HomeBuyer Report

Should I choose a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a house in Booker and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey but is basically the same the same comprehensive survey.

If the Booker property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make substantial modifications on the Booker property, you should you choose a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap, but it does give you exhaustive analysis of the Booker property's state of repair in addition to an opinion on defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

Timber damage by insect larvae

A next-door neighbour warned us about an infestation affecting properties nearby. What advice should we get?

Any questions about pests affecting a Booker building may not be asked by the lawyer. Pests quite literally come in all shapes and sizes, and can be more difficult to treat than many buyers realise. It is vital that buyers consider this oft-overlooked aspect when making an offer.

Signs may not be evident for weeks or months. As an example, the smell of ammonia in or behind cupboards may indicate mice, even if no droppings are found. Treatment for bug or other pest issues may include use of poison or removal or excision of affected timber. As awareness of less common problems grows, more surveys should identify these and advise on remedies. Speak to an expert, e.g. PESTUK (High Wycombe & Maidenhead), PO Box 539, Lane End Road, High Wycombe, HP12 4XJ on 0149 480 9500, for more detail.

Gas flame

Will the chartered surveyor check out the state of repair of the gas mains supply?

Your will visually examine the easily accessible parts of the system. This means things like whether the mains is connected at the home, as well as gas associated fixtures e.g. flue/chimney maintenance. Any gas fittings will not be removed. Gas can be unsafe and if there are any worries relating to gas installations, contact a gas safe engineer.

Damage caused by high rainfall

How important is it to check rainwater goods?

Rainfall is a fact of life in the UK, however, the impact heavy rain can have on a structure is not given enough thought by purchasers.

Signs that drainage are under performing include leaves or other vegetation causing a blockage.

That is not to say that drainage problems should cause you to reconsider a purchase. They are usually a simple matter to remedy. If untreated or poorly maintained, however, the damage can be very costly and time-consuming to remedy.
