HomeBuyer Report

Should I select a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a property in Tilbury and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey but is basically the same the same.

If the Tilbury property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction, then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any significant alterations on the Tilbury property, you should you opt for a Building Survey instead. This option is not as cheap, however it does offer an in-depth analysis of the Tilbury property's state of repair as well as more detailed advice on defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

Building Surveys on houses

I am investing in a converted Victorian end of terrace property, should I get a full structural survey?

The Full Structural Survey is now known as a Building Survey. If you are buying an unconventional Tilbury property e.g. a property in poor condition house - this is the correct survey. The written report outlines comprehensive and salient information in relation to the homes construction and uses along with any maintenance needs after a thorough inspection of the inside and outside of the house. Permanent outside buildings should be reported on on the Tilbury property survey.

Damage caused by high rainfall

Is rain an issue in Tilbury? Will the house surveyor in Tilbury report on this? We're concerned about replacement costs.

Both in Tilbury, and throughout the county, rain is so common that buyers rarely think about it. Unfortunately this issue is not given enough thought by house purchasers. For instance, mildew in the attic may indicate that the drainage systems are worth a closer look. Poor drainage can lead to lasting damage to the fabric of a home.

In most cases, guttering issues are usually easy to resolve for a reasonable cost. However, if the drains are left untreated, the resulting damage can lower the value of the property and become increasing harder to repair.

Conservatory

In a Tilbury HomeBuyer Report, what are common a green light rating defects for conservatory and porches?

Green, or condition rating 1, indicates that no repair is currently needed. Nevertheless, the surveyor may still recommend that regular upkeep is carried out. RICS HomeBuyer Reports are transparent, detailed surveys of residential property, unlike less prescriptive surveys. These may offer more complex detail, but they are also less useful for home buyers in Tilbury deciding whether or not to purchase a residence. Your property surveyor will mark each aspect of the property included in Section E with either a green, orange or red rating, to indicate the seriousness of any issues included in the survey. An example defect for this is a missing step up into a house. E7 elements are visually inspected. Building regulations and issues relating to correct planning approval are considered (e.g. is it a conservatory, an extension, or a 'sun room'?) will also be mentioned in the report.
