HomeBuyer Report

Should we get a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a property in Maldon and which one is cheaper?

If the Maldon property is a flat, or is an older property, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make alterations on the Maldon property, it would be better that you commission a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap, but it will give a thorough analysis of the Maldon property's state of repair and it includes advice on defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

Damage resulting from flooding

We think this property is located in a low lying area. Is there a major flood risk? Would our HomeBuyer Report inquire into flooding damage?

Flooding in Maldon can cause severe damage to both contents and property, and the value of a property can decrease if in an exposed area, even if it has never flooded. Your RICS surveyor may use several methods to determine if the residential property in question is in danger, and a property surveyor will advise on repairs or preventative measures. Less expensive preventative measures include door guards. Also included on Environment Agency's flood warning are details of local rivers and other bodies of water prone to flooding.

Gas flame

Will the local surveyor check out the state of the gas installations?

A surveyor will visually examine any easily accessible parts of the system. A surveyor will want to inspect the condition of the meter where relevant, in addition to gas associated fittings e.g. associated asbestos. However, the Maldon chartered surveyor won't remove external fittings and will not carry out any tests whatsoever on the appliances or system. Needless to say, gas is potentially unsafe, should there be any worries about gas, contact a gas safe engineer.
