Home Buyers Survey in Long Melford

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to choose a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a home in Long Melford 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 Long Melford property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any significant alterations, it would be better that you go for a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it does give you exhaustive analysis of the Long Melford property's general condition as well as including an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

Conservatory

For a HomeBuyer Report on a Long Melford house or flat what can 'E7' refer to?

Quite a common example is spalling, cracked and damaged walls or columns of a porch's structure. Section E7 defects include those affect any porch or conservatory attached to the home. Building regulations and issues relating to correct planning approval are considered (e.g. is it a conservatory, an extension, or a 'sun room'?) should also be reported on. The RICS HomeBuyer Report is designed to be user-friendly, unlike less prescriptive surveys. These may offer more complex detail, but they are also less useful for purchasers deciding whether or not to purchase a home. The report employs 'traffic light' ratings of red, amber and green to what extent each defect requires attention. Parts of the report which do not apply to the specific residence being surveyed will be indicated with a 'NI', or 'not inspected'. RICS have mandated a specific format for the HomeBuyer Report to aid the creation of a useful and comprehensive report for both surveyors and home buyers. As a result, some sections may not be relevant to every property, such as reporting on the condition of the roof of a ground floor flat.
