HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to get a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a home in Brackla and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey and is effectively the same comprehensive survey.

If the Brackla property is an apartment, or is a period property, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out alterations, RICS advise you choose a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap, but it does provide you with a thorough analysis of the Brackla property's general condition in addition to information on defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

Gas flame

Will the RICS surveyor give details on the serviceability of the gas flues?

A surveyor will locate and visually survey any accessible parts of the system. This will include the mains gas installation for instance, as well as gas related fixtures, for instance associated asbestos. The gas fittings won't be removed. The gas system won't be tested in any way. Gas is potentially dangerous, should there be any worries relating to gas installations, call a gas safe engineer.

Substandard guttering

For the Brackla HomeBuyer Report, what effect will a green light rating have on rainwater pipes and gutters?

RICS HomeBuyer Reports are transparent, detailed surveys of residential property, unlike some more complex survey reports. A 'traffic light' system of colour coding is used to confirm the severity of defects uncovered during the survey. A rating of 1 is the highest, meaning that this aspect of the Brackla house being surveyed does not need urgent attention. This rating does not, however, mean that no future maintenance is required. Regular upkeep may still be appropriate or even necessary. Some areas may be marked as 'Not inspected'. Irrelevant subsections of the HomeBuyer Report, like an assessment of a conservatory where the home in question does not have one, are disregarded. External areas covered by E3 are inspected visually. Buyers should be aware that although drainage is reported on in this section, other aspects of the water system are referred to elsewhere combined system problems. Undersized gutters is an example.

Damaged Render

What kind of problems will the Surveyor look out for on a smooth stucco Victorian home in Brackla.

Stucco is in fact a smooth and flat render. Usually it is applied to brick (sometimes also ceilings) hardens to form a smooth flat finish. It is very attractive and is often found on Regency buildings. Stucco is often problematic and Brackla Homebuyer Reports can reveal defects for instance when movement of the wall leads to cracks that allow for water penetration. Other issues could result from the burden of heavy load such as cracking under concrete slate roofs. Re-coating problems can be difficult as the skills are becoming harder to find.
