HomeBuyer Report

Should we have a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a house in Anston and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey, although it is effectively the same level of survey.

If the Anston property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any alterations on the Anston property, RICS recommend you go for a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap, however it will offer an in-depth analysis of the Anston property's state of repair and it includes an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

Gas flame

Will the qualified RICS surveyor look at the state of the gas supply?

Your RICS surveyor will visually examine the accessible parts of the gas system. This will include the meter location/position as part of the Anston survey, as well as gas connected appliances/installations like chimney breasts. Your Anston surveyor won't remove external fittings and he or she won't carry out any tests on the appliances or system. Gas is potentially unsafe, if you have any worries about gas fittings at all, , call a gas safe engineer.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

A house we intend to buy is built on clay soil. Will a Home Buyers Survey look into this?

The adverse impact clay soil can have on a house can be significant. Specific issues include movement of clay soil layers resulting from changes in their water content. The water content of clay soils determines volume, pushing upward, or pulling downward as the weather changes. This may result in some minor visible defects.. Signs like sticking window frames or widening cracks can be early indications of very serious structural issues.

Taking precautions, such as ensuring that the ground level declines away from the house, can make long term maintenance easier, and keep repair costs manageable. If soil moisture levels must be kept stable, uniform spread of the moisture is essential. Subsidence and heave can be caused by a general increase or decrease in moisture, but isolated patches of wet and dry can just as easily warp foundations, putting them under even greater pressure.

Shocking Electrics

When I was shown the unmodernised property I am possibly going to lease I think we saw that there is an old fuse board - will a Homebuyer Report in Anston report on any faults with the electrics?

During a Anston Home Survey the RICS surveyor will typically make a note on the electrical system if it is suspected that they are in a dangerous condition. A Chartered surveyor is required to focus on things like verifying the category of the electrical fittings in shower rooms or checking the state of a representative sample of the range of light fittings and switch gear. A check for the evidence of a test on the condition of the electrical wiring conducted by a suitably qualified electrician should usually form part of the survey.

The IEE (Institute of Electrical Engineers) advise a Periodic Inspection Report need be completed every 10 years (or every 5 if renting out).
