Which HomeBuyers Survey should I select for my potential home purchase in Godmanchester?

  • House suitable for a HomeBuyer Report

    Homebuyer Report in Godmanchester

    A Homebuyer Report should be selected when buying a property made of standard materials i.e. brick and tile, not dilapidated and constructed after 1900.

  • Property suitable for a Building Survey

    Building Survey in Godmanchester

    A RICS Building Survey (previously called a Full Structural Survey in Godmanchester) will also be conducted by a RICS surveyor but is more detailed. Opt for this survey when buying a non standard , for example granite wall homes.

  • Surveyor carrying out a Property Valuation

    This is an impartial valuation of the property. This is usually chosen by cash purchasers or someone requiring a formal valuation e.g. matrimonial dispute.

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to select a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a home in Godmanchester and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey but is essentially the same level of survey.

If the Godmanchester property is a flat or maisonette, or is a period property, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out significant alterations, it would be better that you choose a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap, but it will give comprehensive details of the Godmanchester property's condition as well as information on defects , repairs as well as maintenance options .

Gas flame

Does the chartered surveyor go into detail on the condition of the gas mains supply?

A local surveyor will visually check out the easily accessible parts of the gas system. This will mean gas related areas such as gas heaters (also LPG/oil/electric) at the property, as well as gas related gas fittings in the home like the condition of gas piping in loft spaces. The Godmanchester RICS chartered surveyor will not remove gas fittings and will not carry out any tests whatsoever on the appliances or system. Gas is potentially fatal, if you have any concerns about gas fittings, call a gas safe engineer.

Gas regulations require that all landlords must to conduct appliance and installation inspections every 12 months. Non compliance penalties include heavy fines .

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

I am looking for English Garden Wall bond advice - can a surveyor in Godmanchester assist?

Godmanchester brick-walled houses can suffer from various issues and defects. These can include frost damaged pointing or vertical cracking. For example, sulphate attack, caused by moisture interacting with sulphates in cement, and will destroy the structural integrity of the wall and may require immediate attention. Neal A C Ltd at 95 Northbourne Av, Bournemouth, BH10 6DQ should give an estimate for any work. Call them on 07971 568847.

Examples of decorative or unusual usage of brick include ornate Della Robbia bond paving, but it is strongly advised that professional advice be sought prior to attempting repairs.

Landfill site near home

What should I be aware of when purchasing a home close to a refuse tip

Sites used for landfill come in many shapes and sizes e.g. domestic refuse disposal. No one really wants to live near one (most people do live within 1.5m of one!). Worries might include leaking underground tanks from petrol stations for example. Potential health issues like spina bifida have been associated to landfill sites .

Godmanchester surveyors will notice any structural problems resulting from the site. Your conveyancer will commission conveyancing and environmental searches of the Environmental Agency databases and Huntingdonshire Local Authority and will advise you accordingly .
