HomeBuyer Report

Should I book a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a property in Leeswood and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey, however it is essentially the same comprehensive survey.

If the Leeswood property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any substantial modifications, it would be better that you commission a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap but it does give you a thorough analysis of the Leeswood property's state of repair and it includes information on defects as well as maintenance options .

Damage caused by high rainfall

Is it recommended that we check drainage? Will the home buyers survey report on this? We're concerned about replacement costs.

I find it odd that the effect which heavy rainfall has on a house is rarely considered properly by property buyers. One indication that drainage are blocked is flaking or efflorescence on external walls. Whether buying in Leeswood or elsewhere, difficult drainage does not necessarily mean that you need to pull out. Such matters are often simple to remedy, if

not neglected, unless they are not unblocked on a regular basis. The damage will steadily get harder to remedy, so do not be tempted to ignore the signs.

Timber damage by insect larvae

Will pests affect the purchase price of a building in Leeswood - How do we investigate further?

Scare stories about property infestations are plentiful, it is tempting to treat signs of pests such as dust mites as minor annoyances. Pests quite literally come in all shapes and sizes, and can be more difficult to treat than many buyers realise. An affected property may not always be easy to identify.

For example, silverfish are common in damp kitchens and bathrooms, but only appear at night, and can therefore be difficult to spot. Treatment for pests may include professional cleaning. Your Leeswood surveyor may report on signs of infestation, especially if you have raised your concerns beforehand.

Gas flame

Will a RICS chartered surveyor inspect the condition or the safety of the gas mains supply?

A will locate and visually look at the easily accessible parts of the system. This will include whether the mains is connected where relevant, in addition to gas associated appliances such as associated asbestos. Your Leeswood surveyor won't remove fittings and he or she won't conduct any tests on the appliances or system. You should never attempt to fix gas fittings your self as it can be unsafe, should there be any worries about gas, call a gas safe engineer.
