HomeBuyer Report

Should we have a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a house in Quedgeley and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, however it is basically the same the same survey.

If the Quedgeley property is an apartment, or is a period property, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any major works on the property, RICS recommend you opt for a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap, but it will provide you with comprehensive details of the Quedgeley property's state of repair as well as including advice on defects and maintenance options .

The average house price registered in the 3rd quarter of 2012 was £174, 094 - £22, 500 less than £196, 594 and the flat/house average was £170, 662. 3, Oak View, Hardwicke, Gloucester, Stroud, Gloucestershire, GL2 4AT a detached property was purchased for £325, 000 .

Gas flame

Will the RICS surveyor advise on the state of repair of the gas supply?

Your local surveyor will visually check any easily accessible parts of the gas system. A surveyor will want to inspect the routing of any gas pipes at the property, as well as gas related fixtures for example - balanced flues. Fittings or covers will not however be detached. Needless to say, gas can be unsafe and if there are any concerns about gas, call a gas engineer.

Stone block wall damage

Will a property in Quedgeley with stone walls generate lots of maintenance costs? What defects must we watch out for?

Locally quarried stone may be more susceptible to specific issues. Problems which impact stone-built Quedgeley buildings can vary greatly, with issues like delaminated or cracked paintwork being quote common. Irregular stone walls are found throughout the county, and can require more care and attention that regular, brick-like stone walls due greater impact the weather can have on exposed mortar. In addition, lime mortar may feature in the building's construction. Stone walls require regular maintenance, such as careful removal of nearby trees and plants. Be careful not to pull these up by the roots, as they could already be intertwined with the wall's foundations, which will cause more damage.

The sheer breadth of varying stone materials can make it difficult for purchasers to correctly identify the particular stone used in the building of a home. Quarries in Quedgeley should be able to supply local stone.
