HomeBuyer Report

Should I get a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a property in Rochford and which is cheaper?

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

If the Rochford property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out alterations, it would be better that you commission a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap, however it will offer a thorough analysis of the Rochford property's general condition and it includes more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Timber damage by insect larvae

We are buying a Rochford home but are worried about bugs. What advice should we get?

Infestations can range from the mild and harmless, to the seriously harmful. This concern should be taken seriously. It is vital that buyers consider this oft-overlooked aspect when making an offer.

Signs may not be evident for weeks or months, silverfish are common in damp kitchens and bathrooms, but only appear at night, and can therefore be difficult to spot. Remedies to insect infestation can include professional cleaning or removal or excision of affected timber.

Traditionally built property

We are buying in Rochford. What will we need to think about when buying a building constructed in 1750? Will the house's age be a problem?

For traditionally-built Rochford property, age can create issues for homeowners. Properties constructed with traditional or "vernacular" techniques can be unexpectedly hard to upkeep. It is often the case that expert knowledge is necessary, and it could also be necessary to find Traditional building materials. If the property you are buying may require specialist maintenance, contact your building surveyor for more information.

Gas flame

Does a surveyor inspect the safety of the gas supply?

Your qualified surveyor will locate and visually inspect any easily accessible parts of the system. This will include gas heaters at the home, in addition to gas connected fixtures for example - associated asbestos. However, the Rochford qualified RICS surveyor won't remove the external fittings nor will they conduct any tests on the serviceability of the system. Most people are aware that gas is potentially fatal, should there be any concerns about gas fittings, call a gas safe engineer.
