HomeBuyer Report

Should I choose a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a property in Old Windsor and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey and is effectively the same survey.

If the Old Windsor property is a flat, or is an older property, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out major works on the property, you should you opt for a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap, however it will give a thorough analysis of the Old Windsor property's state of repair as well as information on defects as well as maintenance options .

Gas flame

Does the chartered surveyor go into detail on the safety of the gas supply?

The qualified surveyor will visually check the easily accessible parts of the gas system. This will include the routing of any gas pipes at the building, as well as gas connected fittings e.g. chimney breasts. Your Old Windsor RICS chartered surveyor won't actually remove gas fittings nor will the surveyor conduct any tests on the system. Anything related to gas should be handled with care as it is potentially fatal, if you have any worries about gas, call a gas engineer.

Building Surveys on houses

Are there any reasons for conducting the full structural survey as opposed to a HomeBuyer Report when considering a doer-upper house?

Structural Surveys are no longer offered as a new type of survey which is named the Building Survey, is now available. You should go for a RICS Building Survey for the house you are contemplating. A HomeBuyer Report goes into enough detail if buying a post fifties unmodified Old Windsor property made out of typical building materials.

Be aware that certain restrictions come with any survey insofar as a RICS surveyor cannot, unless safe to do so and with consent from the owner, force or open up the structure of the house of assess serviceability of a boiler.

Roof defects identified during a survey

The estate agent said that the had been a problem with subsidence - Will access to the roofing be difficult to arrange?

This often causes anxiety for Old Windsor buyers who have had to shell out for major repairs in the past. Many homes will suffer difficulties with the roof, for example, incorrectly applied waterproofing. Every element should be checked, e.g. concrete tiles, and where the matter is serious, it should be rectified promptly.

High estimates for roofing jobs (such as wholesale replacement) may have scared off some homeowners from carrying out necessary work. In extreme cases, this may be the reason for the sale, so buyers must be vigilant and employ the services of a qualified surveyor before the exchange of contracts. A quote for the work could be sought from a reliable Old Windsor roofing contractor. Contact Avenir Roofing of Serving Old Windsor on 0800 163955 for details.
