Home Buyers Survey in Diss

HomeBuyer Report

Should I get a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a property in Diss and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey, although it is basically the same the same level of survey.

If the Diss property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out substantial modifications, RICS recommend you go for a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap, but it will give exhaustive analysis of the Diss property's general condition in addition to an opinion on defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

Damaged Render

What sort of thing will the Diss Surveyor take into account on a smooth stucco coated regency home in Diss which we wish to buy.

Stucco (aka pargetting) is actually just a form of render. Normally stucco is applied to brick to form a very smooth surface. Stucco is very appealing and is common on some Georgian homes. Stucco is often prone to defect and Surveyors sometimes discover potentially expensive to remedy problems which might include trapped water culminating in the surface breaking. Other potential problems may include attack from salts sucked out of bricks. Re-applying Stucco problems can be surprisingly expensive as the skills are becoming harder to find.

Gas flame

Does the chartered surveyor inspect the safety of the gas heaters?

The RICS chartered surveyor will visually look at the easily accessible parts of the gas system. A surveyor will want to inspect gas heaters as part of the survey, as well as gas associated fixtures, for instance ventilation of flue (if blocked). External fittings will not however be taken off. Needless to say, gas is potentially fatal, should there be any concerns relating to gas installations, call a gas engineer.
