Home Buyers Survey in Dickens Heath

HomeBuyer Report

Should I select a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a home in Dickens Heath and which one is cheaper?

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

If the Dickens Heath property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any an extension, RICS recommend you select a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap, but it will give exhaustive analysis of the Dickens Heath property's general condition as well as including advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

Building Surveys on houses

When acquiring a modified regency mid terrace home, is it best to upgrade to a full structural survey?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey.

The HomeBuyer Report is appropriate for a 60 year old or less Dickens Heath property built out of typical construction materials and methods. The Building Survey is the correct survey for the house mentioned. Around 3 days following an exhaustive inspection of the inside and outside of the house, the chartered surveyors report will be forwarded to the prospective purchaser giving in depth and notable insight about the construction and uses of the house. There are certain limitations with a property survey to consider insofar as a surveyor will not be able to force or open up the fabric of the Dickens Heath building e.g. moving heavy furniture.

Deteriorated timber

For a HomeBuyer Report on a Dickens Heath home what effect will a Condition rating 2 have on 'E8 - Other joinery and finishes' ?

This section includes visual aspects of the roof, checked with the aid of binoculars where appropriate. Ornamental joinery such as finials or mock Tudor panelling will be investigated. Buckled or undulating metal sidings, for example, is included in Section E. 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. RICS created the HomeBuyer Report to give home buyers a clear and easy to read report on the condition of the home they plan to buy, unlike less prescriptive surveys. These may offer more complex detail, but they are also less useful for home buyers deciding whether or not to purchase a Dickens Heath residence. Green, orange and red ratings are an indication of the severity of defects uncovered during the survey.
