HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to choose a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a home in Hollywood and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same survey.

If the Hollywood property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any alterations, RICS advise you carry out a Building Survey instead. This more detailed survey is not as cheap however it does give you exhaustive analysis of the Hollywood property's condition and it includes information on defects as well as maintenance options .

Gas flame

Does a RICS chartered surveyor give details on the condition of the gas supply?

Your qualified RICS surveyor will locate and visually inspect the easily accessible parts of the gas system. This will mean gas related areas such as the gas pipe route as part of the survey, as well as gas affiliated installations for example - fixed external ventilation hearths. Your Hollywood RICS surveyor won't remove any gas fittings and won't run any tests on the appliances or system. Gas can be hazardous and if there are any worries relating to gas installations, call an engineer.

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

We are purchasing a home in Hollywood and found the driveway surface is broken and uneven. Is this a urgent risk, and what subsidence issues does the Hollywood Surveyor report on?

Subsidence is the movement of the foundations of a structure which compromises its structural integrity. Most structures will experience cracking at some stage, especially new homes or recent extensions or major alterations. Where the home is of very recent construction, the builder will usually return to a new structure after time has passed in order to repair settlement damage.

Cracks that appear suddenly could indicate subsidence. In extreme weather conditions, movement can worsen, leading to subsidence. This is not usually a concern in England and Wales however.

The root cause of any subsidence must be found before repairs can commence. It has been estimated that around 70 per cent of cases of subsidence are caused by tree roots taking the moisture out of the soil. Damaged but non-structural elements should be filled and re-weatherproofed. Chartered surveyors should be able to identify a subsidence problem, while structural engineers may also be required.

Damage resulting from flooding

Does a Hollywood RICS surveyor check for indications of flooding?

Heavy rain, clogged drains and overflowing streams can cause floods, and owning a residential property in or near a high-risk area can mean higher insurance premiums. A surveyor has a number of options to assess whether a property is vulnerable. The property survey may also, where appropriate, make recommendations for repair work or improved flood protection.Section J of the survey report contains details, where applicable, of flooding risks found within the boundaries of the house in Hollywood or on adjacent sites. The Environment Agency also publish details of previous flood warnings.
