About Us

Home Buyers Survey in West Bromwich

HomeBuyer Report

Should I select a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a home in West Bromwich and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, however it is essentially the same.

If the West Bromwich property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any substantial modifications, RICS recommend you book a Building Survey. This option is less cheap however it does give you exhaustive analysis of the West Bromwich property's state of repair and it includes information on defects as well as maintenance options .

Other external areas of the property

On a HomeBuyer Report carried out in West Bromwich, what effect can a an red light rating have on factors covered in Section E?

The home buyer report is intended to be easy to read and understand, and avoid potentially unfamiliar technical language. The report uses colour coded condition ratings to give home buyers a clear understanding of how serious the issues which the surveyor has discovered actually are. Red, or condition rating 3, defects are serious, or require immediate attention. In some cases, such a rating may indicate further expert opinion is needed before an accurate statement can be given. Miscellaneous external elements are including here that do not sit comfortably elsewhere in section E. Your surveyor can provide more details if required. Settlement or other movement in a conservatory, for example, would be reported here.

You should be aware that specialist knowledge may be needed. Especially for property in a conservation area, Traditional materials may be required. Discuss this with the West Bromwich surveyor for more detail. Built between 1269 and 1293, Manor House is an example of a traditional hall in West Bromwich.

Unapproved extensions that do not have Local Authority approval will also be commented on but these are really more a investigated by your lawyer.
