Which Property Survey should you choose?

  • House suitable for a HomeBuyer Report

    Homebuyer Report in Heaton Moor

    A Homebuyer Report is the best choice if planning to buy a home constructed from conventional building materials such as tile & brick, in reasonable repair and constructed after 1900.

  • Property suitable for a Building Survey

    Building Survey in Heaton Moor

    A Building Survey (often referred to as a Full Structural Survey in Heaton Moor) is also carried out by a MRICS/FRICS surveyor but is more thorough. Choose this for non standard e.g. stone wall buildings.

  • Surveyor carrying out a Property Valuation

    Property Valuation Report in Heaton Moor

    This is an independent valuation of the property. This is often chosen by mortgage free purchasers or someone requiring a formal valuation e.g. a dispute.

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to get a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a property in Heaton Moor and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey but is effectively the same survey.

If the Heaton Moor property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out major works, RICS recommend you commission a Building Survey instead. The Building Survey is less cheap however it will give you a thorough analysis of the Heaton Moor property's state of repair along with more detailed advice on defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

Timber damage by insect larvae

I am worried about bugs in the home we plan to buy - Do we need a property surveyor?

Be aware that your solicitor's forms may not ask about this issue. This problem should be taken seriously. It may not be obvious that a building is suffering a severe pest problem, as evidence can be overlooked, termites are still rare in the UK, but may be present in imported timber. They are capable of almost hollowing out beams before they are discovered

and can therefore put the structural integrity of a home at serious risk. As some infestations can be very stubborn, knowing the risks, and chance of success before you buy is essential. If investigation does uncover a problem, consider speaking to the seller to ask that they deal with the issue prior to exchange.

Gas flame

Does a RICS chartered surveyor go into detail on the safety of the gas mains supply?

A will locate and visually look at the accessible parts of the gas system. The surveyor will look at gas heaters (also LPG/oil/electric) at the home, as well as gas connected fixtures for example - associated asbestos. The gas fittings will not however be undone. The gas system won't be tested in any way. Anything related to gas should be handled with care as it is potentially hazardous, if you have any worries about gas, call a gas engineer.

Defective door frame

On a Heaton Moor HomeBuyer Report what can 'E6 - Outside doors' include?

Quite a common example is broken door glazing. External doors are checked where keys are available, but not forced open. Broadly speaking, the thresholds of doorways are also surveyed, checking that access is level, water is excluded from leaking into the property, etc. The format of the RICS HomeBuyer Report is clear and easy to read. The surveyor uses a scale between 1 and 3 to show the severity of any defects or points of interest included in the report.
