Home Buyers Survey in Melksham

HomeBuyer Report

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

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey but is effectively the same survey.

If the Melksham property is a flat, or is an older property, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any significant alterations, RICS advise you carry out a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap, but it will give a more detailed analysis of the Melksham property's general condition as well as including an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

For the Melksham HomeBuyer Report, what effect will a green light rating have on rainwater pipes and gutters?

A 'green' condition rating of 1 confirms that no repairs are required, but this does not mean that no future work is required. Seasonal checks may still be appropriate to prevent deterioration. The RICS HomeBuyer Report is designed to be user-friendly. As buyers in Melksham are unlikely to be experts in local building techniques and materials themselves, the report is written with as little jargon as possible. Red, amber and green ratings give home buyers indicate the seriousness of any issues included in the survey. In Melksham, examples include downspouts discharging onto the roof. They are visually inspected. Other related matters are found elsewhere in the HomeBuyer Report suspected issues relating to a combined heating and water system.
