Home Buyers Survey in Cotgrave

HomeBuyer Report

Should I have a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a property in Cotgrave and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey but is basically the same the same survey.

If the Cotgrave property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any works or an extension, RICS recommend you opt for a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap however it does provide you with exhaustive analysis of the Cotgrave property's condition as well as more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

St Mary'S Church is a scheduled monument considered to be of national importance. Monuments of local interest can certainly enhance the desirability of an area.

Building Surveys on houses

Is it worth paying more for a full structural survey, as opposed to a Homebuyer Report when considering Edwardian house in Cotgrave?

Building Survey has taken over the Full Structural Survey following its reclassification a couple of years ago by the RICS. You should get the Building Survey in relation to the house you are contemplating. The HomeBuyer Report goes into enough detail for a 60 year old or less unmodified house built out of conventional construction materials and methods. Be aware that certain limitations come with any survey as a Cotgrave surveyor will not be able to open up the structure of the building of look into the internal condition of chimneys.

Other external areas of the property

For the Cotgrave HomeBuyer Report what are the usual Condition Rating 1 defects affecting 'E9 - Other' ?

One example issue could be external wooden steps which are in contact with the soil. This category is used for external elements that require reporting which do not fit into the other categories. A 'green' condition rating of 1 confirms that no repairs are required, but regular upkeep may still be required.
