Home Buyers Survey in Trimdon

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to get a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a home in Trimdon and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey but is essentially the same level of survey.

If the Trimdon property is a flat, or is an older property, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out any major works, you should you opt for a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it does offer comprehensive details of the Trimdon property's general condition as well as more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Timber damage by insect larvae

My friend spotted signs of bugs in the dining room - What should we do?

Infestations can range from the mild and harmless, to the seriously harmful. Regrettably, pest problems can be costly to fix and affect the health of residents. An affected home may not always be easy to identify, house longhorn beetles can be identified by evidence of small tunnels through beams and floorboards, burrowed by the larvae. Remedies can take time, so if you opt to proceed with the purchase, check with a specialist how long treatment will take.RICS guidelines on the issue of pest problems are something of a 'grey-area', so specific fears should be mentioned to your RICS surveyor.

Gas flame

Does the Trimdon surveyor look at the condition of the gas installations?

Yes. Your qualified RICS surveyor will locate and visually inspect the accessible parts of the gas system. This will include the meter location/position where relevant, as well as gas connected appliances like balanced flues. However, the Trimdon surveyor won't remove any external fittings and surveyors are not qualified to conduct any tests on the functionality of the gas system. Most people are aware that gas is potentially deadly, if you have any concerns about gas, contact a gas safe engineer without delay.

Defective door frame

In the HomeBuyer Report, what impact will a an amber light rating have on outside doors?

The RICS HomeBuyer Report is designed to be user-friendly, with a minimum of technical jargon. The report uses colour coded condition ratings to give home purchasers a clear understanding of to what extent each defect requires attention. Defects which need some attention are rated 'amber' or condition rating 2, but this may not be urgent. In Trimdon, an example may be a rotted, damp wooden door frame. External doors are checked, assuming keys are available. Broadly speaking, glazing and safety glass issues are also checked.
