Home Buyers Survey in Summerhill

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to book a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a property in Summerhill and of the 3, which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey but is essentially the same.

If the Summerhill property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction, then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any significant alterations on the Summerhill property, it would be better that you commission a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap, however it does provide you with a more detailed analysis of the Summerhill property's general condition as well as more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

External walls

In the HomeBuyer Report can you give some examples of an red light rating defects for 'E4 - Main walls' ?

In Summerhill, an example may be an improperly end bearing lintel. The surveyor's report on the condition of the external walls will consider all visible defects. The damp proof course is also covered under Section E4. Serious concerns are marked as condition rating 3. These can include dangers such as the suspected presence of asbestos, or extensive structural damage. The format of the RICS HomeBuyer Report is clear and easy to read, and avoid potentially unfamiliar technical language. A 'traffic light' system of colour coding is used to confirm the severity of any defects or points of interest included in the report.

Gas flame

Does the qualified RICS surveyor report on the condition or the safety of the gas appliances?

The surveyor will visually look at any easily accessible parts of the gas system. This will mean gas related areas such as whether the mains is connected at the home, as well as gas affiliated appliances or installations, for instance fixed external ventilation hearths. Your Summerhill RICS surveyor will not remove any external fittings or housings and won't run any tests on the appliances or system. Gas is potentially unsafe, if you have any worries about gas fittings, call an engineer without delay.

Shocking Electrics

When I was shown the unmodernised property I intend to purchase it appeared that there were damaged electrical sockets, does a surveyor go into detail on the wiring and fusebox?

When carrying out a Summerhill Homebuyer Report a surveyor will usually mention the overall electrical system if it is obvious that the electrics are in a hazardous state of repair. The RICS surveyor is required to report on things like the main electricity supply. Reporting on any evidence of the most recent Periodic Inspection Report carried out by an electrician will form part of the survey.
