HomeBuyer Report

Should I get a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a home in Coombe Warren and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, however it is essentially the same survey.

If the Coombe Warren property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any major works, RICS recommend you commission a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap, but it does offer comprehensive details of the Coombe Warren property's condition as well as advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Gas flame

Will a local surveyor go into detail on the state of repair of the gas supply?

The will locate and visually check out the easily accessible parts of the gas system. This will mean gas related areas such as the routing of any gas pipes for instance, as well as gas affiliated installations for example - chimney linings. However, the Coombe Warren RICS chartered surveyor won't remove the external fittings nor will the surveyor do any tests on the serviceability of the system. Needless to say, gas is potentially deadly and if there are any concerns about gas fittings, contact a gas safe engineer.

Damage caused by high rainfall

Is wet weather an issue in Coombe Warren? Will the RICS surveyor in Coombe Warren report on this? Also, where there [var10], what should we do?

Rainfall is a fact of life in the UK, however, damp weather and the effect it can have on a house are ignored by house purchasers. One indication that downspouts are under performing is spalling masonry. If you are worried, consider asking the surveyor for more information.

Luckily, issues with rainwater goods are generally easy to repair, if identified early. Where this is not unblocked on a regular basis, the damage becomes increasing costly to remedy.

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

We spotted that there is a 30mm crack above the windows in the sitting room when we last viewed the flat. What subsidence-related defects will my Building Survey inspect?

Subsidence is movement in a home's foundations. Fortunately, subsidence can be set right on a reasonable budget. Heave is less common, and may result from the removal of a tree or shrub and its root network no longer draws water from the subsoil.

Collapsed drains, including mains drains, can cause subsidence by washing away or loosening subsoil. This is an example of groundwater subsidence. Signs of potential subsidence include new, suddenly visible cracks in brick or render.

The root cause of any subsidence must be found before repairs can commence.This need not be expensive.Removing or even pruning any tree(s) causing subsidence may be enough to halt any further movement. Specialist geological and drain surveys may also be required as the movement of soil can sometimes crack drains or water mains.
