HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to book a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a property in Almondsbury and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey but is essentially the same survey.

If the Almondsbury property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials, you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any alterations, you should you book a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it does offer comprehensive details of the Almondsbury property's general condition and it includes an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

Chimney stacks

In the HomeBuyer Report, what effect can a green light rating have on chimney stacks?

RICS created the HomeBuyer Report to give purchasers a clear and easy to read report on the condition of the home they plan to buy, with a minimum of technical jargon. Three colour coded ratings give an understanding of the impact on the property individual defects may have. Aspects of the property in good or excellent condition are marked as 'green' with a condition rating of 1, but this does not mean that no future work is required. Seasonal checks may still be appropriate to prevent deterioration.

An example of this is loose chimney vent connectors. Elements of the property covered by this section are inspected by eye from the ground as necessary.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

The brick on this Georgian house is badly worn - what should we do? Are brick walls hard to repair?

Almondsbury brick-walled converted property can show signs of several common problems, ranging from sulphate attack to frost damaged pointing. Defects like these ought to be referenced in the survey, with solutions or likely results if they are not resolved. One defect surveyors commonly report on brick buildings is diagonal cracks which widen as they move upwards. These may result from ground movement, or where a timber element of the wall has rotted away. Mab Brickwork at 49 Turners Meadow Way, Beckenham, BR3 4TG should give an estimate for any work. Call them on 07947 998322.

Brick-constructed property may be found throughout England and Wales, leading to a number of styles. E.g. Monk bond, which is similar to Flemish bond, but with two long bricks between every short one.

Gas flame

Will a Almondsbury surveyor go into detail on the condition of the gas supply?

A qualified surveyor will visually examine the easily accessible parts of the gas system. This will include the condition of the meter where relevant, in addition to gas associated fixtures e.g. the possibility of asbestos. External fittings will not however be taken off. The gas system will not be tested in any way. Needless to say, gas is potentially deadly, if you have any concerns relating to gas installations, call a gas engineer immediately.
