HomeBuyer Report

Should I opt for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a home in Hartlebury and which would be cheaper?

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

If the Hartlebury property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out an extension on the property, you should you carry out a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap but it will give exhaustive analysis of the Hartlebury property's condition along with more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Gas flame

Will the qualified surveyor inspect the state of repair of the gas flues?

Your RICS chartered surveyor will visually check out the easily accessible parts of the gas system. This will include gas (and oil heaters) for instance, in addition to gas related installations e.g. fixed external ventilation hearths. Should there be any external fittings they will not however be taken off. Of course, gas can be deadly and if there are any worries about gas fittings, contact a gas safe engineer.

Regulations stipulate that all landlords must to carry out appliance and installation inspections every year and punishments for failure to comply include heavy fines .

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Does a Building survey in Hartlebury include a valuation and cost of rebuild estimate (including the cost of reconstructing permanent outbuildings) and what does it include?

Hartlebury Homebuyer Reports a surveyor valuation and a Reinstatement Cost as part of the report. To work out the market value your independent surveyor will refer to knowledge of Hartlebury as well as other factors about the property for instance: number of bedrooms. The RICS surveyor will also consider certain fixtures and fittings and will make certain key assumptions such as the property is connected to mains services such as gas.

A Building survey does not include a valuation as standard. However we can add a valuation for a nominal fee by request. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out. The valuation is also on the basis that there aren't any problematic legal problems for example there being no on going disputes. Advice should be sought from your conveyancing solicitor.

Further Hartlebury assumptions, such as there being no disputes between occupiers or connection to sewers, are made in addition to local environmental issues like railways, also being considered.

Traditionally built property

My partner and I are buying an old converted cow-house. What effect will the thatched roof have on upkeep?

Many purchasers would be interested in owning a home with character, such as a period conversion. A property's age, however, can concern buyers. Structures featuring traditional methods can be difficult to maintain. You should be aware that specialist knowledge may be needed. Materials suitable for the work may also need to be sourced.
