HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to get a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a house in Kingstanding and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey and is basically the same the same survey.

If the Kingstanding property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out major works, RICS recommend you go for a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap but it will give exhaustive analysis of the Kingstanding property's state of repair as well as including more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

Gas flame

Will a qualified RICS surveyor look into the condition of the gas supply?

The chartered surveyor will locate and visually inspect the accessible parts of the gas system. The surveyor will look at the meter location/position as part of the survey, as well as gas related fittings such as flue/chimney maintenance. Gas fittings won't actually be dislodged. The gas system won't be tested in any way. Of course, gas is potentially hazardous, should you have any concerns about gas fittings, contact a gas safe engineer.

Conservatory

For a HomeBuyer Report on a Kingstanding house what can 'E7' refer to?

This section covers conservatories and porches. Any signs of inappropriate use, such as using a conservatory as a bedroom or kitchen will also be mentioned in the report. A missing step up into a house is one example. RICS HomeBuyer Reports are transparent, detailed surveys of residential property. As buyers in Kingstanding are unlikely to be experts in local building techniques and materials themselves, the report is written with as little jargon as possible. The report employs 'traffic light' ratings of red, amber and green the severity of any defects or points of interest included in the report. Some areas may be marked as 'Not inspected'. The structured format for the HomeBuyer Report is intended to produce a useful and comprehensive survey for any home purchasers. As a result, some sections are omitted where they do not apply to the surveyed property.

Roof defects identified during a survey

The seller said that bowing had been a concern. I am particularly concerned about the state of the roof. What should we look for?

Homes in the area in otherwise fine condition will suffer difficulties with the roof, for example, bad drainage. From gables to parapet walls, the roof structure as a whole should be investigated. Flat roofs can also be a nuisance, caused by factors like badly installed felting.

Upkeep can be the cause of serious accidents, which is why modern contractors refuse to work without scaffolding. It may be advisable to source an estimate for any work prior to exchange.
