Homebuyer Report


A Homebuyer’s Report, is a survey done to a standard format set out by Royal Institution
of Chartered Surveyors– it’s most suitable for conventional properties built within the last 100 years, which are in reasonable condition.  It doesn’t detail every aspect of the property, and only focuses on urgent matters needing attention. It’s not usually suitable for properties in need of renovation, or if you’re planning major alterations.

 

Building Survey

A Building Survey is a comprehensive inspection of a property. It’s suitable for all properties, especially:

  •       Listed buildings
  •       Older properties,
  •       Buildings constructed in an unusual way, however old they are
  •       Properties you plan to renovate oralter in any way
  •       Properties that have had extensivealterations.

It examines all accessible parts of the property – and you can ask to have specific areas included, so it covers any particular concerns you have about the building.  A Building Survey doesn’t usually include a valuation, but we can provide this separately if you need one.
