HomeBuyer Report

Should we go for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a home in Eccleshall and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey but is effectively the same level of survey.

If the Eccleshall property is an apartment, or is a period property, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make any major works, RICS advise you go for a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap, but it will give a more detailed analysis of the Eccleshall property's state of repair along with more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

Building Surveys on houses

I don't see the justification to commission a full structural survey if purchasing a neglected detached bungalow near Eccleshall over a HomeBuyer Report?

Frequently and incorrectly referred to as a Structural Survey by many, it is now defunct and as it has been given a new moniker by RICS(Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors) and the correct term is now the Building Survey. This is now the right RICS survey when buying an altered house - such as an unloved Eccleshall house. This type of survey sets out comprehensive and far-reaching professional advice concerning the property's construction and uses on top of any maintenance

needs, following a thorough visual inspection of the accessible areas of the house. Read more about HomeBuyer Reports and Building Surveys visit here.

Gas flame

Does a Eccleshall surveyor inspect the condition or the safety of the gas mains supply?

A qualified surveyor will locate and visually survey the accessible parts of the system. The survey will include gas heaters (also LPG/oil/electric) as part of the survey, as well as gas affiliated appliances e.g. chimney breasts. A Eccleshall surveyor won't remove any external fittings and surveyors are not qualified to do any tests on the system. Most people are aware that gas is potentially unsafe, if you have any concerns about gas fittings or if you suspect a gas issue, call a gas safe engineer.

Eccleshall based gas engineers include The Premier Plumbing and Heating Company of 2 Waterworks Cottages, Cranberry, Stafford, Staffordshire Tel. 01782791683.

Roof defects identified during a survey

The next-door neighbour said that the had been a problem with deteriorated flashing - Will access to the loft be a problem?

Houses in Eccleshall with no other major issues can be blighted by problems like mould. All aspects of the roof should be reviewed, from the rafters to the wind braces. Flat roofs are also known for the trouble they can cause, often the result of badly installed felting.

Repairs can be the cause of serious accidents, which is why modern contractors refuse to work without scaffolding. A roofing specialist in Eccleshall with a good reference should be able to assist with a quote.
