Home Buyers Survey in Tiverton

HomeBuyer Report

Should I have a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a house in Tiverton and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey but is essentially the same comprehensive survey.

If the Tiverton property is a flat, or is an older property, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials, you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any major works, RICS recommend you select a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it does offer exhaustive analysis of the Tiverton property's general condition as well as including an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

Gas flame

Does the qualified RICS surveyor examine the safety of the gas appliances?

Your surveyor will visually inspect any accessible parts of the gas system. This means things like the location of the meter at the property, as well as gas associated installations such as fixed external ventilation hearths. Fittings or covers won't actually be taken off. Needless to say, gas can be deadly, should there be any concerns about gas fittings, call a gas engineer.

Traditionally built property

I am purchasing an older renovated farmhouse in Tiverton. What should be budgeted for maintenance?

Some buyers have considered buying a old, characterful home one day. For traditionally-built Tiverton property, age, however, can be problematic. Structures featuring traditional methods can be surprisingly expensive to maintain. You should bear in mind that specialist knowledge may be needed. Especially for property in a conservation area, Materials suitable for the work may be required. This may create disruption for new owners.

Overgrown flat roof with weeds

On a HomeBuyer Report carried out in Tiverton, what will 'E2' cover?

RICS HomeBuyer Reports are transparent, detailed surveys of residential property. As buyers in Tiverton are unlikely to be experts in local building techniques and materials themselves, the report is written with as little jargon as possible. The report employs 'traffic light' ratings of red, amber and green the impact on the property individual defects may have. Not inspected' is used to indicate those subsections of Section E which do not apply to the house or flat. If a house or flat does not have a porch or conservatory, for example, these aspects of the report will be omitted.

An example of this is debris on the roof. Roof coverings, including flat and sloped roofs are checked, provided that access is possible.
