HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to choose a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a house in Marchington and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey and is effectively the same.

If the Marchington property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make any works or an extension, it would be better that you choose a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it will give exhaustive analysis of the Marchington property's state of repair and it includes an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

Timber damage by insect larvae

My husband spotted signs of insects in the loft conversion. Do we need a surveyor?

Marchington purchasers should be aware that there is no legal obligation for a seller to report on an infestation. Regrettably, vermin can be very expensive to resolve and put your health in danger. It may not be obvious that a property is suffering a severe pest problem, as evidence can be overlooked, for example, silverfish are common in damp kitchens

and bathrooms, but only appear at night, and can therefore be difficult to spot. Remedies can be disruptive to residents, and may require you to move out during the work in extreme cases. The RICS surveyor may include notes on any signs of vermin or other pests in their report. It is, however, advisable that specific worries you may have be raised ASAP.

Gas flame

Will the chartered surveyor check the condition of the gas appliances?

Your qualified RICS surveyor will locate and visually survey any easily accessible parts of the system. This will include the location of the meter at the building, in addition to gas connected gas fittings in the home, for instance flue/chimney maintenance. A Marchington RICS chartered surveyor will not remove the fittings and will not carry out any tests on the gas system. Needless to say, gas is potentially deadly, should there be any concerns about gas, call a gas safe engineer.

Stone block wall damage

We are purchasing an 1880s property with stone walls. Which major issues should we consider, and what will the survey reveal?

There is a broad range of defects and issues associated with stone-built property. Faults common to poorly maintained stone walls can include cracks. Stone quarried in the area is common to local homes, but some do also feature cut stone brought from outside the county. Repair advice often includes removal of invasive plants, such as ivy.
