HomeBuyer Report

Should we have a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a property in Amesbury and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey but is essentially the same comprehensive survey.

If the Amesbury property is a flat, or is an older property, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make significant alterations, RICS advise you carry out a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap however it does give you comprehensive details of the Amesbury property's state of repair in addition to information on defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

Damage caused by high rainfall

Are wet conditions an issue in Amesbury? Could it affect the property value?

Climate change is regularly in the news. However this issue is not given the attention it deserves by purchasers. As an example, leaves or other vegetation causing a blockage could mean that the drainage systems are damaged. If you have doubts, consider asking the surveyor for more information.

These issues are, generally speaking, straightforward to remedy. However, if the drains are not cared for, the resulting damage can lower the value of the property and become increasing harder to repair.

Gas flame

Does the surveyor check the condition or the safety of the gas heaters?

Your qualified surveyor will locate and visually examine the accessible parts of the system. This will include gas heaters where relevant, as well as gas related appliances or installations e.g. prefabricated flues. External covers won't however be dislodged. The gas system won't be tested at all. Needless to say, gas can be unsafe, should there be any concerns relating to gas installations, contact a gas safe engineer.

Building Surveys on houses

As it is more expensive, what is the argument for having a full structural survey when acquiring a dilapidated semi detached townhouse near Amesbury as opposed to a HomeBuyer Report?

Often described as the Structural Survey by agents and buyers alike, this survey is no longer offered and has been given a new name by RICS and the correct term is now the RICS Building Survey. When buying an altered home e.g. a period Amesbury house - this is now the right survey to choose to complete. Following a thorough visual inspection of any accessible parts, the RICS surveyors report will be emailed (pdf format) and posted to the purchaser summarising any far-reaching information in relation to the construction materials used on the home.

There will be several provisos with a property survey because RICS chartered surveyor is not in a position to open up the fabric of the of the Amesbury house, an example being the removing loft contents.
