HomeBuyer Report

Should we opt for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a house in Bow Street and which one would be cheaper?

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

If the Bow Street property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make any major works, you should you go for a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it does offer exhaustive analysis of the Bow Street property's state of repair along with information on defects as well as maintenance options .

Gas flame

Does a qualified surveyor report on the safety of the gas installations?

Your local surveyor will locate and visually check out the easily accessible parts of the gas system. This will mean gas related areas such as the routing of any gas pipes at the building, as well as gas related installations, for instance the condition of gas piping in loft spaces. However, the Bow Street local surveyor won't remove any external fittings or housings nor will the surveyor conduct any tests on the functionality of the gas system. Most people are aware that gas is potentially hazardous, should you have any worries about gas, contact a gas safe engineer.

Gas Safe Register firms in Bow Street include M Davies Plumbing & Heating of 80, Maesyderi, Talybont, Dyfed Tel. 07964 124457 and Brian Silvester Heating And Plumbing of Braeside, Clarach Road, Borth, Ceredigion Tel. 01970871684.

Landfill site near home

What should we be aware of when buying a maisonette close to a refuse landfill site

Sites used for landfill come in many shapes and sizes e.g. industrial waste material. Understandably, no one would want to live near one (80% of people live near one). Risks might include tars and other hazardous materials .

Homebuyer reports in Bow Street will notice any structural defects linked to the landfill. Your lawyer will conduct conveyancing searches of the Landmark data sets in addition to Ceredigion Local Authority and give you the results of the search .

Defective door frame

On a Bow Street HomeBuyer Report what can 'E6 - Outside doors' include?

A fairly common example may be blocked drainage holes. Outside doors are to be opened and closed, but will not force open any without keys. In general, draughts and damp penetration around the frames will be included. RICS HomeBuyer Reports are transparent, detailed surveys of residential property. The report uses colour coded condition ratings to give home buyers in Bow Street a clear understanding of how serious the issues which the surveyor has discovered actually are. Parts of the report which do not apply to the specific house or flat being surveyed will be indicated with a 'NI', or 'not inspected'. Where the surveyor is unable to gain access to some areas, e.g. the roof of a block of flats, these aspects of the report will not be completed.
