HomeBuyer Report

Should I go for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a house in Petersham and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same survey.

If the Petersham property is a flat, or is an older property, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make significant alterations, it would be better that you commission a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap, however it does provide you with a thorough analysis of the Petersham property's general condition as well as including advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

Window frame

On a Petersham HomeBuyer Report, what could a a green light rating mean for windows?

Condition rating one indicates that no repairs are necessary, but this does not mean that no future work is required. Seasonal checks may still be appropriate to prevent deterioration. RICS HomeBuyer Reports are transparent, detailed surveys of residential property. Colour coded ratings are used to communicate the seriousness of any issues included in the survey.

For a Petersham home, one issue is any broken glass windows. Where practicable, all windows are to be opened and closed, but not forced open, and vulnerable areas closely examined. The surveyor should make notes and advise the client whether it is possible to operate the window transoms/openings satisfactorily.

Gas flame

Will a qualified surveyor report on the serviceability of the gas flues?

A local surveyor will visually look at the accessible parts of the system. This will include whether the mains is connected for example, as well as gas connected appliances or installations e.g. ventilation of flue (if blocked). A Petersham RICS surveyor won't actually remove fittings and won't run any tests on the system. Needless to say, gas is potentially unsafe, should you have any worries relating to gas installations, contact a gas safe engineer.

Conservation area

Are there any potential pitfalls I should be conscious of if purchasing a converted flat in Petersham near a conservation area ?

There are 9, 300 of designated conservation areas in England and Wales that are designated and monitored by local authorities. Surveyors in Petersham are required by RICS to possess knowledge of local considerations and the bearing may have on the property. Values is generally higher than non conservation area equivalents owing to conservation areas retaining original features. However a growing number have fallen into a state for example - the excessive amount of traffic management signs

RICS surveyors are expected advise whether the property could be within a conservation area and the Section I Issues for your legal advisers of your Petersham Homebuyer Report will advise suitable questions are raised by your conveyancer. Unapproved modifications to the building will also be reported in the Petersham survey, however these should be concern for your legal adviser.
