Your Building Survey Options

Nick King Associates offer the following two types of Home Survey, 
namely the RICS HomeBuyer Report and the Building Survey (Structural Survey).

The RICS HomeBuyer Report

The RICS HomeBuyer Report is suitable for houses, flats and bungalows which are built from common building materials and in reasonable condition. It focuses on the condition of the property by setting out the following: 
  • Clear ‘traffic light’ ratings of the condition of different parts of the building, services, garage and outbuildings, showing problems that require varying degrees of attention
  • A summary of the risks to the condition of the building 
  • Other matters including guarantees, planning and building control issues for your legal advisers
  • The surveyors professional opinion of the “Market Value” of the property 
  • An insurance reinstatement figure for the property
  • A list of problems that the surveyor considers may affect the value of the property
  • Advice on repairs and ongoing maintenance
  • Issues that need to be investigated to prevent serious damage or dangerous conditions
  • Legal issues that need to be addressed before completing your conveyancing
  • Information on location, local environment and the recorded energy efficiency (where available)

The Building Survey (Structural Survey) 

Formerly called a Structural Survey, you could choose the Building Survey if you are dealing with a large, older or rundown property, a building that is unusual or altered, or if you are planning major works. It costs more than the RICS HomeBuyer Survey because it gives detailed information about the structure and fabric of the property. It includes:
  • A thorough inspection and detailed report on a wider range of issues
  • A description of visible defects and potential problems caused by hidden flaws
  • An outline of repair options and the likely consequences of inactivity; and
  • Advice for your legal advisers and details of serious risks and dangerous conditions

A Building Survey does not include a valuation although we will be able to provide this as an extra service should you require.
