HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to get a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a home in Grappenhall and which one is 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 Grappenhall property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any works or an extension, RICS recommend you choose a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap but it does give you an in-depth analysis of the Grappenhall property's condition in addition to information on defects as well as maintenance options .

Gas flame

Does a RICS chartered surveyor look into the safety of the gas heaters?

A RICS surveyor will locate and visually look at the easily accessible parts of the system. This will include whether the mains is connected for example, as well as gas associated fixtures like ventilation of flue (if blocked). Should there be any external fittings they won't be dislodged. Needless to say, gas is potentially fatal, should there be any worries about gas fittings, call a gas engineer.

The regulations require that all landlords have to complete appliance and installation inspections annually and punishments for failure to comply are criminal .

Timber damage by insect larvae

My wife spotted signs of pests in the hall. Should we get a surveyor?

Any questions about pests affecting a Grappenhall home may not be asked by the lawyer. Regrettably, pest problems can seriously reduce the value of a property and affect the health of residents.

It may not be obvious that a home is suffering a severe pest problem, as evidence can be overlooked, damage to stored clothes or carpets is a sign of a moth infestation, but may not be spotted for months. Treatment for pest problems may include professional cleaning. Rather than pulling out, it may be possible to agree a reduction in the purchase price to cover the cost of remedy.
