HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to book a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a house in Chapeltown and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey but is basically the same the same level of survey.

If the Chapeltown property is an apartment, or is a period property, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any major works, RICS recommend you opt for a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap but it does give an in-depth analysis of the Chapeltown property's state of repair in addition to more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Gas flame

Will a local surveyor report on the safety of the gas mains supply?

The local surveyor will locate and visually check any easily accessible parts of the system. This means things like gas heaters (also LPG/oil/electric) as part of the survey, in addition to gas related fittings such as chimney breasts or flues. However, the Chapeltown RICS chartered surveyor won't actually remove fittings and will not carry out any tests of any kind on the functionality

of the gas system. Needless to say, gas is potentially fatal, if you have any concerns relating to gas installations, call a gas engineer.

Building Surveys on maisonettes

Is it the right choice to get a full structural survey prior to purchasing a shabby, eighties garden maisonette close to Chapeltown?

Structural surveys have a new title and are now named Building Surveys. Commission the RICS Building Survey if you are contemplating the maisonette outlined. The HomeBuyer Report is sufficient if buying a post 1950s unmodified maisonette assembled from conventional building materials i.e. brick and tile. There are some limitations exist with any survey as your local Chapeltown surveyor will not be able to open up the fabric of the maisonette nor can he/she assess the serviceability of energy sources.
