HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to have a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a home in Mossley and of the 3, which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same comprehensive survey.

If the Mossley property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any major works, you should you opt for a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap but it does provide you with comprehensive details of the Mossley property's state of repair as well as information on defects and maintenance options .

Gas flame

Does a RICS chartered surveyor go into detail on the state of the gas heaters?

A RICS chartered surveyor will visually inspect any accessible parts of the gas system. This will include whether the meter is in an escape route at the property, in addition to gas related fittings such as chimney linings. The external fittings or housings won't actually be undone. Of course, gas is potentially fatal and if there are any worries about gas fittings, call a gas engineer.

Greater Manchester based local firms include Stanley And Atkinson Gas Services of 62 Three Counties Road, Mossley, Ashton-Under-Lyne, Lancashire Tel. 07766542433 and John Edward Bradley of 21 George Street, Mossley, Ashton-Under-Lyne, Lancashire Tel. 01457873521.

Gas regulations obligate landlords to carry out appliance and installation inspections annually and punishments for failure to comply include heavy fines .

Other external areas of the property

For the Mossley HomeBuyer Report what are the usual Condition Rating 1 defects affecting 'E9 - Other' ?

The part of the HomeBuyer Report mentions other aspects which do not fit into the other categories. Your surveyor can provide more details if required. Stair tread widths which are dangerously short is an example of this. RICS created the HomeBuyer Report to give home purchasers a clear and easy to read report on the condition of the home they plan to buy, unlike less prescriptive surveys. These may offer more complex detail, but they are also less useful for home purchasers deciding whether or not to purchase a Mossley house. The surveyor uses a scale between 1 and 3 to show to what extent each defect requires attention. Elements of the Mossley house which the surveyor has determined to be in a good state of repair are awarded a condition rating of 1. This rating does not, however, mean that no future maintenance is required. Regular upkeep may still be appropriate or even necessary. In some cases, an element covered under Section E may be marked as NI, or 'Not inspected'. Irrespective of standardised format of the report, your surveyor will provide a bespoke report, tailored to your particular concerns.

Damage resulting from flooding

Is there a flood risk in Mossley, and will the house surveyor consider indications of flooding?

Recent conflict between insurers has the government has caused a great deal of uncertainty. If you are planning to buy in a flood-affected area, a Home Buyers Survey will inform your decision. It is easily possible to assess whether a house is susceptible to flooding via any of a number of routes.

Flood water can enter a house through a number of routes, including air bricks, poorly fitted doors and windows, and seepage through external walls.

Preventative measures can include costly but effective solutions e.g. raised door thresholds. Flooding issues will only be raised in Section J of a Home Buyers Survey if the chartered surveyor observes or has reason to suspect that the house is at risk.
