HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to book a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a house in East Molesey and which is cheaper?

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

If the East Molesey property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make any alterations, RICS recommend you commission a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap but it does give exhaustive analysis of the East Molesey property's condition and it includes advice on defects and maintenance options .

There are over 9, 000 official conservation areas throughout England and Wales that are designated and monitored by the local authority. Surveyors in East Molesey must have relevant knowledge of local considerations and any bearing they have with the building. House prices are generally greater as a result of them being in good order. However many of them are falling into have been neglected and are in poor condition e.g. ugly satellite dishes

Surveyors are trained to tell you if the property looks like it may be within a conservation area and Section I of the East Molesey Homebuyer Report will advise additional due diligence and enquiries are conducted during the legal process. Unauthorised modifications that do not have Local Authority approval will also be reported but these are really more a investigated by your legal representative.

Damage resulting from flooding

We're planning to buy in East Molesey. Is there a flood risk, and will the residential surveyor inquire into signs of water damage, or if other houses on the street have been affected?

Flooding has blighted the lives of thousands of property owners in East Molesey and across the country, and the value of a property can decrease if in an exposed area, even if it has never flooded. 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 residential property through several routes, including incorrectly fitted window frames. The GroundSure Flood Report is one of several risk screening reports designed to provide an overview of whether a residential property lies within an area of potential or previous flood risk. The home surveyor will usually recommend that the home buyers seek legal advice on any related information mentioned in the report.

Gas flame

Does a qualified surveyor go into detail on the safety of the gas supply?

A local surveyor will visually examine the easily accessible parts of the system. The survey will include the location of the meter at the building, as well as gas associated fittings, for instance associated asbestos. A East Molesey qualified surveyor will not remove the external fittings or housings and surveyors are not qualified to do any tests on the gas system. Needless to say, gas can be dangerous, should you have any worries relating to gas installations, call a gas safe engineer.
