Home Buyers Survey in Bicester

HomeBuyer Report

Should I book a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a house in Bicester and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey, although it is basically the same the same level of survey.

If the Bicester property is a flat or maisonette, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction, you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out major works, it would be better that you go for a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap however it does offer a thorough analysis of the Bicester property's condition in addition to advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

Conservatory

In a Bicester HomeBuyer Report, what are common a green light rating defects for conservatory and porches?

RICS created the HomeBuyer Report to give house buyers in Bicester a clear and easy to read report on the condition of the home they plan to buy. Three colour coded ratings give an understanding of how concerning each aspect of the report is. Aspects of the property in good or excellent condition are marked as 'green' with a condition rating of 1, but maintenance may still be necessary. In Bicester, an example may be steps or landing areas which are settling or heaving. E7 elements are visually inspected. Any signs of inappropriate use, such as using a conservatory as a bedroom or kitchen will also be mentioned in the report.

Gas flame

Will the surveyor go into detail on the serviceability of the gas installations?

A local surveyor will locate and visually look at any accessible parts of the gas system. The survey will include the meter location/position as part of the survey, in addition to gas related gas fittings in the home for example - fireplaces. The gas fittings won't however be taken off. Needless to say, gas is potentially hazardous, should you have any worries about gas, call a gas safe engineer.

Building Surveys on houses

Is it worth paying a higher price for a full structural survey when considering Victorian home in Bicester?

Building Survey is now the correct term for the Full Structural Survey following its new title in 2010 by RICS. Choose the Building Survey for the house outlined. A HomeBuyer Report is enough if investigating a post 1950s unmodified Bicester home made out of normal construction materials.

Be aware that certain restrictions come with a property survey as a RICS surveyor will not be able to (unless safe to do so) force or open up the structure of the property for example, or assess safety of gas sources.
