About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Botley

HomeBuyer Report

Should I get a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a home in Botley and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same survey.

If the Botley property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make substantial modifications, RICS recommend you select a Building Survey instead. The Building Survey is not as cheap, however it does give exhaustive analysis of the Botley property's general condition in addition to more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

Roof defects identified during a survey

I am going to put in an offer in on a structure in Botley - Which issues relating to the attic will be investigated?

Properties in Botley in good condition can still be subject to damage to the roof. All aspects of the roof should be reviewed, from the slates to the ridge flashing. Flat roofs are also known for the trouble they can cause, often the result of a poor asphalt covering.

The expense of asbestos cement removal, or other major roof work, means that some owners put it off for as long as possible. This is a false economy, as such issues can lead to more severe general structural problems. A Botley roofing specialist with positive reviews should be able to assist with a quote.

Gas flame

Does the Botley surveyor look into the state of the gas flues?

A qualified RICS surveyor will visually survey the easily accessible parts of the gas system. This means things like the mains gas installation at the home, as well as gas affiliated fixtures for example - associated asbestos. However, the Botley local surveyor won't remove the gas fittings and surveyors are not qualified to do any tests whatsoever on the serviceability of the system. Gas is potentially dangerous, should there be any worries relating to gas installations or if you smell the distinctive smell of gas, call a gas engineer.
