Home Buyer Report and Structural Surveys 

We’ve said on other pages of this website that buying a house is likely to be the most expensive purchase that you ever make. You will not expect to lose money during the period of that house being your property. You can’t rely on the current owner or the Estate Agent to provide guarantees as to the sound structure, only a qualified surveyor can tell you about the condition of the building. 
If you would like us to, we can recommend Chartered Surveyors, all of them are registered with the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors (RICS). 
Homebuyer Report 
Conducted by a RICS qualified surveyor, a Homebuyer Report uses a traffic light ratings system that is easy to understand, so you can see the property’s condition and any areas of concern. It is based on a detailed visual inspection of the property. Comments will include: 
The condition of the property 
Guidance for legal advisers 
Any defects, their urgency and impact on property valuation 
Market valuation 
Insuancere-build cost 
Building Survey 
This is more comprehensive than a Homebuyer Report and provides in detail information about the condition of the property you wish to purchase. 
You may want to consider a building survey if the property is older (50 years plus), is not a conventional design, is not built of common building materials or if you are planning to undertake major works. The building survey will give more in-depth analysis of the property’s condition as well detailed advice on defects, repairs and maintenance issues.
