HomeBuyer Report

Should I have a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a home in Clacton On Sea and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey but is essentially the same survey.

If the Clacton On Sea property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make any alterations, RICS recommend you commission a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it will give exhaustive analysis of the Clacton On Sea property's general condition as well as including an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

Gas flame

Does the chartered surveyor look at the condition or the safety of the gas heaters?

The RICS surveyor will locate and visually inspect any easily accessible parts of the system. This will include the routing of any gas pipes as part of the Clacton On Sea survey, in addition to gas affiliated gas fittings in the home, for instance chimney breasts. The external fittings will not be taken off. You should never attempt to fix gas fittings your self as it is potentially fatal, should there be any concerns relating to gas installations, contact a gas safe engineer.

Timber damage by insect larvae

My wife spotted signs of pests in the bedroom. Will a residential surveyor look into this?

Pests like mice may sometimes seem a small, even irrelevant, matter when buying in Clacton On Sea. When purchasing a house, this matter should be borne in mind. 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, mice are able to squeeze through even small gaps and holes, and quickly spread disease through their droppings. Remedies to insect infestation can include removal of infected furniture. Your chartered surveyor may report on signs of infestation, but if you have specific concerns they can be taken into account.
