Home Buyers Survey in Twyford

HomeBuyer Report

Should we have a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a property in Twyford and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey but is essentially the same level of survey.

If the Twyford property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make any major works, RICS recommend you carry out a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap, however it will give you exhaustive analysis of the Twyford property's general condition as well as advice on defects and maintenance options .

Traditionally built property

What do I need to pay attention to when purchasing a house built in around 1770? What consequences will the building's unusual construction have on upkeep?

Many buyers in Twyford would like to own a home with character. Vernacular, or traditional, architecture, however, can be a cause of concern for would-be buyers. Homes built with traditional or "vernacular" techniques can be a chore to maintain. You should bear in mind that specialist knowledge may be needed. Materials suitable for the work may also need to be sourced, particularly in the case of listed property. This may increase the importance of getting a comprehensive building survey. As an example of Medieval building, Marwell Hall in Twyford was constructed in around 1291.

Deteriorated timber

In the HomeBuyer Report what are the usual a green light rating defects affecting 'E8 - Other joinery and finishes' ?

Problems impacting the roof are checked here. These are inspected with the aid of binoculars where appropriate Importantly, the possible use of asbestos components are reported on. Bulging stucco render is an example.

RICS HomeBuyer Reports are transparent, detailed surveys of residential property. As buyers in Twyford are unlikely to be experts in local building techniques and materials themselves, the report is written with as little jargon as possible. Your property surveyor will mark each aspect of the property included in Section E with either a green, orange or red rating, to indicate to what extent any problems or notable points may negatively impact the property. A 'green' condition rating of 1 confirms that no repairs are required, but maintenance may still be necessary. Some areas may be marked as 'Not inspected'. Where the surveyor is unable to gain access to some areas, e.g. the roof of a block of flats, these aspects of the report will not be completed.
