About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Southmead

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to select a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a house in Southmead and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey, although it is effectively the same level of survey.

If the Southmead property is a flat or maisonette, or is a period property, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make alterations, it would be better that you book a Building Survey instead. This more detailed survey is less cheap, but it does give comprehensive details of the Southmead property's condition in addition to advice on defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

Defective door frame

On a HomeBuyer Report carried out in Southmead what might a green light rating mean for 'E6 - Outside doors' ?

Outside doors are to be opened and closed if keys are present, but they cannot otherwise be forced open. Broadly speaking, the type and condition of the property's windows are included in the report. Lintels which are sagging or missing above doors is an example. RICS created the HomeBuyer Report to give buyers a clear and easy to read report on the condition of the home they plan to buy. Three colour coded ratings give an understanding of how serious the issues which the surveyor has discovered actually are. Green (condition rating 1) is the best possible assessment, and confirms that this part of the house or flat is in a good state. Nevertheless, the surveyor may still recommend that regular upkeep is carried out.
