HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to choose a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a house in Ham and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey and is essentially the same level of survey.

If the Ham property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make an extension, you should you opt for a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap, however it does provide you with a more detailed analysis of the Ham property's general condition and it includes more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

Gas flame

Does the qualified RICS surveyor examine the condition of the gas flues?

The local surveyor will locate and visually check out the easily accessible parts of the system. A surveyor will want to inspect gas heaters (also LPG/oil/electric) for instance, as well as gas affiliated appliances, for instance fireplaces. The external fittings or housings won't actually be detached. Most people are aware that gas is potentially unsafe, should you have any worries about gas fittings, call a gas engineer.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

We want to put in an offer on a place in Ham. Is there any English Garden Wall bond maintenance tips we should be aware of?? What impact do Ham environmental conditions have?

Brick-walled Ham properties can suffer from a range of defects, ranging from defective mortar to DPC failure. One defect surveyors of brick property frequently address is wall tie failure. This occurs when ties supporting old cavity walls rust, leading to horizontal cracks and separation of the internal and eternal leaves of the wall. Monks Brick Work should be able to provide an estimate for repair work. Contact them at 2 Shelton Av, Sale, M33 5DZ or 07896 184656.

Ham home purchasers may need to consider that great deal of variety, both in appearance and manufacture are found in many homes built in this country. For example, common bond, which is made up of stretchers (long faced bricks) with headers (the short face of the brick) every 6 courses or rows. Consider renegotiating the price of the Ham property, based on the results of your survey. Works to remedy even some superficial brick wall defects can be both expensive and disruptive.

Conservation area

Will there be any things I would be advised to be aware of if purchasing a building in Ham inside a conservation area, particularly in respect of to property values?

There are thousands official conservation areas throughout England and Wales which are governed by local authorities.

A Building Surveyors need to have sufficient knowledge of local area factors and any relation may have on the property and its value. Property values is usually significantly higher as a result of conservation areas being largely unspoilt

RICS surveyors are expected tell you if the property is possibly is so classified and Section I of a Ham Homebuyer Report will recommend further enquiries are raised during the conveyancing process. Unconsented adjustments to the building may be commented on, however these should be concern for the solicitor.
