HomeBuyer Report

Should we book a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a house in Hartfield and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey but is basically the same the same comprehensive survey.

If the Hartfield property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any substantial modifications, RICS advise you select a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap, however it will give a thorough analysis of the Hartfield property's condition along with information on defects and maintenance options .

For more detailed advice you can get a Hartfield House Survey Quote or call us 0800 038 6667 to speak to our survey team.

Gas flame

Does a local surveyor inspect the state of repair of the gas flues?

Your will visually inspect the accessible parts of the gas system. The surveyor will look at the mains gas installation as part of the survey, in addition to gas related installations such as fireplaces. The external fittings or housings will not however be removed. Gas is potentially hazardous and if there are any concerns about gas fittings, contact a gas safe engineer.

The regulations ensure that landlords have to carry out appliance and installation inspections every 12 months. Non compliance penalties are harsh .

Damaged Render

What will the Chartered Surveyor look out for on a roughcast rendered (stucco) regency home in Hartfield.

Stucco is just smooth type of render. Typically stucco render is applied to brick (sometimes also ceilings) to form an even finish. The finish is highly attractive and is found on Regency houses. Specialists say that it is almost exactly the same as mortar in its nature. It used to contain lime (to make it workable) in it as well as animal fibres to help stop cracks. it can be problematic and Surveyors in Hartfield can highlight defects e.g. trapped moisture culminating in damp problems.

Another example of problems may be when the application has been taken down to ground level bypassing the Damp Proof Course. Fixing problems can be difficult and costly as craftsmen are getting rarer.

Timber damage by insect larvae

A local warned us about vermin affecting properties nearby. Will a residential surveyor look into this?

Hartfield purchasers should know that is not a requirement that the vendor to mention a pest issue. Pests quite literally come in all shapes and sizes, and can be more difficult to treat than many buyers realise. An affected property may not always be easy to identify.

For example, bed bugs do not live in mattresses, as in commonly thought, but in cracks in the bed frame, or around the room, and will feed on the host at night. Treatment for pest problems may include removal of infected furniture. Your property surveyor may report on signs of infestation, but if you have specific concerns they can be taken into account.
