HomeBuyer Report

Should we get a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a property in Aspley Guise and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same level of survey.

If the Aspley Guise property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any major works, RICS recommend you choose a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap however it will provide you with an in-depth analysis of the Aspley Guise property's general condition as well as including more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

For more detailed advice you can get a Aspley Guise Home Survey Quote on our website or call us 0800 038 6667 to speak to our survey team.

Timber damage by insect larvae

Will vermin affect the purchase price of a home in Aspley Guise. Do we need a surveyor?

Questions regarding the infestation of a Aspley Guise property may not be raised during the conveyancing.

Unfortunately, the threat posed by these to property is very real, and can seriously reduce the value of a property. It may not be obvious that a property is suffering

a severe pest problem, as evidence can be overlooked. As an example, cockroaches hide during the day, in light-fittings, beneath cracks in floor tiles or behind appliances. You may not spot them until moving in. Remedies to bug or other pest issues can include removal of infected furniture.

Gas flame

Does the local surveyor inspect the safety of the gas heaters?

A qualified RICS surveyor will visually examine any easily accessible parts of the gas system. A surveyor will want to inspect whether the mains is connected for example, in addition to gas associated fixtures e.g. the condition of gas piping in loft spaces. A Aspley Guise qualified surveyor won't remove external fittings or housings and surveyors are not qualified to do any tests on the gas system. Gas is potentially unsafe, should there be any worries about gas or if you smell gas, call an engineer.
