RICS Home Surveys Information Sheet
Building/ Structural Surveys
There was evidence of beetle infestations, dampness, rusting steel and lack of parking arrangements. Further investigation before exchange of contracts was suggested for all of these matters due to the high cost of remedial works. Our surveyors were particuarly concerned by humping of a concrete floor as mortgage surveyors might make the property unsuitable for lending purposes.
This property was of concrete panel construction. At a later date the substandard panels had been removed and replaced with brick. The property had a leaning chimney, cold concrete floor and missing stair rails
The roof of the property was covered with moss which had blocked the gutters casuing water damage. The roof conversion had limitd insulation and ground floor skirting boards were rotten.
A full description of the property including measurements of the structural elements to ensure that the structure of the property is understood.
A list of all the major elements of the property and services with a comment as to condition, urgency and suggestions as to methods and costs of repairs if appropriate.
Investigations that should be undertaken by legal advisers before exchange of contracts
A summary of items requiring either urgent repair of further investigation identification of serious risks to the property and people.
A market valuation and insurance reinstatement cost can be added if required.
Due to the time taken to measure the property Building Surveys cost considerably more than the Homebuyers Report, however you should bear in mind that they are unlikely to tell you any more information about serious defects to the property than the Homebuyers Report.
It is considered that the Homebuyers Report will be suitable for most clients.
