Which Building Survey should you choose?

  • House suitable for a HomeBuyer Report

    Homebuyer Report in Liverpool

    A Homebuyer Report is the best choice if buying a home built from conventional materials i.e. brick & tile, not dilapidated and less than 100 years old.

  • Property suitable for a Building Survey

    Building Survey in Liverpool

    The RICS Building Survey (often referred to as a Full Structural Survey in Liverpool) will also be carried out by a MRICS or FRICS chartered surveyor but is more comprehensive. Opt for this for unconventional , for example timber frame properties.

  • Surveyor carrying out a Property Valuation

    Property Valuation Report in Liverpool

    This is an independent valuation . It is often chosen by mortgage free purchasers or someone requiring a formal valuation e.g. for probate.

HomeBuyer Report

Should we get a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a home in Liverpool and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey but is essentially the same.

If the Liverpool property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out any major works, it would be better that you choose a Building Survey instead. This survey is not as cheap but it will give a more detailed analysis of the Liverpool property's general condition in addition to advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Shocking Electrics

When I went to see a property I am interested to acquire, it looked like there might be an overload of the fuses/fusebox; will a Liverpool survey go into detail on electrical defects?

During a Home Survey in Liverpool the RICS surveyor should usually mention the overall electrical system if it is obvious that the electrics are in a less than satisfactory condition. This should include a by sight look-over of the open areas of the wiring or fusebox in addition to areas e.g. reporting on the condition of any visible wiring. Looking at any documentation from a test on the condition of the electrical installations conducted by an electrician should usually form part of the Homebuyer report in Liverpool. A check for the documents from a test on the condition of the electrical installations carried out by a suitably qualified electrician on the property being surveyed should usually be part of the Homebuyer report in Liverpool .

The IEE suggest that an electrical check be completed at least every 10 years (or every 5 if renting out).

Damage resulting from flooding

Is there a flood risk in Liverpool, and will the building survey check for indications of water damage, or if neighbouring property have been affected?

Flooding has become a major issue, not least because last year was the second wettest on record. Both home buyers and home owners in areas in danger of flooding are right to be worried. It is easily possible to assess whether a house is susceptible to flooding via any of a number of routes.

Flooding can increase the likelihood of water entering a house, such as via badly fitted air bricks. Less expensive preventative measures include door guards. The house surveyor will usually recommend that the home buyers seek legal advice on any related information mentioned in the report.

Gas flame

Does a RICS surveyor report on the state of the gas installations?

The RICS chartered surveyor will locate and visually examine any easily accessible parts of the gas system. This will include the routing of any gas pipes where relevant, as well as gas associated appliances or installations such as flue/chimney maintenance. The fittings won't be taken off. Of course, gas is potentially fatal, should you have any concerns about gas fittings, contact a gas safe engineer.

Gas regulations stipulate that all landlords must to conduct appliance and installation inspections every 12 months and punishments for failure to comply are criminal .

  • Sash window frame with wet rot

    By Stewart Heasman September 29th, 2012

    Wet rot is usually associated with neglect or poor detailing in buildings, occurring in timbers which are continually wet, or having persistent moisture content in excess of around 20%. This can be caused by leaking roofs, joinery exposed to the elements (as was the case in this property) or...
