HomeBuyer Report

Should I get a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a house in South Brent and which would be the cheapest?

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

If the South Brent property is an apartment, or is a period property, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials, then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make alterations, RICS recommend you go for a Building Survey. This option is less cheap but it does provide you with a more detailed analysis of the South Brent property's state of repair as well as advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

Gas flame

Does a RICS chartered surveyor report on the safety of the gas mains supply?

A qualified surveyor will locate and visually survey any easily accessible parts of the system. The surveyor will look at the mains gas installation for example, in addition to gas connected fixtures, for instance chimney linings. A South Brent qualified RICS surveyor will not remove the external fittings or housings and won't run any tests of any kind on the system. Of course, gas can be unsafe, if you have any concerns about gas fittings, call a gas engineer.

Timber damage by insect larvae

Will bugs affect the purchase price of a property. What should we do?

Treatment for vermin may include traps.
