HomeBuyer Report

Should we go for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a house in Mersea Island and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey but is basically the same the same comprehensive survey.

If the Mersea Island property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any significant alterations, RICS advise you carry out a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap, however it does offer a more detailed analysis of the Mersea Island property's general condition as well as advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

Gas flame

Will the local surveyor inspect the condition or the safety of the gas flues?

A chartered surveyor will visually look at any accessible parts of the gas system. This will include the meter location/position for example, as well as gas related fittings for example - fireplaces. A Mersea Island local surveyor will not remove any external fittings and surveyors are not qualified to do any tests whatsoever on the functionality of the gas system. Anything related to gas should be handled with care as it is potentially unsafe, if you have any worries about gas, call a gas safe engineer.

The Gas Safety (Installation & Use) Regulations 1998 obligate landlords to conduct appliance and installation inspections annually and punishments for failure to comply include heavy fines .

Shocking Electrics

When we visited the thirties house we expect to purchase We noticed that there are doubts as to then safety of the electrical system, does a surveyor advise on the electrical system?

When preparing a Home Survey in Mersea Island a RICS surveyor will typically mention the overall electrical system if it is clear that the electrics are in a dangerous condition. He or she is expected to report on potential areas for concern such as reporting on the condition of the fitted electrical appliances like storage heaters or whether there are residual circuit breakers. Reporting on any documents from a test on the condition of the electrical wiring conducted by a suitably qualified electrician on the building will form part of the survey in Mersea Island.

Damaged Render

What sort of issues will the Property Surveyor take into account on a roughcast rendered (stucco) home in Mersea Island.

Stucco is just a form of solid render. Typically it is applied to brick that sets to a very smooth surface. The finish is very appealing and is common on some Victorian and Georgian buildings. It is almost exactly the same as mortar to apply. Stucco is often prone to defect and Mersea Island Home Buyers Suveys sometimes report any number of problems such as when it is faced with driving rain which becomes saturated and prone to frost damage. Other potential problems could result from the difficulty in diagnosing damp underneath. Remedying Stucco problems may be surprisingly expensive as despite the craft being thousands of years old, the skills are becoming more difficult to find.
