Home Buyers Survey in Ogmore By Sea

HomeBuyer Report

Should I book a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a property in Ogmore By Sea and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey and is basically the same the same survey.

If the Ogmore By Sea property is a flat or maisonette, or is a period property, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make any major works, it would be better that you opt for a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it will offer a more detailed analysis of the Ogmore By Sea property's condition and it includes more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

Other external areas of the property

On the HomeBuyer Report, can you give some examples of a green light rating defects for factors covered in Section E?

Elements of the residence which the surveyor has determined to be in a good state of repair are awarded a condition rating of 1. Nevertheless, the surveyor may still recommend that regular upkeep is carried out. RICS created the HomeBuyer Report to give house purchasers a clear and easy to read report on the condition of the home they plan to buy. As buyers in Ogmore By Sea are unlikely to be experts in local building techniques and materials themselves, the report is written with as little jargon as possible. The surveyor uses a scale between 1 and 3 to show how concerning each aspect of the report is.

The part of the HomeBuyer Report mentions other aspects that do not fit elsewhere in Section E. Your surveyor can provide more details if required. Sagging railings is an example of this.

Gas flame

Does a Ogmore By Sea surveyor go into detail on the safety of the gas heaters?

The will locate and visually survey any accessible parts of the gas system. A surveyor will want to inspect gas (and oil heaters) at the property, as well as gas related installations for example - prefabricated flues. The gas fittings won't however be detached. The gas system will not be tested at all. Needless to say, gas can be hazardous, should there be any worries about gas fittings, call a gas engineer.

Damage resulting from flooding

We are purchasing a house in Ogmore By Sea, does the property surveyor look for water damage, or if other properties have been affected?

Soil-clogged drainage, rain and overflowing waterways could all cause major flooding, and the value of a property can decrease if in an exposed area, even if it has never flooded.

As with many aspects of home ownership, flood prevention is better (and cheaper) than a cure. The Home Buyers Survey may also, where appropriate, offer suggestions for better flood defences.Familiarity with characteristics of the local area likely to affect property in Ogmore By Sea enables the chartered surveyor to surmise flooding may be a risk, even if the property has not itself flooded before. The chartered surveyor may ask the estate agent if the property in Ogmore By Sea has previously flooded. Note that the response to such enquires should not be exclusively relied upon.
