HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a home in Chelsfield and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, although it is effectively the same.

If the Chelsfield property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out any alterations, it would be better that you select a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap however it will give a more detailed analysis of the Chelsfield property's condition in addition to advice on defects and maintenance options .

For more detailed advice you can get a Chelsfield Survey Quote via our website or call us 0800 038 6667 to speak to a member of our team.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

What warnings would a property surveyor in Chelsfield give for a 70s residence constructed with Diagonal bond walls?

Brick-walled property in Chelsfield can suffer from a range of defects, from DPC failure to thermal movement. For instance, damp and water damage resulting from gaps in uneven brickwork and should be taken very seriously. Contact several local builders for quotes, including M C of Walton Rd, Oldbury, B68 9DB on 07912 356324.

A great deal of variety, both in appearance and manufacture of brick building are used in properties built throughout the ages. For instance, Flemish bond, featuring alternating long and short faces of bricks. Consider renegotiating the price of the Chelsfield property, based on the results of your survey. Works to remedy even some superficial brick wall defects can be both expensive and disruptive.

Timber damage by insect larvae

We are concerned about an infestation - What should we do?

Be aware that your solicitor's forms may not ask about this issue.

Unfortunately, the threat posed by these to property is very real, and can be costly to fix. It may not be obvious that a property is suffering a severe pest problem, as evidence can be overlooked, for example, mice are able to squeeze through even small gaps and holes, and quickly spread disease through their droppings. As some pests can be very stubborn, knowing the risks, and chance of success before you buy is essential.

Gas flame

Will a Chelsfield surveyor check out the condition or the safety of the gas appliances?

Your surveyor will locate and visually check the easily accessible parts of the gas system. A surveyor will want to inspect the mains gas installation for example, as well as gas affiliated fittings such as ventilation of flue (if blocked). A Chelsfield local surveyor will not remove any external fittings or housings nor will they conduct any tests whatsoever on the system. Most people are aware that gas can be fatal, should you have any concerns relating to gas installations, call a gas safe engineer without delay.
