Looking for a Property Survey ? Which one should you opt for?

  • House suitable for a HomeBuyer Report

    Homebuyer Report in Broadstone

    The RICS Homebuyer Report should be selected when planning to buy a home made of conventional materials such as tile & brick, not dilapidated and not over 100 years in age.

  • Property suitable for a Building Survey

    Building Survey in Broadstone

    The RICS Building Survey (often referred to as a Full Structural Survey in Broadstone) is also conducted by a MRICS or FRICS chartered surveyor but is more thorough. Opt for this when buying a non standard property such as wychert buildings.

  • Surveyor carrying out a Property Valuation

    Property Valuation Report in Broadstone

    This is an impartial valuation of the property. This report is typically chosen by mortgage free purchasers or someone needing a formal valuation e.g. matrimonial dispute.

HomeBuyer Report

Should we select a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a property in Broadstone and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey and is effectively the same level of survey.

If the Broadstone property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any an extension, it would be better that you choose a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap but it will give an in-depth analysis of the Broadstone property's condition in addition to more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

Damage resulting from flooding

Does a Broadstone property surveyor investigate indications of flooding?

Heavy rain, clogged drains and overflowing streams can all result in extensive flooding damage. Both buyers and home owners in areas in danger of flooding are right to be worried. Your RICS surveyor may use several methods to determine if the Broadstone house in question is in danger, but a surveyor will also make recommendations to prepare for the worst. Details relating to signs of flooding may be reported in Section J of the HomeBuyer Report. The chartered surveyor will usually recommend that the buyers seek legal advice on any related information mentioned in the report.

Shocking Electrics

When I went to see the period property I am meaning to buy, the agent said that there was no RCD on the fuse board - does a Homebuyer Report in Broadstone write anything on any faults with the electrics?

When conducting a Home Buyers Survey in Broadstone your surveyor should usually mention the electrics if it is apparent that they are in a poor condition. This will include a non invasive (i.e. without undoing fittings) inspection and examination of open or exposed sections of the wiring or fusebox as well as possible problems relating to things like ensuring supplementary bonding is in the usual place. Verifying the location of the evidence of the most recent Periodic Inspection Report conducted by a suitably qualified electrician on the property should be part of the Homebuyer report in Broadstone. Looking at any evidence of a test on the condition of the electrical wiring handled by a suitably qualified electrician will usually be part of the survey.

The IEE recommend a Periodic Inspection Report (PIR) be conducted at least every 10 years (or every 5 if letting).

Gas flame

Does a RICS chartered surveyor give details on the serviceability of the gas heaters?

Your qualified surveyor will visually check out any accessible parts of the gas system. This will include the gas pipe route where relevant, as well as gas related fixtures like flue/chimney maintenance. Gas fittings will not however be undone. Most people are aware that gas is potentially unsafe and if there are any worries about gas fittings, call a gas safe engineer.

Gas regulations stipulate that all landlords have to conduct appliance and installation inspections annually. Non compliance penalties include heavy fines .
