HomeBuyer Report

Should I get a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a house in Mansfield and which one would be cheaper?

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

If the Mansfield property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction, you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out substantial modifications on the Mansfield property, RICS advise you book a Building Survey. This option is less cheap but it does provide you with an in-depth analysis of the Mansfield property's state of repair in addition to more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

Gas flame

Does a Mansfield surveyor inspect the condition or the safety of the gas mains supply?

The chartered surveyor will visually inspect the easily accessible parts of the gas system. The survey will include the gas pipe route at the home, in addition to gas associated fittings like ventilation of flue (if blocked). External fittings or covers won't be dislodged. Most people are aware that gas is potentially dangerous, should there be any worries about gas at all, or if you suspect a gas issue, call a gas safe engineer.

The Gas Safety (Installation & Use) Regulations 1998 stipulate that all landlords must to complete appliance and installation inspections annually. Non compliance penalties are harsh .

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

A builder said subsidence is worth checking impacting the home. What subsidence issues does the Mansfield Surveyor report on?

Subsidence is movement in a house's foundations. In most situations, subsidence can be set right.

Cracks are a plain sign of subsidence, but they may be harmless. Signs of potential subsidence include doors and windows that are more difficult to open.

Identifying the cause of subsidence is the first step to its solution. It has been estimated that around 70% subsidence cases are caused by tree roots drawing moisture from the soil. Structural brickwork may need to be dismantled and rebuilt, or more cosmetic areas can effectively be repaired with resin filling in the cracks. This can also be time-consuming, and inconvenient. Chartered surveyors should be able to identify a subsidence problem, while structural engineers may also be required.
