HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to book a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a property in Hersham and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey, although it is basically the same the same level of survey.

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

If you are thinking about whether to carry out major works, it would be better that you commission a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap but it does offer comprehensive details of the Hersham property's general condition along with more detailed advice on defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

For further advice you can get a Hersham Survey Quote on our site or call 0800 038 6667 to speak to one of our advisers.

Gas flame

Does the chartered surveyor look into the safety of the gas appliances?

A will visually inspect any accessible parts of the system. The survey will include gas (and oil heaters) at the home, in addition to gas associated appliances or installations like prefabricated flues. Any external fittings or housings however, won't be taken off. Most people are aware that gas is potentially unsafe, if you have any concerns about gas fittings, contact a gas safe engineer.

Regulations require that all landlords are obligated to commission appliance and installation inspections every 12 months and punishments for failure to comply include heavy fines or imprisonment .

Traditionally built property

What should we think about when buying a house built in around 1730 in Hersham? Will repairs costs be higher?

For houses in Hersham built before the 20th Century, age can be a cause of concern for would-be buyers. Properties employing traditional or "vernacular" techniques can be expensive to upkeep. You should bear in mind that specialist knowledge may be needed. Materials suitable for the work may also need to be sourced, particularly in the case of listed property. This may mean long-term upkeep.

Conservation area

Are there any factors I would need to be conscious of when buying a converted flat in Hersham near a conservation area?

There are nearly 10, 000 of conservation areas in the UK that are designated and monitored by the local authority. Hersham surveyors must have knowledge of local considerations and any connection may have on the building. The price of property will likely be significantly higher owing to them retaining their original character. However a large number have fallen into a poor state e.g. ugly satellite dishes

Surveyors are expected inform you whether the building is possibly in a conservation area and the Section I Issues for your legal advisers of your Homebuyer Report will recommend further enquiries are raised by the conveyancing solicitor. Unapproved adjustments to the building should be noted in the survey, however these should be investigated by your legal adviser. Morgan Russell are a local firm situated at Hillbrow House, Elmbridge, Surrey, KT10 9NW might be prepared to tell you what to look out for. Tel: 01372 461411
