HomeBuyer Report

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

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey, however it is basically the same the same level of survey.

If the Hingham property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make an extension, it would be better that you book a Building Survey. This option is less cheap however it will give you exhaustive analysis of the Hingham property's condition as well as an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

Building Surveys on houses

As it is more expensive, what is the argument for getting a the full structural survey if purchasing a defective mid terrace home near Hingham as opposed to a HomeBuyer Report?

Albeit recurrently referred to as Full Structural Surveys by some, this most technical survey has been replaced by RICS Building Survey Choose the Building Survey if you are considering the house described. The HomeBuyer Report is enough for a post 1950s unmodified house made out of normal construction materials and methods. You should be aware of one or two limitations exist

with a Building Survey as RICS chartered surveyor cannot (unless safe to do so) open up the structure of the building of investigate the internal state of any flues.

Stone block wall damage

Can homes built with stone generate lots of maintenance costs for the owner? What should we be particularly aware of?

Stone walls often appear more robust than they are. Issues including efflorescence affect many stone-walled houses in Hingham. Irregular stone often has a more rustic appearance, but the mortar used may be susceptible to a higher rate of decay. Both regular or irregular stone can be mortared with lime-based mortar, and may need repointing. Property surveys should give some repair guidance, like resolution of underlying problems, like damp, before work on the wall starts.

Gas flame

Will a qualified surveyor check out the safety of the gas mains supply?

A RICS surveyor will locate and visually inspect any easily accessible parts of the system. This will include gas (and oil heaters) as part of the Hingham survey, as well as gas associated appliances for example - chimney breasts. However, the Hingham local surveyor won't remove gas fittings and he or she won't carry out any tests on the functionality of the gas system. Needless to say, gas is potentially deadly, if you have any concerns relating to gas installations, contact a gas safe engineer.

The regulations stipulate that all landlords are legally required to conduct appliance and installation inspections every 12 months and punishments for failure to comply include heavy fines or imprisonment .
