HomeBuyer Report

Should we have a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a home in Abridge and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, although it is effectively the same level of survey.

If the Abridge property is a flat, or is an older property, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials, you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make any major works, RICS advise you go for a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap but it will give you a more detailed analysis of the Abridge property's general condition in addition to more detailed advice on defects , repairs and maintenance options .

Timber damage by insect larvae

We are buying in Abridge, and think we saw signs of an infestation in the dining room. Do we need a chartered surveyor?

Buyers should be aware that there is no legal obligation for a seller to report on an infestation. This issue should be taken seriously. An affected home may not always be easy to identify, silverfish are common in damp kitchens and bathrooms, but only appear at night, and can therefore be difficult to spot. Remedies to a serious infestation can include professional cleaning or removal or excision of affected timber.

Gas flame

Does the RICS surveyor advise on the serviceability of the gas appliances?

Your qualified RICS surveyor will visually inspect the easily accessible parts of the system. The survey will include the routing of any gas pipes at the home, in addition to gas related gas installations in the house, for instance chimney linings. A Abridge surveyor will not remove the gas fittings and he or she won't run any tests on the gas system. Gas can be hazardous, if you have any worries relating to gas installations, call a gas engineer.

Roof defects identified during a survey

Mould brings up bad memories for us. Will access to the roof be difficult to arrange?

Abridge houses that are otherwise ideal can often hide roofing problems, such as. All parts of the roof must be considered during the survey. This can include anything from ceiling joists to sheathing. Factors like amateur repairs are particularly troublesome for flat roofed property.

Re-flashing and re-tiling, among other aspects of roof repair, need not always be costly, but they should be budgeted for carefully. A building survey prior to exchange is highly recommended, so that you fully understand what expenses you will be facing. It may be advisable to source an estimate for any work prior to exchange.
