HomeBuyer Report

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

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

If the Raglan property is a flat or maisonette, or is a period property, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out any major works, it would be better that you choose a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap, but it will offer a more detailed analysis of the Raglan property's general condition along with advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Gas flame

Does a RICS surveyor advise on the safety of the gas mains supply?

Your qualified RICS surveyor will visually inspect any accessible parts of the gas system. This will include the gas pipe route as part of the survey, as well as gas connected fixtures like flue/chimney maintenance. The Raglan local surveyor will not remove the external fittings and will not conduct any tests on the system. Of course, gas is potentially unsafe, should there be any concerns about gas, call a gas engineer.

Stone block wall damage

I am intending to put an offer in on a converted barn constructed Doulting stone. What factors must we watch out for?

From Grey Dunhouse Sandstone to Brown Woodkirk Sandstone, there are many types of stone used in the construction of homes in this country, and the defects impacting a type of stone will vary according to its properties.

Regular stone walls are built with prepared or cut stone, called ashlar, and are often easier to maintain than irregular walls. Upkeep advice often given in a survey includes.

Damage caused by high rainfall

Is rain an issue in Raglan? And could it affect the property value?

Rainfall is a fact of life in the UK, however, this issue is not considered by property buyers. If you have only been to the house you are buying in dry weather, problems are unlikely to be visible. If you have doubts, consider asking the surveyor for more information.

In most cases, these defects are generally easy to resolve, if maintenance is taken seriously. However, if the drains are not maintained, the resulting damage can lower the value of the property and become increasing harder to repair. In the worst case scenario, deterioration of a building's foundations can become fatal to its structural integrity, risking collapse.
