HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to opt for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a property in Ashbourne and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same.

If the Ashbourne property is a flat, or is an older property, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out major works, RICS recommend you go for a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap however it does provide you with an in-depth analysis of the Ashbourne property's state of repair in addition to information on defects , repairs as well as maintenance options .

Does a RICS chartered surveyor go into detail on the safety of the gas flues?

Your local surveyor will visually inspect any easily accessible parts of the system. The surveyor will look at whether the meter is in an escape route at the home, in addition to gas related fixtures such as fixed external ventilation hearths.
