About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Ladywood

HomeBuyer Report

Should we opt for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a property in Ladywood and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same survey.

If the Ladywood property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out any major works, it would be better that you select a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap however it will provide you with comprehensive details of the Ladywood property's condition as well as advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

Damage caused by high rainfall

What impact could rainfall have on a property? Where there are problems, what should we do?

I find it odd that this issue is overlooked by house purchasers. One indication that drainage are blocked is spattered mud around the bottom of downspouts. Luckily, drainage problems are generally easy to remedy.However, the damage caused, where not cleared out regularly, will be expense to remedy and resulting damp and mould could become a health risk.

Deteriorated timber

On a Ladywood HomeBuyer Report, what might 'E8' cover?

The RICS HomeBuyer Report is designed to be user-friendly, unlike some more complex survey reports. The report uses colour coded condition ratings to give house buyers a clear understanding of the seriousness of any issues included in the survey. Not inspected' is used to indicate those subsections of Section E which do not apply to the house. Irrelevant subsections of the HomeBuyer Report, like an assessment of a conservatory where the home in question does not have one, are disregarded. A fairly common example may be vines. Section E8 covers more decorative aspects of the property's exterior, inspected with the aid of binoculars where appropriate. Ornamental joinery such as finials or mock Tudor panelling will be covered.

Gas flame

Will the qualified surveyor report on the condition or the safety of the gas supply?

Yes. Your surveyor will visually check the accessible parts of the gas system. The surveyor will look at the routing of any gas pipes at the building, in addition to gas related fixtures such as flue/chimney maintenance. Should there be any external fittings they won't actually be taken off. The gas system will not be tested. Of course, gas can be fatal, should you have any concerns relating to gas installations, contact a gas safe engineer without delay.

The 1998 Gas Safety Regulations stipulate that all landlords are obligated to conduct appliance and installation inspections annually and punishments for failure to comply are severe .
