  • Property suitable for a Building Survey

    A RICS Building Survey (often referred to as a Full Structural Survey in Chantry) is also carried out by a MRICS or FRICS surveyor but is more comprehensive. Opt for this option for non standard e.g. timber wall buildings.

HomeBuyer Report

Should I get a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a house in Chantry and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey and is essentially the same.

If the Chantry property is a flat or maisonette, or is a period property, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make significant alterations on the property, RICS recommend you opt for a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap but it will provide you with a thorough analysis of the Chantry property's state of repair along with advice on defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

For more detailed advice you can get an instant Chantry House Survey Quote online or call us 0800 038 6667 to speak to one of our advisers.

Surveys in Chantry will consider structural issues linked to the site. Your conveyancing solicitor will carry out environmental searches of the Landmark databases as well as Ipswich Local Authority and inform you if the search uncovers a local landfill site .

Building Surveys on houses

We are investing in a defective Victorian bungalow home - do I need to upgrade to a full structural survey?

Full Structural Surveys are now dubbed Building Surveys. Select a Building Survey for the house you describe. A HomeBuyer Report is enough for a post 1950s unmodified house made out of conventional construction materials and methods. There are certain limitations exist with a Building Survey as a chartered surveyor will not be able to force or open up the structure of the property of assess the serviceability of energy sources.

Shocking Electrics

When I viewed the house I expect to buy I noticed that there is an old fuse board , does a the surveyor go into detail on electrical defects?

When conducting a Chantry Home Buyers Survey your RICS surveyor should report on the electrical system if it is apparent that the electrics are in a hazardous condition. This will include a non invasive inspection of the open areas of the wiring, fusebox etc. and other concerns such as verifying the category of the electrical fittings in shower rooms. Looking at any documents from a test on the condition of the electrical installations handled by a suitably qualified electrician will usually be part of the Homebuyer report in Chantry.
