About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Watlington

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to get a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a home in Watlington and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same.

If the Watlington property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out any major works, RICS advise you commission a Building Survey. This option is less cheap, but it does provide you with a more detailed analysis of the Watlington property's condition as well as advice on defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

Gas flame

Does a RICS chartered surveyor check the safety of the gas flues?

The chartered surveyor will visually inspect the accessible parts of the gas system. This will include gas heaters at the property, as well as gas connected gas installations in the house e.g. flue/chimney maintenance. The fittings won't actually be undone. Needless to say, gas is potentially fatal, should there be any concerns about gas fittings, call a gas engineer.

Timber damage by insect larvae

We are buying in Watlington, and think we saw signs of insects in the bathroom. Do we need a surveyor?

Infestations can range from the mild and harmless, to the seriously harmful. Regrettably, vermin can seriously reduce the value of a property and carry serious health risks. An affected property may not always be easy to identify, mice are able to squeeze through even small gaps and holes, and quickly spread disease through their droppings. Remedies to vermin can include traps. If you believe cluster flies, or any pest, may be present, request that your surveyor pay close attention during the survey.
