HomeBuyer Report

Should I have a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a house in Twickenham and which would be the cheapest?

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

If the Twickenham property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any works or an extension, you should you carry out a Building Survey. This option is less cheap but it will give you a more detailed analysis of the Twickenham property's general condition and it includes advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

For more information you can get an instant Twickenham Homebuyers Survey Quote or call 0800 038 6667 to speak to one of our advisers.

Other external areas of the property

On the HomeBuyer Report, can you give some examples of a green light rating defects for factors covered in Section E?

A 'green' condition rating of 1 confirms that no repairs are required, but this does not mean that no future work is required. Seasonal checks may still be appropriate to prevent deterioration. In some cases, an element covered under Section E may be marked as NI, or 'Not inspected'. Irrelevant subsections of the HomeBuyer Report, like an assessment of a conservatory where the home in question does not have one, are disregarded.

The part of the HomeBuyer Report mentions other aspects that do not sit comfortably elsewhere in section E. Contact your surveyor if you require more information. Loose railings is an example of a Section E defect.

Gas flame

Does a local surveyor report on the serviceability of the gas mains supply?

A RICS chartered surveyor will locate and visually check out any easily accessible parts of the gas system. A surveyor will want to inspect the mains gas installation at the home, as well as gas related appliances such as flue/chimney maintenance. The Twickenham qualified surveyor won't actually remove any fittings nor will the surveyor run any tests on the serviceability of the system. Most people are aware that gas is potentially dangerous, should you have any concerns about gas fittings, call a gas safe engineer.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

We need brick wall upkeep suggestions, can a surveyor in Twickenham help? Does brick decay faster in Twickenham weather?

Brick-walled structures in Twickenham can be affected by both minor and serious issues, from moisture damage to badly applied render. For instance, patchwork cracks caused by tie failure. This cracking may only be visible internally, and is accompanied by an irregular wall surface and should be taken very seriously. A local builder should be able to assist. Call J & P Builders (Bristol) Ltd, 95 Church Rd, Bishopsworth, Bristol, BS13 8JU on 0117-964 6622 for a quote for repair work.

A number of popular courses and methods of brick building can be found across Twickenham. Maintenance work may be more time-consuming and costly than you assume.
