HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to select a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a property in Plympton and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey but is effectively the same.

If the Plympton property is a flat or maisonette, or is a period property, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any major works, RICS advise you carry out a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap, however it will provide you with a thorough analysis of the Plympton property's condition as well as advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

Gas flame

Will the Plympton surveyor check the condition of the gas mains supply?

Your RICS chartered surveyor will locate and visually check out the accessible parts of the gas system. A surveyor will want to inspect gas heaters where relevant, as well as gas related appliances/installations such as balanced flues. The gas fittings will not be dislodged. The system won't be tested. Most people are aware that gas can be unsafe, if you have any concerns about gas fittings at all, , call a gas safe engineer.

Building Surveys on flats 1

Is it the right choice to get a full structural survey prior to purchasing a defective sixties converted flat in Plympton?

The Full Structural Survey is now known as the Building Survey. If you are planning to buy an unusual Plympton flat e.g. a structurally modified flat, this is now the right property survey. The report spells out in depth and far-reaching advice in relation to the homes standard of construction and repair along with any maintenance needs, following a thorough inspection of the inside and outside of the main building. Furthermore flats frequently add complexity as the surveyor will only check the flat itself, however he may give details of communal parts of the property like the roof. For more details and a survey comparison look at surveys compared.

Damage resulting from flooding

Does a home buyers survey investigate flooding damage?

Last year was the second wettest year on record (source: BBC News); sensible owners and home buyers in Plympton are right to consider precautions.

As with many aspects of home ownership, flood prevention is better (and cheaper) than a cure, and a property surveyor will advise on repairs or preventative measures. Section J of the survey report contains details, where applicable, of flooding risks found within the boundaries of the Plympton home or on adjacent sites. Flooding issues will only be raised in Section J of a home survey if the property surveyor observes or has reason to suspect that the Plympton home is at risk.
