Building Survey Overview
A Building Survey is the most thorough and detailed report that you can commission on the condition of a property. The survey is usually carried out by a Chartered Surveyor who will be a member of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) in which case he or she will have the letters MRICS or FRICS after his or her name. The RICS ensures that all its members maintain professional standards in their work. When commissioning a Chartered Surveyor to carry out a survey you should be able to feel confident that the results will be appropriate for your needs.
What is a Home buyer Survey?
A homebuyer survey covers a couple of different types of survey, so you need to make sure you know what you want before placing any orders.
A HomeBuyer Report (which can also include a valuation as an addition) is provided by RICS approved Surveyors. This will not include as much detail as a Building Survey, but typically does highlight anything that will have a affect on the value of the property or anything that will require further attention. it only covers areas that can be seen without having to take any further action – so they will not drill into walls or lift up carpets..
A Homebuyer Survey could be provided by a non-RICS registered Surveyor, or by a Home Inspector or Energy Assessor. This does not have a standard format, and so you will really need to discuss your requirements prior to the commencement of any work to make sure you are getting everything you need.
