HomeBuyer Report

Should I choose a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a property in Acle and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same survey.

If the Acle property is a flat or maisonette, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out significant alterations on the property, you should you go for a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap, but it does give you exhaustive analysis of the Acle property's state of repair as well as including information on defects and maintenance options .

Roof defects identified during a survey

We have made an offer for a home with a converted attic in Acle. What will our surveyor investigate as part of the survey?

Acle properties in otherwise fine condition can often hide damage to the roof, including. Every element should be checked, e.g. concrete tiles. Your RICS surveyors may then recommend that some faults need urgent attention.

Given the high cost of major roof repairs like felting a flat roof, some homeowners may defer maintenance indefinitely. This makes both the cause and the consequences harder and even more expensive to treat when repairs do take place. Prior to exchange, it may be worth sourcing from a contractor in Acle a quote for any suggested work.

Damage resulting from flooding

What's the danger of flooding in Acle. Can a HomeBuyer Report inquire into indications of flooding damage?

It is estimated that over two million houses are at a high risk of water damage caused by flooding, and insurance premiums. can be significantly affected for houses in flood-risk areas. It is strongly recommended that a home is protected, before flooding begins, and a property surveyor will advise on repairs or preventative measures. Less expensive preventative measures include door guards. Also included on Environment Agency's flood danger alert are details of local rivers and other bodies of water prone to flooding.

Gas flame

Does the RICS chartered surveyor look at the serviceability of the gas flues?

Yes. Your qualified RICS surveyor will locate and visually examine any easily accessible parts of the system. This will mean gas related areas such as gas (and oil heaters) at the property, in addition to gas affiliated fittings such as ventilation of flue (if blocked). External fittings or housings however, won't be taken off. The gas system won't be tested in any way. Gas is potentially dangerous, should you have any worries relating to gas installations, contact a gas safe engineer.
