HomeBuyer Report

Should we choose a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a house in Ealing and which is cheaper?

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

If the Ealing property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out alterations, you should you select a Building Survey instead. This option is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it will offer exhaustive analysis of the Ealing property's general condition in addition to information on defects and maintenance options .

Surveyors will inform you if the home could be classified as such and Section I Issues for your legal advisers of a Homebuyer Report will recommend additional enquiries are conducted by your legal representation.

Your RICS surveyor will visually look at any accessible parts of the system. The survey will include whether the meter is in an escape route for example, as well as gas connected fixtures, for instance ventilation of flue (if blocked). The fittings won't be undone. The system will not be tested. Most people are aware that gas can be hazardous, should there be any concerns relating to gas installations, call a gas safe engineer.

Gas regulations stipulate landlords are legally required to conduct appliance and installation inspections yearly. Non compliance penalties include heavy fines or imprisonment .

Substandard guttering

For the Ealing HomeBuyer Report, what effect will a green light rating have on rainwater pipes and gutters?

For a Ealing house, one issue is loose or damaged gutters. They are visually inspected. E3 does not cover internal parts of the water system, such as suspected issues relating to a combined heating and water system.
