HomeBuyer Report

Should I go for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a property in Kingsley and which one is cheaper?

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

If the Kingsley property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any major works, RICS recommend you book a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it does provide you with an in-depth analysis of the Kingsley property's general condition in addition to an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

Stone block wall damage

We are planning to buy a cottage and the owner has confirmed that it has been partially constructed with Hopton Wood stone. Are there specific matters to bear in mind, and will the surveyor offer any advice?

Stone walls are often ignored by home buyers due to their apparent strength and solidity. Faults common to poorly maintained stone walls can include penetrating damp. Irregular stone often

has a more rustic appearance, but the mortar used may be susceptible to a higher rate of decay. Different stone types will also decay a different rates based on environmental conditions. For example, exposure to the elements (especially in areas of higher pollution) will cause many limestones to rapidly degrade. Stone walls require regular maintenance, such as using traditional techniques when making repairs to the fabric of older buildings.

Timber damage by insect larvae

We are buying a property but are worried about pests - What should we do?

Scare stories about home vermin are plentiful, it is tempting to treat signs of pests such as vermin as minor annoyances. When purchasing a home, this matter should be borne in mind. It is vital that buyers consider this oft-overlooked aspect when making an offer.

Signs may not be evident for weeks or months, for example, mice are able to squeeze through even small gaps and holes, and quickly spread disease through their droppings. Treatment for pest problems may include insecticides.

Gas flame

Does a qualified surveyor look into the safety of the gas supply?

A local surveyor will locate and visually examine any accessible parts of the system. The surveyor will look at gas heaters as part of the survey, as well as gas related fixtures e.g. balanced flues. If there are any gas fittings they will not however be dislodged. Of course, gas is potentially dangerous, should there be any concerns about gas, contact a gas safe engineer.
