Conservatory

In the HomeBuyer Report what might a Condition Rating 1 mean for 'E7 - Conservatory and porches' ?

An example of this is insect damage or rot to a conservatory roof. This section covers conservatories and porches. The type and condition of these parts will also be mentioned in the report.

RICS HomeBuyer Reports are transparent, detailed surveys of residential property. A 'traffic light' system of colour coding is used to confirm the impact on the property individual defects may have. Elements of the residence which the surveyor has determined to be in a good state of repair are awarded a condition rating of 1, but this does not mean that no future work is required. Seasonal checks may still be appropriate to prevent deterioration. In some cases, an element covered under Section E may be marked as NI, or 'Not inspected'. If a home does not have a porch or conservatory, for example, these aspects of the report will be omitted.

Gas flame

Will the surveyor check out the safety of the gas appliances?

A qualified surveyor will locate and visually examine any accessible parts of the system. This will mean gas related areas such as gas (and oil heaters) as part of the survey, as well as gas connected fixtures such as prefabricated flues. Any external fittings or housings will not be dislodged. Most people are aware that gas can be fatal, should you have any worries relating to gas installations, call a gas safe engineer.
