The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey and is basically the same the same comprehensive survey.

If the Burnage property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

Damage resulting from flooding

We are buying a ground floor flat in Burnage, does the chartered surveyor consider indications of flood damage?

Last year was the second wettest year on record (source: Channel 4 News), and the value of a property in an at-risk area may be impacted. Your RICS surveyor may use several methods to determine if the property in question is in danger. Flood water can enter a home through a number of routes, including air bricks, poorly fitted doors and windows, and seepage through external walls.

Familiarity with characteristics of the local area likely to affect home enables the surveyor to surmise flooding may be a risk, even if the property has not itself flooded before. The Environment Agency also publish details of previous flood warnings.

Gas flame

Will a surveyor advise on the condition of the gas heaters?

Your chartered surveyor will locate and visually survey the easily accessible parts of the system. A surveyor will want to inspect whether the mains is connected for example, in addition to gas connected fittings, for instance ventilation of flue (if blocked). External fittings or housings however, won't be undone. Of course, gas is potentially unsafe and if there are any concerns about gas fittings, call a gas engineer immediately.

The Gas Safety (Installation & Use) Regulations 1998 stipulate landlords are legally required to carry out appliance and installation inspections annually. Non compliance penalties include heavy fines .

Roof defects identified during a survey

We are buying a loft-conversion in Burnage. What advice would the building surveyor give in their report?

Burnage homes that are otherwise ideal can often hide difficulties with the roof, for example, torn or punctured damp-proofing. From decking to parapet walls, every part of the roof will be taken into account. The are also numerous flat-roofed properties in Burnage, including many apartment blocks. In these cases, the property surveyors will look for a range of signs, including amateur repairs.

The expense of a complete replacement, or other major roof work, means that some owners put it off for as long as possible. This is a false economy, as such issues can lead to more severe general structural problems. Prior to exchange, it may be worth sourcing from a roofing specialist in Burnage a quote for any suggested work.
