HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to have a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a home in Stocksfield and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey, although it is effectively the same.

If the Stocksfield property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make any major works, RICS advise you opt for a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap however it will give you a thorough analysis of the Stocksfield property's general condition as well as advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

Deteriorated timber

In a Stocksfield HomeBuyer Report what does 'E8 - Other joinery and finishes' cover?

An example of this is rotted wood sidings. They are visually inspected with the aid of binoculars where appropriate The condition of decorations to all joinery elements are reported on.

The format of the RICS HomeBuyer Report is clear and easy to read. As buyers in Stocksfield are unlikely to be experts in local building techniques and materials themselves, the report is written with as little jargon as possible. The surveyor uses a scale between 1 and 3 to show the impact on the property individual defects may have. In some cases, an

element covered under Section E may be marked as NI, or 'Not inspected'. Irrespective of standardised format of the report, your surveyor will provide a bespoke report, tailored to your particular concerns.

What warnings would you give for houses built from Dutch bond brick? Does render make a difference?
