Home Buyers Survey in Oldbury

HomeBuyer Report

Should I choose a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a property in Oldbury and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey and is effectively the same comprehensive survey.

If the Oldbury property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any significant alterations on the property, it would be better that you opt for a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap but it will offer exhaustive analysis of the Oldbury property's state of repair as well as advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Building Surveys on houses

When acquiring a defective regency detached property in Oldbury - is it best to commission a full structural survey?

The Full Structural Survey is now known as a Building Survey. When buying an altered Oldbury home, for example a property in poor condition house, this is now the most appropriate RICS survey. It will provide thorough and important professional advice in relation to the homes construction materials in addition to any defects after a thorough inspection of the accessible parts of the house. Permanent outbuildings will typically be reported on.

Stone block wall damage

Can Darley Dale stone-built property be hard to maintain. Are there specific problems to consider?

Britain's geology has encouraged the use of many varieties of stone, from Monks Park Limestone to Hopton Wood Limestone. Faults common to poorly maintained stone walls can include cracks.

Regular stone walls are built with prepared or cut stone, called ashlar, and are often easier to maintain than irregular walls. In addition, lime mortar may feature in the building's construction. A survey will include a range of suggestions or requirements for maintenance, such as careful removal of nearby trees and plants. Be careful not to pull these up by the roots, as they could already be intertwined with the wall's foundations, which will cause more damage.

Gas flame

Does the chartered surveyor give details on the condition or the safety of the gas supply?

The will visually check out the accessible parts of the system. This will include the meter location/position as part of the survey, as well as gas associated fixtures like fixed external ventilation hearths. The external fittings won't be removed. The system will not be tested in any way. Anything related to gas should be handled with care as it can be hazardous, should you have any worries relating to gas installations at all, , call a gas safe engineer.
