HomeBuyer Report

Should I book a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a property in Crosby and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey, however it is essentially the same level of survey.

If the Crosby property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any alterations on the Crosby property, it would be better that you commission a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap but it will give an in-depth analysis of the Crosby property's state of repair as well as advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

Damage resulting from flooding

Are Crosby properties at risk, and does a residential surveyor investigate signs of flood damage?

Flooding has blighted the lives of thousands of property owners in Crosby and across the country; sensible owners and property purchasers in Crosby are right to consider precautions. It is easily possible to assess whether a house is susceptible to flooding via any of a number of routes.

Flood water can enter a Crosby home through a number of routes, including air bricks, poorly fitted doors and windows, and seepage through external walls.

Preventative measures can include costly but effective solutions e.g. raised door thresholds, the data used to compile third-party flood assessments also takes into account flood defences and historic claims.

Gas flame

Will a qualified surveyor check out the safety of the gas flues?

The RICS surveyor will visually look at any accessible parts of the gas system. This will mean gas related areas such as gas (and oil heaters) at the home, in addition to gas associated fittings e.g. balanced flues (where immediately extended from appliance/external element).. Your Crosby chartered surveyor will not remove external fittings nor will the surveyor carry out any tests whatsoever on the gas system. Needless to say, gas is potentially deadly, if you have any worries about gas, contact a gas safe engineer.

External walls

In the HomeBuyer Report, what might 'E4' refer to?

The RICS HomeBuyer Report is designed to be user-friendly, and avoid potentially unfamiliar technical language. A 'traffic light' system of colour coding is used to confirm how concerning each aspect of the report is. Not inspected' is used to indicate those subsections of Section E which do not apply to the house or flat. The HomeBuyer Report has a standard format, which the surveyor will complete according to the nuances of the particular house or flat, omitting sections as necessary. For a Crosby property, one issue is walls built with hollow bricks that have been laid improperly on their sides. The surveyor's report on the condition of the external walls will consider all visible defects. If hidden issues with the walls or foundations are suspected, a more comprehensive structural survey may be advised. Damp proofing, including the DPC, is also included here.
