Home Buyers Survey in Syston

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to have a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a property in Syston and which would be cheaper?

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

If the Syston property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any major works, you should you book a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it does provide you with comprehensive details of the Syston property's general condition in addition to an opinion on defects , repairs as well as maintenance options .

Damage caused by high rainfall

How important is it that we consider rainwater goods? Will the house surveyor in Syston report on this? Can damaged rainwater goods decrease our property's value?

I find it odd that this issue is rarely paid due attention by purchasers. If you have only visited the new home in on a dry day, problems are unlikely to be visible. That is not to say that drainage problems should cause you to reconsider a purchase. They are usually a simple matter to remedy. However, if the drains are not cared for, the resulting damage can lower the value of the property and become increasing harder to repair.

Other external areas of the property

For the Syston HomeBuyer Report what are the usual Condition Rating 1 defects affecting 'E9 - Other' ?

The part of the HomeBuyer Report mentions other aspects which do not fit into the other categories. Leaning, settled and heaved columns forming the structure of a conservatory or porch is one example. The home buyer report is intended to be easy to read and understand. The surveyor uses a scale between 1 and 3 to show how concerning each aspect of the report is. A rating of 1 is the highest, meaning that this aspect of the residence being surveyed does not need urgent attention. However, frequent maintenance could still be needed.

Building Surveys on apartments

Should I pay more for a full structural survey when considering an apartment in Syston?

Building Survey is the new name for the Structural Survey following its new title in 2010 by RICS. The HomeBuyer Report is detailed enough for a mid century or later unmodified property built out of typical construction materials and methods i.e. brick and tile. A Building Survey is definitely the proper selection for the apartment mentioned.

Typically a couple of days after a thorough site survey of the accessible areas of the house, a formal report will be emailed (pdf format) and posted to the client detailing thorough and crucial professional advice about the construction materials used on the house. There are several restrictions with any survey insofar as a qualified RICS surveyor is not able to force or open up the fabric of the Syston apartment such as removing loft contents.
