HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to get a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a house in Bury and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey but is effectively the same survey.

If the Bury property is an apartment, or is a period property, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out significant alterations, you should you select a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap, however it will provide you with comprehensive details of the Bury property's state of repair along with information on defects and maintenance options .

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

We are buying in Bury and are looking for a home with rat-trap bond walls. What directions can a Bury surveyor offer?

Brick-constructed properties feature several advantages. However, they can also be affected by both minor and serious issues. These can include frost damage or signs of movement. For instance, thermal movement, particularly on longer walls and should be taken very seriously. A local builder should be able to assist. Call Phillips Jeff, 30 Mitchley Av, Purley, CR8 1DT on 020 8668 1565 for a quote for repair work.

Other aspects of a property which may feature decorative include ornate Della Robbia bond paving. Contact a specialist for more information if this is of interest.

Gas flame

Will the RICS chartered surveyor look into the state of repair of the gas appliances?

Your RICS chartered surveyor will visually survey any accessible parts of the gas system. This will include the condition of the meter for instance, in addition to gas related appliances or installations such as associated asbestos. Fittings or covers will not be taken off. The gas system won't be tested in any way. Gas is potentially hazardous and if there are any worries about gas fittings, call a gas safe engineer.

Damage resulting from flooding

Is there a risk of flooding in Bury, and can a Bury property surveyor check signs of flooding, or if neighbour's houses have been affected?

Heavy rain, drains blocked with sewage or soil and burst pipes can cause water damage caused by flooding, and the value of a residence in an at-risk area may be impacted.

As with many aspects of home ownership, flood prevention is better (and cheaper) than a cure, and a property surveyor will advise on repairs or preventative measures. The home survey will also include details of any evidence of historical flooding, and may comment generally about the area's propensity to flood. The RICS surveyor may ask the estate agent if the home has previously flooded. Note that the response to such enquires should not be exclusively relied upon.
