Which Building Survey is the right choice?

  • Property suitable for a Building Survey

HomeBuyer Report

Should I select a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a home in Brixham and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, although it is effectively the same survey.

If the Brixham property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any significant alterations, you should you commission a Building Survey instead. This more detailed survey is not as cheap however it will provide you with comprehensive details of the Brixham property's condition along with information on defects and maintenance options .

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Do all Brixham surveys include a valuation and reinstatement cost estimate

A Homebuyer Report on a Brixham property will include a valuation and a rebuilding cost. To be able to determine the market value your chartered surveyor will refer to experience of property in Brixham and other things about the property for instance: accommodation The surveyor will also consider certain fixtures and fittings and will draw upon other assumptions like the property isn't on a land fill site.

A Building survey does not include a valuation as standard. However we can add a valuation for a small additional fee ; call for more info. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out. The surveyor also assumes that there aren't any compromising legal problems like building regulations having been complied. Advice should be sought from your conveyancing solicitor.

Additional local area assumptions, for example problematic roads and access, are made in addition to environmental concerns like local Brixham industrial considerations, which will also be factored in.

Gas flame

Will the qualified surveyor look at the safety of the gas mains supply?

Your surveyor will locate and visually check the accessible parts of the system. This will include the meter location/position at the building, as well as gas associated installations e.g. chimney linings. The Brixham chartered surveyor won't actually remove any fittings and won't run any tests whatsoever on the functionality of the gas system. Of course, gas is potentially fatal and if there are any concerns relating to gas installations, call a gas safe engineer.

Brixham based gas engineers include Jamie Bidmead of 30 Burton Street, Brixham, Devon Tel. 07738 136721 and Armadillo Heating Services of 9, Pillar Avenue, Brixham, Devon Tel. 01803858865.

Timber damage by insect larvae

My housemate spotted signs of insects in the bathroom - Will a house surveyor look into this?

Questions regarding the infestation of a Brixham house may not be raised during the conveyancing. Regrettably, vermin can seriously reduce the value of a property and put your health in danger. It is vital that buyers consider this oft-overlooked aspect when making an offer.

Signs may not be evident for weeks or months. As an example, a moth infestation may not be found for months after purchase, and even if treated, may never be fully eradicated. Remedies can be disruptive to residents, and may require you to move out during the work in extreme cases. Your property surveyor may report on signs of infestation, especially if you have raised your concerns beforehand.
