About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Bourton on the Water

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to go for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a house in Bourton on the Water 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 Bourton on the Water property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any works or an extension, you should you opt for a Building Survey instead. This option is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it will provide you with a more detailed analysis of the Bourton on the Water property's general condition as well as including advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

Gas flame

Does the qualified RICS surveyor inspect the condition or the safety of the gas installations?

Your will visually survey any accessible parts of the system. This means things like the location of the meter at the building, as well as gas related fixtures for example - balanced flues. Your Bourton on the Water chartered surveyor won't remove any external fittings nor will the surveyor run any tests of any kind on the gas system. Of course, gas can be hazardous, should there be any concerns relating to gas installations, contact a gas safe engineer.

Gas regulations require that all landlords are obligated to conduct appliance and installation inspections annually. Non compliance penalties are severe .

Building Surveys on apartments

Should we choose a full structural survey prior to investing in a defective seventies loft apartment in Bourton on the Water?

Building Survey is the new name for the Structural Survey following its renaming a while ago by RICS. If you are buying an altered Bourton on the Water house, for example an unloved apartment - Building Survey is the most appropriate survey. It should outline comprehensive and often serious professional advice about the property's standard of construction and repair along with any defects, following a thorough visual inspection of the accessible parts. External sports facilities (buildings not the facilities themselves) should be inspected.

Damage resulting from flooding

Would our chartered surveyor search for indications of water damage, or if other houses on the street have been affected?

The Law Society estimate that 2.2m properties are in danger of flood damage. Both property purchasers and home owners in areas in danger of flooding are right to be worried. A surveyor has a number of options to assess whether a property is vulnerable. The house survey may also, where appropriate, offer suggestions for better flood defences.An awareness of characteristics of the Bourton on the Water area likely to affect the home also enables the property surveyor to advise flooding may be a risk. The Environment Agency also publish details of previous flood warnings.
