HomeBuyer Report

Should I get a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a home in Kirkwhelpington and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey, however it is essentially the same comprehensive survey.

If the Kirkwhelpington property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any significant alterations, RICS recommend you carry out a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap, however it does give a thorough analysis of the Kirkwhelpington property's condition as well as including information on defects and maintenance options .

Gas flame

Will a qualified RICS surveyor give details on the state of repair of the gas supply?

Your chartered surveyor will visually survey any accessible parts of the system. A surveyor will want to inspect the mains gas installation where relevant, in addition to gas connected fittings, for instance chimney breasts or flues. The Kirkwhelpington qualified RICS surveyor won't actually remove the gas fittings and surveyors are not qualified to do any tests on the system. Needless to say, gas can be fatal, should you have any worries about gas of any type, call a gas engineer without delay.

Traditionally built property

What do I need to investigate when purchasing a building constructed in 1780? Will the structure's age be a concern?

Older construction methods and materials can be a cause of concern for would-be buyers. Kirkwhelpington homes built with traditional methods can be surprisingly expensive to maintain. It is often the case that expert knowledge is necessary, and it could also be necessary to find Materials suitable for the work.

Roof defects identified during a survey

The vendor said that leaks in the roof had been a concern, and we are sensitive to the cost of roof repairs. What does a building surveyor in Kirkwhelpington look for?

This often causes anxiety for Kirkwhelpington home buyers who have had to shell out for major repairs in the past. Many homes can be blighted by roof maintenance problems. From the sheathing to the valley gutters, the status of the whole roof should be reviewed. Your RICS surveyors may then recommend that some faults need urgent attention.

The expense of replacing rotten rafters or soffits, or other major roof work, means that some owners put it off for as long as possible. This is a false economy, as such issues can lead to more severe general structural problems. It may be advisable to source an estimate for any work prior to exchange.
