HomeBuyer Report

Should we choose a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a property in Lichfield and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey, however it is essentially the same.

If the Lichfield property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out an extension, it would be better that you go for a Building Survey instead. This option is not as cheap however it will give you an in-depth analysis of the Lichfield property's state of repair as well as including advice on structural defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

For more details you can get an instant Lichfield Survey Quote or call us 0800 038 6667 to speak to our survey team.

Gas flame

Does the surveyor inspect the state of the gas mains supply?

Your surveyor will locate and visually look at any accessible parts of the system. This will mean gas related areas such as the location of the meter at the building, as well as gas connected fixtures like flue/chimney maintenance. External fittings or housings will not however be taken off. Of course, gas is potentially hazardous, should you have any concerns about gas fittings, contact a gas safe engineer.

Traditionally built property

What should we pay attention to when purchasing an old building in Lichfield? Will the property's age be an issue?

Vernacular, or traditional, architecture can be problematic, and Lichfield houses featuring traditional methods can be costly to repair. It is often the case that specialist knowledge is necessary. Materials suitable for the work may also need to be sourced. This can make the final cost hard to predict. As an example of Medieval building, 10 The Close in Lichfield was constructed in around 1466.

Damage resulting from flooding

What's the danger of flooding in Lichfield. Can a RICS surveyor consider any flooding damage?

The lives of many residents in Lichfield and across the UK have been seriously affected by flooding, and the value of a home in Lichfield in an at-risk area may be impacted. A surveyor has a number of options to assess whether a property is vulnerable. Flood water can enter a Lichfield property through a number of routes, including air bricks, poorly fitted doors and windows, and seepage through external walls. Section J of the survey report contains details, where applicable, of flooding risks found within the boundaries of the Lichfield property or on adjacent sites. The chartered surveyor may ask the current owner about historical floods, although the result of these enquires should be treated as a guide only.
