HomeBuyer Report

Should I opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a property in Barrow upon Humber and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey but is effectively the same survey.

If the Barrow upon Humber property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make any alterations, it would be better that you opt for a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap but it will give you exhaustive analysis of the Barrow upon Humber property's general condition in addition to advice on structural defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

Gas flame

Will a Barrow upon Humber surveyor look at the condition of the gas supply?

Your will visually inspect the accessible parts of the system. The survey will include gas heaters (also LPG/oil/electric) for example, in addition to gas affiliated gas installations in the house e.g. fixed external ventilation hearths. Your Barrow upon Humber RICS chartered surveyor will not remove any external fittings nor will they carry out any tests on the serviceability of the system. Gas is potentially deadly, should there be any concerns about gas fittings, call a gas safe engineer.

Damage caused by high rainfall

Is it recommended that we consider gutters? Also, where there [var10], what should we do?

As a frequent surveyor of local property, I find it strange that damp weather and the effect it can have on buildings in Barrow upon Humber are not considered. One indication that rainwater goods are a cause for concern is corroded downspouts. Poor drainage can lead to fungi or mould which can be a health risk.

In most cases, these defects are usually easy to repair, if identified early. However, if the drains are left untreated, the resulting damage can lower the value of the property and become increasing harder to repair.

Shocking Electrics

When we went to see a sixties house we are meaning to lease We noticed that there is deterioration in the wiring and RCD unit; does a surveyor go into detail on any faults with the electrics?

When carrying out a Barrow upon Humber Homebuyer Report a qualified surveyor should add detail on the state of the electrics if it is suspected that they are in an unsatisfactory state of repair. A Chartered surveyor is expected to provide detail on issues like verifying the condition of any fitted appliances e.g. water heaters or verifying the condition of any visible wiring. Ascertaining the whereabouts of any documentation from a test on the condition of the electrical installations conducted by an electrician should form part of the Homebuyer report in Barrow upon Humber.
