HomeBuyer Report

Should I have a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a property in Barnehurst and which one is cheaper?

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

If the Barnehurst property is a flat or maisonette, or is a period property, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any significant alterations, you should you opt for a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap, however it does give an in-depth analysis of the Barnehurst property's condition as well as including information on defects and maintenance options .

Building Surveys on houses

Shall I have a full structural survey when investing in a extended regency bungalow in Barnehurst rather than a HomeBuyer Report?

Often still described as a Full Structural Survey by many agents and buyers, this survey is no longer available and has been given a new moniker by RICS and the proper name is now the Building Survey. Choose the Building Survey for the house you describe. A HomeBuyer Report will suffice if buying a mid 20th

century of later unmodified house of conventional construction materials. Be aware that a few restrictions come with any residential survey - a qualified surveyor is not able to force or open up the structure of the Barnehurst house for example, or inspect under floor (unless accessible).

Damage caused by high rainfall

What effect may rain have on a Barnehurst building? Where there are issues, what should we do?

Despite England's reputation for wet weather the effect which heavy rainfall has on a structure is not considered.

Signs that drainage are a cause for concern include rotten wooden gutters. If you have suspicions, consider asking the surveyor for more information.

In most cases, these defects are quite easy to fix if dealt with quickly.

Gas flame

Does the qualified surveyor look at the safety of the gas heaters?

The surveyor will visually check out the accessible parts of the system. This will mean gas related areas such as the gas pipe route where relevant, as well as gas associated fixtures e.g. balanced flues. If there are any gas fittings they won't be taken off. Anything related to gas should be handled with care as it can be hazardous and if there are any worries about gas, call a gas engineer.

Regulations stipulate that all landlords are obligated to complete appliance and installation inspections every 12 months and punishments for failure to comply are harsh .
