Looking for a Home Survey ? Which one is the right choice?

    The Homebuyer Report is the best choice when buying a property made of conventional materials such as brick & tile, not dilapidated and not over 100 years in age.

  • Property suitable for a Building Survey

    The RICS Building Survey (once known as a Full Structural Survey in Hayes) is also conducted by a MRICS or FRICS chartered surveyor and is more comprehensive. Select this survey for non standard property such as thatched or older buildings.

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a home in Hayes and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey and is effectively the same.

If the Hayes property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any alterations, RICS recommend you opt for a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap but it does give an in-depth analysis of the Hayes property's general condition along with information on defects as well as maintenance options .

Damaged Render

What will the Surveyor examine on a stucco regency detached house in Hayes which we wish to buy.

Stucco (aka pargetting) is really dense render. Usually stucco is layered over brick that dries to a smooth stone like appearance. It is highly attractive and is common on some Victorian and Georgian homes. It can contain lime in it as well as a plastic under mesh to help stop cracks. it can be problematic and Surveyors in Hayes frequently show issues e.g. trapped water culminating in the surface falling away requiring costly repairs

Another example of problems associated with stucco may involve sulphate attack from sulphates or salts absorbed from brickwork. Remedying problems with stucco may be costly as the skills are getting rarer.

Gas flame

Does a RICS chartered surveyor inspect the serviceability of the gas installations?

A RICS chartered surveyor will locate and visually check out any easily accessible parts of the gas system. This will include the condition of the meter where relevant, as well as gas affiliated fittings, for instance chimney breasts. The fittings won't however be detached. Most people are aware that gas is potentially unsafe and if there are any worries about gas or if you smell the distinctive smell of gas, call a gas engineer.

Conservatory

In the HomeBuyer Report what might a Condition Rating 1 mean for 'E7 - Conservatory and porches' ?

E7 elements are visually inspected. Safety hazards, including floor-level glass and blocked escape routes from upper storey windows will be considered too. The paint or staining which is needed for the skirting of a conservatory is one example.

RICS HomeBuyer Reports are transparent, detailed surveys of residential property, unlike some more complex survey reports. Three colour coded ratings give an understanding of how concerning each aspect of the report is. Green, or condition rating 1, indicates that no repair is currently needed. This rating does not, however, mean that no future maintenance is required. Regular upkeep may still be appropriate or even necessary. Some areas may be marked as 'Not inspected'. If a property does not have a porch or conservatory, for example, these aspects of the report will be omitted.
