HomeBuyer Report

Should we select a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a home in Kingsland and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey but is essentially the same level of survey.

If the Kingsland property is a flat, or is 100 or more years old, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any major works, you should you go for a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap, however it will give exhaustive analysis of the Kingsland property's state of repair along with more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

I am looking for brick maintenance advice - can a surveyor in Kingsland assist? Is age a factor?

Brick-constructed converted property in Kingsland demonstrate several benefits over timber-built homes, but they can also indicate numerous defects. This could be anything from thermal movement to frost damage. Defects like these ought to be referenced in the survey and suggest potential remedies. A defect requiring immediate attention is thermal or other movement. Often vertical cracks appear above the level of the DPC, running the full height of the wall, where this seasonal expansion and contraction occurs.

To arrange a quote for repairs, contact a local specialist, e.g. Brijon Construction at 21 Hampton Chase, Prenton, CH43 9HE on 0151-651 1689.

For buyers interested in less common uses of brick, consider adding other characterful elements of masonry, such as flushwork. Consider the advice of both the surveyor and a builder or other specialist if potential structural defects arise during the survey.

Gas flame

Does a qualified RICS surveyor report on the safety of the gas appliances?

A qualified RICS surveyor will locate and visually survey any easily accessible parts of the system. This will include gas heaters (also LPG/oil/electric) at the property, as well as gas related fittings e.g. the condition of gas piping in loft spaces. The Kingsland RICS surveyor won't remove fittings nor will they run any tests on the appliances or system. Most people are aware that gas is potentially deadly and if there are any worries relating to gas installations, contact a gas safe engineer.

Gas regulations require landlords must to complete appliance and installation inspections annually. Non compliance penalties are harsh .

Traditionally built property

What should we look out for when buying a building constructed in 1790 in Kingsland? Will regular maintenance costs be higher?

A building's age can worry purchasers. Kingsland houses employing traditional methods can be costly to upkeep. You should be aware that specialist knowledge may be needed. Materials suitable for the work may also need to be sourced, particularly in the case of listed buildings. This may make the final cost hard to predict. If you are uncertain, speak to your surveyor for further advice.
