Which Building Survey should you select?

  • House suitable for a HomeBuyer Report

  • Property suitable for a Building Survey

    Building Survey in Eynsham

    A RICS Building Survey (once known as a Full Structural Survey in Eynsham) will also be conducted by a RICS chartered surveyor and is more thorough. Opt for this option when buying a non standard e.g. stone wall buildings.

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to choose a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a property in Eynsham and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey but is basically the same the same level of survey.

If the Eynsham property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction, you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any substantial modifications, RICS recommend you go for a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it does give an in-depth analysis of the Eynsham property's state of repair along with advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

Shocking Electrics

When I saw the home I am hoping to purchase I think we saw that there are doubts as to then safety of the electrical system, does a the surveyor go into detail on the electrical system?

When conducting a Eynsham Home Survey your RICS surveyor will comment on the condition of the electrics if it is suspected that they are in an unsafe state of repair. The RICS surveyor will also possible problems relating to things like whether there are residual circuit breakers (RCD) and/or miniature circuit breakers (MCBs) or verifying the condition of a sample of light fittings.

Verifying the existence of any evidence of any recent PIR carried out by a suitably qualified electrician should usually form part of the Homebuyer report in Eynsham.

The Institute of Electrical Engineers (IEE) advocate a Periodic Inspection is carried out every ten years (or every 5 if letting).

Gas flame

Will a qualified surveyor look into the safety of the gas flues?

The qualified RICS surveyor will visually inspect the easily accessible parts of the system. This will mean gas related areas such as the gas pipe route as part of the survey, in addition to gas connected gas installations in the house e.g. fixed external ventilation hearths. However, the Eynsham qualified surveyor won't remove the external fittings or housings and will not do any tests on the functionality of the gas system. Gas can be unsafe, should you have any worries about gas, call a gas safe engineer.

Traditionally built property

I am purchasing an old farmstead. What consequences will the house's design have on repairs?

Some buyers in Eynsham would be interested in owning a home with character. A property's age, however, can be a cause of concern for would-be buyers. Buildings built with traditional or "vernacular" techniques can be a drain to repair. It is often the case that specialist knowledge is necessary. Traditional materials may also need to be sourced, particularly in the case of Eynsham listed buildings. This may increase the importance of getting a comprehensive building survey. Speak to your property surveyor for further advice.
