HomeBuyer Report

Should we have a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a property in Woolavington and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey, however it is essentially the same survey.

If the Woolavington property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any an extension, RICS advise you select a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap, however it does provide you with exhaustive analysis of the Woolavington property's condition as well as advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

I am looking for London brick maintenance tips - can a Woolavington property surveyor assist? Will it make a difference if render is applied?

Brick-constructed houses in Woolavington feature several advantages, but they can also experience considerable issues, ranging from thermal movement to crypto-florescence. For example, diagonal cracking caused by ground movement and may require immediate attention. Contact Mab Brickwork for a repairs estimate at 07947 998322 or 49 Turners Meadow Way, Beckenham, BR3 4TG.

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

Consider the advice of both the surveyor and a builder or other specialist if potential structural defects arise during the survey.

Gas flame

Will the Woolavington surveyor advise on the condition or the safety of the gas supply?

A RICS surveyor will locate and visually check out any easily accessible parts of the system. The survey will include the condition of the meter for example, in addition to gas associated installations like balanced flues (where immediately extended from appliance/external element).. Your Woolavington chartered surveyor will not remove the fittings and surveyors are not qualified to conduct any tests of any kind on the appliances or system. Anything related to gas should be handled with care as it is potentially hazardous, should you have any worries about gas fittings, call a gas engineer.

Regulations stipulate landlords must to carry out appliance and installation inspections every 12 months and punishments for failure to comply include heavy fines or imprisonment .

Conservation area

Will there be any things we should be wary of if intending to buy a converted flat in Woolavington in the vicinity of conservation area ?

There are around ten thousand of conservation areas in England and Wales which are designated by local councils. Woolavington surveyors are required by RICS to possess local knowledge of local issues and any bearing they have on the building and its value. Property values is generally greater which is down to the areas being preserved. However many areas are falling into disrepair e.g. the unsightly effect of billboard advertising

Property surveyors are trained to advise you if the property could be so designated and Section I Issues for your legal advisers of a Homebuyer Report will suggest further investigations are raised by your solicitor. Unconsented changes to the building may be advised, however these should be concern for your conveyancer.
