HomeBuyer Report

Should I have a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a house in Brent and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey, although it is effectively the same level of survey.

If the Brent property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction, then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any alterations on the property, RICS recommend you go for a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap but it does give comprehensive details of the Brent property's state of repair along with advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

If in doubt why not obtain a Brent Survey Quote on our website or call us 0800 038 6667 to speak to our survey team.

Gas flame

Does the qualified RICS surveyor report on the safety of the gas installations?

The RICS surveyor will locate and visually check out the easily accessible parts of the gas system. This will include the gas pipe route at the home, as well as gas connected appliances like chimney breasts. Any external fittings or housings however, won't be taken off. The system won't be tested at all. Gas is potentially deadly and if there are any worries relating to gas installations, contact a gas safe engineer.

House Prices

I am going to buy a property in Brent. What things does the Brent qualified surveyor evaluate on a RICS survey ?

There are a great number of factors which could have a bearing on house prices from proximity to road noise to overall area pricing. .

An impartial way for home buyers to get a formal house valuation is to commission a Homebuyer Report which includes a Property Valuation Report (PVR) by default.

A qualified RICS surveyor should make a site visit to the property as well as allowing for all other area issues that have a bearing on values.

Defective door frame

On the HomeBuyer Report what effect can a Condition rating 2 have on 'E6 - Outside doors' ?

A fairly common example may be cracked door glass. Outside doors are to be opened and closed, but will not force open any without keys. Broadly speaking, the seal condition of double glazing is covered.

Issues requiring some attention are labelled condition rating 2. In contrast to more serious, 'red' rated, defects, these issues do not require immediate attention. The RICS HomeBuyer Report is designed to be user-friendly. The report uses colour coded condition ratings to give property buyers a clear understanding of to what extent each defect requires attention.
