Do you need a Home Buyers Survey? Which one is the right choice?

  • House suitable for a HomeBuyer Report

    Homebuyer Report in Gainsborough

    A Homebuyer Report is the best choice when buying a home constructed from conventional building materials such as tile & brick, not dilapidated and less than 100 years old.

  • Property suitable for a Building Survey

    Building Survey in Gainsborough

    The Building Survey (which used to be called a Full Structural Survey in Gainsborough) is also carried out by a MRICS/FRICS accredited surveyor but is more thorough. Choose this option when buying a non standard e.g. stone wall or older houses.

  • Surveyor carrying out a Property Valuation

    Property Valuation Report in Gainsborough

    This is an independent valuation of the property. It is usually chosen by mortgage free purchasers or anyone needing a formal valuation e.g. a dispute.

HomeBuyer Report

Should we choose a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a home in Gainsborough and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same survey.

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

If you are planning to do any an extension, RICS advise you select a Building Survey. This option is less cheap, but it does give you an in-depth analysis of the Gainsborough property's condition as well as advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

Gas flame

Will a qualified RICS surveyor inspect the safety of the gas supply?

A RICS surveyor will visually survey the accessible parts of the system. The surveyor will look at the meter location/position as part of the survey, in addition to gas related installations such as the condition of gas piping in loft spaces. Any fittings won't be detached. Most people are aware that gas is potentially unsafe, if you have any worries about gas, contact a gas safe engineer.

Damage resulting from flooding

We are planning to buy a house in Gainsborough, does the house surveyor investigate water damage?

Overflowing rivers, rain and insufficient drainage can all result in extensive water damage caused by flooding, and owning a house in or near a high-risk area can mean higher insurance premiums. A flood danger alert service, with regular updates, is operated by the Environment Agency, and a property surveyor will advise on repairs or preventative measures.

Familiarity with characteristics of the local area likely to affect house enables the residential surveyor to surmise flooding may be a risk, even if the property has not itself flooded before. Flooding issues will only be raised in Section J of a Home Buyers Survey if the residential surveyor observes or has reason to suspect that the house is at risk.
