HomeBuyer Report

Should I opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a house in Kelsall and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey, although it is basically the same the same.

If the Kelsall property is an apartment, or is a period property, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make any alterations, RICS recommend you go for a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap however it will give you a thorough analysis of the Kelsall property's general condition and it includes advice on structural defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

Chimney stacks

On a Kelsall HomeBuyer Report what does 'E1' refer to?

Elements of the property reviewed by Section E are reviewed by eye if access to the roof cannot be arranged. No drip edge on the chimney cap is an example of a Section E defect.

The format of the RICS HomeBuyer Report is clear and easy to read, unlike less prescriptive surveys. These may offer more complex detail, but they are also less useful for buyers in Kelsall deciding whether or not to purchase a property. Green, orange and red ratings are an indication of to what extent each defect requires attention.

Irrelevant subsections of the HomeBuyer Report, like an assessment of a conservatory where the home in question does not have one, are disregarded.

Damage resulting from flooding

Will our Kelsall home buyers survey search for water damage?

Recent conflict between insurers has the government has caused a great deal of uncertainty, and it is not clear that reasonably-priced flooding insurance will be available in years to come.

Your RICS surveyor may use several methods to determine if the home in Kelsall in question is in danger. In addition, the property survey may make recommendations for repair work or improved flood protection.

The GroundSure Flood Report is one of several risk screening reports designed to provide an overview of whether a residence lies within an area of potential or previous flood risk. The residential surveyor may ask the vendor or agent if the residence has previously flooded. Note that the response to such enquires should not be exclusively relied upon.
