HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to choose a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a home in Epworth and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey and is essentially the same comprehensive survey.

If the Epworth property is a flat, or is an older property, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make any major works, it would be better that you commission a Building Survey. This option is less cheap however it does give you exhaustive analysis of the Epworth property's state of repair as well as an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

For further advice you can get a Epworth Homebuyers Survey Quote or call us 0800 038 6667 to speak to our survey team.

Traditionally built property

What should we take notice of when purchasing older property in Epworth? Will the property's age be a problem?

For houses in Epworth built before the 20th Century, age can be a cause of concern for would-be buyers, and Epworth property featuring traditional methods can be difficult to maintain. It is often the case that expert knowledge is necessary. Especially for Grade I listed property, Materials suitable for the work may be required.

Building Surveys on apartments

Is it worth paying a bit more for a full structural survey on an apartment in Epworth?

Building Survey has now superseded the Structural Survey following its reclassification a while ago by RICS. If buying a modified property, for example a dilapidated house, this is the right survey to get a surveyor to do. The HomeBuyer Report goes into enough detail if investigating a mid century or later unmodified Epworth apartment built out of normal construction materials. Subsequent to a thorough site survey of any accessible parts, a formal report is emailed (pdf format) and posted to the client specifying comprehensive and far-reaching information concerning the state of repair of the house.

There are a few restrictions with a property survey insofar as a surveyor will not be able to force or open up the fabric of the Epworth building e.g. removing secured panels. See the survey differences article for more info the differences between surveys.

Gas flame

Will a chartered surveyor advise on the state of repair of the gas heaters?

A chartered surveyor will locate and visually look at the easily accessible parts of the system. The surveyor will look at whether the mains is connected for instance, as well as gas associated appliances such as associated asbestos. The Epworth local surveyor won't remove external fittings or housings and will not conduct any tests of any kind on the gas system. Of course, gas can be deadly and if there are any concerns about gas, call a gas engineer.
