HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to book a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a property in Cotham and which one is the cheapest?

Gas flame

Will a qualified RICS surveyor look at the serviceability of the gas appliances?

A chartered surveyor will visually check out the easily accessible parts of the gas system. A surveyor will want to inspect the condition of the meter where relevant, in addition to gas connected fittings like associated asbestos. The gas fittings won't be removed. Most people are aware that gas is potentially dangerous, should you have any worries relating to gas installations, call a gas safe engineer.

The regulations stipulate that all landlords are legally required to carry out appliance and installation inspections annually and punishments for failure to comply include heavy fines or imprisonment .
