HomeBuyer Report

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

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same.

If the Hale Barns property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make an extension, RICS recommend you choose a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it does give a more detailed analysis of the Hale Barns property's state of repair along with information on defects , repairs and maintenance options .

Damage caused by high rainfall

Is rain an issue in Hale Barns? Also, where there [var10], what should we do?

Rainfall is a fact of life in the UK, however, the impact damp weather can have on houses is usually overlooked. If you have visited the residence in warm weather, defects may not have been obvious. Signs that gutters are blocked include spattered mud around the bottom of downspouts. Blocked rainwater goods can result in cracked foundations and subsidence.

The good news is that issues with rainwater goods are quite easy to repair fairly cheaply. Where this is left untreated, the damage becomes increasing costly to remedy.

Gas flame

Does the RICS chartered surveyor give details on the serviceability of the gas installations?

Yes. A chartered surveyor will locate and visually look at the easily accessible parts of the gas system. This will include the gas pipe route for instance, as well as gas related fixtures e.g. associated asbestos. A Hale Barns local surveyor won't remove the external fittings and will not run any tests of any kind on the functionality of the gas system. Anything related to gas should be handled with care as it is potentially unsafe, if you have any worries about gas, call a gas safe engineer.

Timber damage by insect larvae

I am worried about pests in the Hale Barns house we plan to buy - Should we get a property surveyor?

Questions regarding the infestation of a Hale Barns property may not be raised during the conveyancing. When purchasing a property, this matter should be borne in mind. It may not be obvious that a property is suffering a severe pest problem, as evidence can be overlooked, for example, mice are able to squeeze through even small gaps and holes, and quickly spread disease through their droppings. Remedies can take time, so if you opt to proceed with the purchase, check with a specialist how long treatment will take. If investigation does uncover a problem, consider speaking to the seller to ask that they deal with the issue prior to exchange.
