Which Building Survey is the right choice?

  • Property suitable for a Building Survey

HomeBuyer Report

Should I select a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a home in Brixham and which one is the cheapest?

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

If the Brixham property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any significant alterations, you should you commission a Building Survey instead. This more detailed survey is not as cheap however it will provide you with comprehensive details of the Brixham property's condition along with information on defects and maintenance options .

Building Surveys on flats 1

Is it the right choice to get a full structural survey prior to buying a doer-upper, seventies garden flat in Brixham?

The Full Structural Survey is now dubbed the Building Survey. A HomeBuyer Report has enough detail if buying a mid 20th century of later unmodified property assembled from standard construction materials and methods. A Building Survey is certainly the appropriate survey to choose for the flat described. Shortly after a thorough survey of the accessible parts of the flat a written report (digital and written copy) will be provided to you going through in depth and critical information about the construction of the property. There will be certain no go areas with any residential survey insofar as a local surveyor is not able to force or open up the fabric of the Brixham flat such as removing loft contents. Additionally flats usually mean access to the building can be prevented and as a result the surveyor is only able to look at the flat itself, though the surveyor may provide detail on communal sections of the property such as the roof. For more details and a comparison of the differences between surveys visit Survey comparison table.

Shocking Electrics

When I visited the building I intend to buy, it looked like there is old wiring. Will a Homebuyer Report in Brixham go into detail on the electrics?

When carrying out a Brixham Building Survey a qualified surveyor will usually remark on the condition of the electrics if it is obvious that they are in a less than satisfactory condition. A professional surveyor is required to give detail on possible problems relating to things like inspecting the state of any fitted appliances e.g. storage radiators or reporting on the condition of any visible wiring a representative sample of light fittings and switch gear. Inspecting any evidence of the most recent Periodic Inspection Report conducted by an electrician on the property should be part of the survey in Brixham.

The IEE advise that a Periodic Inspection be completed every 10 years (or every 5 if letting).

Gas flame

Will the qualified surveyor look at the safety of the gas mains supply?

Your surveyor will locate and visually check the accessible parts of the system. This will include the meter location/position at the building, as well as gas associated installations e.g. chimney linings. The Brixham chartered surveyor won't actually remove any fittings and won't run any tests whatsoever on the functionality of the gas system. Of course, gas is potentially fatal and if there are any concerns relating to gas installations, call a gas safe engineer.
