Home Buyers Survey in Barrow upon Humber

HomeBuyer Report

Should I opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a property in Barrow upon Humber and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey but is effectively the same survey.

If the Barrow upon Humber property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make any alterations, it would be better that you opt for a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap but it will give you exhaustive analysis of the Barrow upon Humber property's general condition in addition to advice on structural defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

External walls

In the HomeBuyer Report can you give some examples of an red light rating defects for 'E4 - Main walls' ?

Note that concealed elements will not be considered. If hidden issues with the walls or foundations are suspected, a more comprehensive structural survey may be advised. Damp proofing, including the DPC, is also included here. Rot, fire or insect damage to a lintel, for example, would be reported here. The RICS HomeBuyer Report is designed to be user-friendly. Three colour coded ratings give an understanding of how serious the issues which the surveyor has discovered actually are. A condition rating of three is used to emphasise the most crucial repairs. 'Red' defects may also need further investigation by a qualified specialist before a full assessment can be made. In some cases, an element covered under Section E may be marked as NI, or '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.
