About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Cranford

HomeBuyer Report

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

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

If the Cranford property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out significant alterations, you should you go for a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap, however it will give a thorough analysis of the Cranford property's condition in addition to an opinion on defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

I've put in an offer in Cranford. What recommendations will a Cranford surveyor make?

Brick-walled Cranford structures can indicate numerous defects, ranging from crumbling mortar to moisture damage.

For example, brick rot, resulting from decades of exposure to condensation or damp at ground level and may require immediate attention. For more information, contact a local builder, All Brickwork of 11 Britten Gr, Old Farm Park, Milton Keynes, MK7 8PP on 01908 365853.

Cranford home purchasers may need to consider that a selection of different courses and brick making techniques may be found throughout England and Wales, and as such, repairs may be more involved than they appear.

Gas flame

Does a qualified surveyor report on the condition of the gas heaters?

Your will visually examine any easily accessible parts of the gas system. A surveyor will want to inspect the location of the meter at the home, as well as gas related appliances/installations e.g. chimney breasts. The external fittings or housings will not however be dislodged. Of course, gas is potentially hazardous, if you have any concerns about gas fittings or if you suspect a gas issue, contact a gas safe engineer.

Damage resulting from flooding

We are buying a property in Cranford, does the RICS surveyor consider possible water damage?

A wide variety of factors can cause flood damage, from inadequate drainage to tidal activity. Both purchasers and home owners in areas at risk of flooding are right to be worried. The Environment Agency maintain a flood warning service, with regular updated risk assessments, and a property surveyor will advise on repairs or preventative measures. Details relating to signs of flooding may be reported in Section J of the HomeBuyer Report. Flooding issues will only be raised in Section J of a house survey if the chartered surveyor observes or has reason to suspect that the property in Cranford is at risk.
