HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to have a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a property in Friday Hill and of the 3, which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey, however it is essentially the same level of survey.

If the Friday Hill property is a flat or maisonette, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any substantial modifications on the property, RICS recommend you opt for a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap but it does provide you with a more detailed analysis of the Friday Hill property's condition as well as including advice on defects , repairs and maintenance options .

Roof defects identified during a survey

Our seller said that the had been a problem with wet rot - What will our Friday Hill building surveyor investigate as part of the survey?

This often causes anxiety for purchasers who have had to put up with weeks of scaffolding around their home while work is underway. Many homes can be hiding serious roof maintenance problems. From clay tiles to ceiling joists, the whole roof will be taken into account. Flat roofs are also known for the trouble they can cause, often the result of being literally flat, as opposed to on a small incline so that water can drain correctly.

Fixing a leaking roof need not always be costly, but they should be budgeted for carefully. A building survey prior to exchange is highly recommended, so that you fully understand what expenses you will be facing. It may be advisable to source an estimate for any work prior to exchange.

However, buyers should endeavour to compare a number of quotes to find the best deal.

Building Surveys on houses

Do I need to obtain a full structural survey when considering a extended regency cottage in Friday Hill as an alternative to a HomeBuyer Report?

Now often still called a Full Structural Survey by house buyers, it is no longer available as it has been renamed by the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors and the correct term is now the Building Survey. This is the right survey if buying a modified home such as an unloved Friday Hill house. A RICS Building Survey specifies comprehensive and far-reaching information in relation to the property's construction and uses along with any needs for future maintenance after a thorough inspection of any accessible parts. For further info on what is and isn't included here.

Gas flame

Does a surveyor check out the state of the gas appliances?

Your local surveyor will locate and visually check the easily accessible parts of the gas system. This will mean gas related areas such as whether the meter is in an escape route at the home, as well as gas related appliances or installations such as balanced flues (where immediately extended from appliance/external element).. A Friday Hill local surveyor won't actually remove the external fittings and won't carry out any tests of any kind on the serviceability of the system. Needless to say, gas is potentially dangerous, should you have any worries relating to gas installations, call a gas safe engineer.
