Home Buyers Survey in Arkley

HomeBuyer Report

Should I choose a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a house in Arkley and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey, however it is essentially the same.

If the Arkley property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out substantial modifications on the property, it would be better that you commission a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap however it will give an in-depth analysis of the Arkley property's state of repair as well as an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

Building Surveys on houses

Should I upgrade to the full structural survey when considering a un-loved fifties home in Arkley instead of a HomeBuyer Report?

Often still called a Full Structural Survey by some, it is no longer available has actually been superseded by RICS and the right term is now the Building Survey.

The HomeBuyer Report goes into enough detail if buying a post 1950s unmodified Arkley house of conventional building materials. The Building Survey is the suitable survey to go for the property described. Two to three days after an exhaustive inspection of the accessible areas of the house, the RICS surveyors report will be sent to the buyer detailing any far-reaching details concerning the construction materials used on the property. There are certain limitations with a Building Survey to bear in mind because a chartered surveyor wont be able to open up the fabric of the of the Arkley house, an example being lifting up fitted carpets. The following table for further information on survey specifics.
