage. That is not to say that drainage problems should cause you to reconsider a purchase. They are usually a simple matter to repair, if identified early.

Traditionally built property

My partner and I are buying a 17th Century renovated farmhouse in Rush Green. What should be budgeted for regular maintenance?

Many buyers in Rush Green would be interested in owning a house with personality, like a period conversion. Vernacular, or traditional, architecture, however, can concern buyers. Rush Green property constructed with traditional or "vernacular" techniques can be a drain to maintain. You should bear in mind that specialist knowledge may be needed. Especially for listed property, Materials suitable for the work may be required.

Building Surveys on houses

Should I opt for the full structural survey when investing in a neglected period bungalow near Rush Green instead of a HomeBuyer Report?

They are often called a Structural Survey by agents and buyers alike, this survey is no longer available and this most technical survey has been replaced by the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors and the correct term is actually now the Building Survey. Go for a Building Survey if you are planning to buy the house referred to. The HomeBuyer Report is detailed enough for a post 1950s unmodified house built out of typical building materials. Be aware that certain caveats are integral with any survey as a qualified RICS surveyor will not be able to (unless safe to do so) force or open up the structure of the house for example, or assess the serviceability of energy sources.
