HomeBuyer Report

Should I get a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a home in Hereford and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey but is basically the same the same comprehensive survey.

If the Hereford property is a flat or maisonette, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any an extension, you should you opt for a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap, but it does give comprehensive details of the Hereford property's general condition along with more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Timber damage by insect larvae

We are concerned about bugs. Do we need a house surveyor?

Houses are generally free of pest problems, but it is inadvisable to risk buying without more information if you have suspicions. It is vital that buyers consider this oft-overlooked aspect when making an offer.

Signs may not be evident for weeks or months, damage to stored clothes or carpets is a sign of a moth infestation, but may not be spotted for months. Treatment for insect infestation may include removal or excision of affected timber. Rather than pulling out, it may be possible to agree a reduction in the purchase price to cover the cost of remedy.

Gas flame

Does a qualified surveyor report on the state of the gas installations?

Yes. The surveyor will visually look at the accessible parts of the system. The surveyor will look at the routing of any gas pipes at the building, in addition to gas related installations such as fixed external ventilation hearths. External fittings or housings will not however be taken off. Most people are aware that gas can be hazardous, if you have any concerns about gas fittings, contact a gas safe engineer.

Traditionally built property

I am purchasing a warehouse conversion. What should be budgeted for repairs?

Some buyers plan to buy property with real personality. Vernacular architecture, however, can occasionally give buyers second thoughts. Properties built using traditional methods can be expensive to maintain. It is often the case that specialist expertise is necessary. Especially for listed property, Traditional building materials may be required. This may make obtaining a full structural or building survey essential. If the house you are buying may require specialist maintenance, contact the surveyor for more detail. Built in around 1270, Cathedral Barn in Hereford is an example of a traditional Medieval-period hall.
