HomeBuyer Report

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

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, although it is basically the same the same survey.

If the Lechlade property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out substantial modifications, you should you select a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap, but it does offer a more detailed analysis of the Lechlade property's state of repair and it includes advice on structural defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

Roof defects identified during a survey

The seller said that the had been a problem with cracked supports - Will access to the roof be a problem?

Questions like this are often asked of RICS surveyors by Lechlade buyers who are aware that property can often hide difficulties with the roof, for example, mould. Any part of the roof or loft, such as tie beams, ought to be checked. The are also numerous flat-roofed properties in Lechlade, including many apartment blocks. In these cases, the RICS surveyors will look for a range of signs, including badly installed felting.

The expense of thatching, or other major roof work, means that some owners put it off for as long as possible. This is a false economy, as such issues can lead to more severe general structural problems. A quote for the work could be sought from a reliable roofing specialist.

Gas flame

Will a qualified surveyor check the condition of the gas supply?

Your qualified surveyor will locate and visually inspect the accessible parts of the gas system. This will mean gas related areas such as the routing of any gas pipes at the building, in addition to gas related installations, for instance chimney breasts or flues. Any fittings will not be detached. Of course, gas is potentially unsafe, should there be any worries about gas, call a gas engineer.

Regulations require that all landlords are legally required to commission appliance and installation inspections yearly and punishments for failure to comply are severe .

Building Surveys on maisonettes

Should I spend a bit more on full structural survey prior to purchasing a doer-upper, Edwardian purpose built maisonette close to Lechlade?

The Building Survey is the new name for the Structural Survey following its renaming a couple of years ago by RICS. Opt for the Building Survey for the maisonette outlined. A HomeBuyer Report is appropriate if investigating a 60 year old or less unmodified property assembled from typical construction materials and methods. .
