About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Robin Hood

HomeBuyer Report

Should we have a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a property in Robin Hood and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey and is basically the same the same level of survey.

If the Robin Hood property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any substantial modifications, it would be better that you select a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it does offer comprehensive details of the Robin Hood property's condition along with advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

Timber damage by insect larvae

We are buying in Robin Hood, and think we saw signs of an infestation in the loft. Will the Building Survey investigate this?

Pests like carpet beetle larvae may sometimes seem a small, even irrelevant, matter when buying in Robin Hood. This concern should be taken seriously. It is vital that buyers consider this oft-overlooked aspect when making an offer.

Signs may not be evident for weeks or months. For example, mice are able to squeeze through even small gaps and holes, and quickly spread disease through their droppings. As some infestations can be very stubborn, knowing the risks, and chance of success before you buy is essential.

Gas flame

Does a RICS surveyor advise on the state of the gas installations?

A local surveyor will visually inspect any accessible parts of the system. The surveyor will look at the condition of the meter at the property, as well as gas related appliances or installations like fixed external ventilation hearths. Your Robin Hood RICS surveyor won't remove external fittings or housings nor will they run any tests of any kind on the functionality of the gas system. Needless to say, gas is potentially hazardous, should there be any concerns about gas, contact a gas safe engineer.
