HomeBuyer Report

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

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey and is effectively the same.

If the Beeston property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out alterations, RICS recommend you select a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap, however it does give you an in-depth analysis of the Beeston property's state of repair as well as advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

Gas flame

Does the qualified surveyor examine the serviceability of the gas supply?

Your chartered surveyor will locate and visually look at the easily accessible parts of the system. This means things like gas (and oil heaters) as part of the Beeston survey, as well as gas associated gas fittings in the home e.g. ventilation of flue (if blocked). External fittings or housings won't however be taken off. Gas can be hazardous, should there be any worries about gas, contact a gas safe engineer.

Damage resulting from flooding

Would our house surveyor investigate possible flooding, or if other properties have been affected?

A wide variety of factors can cause flood damage, from inadequate drainage to tidal activity, and the value of a property can decrease if in an exposed area, even if it has never flooded.

As with many aspects of home ownership, flood prevention is better (and cheaper) than a cure. Flood water can enter a Beeston property through a number of routes, including air bricks, poorly fitted doors and windows, and seepage through external walls. The Building 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 Building Survey if the RICS surveyor observes or has reason to suspect that the Beeston property is at risk.

Damage caused by high rainfall

Are wet conditions an issue in Beeston?

The impact of climate change is widely reported, yet wet conditions and the effect it can have on houses in Beeston are rarely considered properly by home buyers. One indication that downspouts are a cause for concern is damp stains around drainage. This could then result in water damage.

Whether buying in Beeston or elsewhere, difficult downspouts does not necessarily mean that you need to pull out. Such matters are often simple to fix if dealt with quickly. Where this is untreated or poorly maintained, the damage becomes increasing costly to remedy.
