Designed by the RICS as a cost effective method of minimising risk, the Homebuyer Report is designed to provide buyers with enough information to make a reasoned and informed decision on whether to proceed with their purchase. We find that this is the most popular type of report.
The report covers the building inside and outside, the services and the site. It includes specific sections on all the main elements including roofs, walls, floors and joinery. Each element is given a condition rating for easy reference:
• Condition rating: No repair is currently needed. The property must be maintained in the normal way.
• Condition rating : Defects that need repairing or replacing but are not considered to be either serious or urgent. The property must be maintained in the normal way.
• Condition rating: Defects that are serious and/or need to be repaired, replaced or investigated urgently.
Property related risks including movement, dampness and timber defects are also summarised in their own section.
In addition the report contains both a current Market Value and a Re-building Cost Assessment for insurance purposes.
