Home Buyers Survey in Hatfield

HomeBuyer Report

Should we have a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a home in Hatfield and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey and is effectively the same comprehensive survey.

If the Hatfield property is a flat, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction, you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out any works or an extension, you should you carry out a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it does provide you with a more detailed analysis of the Hatfield property's state of repair and it includes more detailed advice on defects , repairs as well as maintenance options .

Gas flame

Will the qualified RICS surveyor advise on the safety of the gas appliances?

The will visually check the accessible parts of the system. This will mean gas related areas such as gas (and oil heaters) at the home, as well as gas connected installations like balanced flues. The gas fittings will not however be undone. Needless to say, gas can be unsafe and if there are any worries about gas, call a gas safe engineer.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

We need Scottish bond repair advice, can a Hatfield surveyor help?

Brick Hatfield residences will be affected by a number of issues. These can include efflorescence or sulphate expansion. Your Hatfield surveyor can investigate these as part of their report. One serious matter is damp and water damage resulting from gaps in uneven brickwork. Smith Steve at 5 Woburn Rd, Croydon, CR0 2AB should give an estimate for any work. Call them on 020 8686 3363.

As an example, Flemish bond, featuring alternating long and short faces of bricks.

If the Hatfield surveyor does raise concerns about a brick wall defect or structural issue, it may be wise to speak to a builder before completion to assess the extent and cost of the work.

Damage resulting from flooding

We are purchasing a property in Hatfield, does the building survey inquire into indications of water damage?

Overflowing rivers, rain and insufficient drainage can all result in extensive floods, and property buyers and owners are understandably concerned. Your RICS surveyor may use several methods to determine if the residence in question is in danger, and a property surveyor will advise on repairs or preventative measures. Section J of the survey report contains details, where applicable, of flooding risks found within the boundaries of the home in Hatfield or on adjacent sites. The surveyor may ask the occupier if the home in Hatfield has previously flooded. Note that the response to such enquires should not be exclusively relied upon.
