HomeBuyer Report

Should I go for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a home in Chesham and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey but is effectively the same level of survey.

If the Chesham property is an apartment, or is a period property, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any an extension, RICS advise you choose a Building Survey instead. This more detailed survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it does give you an in-depth analysis of the Chesham property's state of repair in addition to an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

Building Surveys on houses

Is it necessary to upgrade to full structural survey before purchasing a shabby regency home in Chesham?

Full Structural Surveys are now known as the Building Surveys. A HomeBuyer Report has enough detail for a post fifties unmodified Chesham property of conventional building materials. A RICS Building Survey is definitely the suitable choice in relation to the house described. Subsequent to an exhaustive survey of the inside and outside of the main building and permanent outbuildings, a report (set out in the surveyor's individual format) is sent to you outlining any critical information in relation to the standard of

construction and repair of the house. There are one or two restrictions with any survey because a qualified RICS surveyor wont be able to open up the fabric of the of the Chesham house e.g. removing secured hatches.

Damage caused by high rainfall

How important is it that we look into gutters? We're concerned about replacement costs.

Both in Chesham, and throughout the county, rain is so common that buyers rarely think about it. Unfortunately the impact wet conditions can have on Chesham houses is overlooked by property buyers. Signs that drainage systems are damaged include rotten roofing elements. Blocked rainwater goods can result in overflowing or blocked sewage.

These issues are, generally speaking, straightforward to resolve for a reasonable cost. However, if the drains are untreated or poorly maintained, the resulting damage can lower the value of the property and become increasing harder to repair.

Gas flame

Will the RICS surveyor look at the state of the gas installations?

The local surveyor will visually check the easily accessible parts of the system. The surveyor will look at gas heaters (also LPG/oil/electric) at the home, in addition to gas affiliated fittings for example - the possibility of asbestos. Any gas fittings won't be taken off. Gas is potentially deadly, should you have any concerns about gas at all, , contact a gas safe engineer.
