Home buyer Surveys – Encompass Surveyors

Home buyer Survey Report

When buying a new property it can be very difficult to know exactly how much work there is to do and the investment involved. Encompass Surveyors can help you by providing a home buyer survey also referred to as a home buyer Report or home survey for the property you are hoping to purchase.

What are the benefits of a home buyer survey?

Homebuyer surveys could save you a lot of money later on because of unexpected issues, repair costs and upheaval that the work will cause. A homebuyer survey will always find some problems with such areas as electrical installation,  roof, heating system, damp issues etc.

What are the different types of home buyer reports?

  • RICS Condition Report is a basic condition report to identify risks, legal issues and work that is urgent. It is sufficient if the property is a new-build or a home in very good condition but will not include advice.
  • RICS Home Buyer Report is more comprehensive and will highlight structural problems such as damp or subsidence. It can be very useful in negotiating the price of the property.
  • RICS Building Survey is especially needed on older properties include the inspections described above  and goes in to detail. The in-depth building survey report highlight the issues and provide advice on defects, repairs and maintenance.

A full building survey or full structural survey may also be required or if the property is new a new-build snagging survey would be advised.
