About Us

Home Buyers Survey in East Hunsbury

HomeBuyer Report

Should we go for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a property in East Hunsbury and which is cheaper?

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

If the East Hunsbury property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any significant alterations on the East Hunsbury property, RICS recommend you select a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap but it will provide you with comprehensive details of the East Hunsbury property's general condition along with information on defects as well as maintenance options .

External walls

For the East Hunsbury HomeBuyer Report what does 'E4 - Main walls' refer to?

For a East Hunsbury property, one issue is cracks in brick walls. Foundations and possible defects within the walls will not be investigated. If hidden issues with the walls or foundations are suspected, a more comprehensive structural survey may be advised. Observations on the Damp Proof Course are also reported here.

RICS created the HomeBuyer Report to give buyers a clear and easy to read report on the condition of the home they plan to buy. Three colour coded ratings give an understanding of to what extent each defect requires attention. Some areas may be marked as 'Not inspected'. The HomeBuyer Report has a standard format, which the surveyor will complete according to the nuances of the particular house or flat, omitting sections as necessary.

Gas flame

Does the East Hunsbury surveyor examine the safety of the gas flues?

Your will locate and visually survey any easily accessible parts of the system. This will include the location of the meter at the home, in addition to gas associated appliances for example - balanced flues. External covers won't be taken off. Most people are aware that gas is potentially unsafe and if there are any worries about gas fittings, contact a gas safe engineer.

Regulations require that all landlords have to conduct appliance and installation inspections yearly and punishments for failure to comply include heavy fines or imprisonment .

Damage caused by high rainfall

How will we know what impact should rainfall have on our new East Hunsbury home?

I find it odd that heavy rain and the effect it can have on homes in East Hunsbury are not considered. If you have only seen the house you are buying in on a sunny day, problems are unlikely to be visible. In most cases, drainage problems are quite easy to resolve for a reasonable cost. Where this is not maintained, the damage becomes increasing costly to remedy.
