A tributary of the River Blythe runs through Solihull which means some properties may be subject to flood alerts from time to time. This includes streets such as Ladbrook Road, Alderwood Place and Blytheway.

What’s the difference between a HomeBuyer Report and a Building Survey?

When it comes to property surveys for home buyers there are two main choices.

The first is the RICS HomeBuyer Report; this survey is specifically designed for post-1950s flats/bungalows/maisonettes or houses of standard construction. The report uses a 'traffic light' format to indicate the opinion of the surveyor on the various aspects of the building under consideration. The HomeBuyer Report includes a current market valuation as standard which can be used to compare with your property's agreed asking price.

The second option is the RICS Building Survey; this survey is reserved for older and larger properties that may have had the original fabric of the property altered or have unique features (i.e. a thatched roof). It is the most detailed visual inspection that can be carried out.

While it doesn’t include the property valuation that comes as standard with a HomeBuyer Report, many surveyors will often include in it an estimate of the cost of works for maintenance or upgrades to help with repairs or renovation to the property.
