Home Buyers Survey in South Bromley

HomeBuyer Report

Should I choose a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a property in South Bromley and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey, however it is basically the same the same.

If the South Bromley property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any an extension, RICS recommend you go for a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap however it does provide you with exhaustive analysis of the South Bromley property's state of repair as well as including information on defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

Shocking Electrics

When I viewed the house I am intending to lease, it appeared that there is an unsafe electrical system - does a the surveyor advise on the electrical system?

When performing a Building Survey in South Bromley a qualified surveyor will typically report on the electrics if it is clear that they are in a hazardous state of repair. A Home surveyor is required to focus on things like examining the condition of any fitted appliances, for example electric showers or reporting on the condition of a sample of the range of light fittings and switch gear. Inspecting any evidence of any recent PIR carried out by an electrician will usually be part of the survey.

The IEE suggest a Periodic Inspection is carried out at least every 10 years (or every 5 if letting).

Gas flame

Does the chartered surveyor go into detail on the safety of the gas appliances?

The qualified surveyor will visually survey any easily accessible parts of the gas system. This will mean gas related areas such as whether the mains is connected where relevant, as well as gas associated fixtures e.g. the possibility of asbestos. Your South Bromley local surveyor won't remove the fittings nor will the surveyor do any tests of any kind on the functionality of the gas system. Gas is potentially unsafe, should you have any worries about gas fittings of any type, call a gas engineer.

Traditionally built property

We are buying in South Bromley. What will we need to investigate when buying an old building? What consequences will the wooden structure have on regular maintenance?

Many buyers in South Bromley have looked at purchasing a old, characterful home one day. For houses in South Bromley built before the 20th Century, age, however, can occasionally give buyers second thoughts. South Bromley homes constructed with traditional or "vernacular" techniques can be costly to maintain. It is often the case that expert knowledge is necessary. Materials suitable for the work may also need to be sourced, particularly in the case of South Bromley listed buildings. If the home you are buying may require specialist maintenance, contact your surveyor for further advice.

Building Surveys on houses

Should I acquire the full structural survey if purchasing a substantially modified fifties cottage in South Bromley as an alternative to a HomeBuyer Report?

Regularly, and incorrectly, described as a Full Structural Survey, it is no longer offered and has been given a new title by the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors and the proper name is now the Building Survey. You should plump for a Building Survey for the house you are planning to buy. The HomeBuyer Report is all you really need if investigating a mid century or later unmodified South Bromley home of standard building materials.

Be aware that a few limitations are integral with any survey as a local South Bromley surveyor will not be able to, unless safe to do so and with consent from the owner, open up the structure of the property of comment on the regulatory compliance of heating systems.
