HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to go for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a house in Millwall and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey but is effectively the same survey.

If the Millwall property is a flat, or is an older property, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction, then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any alterations, it would be better that you carry out a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap, but it does offer a more detailed analysis of the Millwall property's condition as well as advice on structural defects , repairs as well as maintenance options .

Conservatory

For a HomeBuyer Report on a Millwall house, what are common defects an red light rating impacting conservatory and porches?

A condition rating of three is used to emphasise the most crucial repairs. Such issues can have a significant impact on a house's value. Parts of the report which do not apply to the specific property being surveyed will be indicated with a 'NI', or 'not inspected'. RICS have mandated a specific format for the HomeBuyer Report to aid the creation of a useful and comprehensive report for both surveyors and home buyers. As a result, some sections may not be relevant to every property, such as reporting on the condition of the roof of a ground floor flat.

One example issue could be end support that is inadequate for the beams of a conservatory structure. Section

E7 defects include those affect any porch or conservatory attached to the home. Any signs of inappropriate use, such as using a conservatory as a bedroom or kitchen will also be mentioned in the report.

Stone block wall damage

We are purchasing an 1860s home with stone walls. Are there any potential issues that need to be investigated?

Buyers of listed property should consider that 'sympathetic' maintenance may be required. This is monitored by the local council. The problems which can plague poorly maintained stone vary considerably. Irregular stone walls are found throughout the county, and can require more care and attention that regular, brick-like stone walls due greater impact the weather can have on exposed mortar.

Regular courses of ashlar (cut stone) are often used as a finish to irregular stone walls, with a brick or rubble wall beneath.

Home Buyers Surveys will usually offer guidance on these matters. An example would be removal of invasive plants, such as ivy. Purchasers renovating Millwall property should be aware that the British Geological Survey's GeoReport includes a stone matching service. To source stone quarried in Millwall, you can contact local suppliers.

Gas flame

Will the surveyor report on the state of repair of the gas heaters?

A RICS surveyor will visually check out any accessible parts of the gas system. This will include whether the meter is in an escape route at the building, in addition to gas affiliated fixtures such as flue/chimney maintenance. A Millwall surveyor will not remove any external fittings or housings and surveyors are not qualified to run any tests on the system. Needless to say, gas is potentially deadly, should there be any concerns about gas, contact a gas safe engineer.
