HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to get a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a home in Trimdon and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey but is essentially the same level of survey.

If the Trimdon property is a flat, or is an older property, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out any major works, you should you opt for a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it does offer comprehensive details of the Trimdon property's general condition as well as more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Gas flame

Does the Trimdon surveyor look at the condition of the gas installations?

Yes. Your qualified RICS surveyor will locate and visually inspect the accessible parts of the gas system. This will include the meter location/position where relevant, as well as gas connected appliances like balanced flues. However, the Trimdon surveyor won't remove any external fittings and surveyors are not qualified to conduct any tests on the functionality of the gas system. Most people are aware that gas is potentially deadly, if you have any concerns about gas, contact a gas safe engineer without delay.

Shocking Electrics

When I went to see the unmodernised property I intend to lease, it appeared that there are doubts as to then safety of the electrical system, does a Homebuyer Report in Trimdon write anything on any faults with the electrics?

When conducting a Trimdon Building Survey a RICS surveyor should usually report on the overall electrical system if it appears that they are in a less than satisfactory state. A Surveyor is expected to report back on concerns such as whether there is an on-peak/off-peak mains supply. Reporting on any evidence of a test on the condition of the electrical wiring carried out by an electrician on the property being surveyed should be part of the survey.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

What directions can a Trimdon property surveyor offer for homes built with brick walls?

Brick-walled residences in Trimdon can experience both minor and serious issues. This could be anything from spalling to moisture damage. A defect requiring immediate attention is damp and water damage resulting from gaps in uneven brickwork. For more information, contact a local builder, Payne Paul Bricklaying Contractors Ltd of 37A Church Rd, Tiptree, Colchester, CO5 0SU on 01621 819300.

As an example, English garden wall bond or stretcher bond may be used in the construction of residences in Trimdon.
