About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Richmond Upon Thames

HomeBuyer Report

Should we go for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a house in Richmond Upon Thames and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey but is essentially the same.

If the Richmond Upon Thames property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials, then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make any major works, RICS recommend you opt for a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap however it does offer a thorough analysis of the Richmond Upon Thames property's general condition as well as including an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

Building Surveys on apartments

We are acquiring a defective regency apartment property, should I order a full structural survey?

Structural surveys are now known as Building Surveys. Choose a RICS Building Survey for the apartment you describe. A HomeBuyer Report has enough detail if investigating a non period unmodified home of typical building materials i.e. brick and tile.

There are a number limitations are integral with a Building Survey because a surveyor cannot open up the fabric of the building nor can he/she inspect any part that could risk personal injury.

Gas flame

Will the Richmond Upon Thames surveyor inspect the safety of the gas mains supply?

A qualified surveyor will locate and visually look at any accessible parts of the system. This means things like the location of the meter where relevant, as well as gas connected gas installations in the house such as ventilation of flue (if blocked). Your Richmond Upon Thames qualified surveyor will not remove any external fittings or housings and won't do any tests on the serviceability of the system. Anything related to gas should be handled with care as it can be dangerous, should you have any concerns relating to gas installations, contact a gas safe engineer.
