Home Buyers Survey in Loddon

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to get a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a property in Loddon and of the 3, which one is the cheapest?

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

If the Loddon property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out substantial modifications, RICS advise you commission a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap but it will offer an in-depth analysis of the Loddon property's general condition in addition to more detailed advice on defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

Overgrown flat roof with weeds

In a Loddon HomeBuyer Report, what might a Condition rating 3 mean for roof coverings?

Serious concerns are marked as condition rating 3. 'Red' defects may also need further investigation by a qualified specialist before a full assessment can be made. RICS HomeBuyer Reports are transparent, detailed surveys of residential property, with a minimum of technical jargon. Colour coded ratings are used to communicate how concerning each aspect of the report is.

As part of Section E2, these elements are checked, provided that access is possible. If it is not possible to properly access this area for inspection (if, for example, the property is a flat), the surveyor will make note of this in their report. Signs of ridging or fishmouths is an example.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

The home we plan to purchase is built on clay soil. Will the Home Survey look into this, and what defects will be reported on?

Clay soil is related to a handful of potentially severe defects. Specific issues include movement of clay soil layers resulting from changes in their water content. There may be little evidence of underlying defects. For example, cracked plaster may be benign, or a clue prompting a more thorough investigation. When performing your Home Buyers Survey in Loddon, your surveyor will consider the impact the soil composition has had, and may have, on the house. The building foundations may need extra support in some cases. A surveyor can confirm if this is necessary, as it can be a lengthy process.

Building Surveys on houses

Can you please explain the justification to order the full structural survey when acquiring a doer-upper mid terrace property near Loddon rather than a HomeBuyer Report?

Although regularly described as Full Structural Surveys by many agents and buyers these comprehensive surveys are now entitled Building Surveys Choose a RICS Building Survey in the case of the property mentioned. A HomeBuyer Report is detailed enough if buying a mid 20th century of later unmodified house made out of typical building materials. Bear in mind that a number limitations exist with the survey because a RICS surveyor cannot, unless safe to do so and with consent from the owner, force or open up the structure of the property of assess heating installations.
