Home Buyers Survey in Crowthorne

HomeBuyer Report

Should we choose a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a house in Crowthorne and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey and is essentially the same.

If the Crowthorne property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any an extension on the Crowthorne property, RICS advise you select a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap however it does offer comprehensive details of the Crowthorne property's general condition as well as including advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Damage resulting from flooding

We're planning to purchase in Crowthorne. Is there a flood risk, and will the property surveyor investigate flooding, or if other properties have been affected?

The lives of many owners in Crowthorne and across the UK have been seriously affected by flood damage. If you are planning to buy in a flood-affected area, a HomeBuyer Report will inform your decision. A flood warning service, with regular updates, is operated by the Environment Agency.

Flooding can increase the likelihood of water entering a residence, such as via landscaping or paved areas sloping towards the property. The HomeBuyer Report will also include details of any evidence of historical flooding, and may comment generally about the area's propensity to flood, the data used to compile third-party flood assessments also takes into account flood defences and historic claims.

Window frame

In the HomeBuyer Report, what impact can a Condition rating 2 have on windows?

The format of the RICS HomeBuyer Report is clear and easy to read, with a minimum of technical jargon. Green, orange and red ratings are an indication of the seriousness of any issues included in the survey. Issues requiring some attention are labelled condition rating 2, but they are not considered to be urgent or serious. They may also require frequent upkeep. One example would be a rotted sash window. Where practicable, all windows are to be opened and closed, but not forced open, and vulnerable areas closely examined. The surveyor should make notes and advise the client whether it is possible to operate the window transoms/openings satisfactorily.

Shocking Electrics

When I visited the home I expect to purchase, I noticed that there is an unsafe electrical system, does a surveyor go into detail on electrical system condition?

When conducting a Crowthorne Homebuyer Report a RICS surveyor will typically remark on the electrical system if it looks like the electrics are in a hazardous state.

This should include a non invasive view of the unconcealed sections of the wiring, fusebox etc. as well as concerns such as checking the condition of visible wiring. Looking at any evidence of a test on the condition of the electrical wiring conducted by a suitably qualified electrician will usually form part of the Homebuyer report in Crowthorne. Ascertaining the whereabouts of any documents from a test on the condition of the electrical installations handled by a suitably qualified electrician on the property being surveyed should usually form part of the survey.

The IEE suggest a Periodic Inspection Report be completed every 10 years (5 if renting out).
