About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Avery Hill

HomeBuyer Report

Should we get a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a home in Avery Hill and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, although it is effectively the same comprehensive survey.

If the Avery Hill property is a flat or maisonette, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any substantial modifications, you should you commission a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap, however it does give a thorough analysis of the Avery Hill property's condition as well as advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

External walls

On a HomeBuyer Report carried out in Avery Hill, what impact can a an amber light rating have on main walls?

Defects which need some attention are rated 'amber' or condition rating 2. The condition of this particular aspect of the property is unlikely to require urgent work, however. The format of the RICS HomeBuyer Report is clear and easy to read, unlike some more complex survey reports. Green, orange and red ratings are an indication of how serious the issues which the surveyor has discovered actually are.

A fairly common example may be a missing lintel element. The surveyor's report on the condition of the external walls will consider all visible defects. Observations on the Damp Proof Course are also reported here.

House Prices
