HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to select a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a house in Chertsey and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey, however it is basically the same the same survey.

If the Chertsey property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make major works, RICS advise you choose a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap, however it does offer an in-depth analysis of the Chertsey property's state of repair as well as including advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

Gas flame

Does the RICS chartered surveyor look into the safety of the gas mains supply?

The chartered surveyor will visually inspect any easily accessible parts of the system. The surveyor will look at the location of the meter as part of the survey, as well as gas affiliated fixtures, for instance associated asbestos. Any external fittings however, won't be removed. Gas can be hazardous, should there be any worries about gas, call a gas safe engineer.

The Gas Safety (Installation & Use) Regulations 1998 stipulate that all landlords are legally required to conduct appliance and installation inspections every year. Non compliance penalties are criminal .

Damage caused by high rainfall

Should we investigate gutters? Will the Chertsey property surveyor report on this? Also, if there is damage, will they be troublesome to fix?

I find it odd that this issue is usually overlooked by home buyers.

Signs that drainage are blocked include rusted iron elements, but you may wish to ask your surveyor for more detail. That is not to say that drainage problems should cause you to reconsider a purchase. They are usually a simple matter to fix. Where this is poorly maintained, the damage becomes increasing costly to remedy.

Damage resulting from flooding

Are Chertsey properties at risk, and does a home buyers survey check any flood damage?

Flooding has blighted the lives of thousands of owners in Chertsey and across the country, and it is not clear that reasonably-priced flooding insurance will be available in years to come. It is strongly recommended that prevention methods are considered, before flooding begins.

Flood water can enter a Chertsey home through several routes, including landscaping or paved areas sloping towards the property. The GroundSure Flood Report is one of several risk screening reports designed to provide an overview of whether a Chertsey home lies within an area of potential or previous flood risk. Also included on Environment Agency's flood warning are details of local rivers and other bodies of water prone to flooding.
