HomeBuyer Report

Should we choose a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a home in Alfriston and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same.

If the Alfriston property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make significant alterations on the property, RICS recommend you choose a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap however it does give an in-depth analysis of the Alfriston property's state of repair and it includes advice on structural defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

Damage resulting from flooding

We are intending to purchase a ground floor flat in Alfriston, does the chartered surveyor investigate flood damage?

The lives of many owners in Alfriston and across the UK have suffered as a result of flooding damage. If you are planning to buy in a flood-affected area, a HomeBuyer Report will inform your decision. It is strongly recommended that a home is protected, before flooding occurs. In addition, the HomeBuyer Report may offer advice to limit damage in the event of flooding.Less expensive preventative measures include door guards, the data used to compile third-party flood assessments also takes into account flood defences and historic claims.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

We are buying in Alfriston, and the property's foundations have been built on clay soil. Will a Alfriston Property Survey look into this?

Clay soil is related to a handful of potentially severe defects. Specific problems include soil movement, capable of irreparably damaging a home if untreated. Defects can be obvious to the naked eye, or may remain undiscovered (and therefore untreated) for years. If present, expansive clay soil can put lateral pressure on a Alfriston property's foundations, forcing them inward. When performing your Home Buyers Survey in Alfriston, your surveyor will consider the impact the soil composition has had, and may have, on the property. If you are particularly concerned about a crack or other sign of movement, the surveyor can also report on whether it is recent, or an indication of much earlier subsidence.

Gas flame

Does the qualified RICS surveyor advise on the serviceability of the gas heaters?

The chartered surveyor will locate and visually inspect the accessible parts of the system. This will include the condition of the meter for example, as well as gas associated fixtures like flue/chimney maintenance. Fittings will not however be taken off. Needless to say, gas can be fatal and if there are any worries about gas, contact a gas safe engineer.

Gas regulations stipulate landlords must to carry out appliance and installation inspections every 12 months and punishments for failure to comply include heavy fines .
