HomeBuyer Report

Should we book a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a house in Dalton in Furness and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same comprehensive survey.

If the Dalton in Furness property is a flat, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any major works, it would be better that you commission a Building Survey. This option is less cheap but it will provide you with a thorough analysis of the Dalton in Furness property's condition and it includes an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

Building Surveys on houses

When buying a dilapidated regency end of terrace home - should I get a full structural survey?

Full Structural Surveys have been renamed by RICS as Building Surveys. The HomeBuyer Report is appropriate for a post 1950s unmodified house assembled from typical building materials. A Building Survey is certainly the most suitable type of survey in relation to the house mentioned. Around 3 days following a thorough inspection of the accessible parts, a report (set out in the surveyor's individual format) is posted to the buyer summarising thorough and relevant insight on the state of repair of the property. There are one or two limitations with the survey to bear in mind because a surveyor is not in a position to (unless safe to do so) force or open up the fabric of the Dalton in Furness house e.g. lifting up fitted carpets.

Gas flame

Will the chartered surveyor report on the safety of the gas installations?

Your will visually inspect any accessible parts of the gas system. The surveyor will look at whether the mains is connected where relevant, as well as gas related fittings for example - chimney linings. The external fittings will not however be dislodged. Anything related to gas should be handled with care as it is potentially deadly and if there are any concerns relating to gas installations, call a gas engineer.

Dalton in Furness based gas engineers include G And S Plumbing and Heating of 1 Station Mews, Station Road, Dalton-In-Furness Tel. 07739370371 and Ian Robb of 54 Chapel Street, Dalton-In-Furness, Cumbria Tel. 01229467064.

The 1998 Gas Safety Regulations require that all landlords have to conduct appliance and installation inspections yearly and punishments for failure to comply are harsh .

External walls

For a HomeBuyer Report on a Dalton in Furness residential property what does a green light rating mean for 'E4 - Main walls' ?

Foundations and possible defects within the walls will not be investigated, an in-depth building survey may be required if serious foundational issues are suspected. Observations on the Damp Proof Course are also reported here. A leaning or rotating lintel is an example.

A rating of 1 is the highest, meaning that this aspect of the residence being surveyed does not need urgent attention. Elements of Section E marked as condition rating 1 may however still require regular maintenance. Parts of the report which do not apply to the specific property being surveyed will be indicated with a 'NI', or 'not inspected'. Irrelevant subsections of the HomeBuyer Report, like an assessment of a conservatory where the home in question does not have one, are disregarded.
