HomeBuyer Report

Should we go for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a property in Seven Kings and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey, although it is basically the same the same survey.

If the Seven Kings property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make alterations on the property, RICS recommend you carry out a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it will give you exhaustive analysis of the Seven Kings property's state of repair along with more detailed advice on defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

Stone block wall damage

We are purchasing an 1870s home in Seven Kings with stone walls. What problems must we watch out for?

Britain's range of geology has encouraged the use of many varieties of stone, from Stainton Sandstone to Totternhoe Limestone. The properties of a stone can affect wear as much as upkeep or construction. Irregular stone often has a more rustic appearance, but the mortar used may be susceptible to a higher rate of decay. Choice of stone will impact the lifespan of a structure, for example, slate is far more water-resistant than many other stones. These walls will need frequent upkeep.

Ask you surveyor for details, but the report may specify replacing missing or badly worn stones.

Gas flame

Will a Seven Kings surveyor go into detail on the serviceability of the gas heaters?

Your surveyor will locate and visually inspect any easily accessible parts of the gas system. The surveyor will look at whether the mains is connected at the building, as well as gas related installations e.g. chimney breasts or flues. However, the Seven Kings RICS chartered surveyor won't remove the external fittings or housings and he or she won't carry out any tests on the system or appliances. Needless to say, gas is potentially hazardous and if there are any concerns about gas fittings, contact a gas safe engineer.
