Which Property Survey should you select?

  • House suitable for a HomeBuyer Report

    Homebuyer Report in Kingsbury

    The RICS Homebuyer Report is the right choice when you are purchasing a property built from conventional building materials i.e. tile and brick, in reasonable repair and not over 100 years in age.

  • Property suitable for a Building Survey

    Building Survey in Kingsbury

    A RICS Building Survey (previously called a Full Structural Survey in Kingsbury) is also conducted by a MRICS or FRICS surveyor but is more comprehensive. Choose this when buying a non standard , for example wood frame or older properties.

  • Surveyor carrying out a Property Valuation

    Property Valuation Report in Kingsbury

    This is a professional surveyor valuation of the property. This report is often chosen by cash buyers or someone requiring a formal valuation e.g. for probate.

HomeBuyer Report

Should we get a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a house in Kingsbury and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey and is effectively the same comprehensive survey.

If the Kingsbury property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials, then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out any alterations, you should you select a Building Survey. This option is less cheap however it will provide you with exhaustive analysis of the Kingsbury property's general condition along with information on defects as well as maintenance options .

Damage resulting from flooding

Does a home surveyor look for possible flood damage?

Burst dams, poor drainage and tidal activity can all result in extensive flood damage, and owning a residential property in or near a high-risk area can mean higher insurance premiums.

Your RICS surveyor may use several methods to determine if the residential property in question is in danger.

Flooding can increase the likelihood of water entering a residential property, such as via seepage through external walls. An awareness of characteristics of the Kingsbury area likely to affect the residential property also enables the residential surveyor to advise flooding may be a risk, the data used to compile third-party flood assessments also takes into account flood defences and historic claims.

The Environment Agency have updated the status for the Rivers Parrett and Isle and tributaries, near Kingsbury, to 'No warnings'.

Gas flame

Will the local surveyor report on the state of the gas supply?

The chartered surveyor will locate and visually inspect the accessible parts of the system. This will include the routing of any gas pipes as part of the survey, as well as gas related gas fittings in the home for example - the condition of gas piping in loft spaces. However, the Kingsbury qualified RICS surveyor won't actually remove any external fittings and surveyors are not qualified to do any tests whatsoever on the functionality of the gas system. Gas is potentially fatal, if you have any concerns about gas fittings, call a gas engineer.

The 1998 Gas Safety Regulations require that all landlords must to commission appliance and installation inspections every 12 months. Non compliance penalties include heavy fines .

Damaged Render

What problems will the Surveyor be looking for on a smooth stucco coated Victorian house in Kingsbury that I intend to purchase.

Stucco is actually just a specific type of solid render. Normally stucco render is layered over brick hardens to form a smooth stone like appearance. The coating is very appealing and is found on Victorian and Regency houses. Stucco is often problematic and Surveyors sometimes discover issues such as horizontal visible cracking that describes the mortar lines between the brick. Other potential problems can possibly result be when water under windows which results in the render detaching. Fixing problems may be dear as the skills are getting harder to find.
