HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to have a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a home in Freshwater Bay and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same level of survey.

If the Freshwater Bay property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any substantial modifications, RICS recommend you book a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap however it will give you an in-depth analysis of the Freshwater Bay property's condition as well as advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

Damage resulting from flooding

Will our Freshwater Bay residential surveyor check water damage, or whether flooding has affected nearby homes?

Flooding has blighted the lives of thousands of home owners in Freshwater Bay and across the country, and property buyers cannot know that insurance against flooding will continue to be available. A flood warning service, with regular updates, is operated by the Environment Agency. In addition, the Building Survey may recommend maintenance.Familiarity with characteristics of the local area likely to affect home enables the RICS surveyor to surmise flooding may be a risk, even if the property has not itself flooded before. The RICS surveyor may ask the vendor if the

home has previously flooded. Note that the response to such enquires should not be exclusively relied upon.

Gas flame

Will the RICS surveyor inspect the state of repair of the gas appliances?

The surveyor will locate and visually inspect the easily accessible parts of the system. The surveyor will look at the condition of the meter for instance, as well as gas connected fixtures, for instance the condition of gas piping in loft spaces. Your Freshwater Bay qualified surveyor won't remove any external fittings nor will the surveyor do any tests on the appliances or system. You should never attempt to fix gas fittings your self as it is potentially dangerous, should there be any worries about gas, contact a gas safe engineer.

Conservation area

Will there be any concerns I would need to be aware of if buying a converted flat in Freshwater Bay in the vicinity of a conservation area?

There are 9, 300 of designated conservation areas in England and Wales which are overseen by local authorities.

A Building Surveyors must have sufficient knowledge of local factors and the bearing they have on the property. The value of homes is generally higher as a result of them being in good order. However a large number have been neglected and are in a state e.g. the removal front garden walls

RICS surveyors are expected note if the house looks like it may be is so classified and Section I Issues for your legal advisers of the Homebuyer Report will suggest the proper questions are conducted by the solicitor or conveyancer. Unauthorised adjustments that do not have Local Authority approval will also be noted but these are really more a investigated by your legal adviser.
