HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to select a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a home in Aylesford and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same survey.

If the Aylesford property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out substantial modifications, RICS advise you book a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap however it will offer comprehensive details of the Aylesford property's general condition and it includes advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

Damage resulting from flooding

When getting in Aylesford, should we be anxious about a flood risk, and will the home surveyor check for indications of flooding damage?

The impact of flooding, both in the region of Aylesford and nationwide, is a serious concern for owners. Both home buyers and home owners in areas at a high risk of flooding are right to be worried.

As with many aspects of home ownership, flood prevention is better (and cheaper) than a cure, but a surveyor will also make recommendations to prepare for the worst. The house survey will also include details of any evidence of historical flooding, and may comment generally about the area's propensity to flood. Flooding issues will only be raised in Section J of a house survey if the property surveyor observes or has reason to suspect that the Aylesford home is at risk.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

The Sussex bond brick on this Victorian property needs work. What are the possible consequences? Is age a factor?

Brick-built residences feature several advantages, but they will also indicate considerable issues, including frost damaged pointing and spalling. A serious concern is brick rot, resulting from decades of exposure to condensation or damp at ground level. Illustrious Construction should be able to provide an estimate for repair work. Contact them at 23/Manford Court/Manford Way, Chigwell, IG7 4DP or 07960 227640.

Other aspects of a property which may feature decorative include diapering' (using contrast and varied colours of bricks to enliven a plain surface). It may be appropriate to renegotiate the price of a property if a survey reveals even superficial brick wall problems.

Gas flame

Does the RICS surveyor go into detail on the safety of the gas appliances?

Your will locate and visually check out the easily accessible parts of the gas system. This will include gas heaters (also LPG/oil/electric) as part of the survey, as well as gas connected appliances or installations such as balanced flues. Fittings or covers however, won't be undone. Needless to say, gas can be deadly, if you have any worries about gas, call a gas engineer.
