HomeBuyer Report

Should we have a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a property in Mitcham and which would be the cheapest?

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

If the Mitcham property is an apartment, or is a period property, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out any alterations, you should you commission a Building Survey instead. This option is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it will offer comprehensive details of the Mitcham property's state of repair as well as more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

Gas flame

Will a chartered surveyor check out the condition of the gas flues?

The local surveyor will visually examine the accessible parts of the system. The surveyor will look at whether the mains is connected at the property, in addition to gas associated fittings such as balanced flues (where immediately extended from appliance/external element).. Your Mitcham qualified surveyor will not remove any fittings and he or she won't carry out any tests on the serviceability of the system. Needless to say, gas is potentially fatal, should there be any worries relating to gas installations, call a gas engineer.

Traditionally built property

What do I need to bear in mind when purchasing a building constructed in 1720? Will upkeep costs be higher?
