HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to book a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a house in Midsomer Norton and which one is the cheapest?

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

If the Midsomer Norton property is an apartment, or is a period property, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make significant alterations, it would be better that you choose a Building Survey. This option is less cheap but it will give exhaustive analysis of the Midsomer Norton property's state of repair along with advice on defects and maintenance options .

Gas flame

Will a surveyor advise on the safety of the gas heaters?

A qualified surveyor will visually inspect any accessible parts of the system. This means things like gas heaters (also LPG/oil/electric) as part of the Midsomer Norton survey, as well as gas connected fittings e.g. balanced flues (where immediately extended from appliance/external element).. However, the Midsomer Norton local surveyor will not remove any fittings nor will the surveyor do any tests on the gas system. Gas can be hazardous, if you have any concerns relating to gas installations or if you suspect a gas issue, call a gas safe engineer.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Will my survey give a property valuation and reinstatement cost estimate (including costs for reconstructing a boundary wall) and what does it include?

Homebuyer Reports include an independent valuation and a reinstatement cost as part of the survey. To be able to determine an accurate estimate of the value of the building your chartered surveyor will take into account experience of property in Midsomer Norton as well as other factors about the property for instance: accommodation The surveyor will also consider construction type and make certain key assumptions e.g. it is connected to mains services. Surveyors will disregard certain things like furnishings, for example curtains.

Further area conjectures like connection to sewers, are made in addition to any environmental issues like flightpaths, which are also considered as part of the valuation.

A Building Survey won't include a valuation as standard. However we can add a valuation for a nominal fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.
