HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to have a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a home in Debenham and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey but is essentially the same.

If the Debenham property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make substantial modifications on the property, RICS recommend you opt for a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap but it does offer an in-depth analysis of the Debenham property's condition as well as advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

House Prices

What different issues will your qualified RICS surveyor consider when calculating house prices in Debenham ?

Any number of issues which could positively or negatively affect the price of property such as the square footage or if it is near a potential development. .

The most accurate way for you to get an independent house valued is to commission a Homebuyer Report which includes a formal valuation as standard.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

What input does you give for a 60s house built with Diagonal bond walls? Is age a factor?

Brick-built Debenham buildings do benefit from many advantages over timber-built homes. Unfortunately, they also show signs of distinct issues. These issues will be mentioned in the report and suggest potential remedies.

A defect often found is thermal movement, particularly on longer walls.

To arrange a quote for repairs, contact a local specialist, e.g. McCann P J at 26 Eastcote Rd, Stockport, SK5 7NU on 0161-480 2640.

Brick-constructed property have been a feature of house construction in this country for 100s of years, leading to a great deal of variety, both in appearance and manufacture. For instance, English bond, featuring alternating rows of long and short faces of bricks. If the surveyor does raise concerns about a brick wall defect or structural issue, it may be wise to speak to a builder before completion to assess the extent and cost of the work.

Gas flame

Does a local surveyor look into the serviceability of the gas supply?

The RICS surveyor will locate and visually inspect the accessible parts of the system. The survey will include whether the meter is in an escape route for example, in addition to gas related gas installations in the house for example - flue/chimney maintenance. A Debenham chartered surveyor will not remove external fittings nor will they carry out any tests of any kind on the gas system. Gas is potentially fatal and if there are any concerns about gas fittings, contact a gas safe engineer.
