HomeBuyer Report

Should I have a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a home in Queens Park and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey but is effectively the same survey.

If the Queens Park property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials, then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make an extension, it would be better that you go for a Building Survey instead. This more detailed survey is less cheap but it will give you a thorough analysis of the Queens Park property's state of repair as well as information on defects as well as maintenance options .

Gas flame

Will a qualified surveyor go into detail on the state of the gas heaters?

Your local surveyor will visually examine any easily accessible parts of the gas system. This will include gas heaters (also LPG/oil/electric) for instance, in addition to gas connected fixtures, for instance chimney breasts. The Queens Park RICS chartered surveyor won't remove external fittings or housings and surveyors are not qualified to conduct any tests of any kind on the functionality of the gas system. Needless to say, gas is potentially hazardous, if you have any worries about gas fittings, contact a gas safe engineer without delay.

Regulations require that all landlords are obligated to conduct appliance and installation inspections every 12 months and punishments for failure to comply include heavy fines or imprisonment .

Timber damage by insect larvae

Will an infestation affect the purchase price of a Queens Park building. Will a chartered surveyor look into this?

Scare stories about house vermin are plentiful, it is tempting to treat signs of pests such as cluster flies as minor annoyances. Pests quite literally come in all shapes and sizes, and can be more difficult to treat than many buyers realise. An affected house may not always be easy to identify, for example, termites are still rare in the UK, but may be present in imported timber. They are capable of almost hollowing out beams before they are discovered and can therefore put the structural integrity of a home at serious risk. Treatment for a serious infestation may include removal or excision of affected timber. Your chartered surveyor may report on signs of infestation, especially if you have raised your concerns beforehand.

Shocking Electrics

When I viewed the house I expect to buy I think we saw that there is an unsafe electrical system; will the Queens Park surveyor report on the wiring and electrical system?

When performing a Home Buyers Survey in Queens Park the home surveyor will typically remark on the electrical system if it is suspected that the electrics are in an unsafe state. A Surveyor should also report on concerns such as checking any outside installations, for example outbuildings or any garden lighting. Reporting on any documentation from any recent PIR conducted by a suitably qualified electrician will be part of the survey. Inspecting the evidence of a test on the condition of the electrical wiring handled by an electrician should usually form part of the survey.

The IEE advocate a Periodic Inspection be conducted every ten years (5 if renting out).
