HomeBuyer Report

Should we go for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a home in Redfield and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey and is effectively the same.

If the Redfield property is a flat or maisonette, or is a period property, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any alterations, RICS advise you commission a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap, but it does offer a thorough analysis of the Redfield property's condition as well as an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

Conservation area

Will there be any potential pitfalls we need to be aware of when intending to buy a converted flat in Redfield near a conservation area ?

There are many thousands official conservation areas in the UK which are overseen by the local council.

Home Buyers Surveys in Redfield must have relevant knowledge of local considerations and the effect they have with the building. House prices is, more often than not, more than prices outside the area owing to the areas retaining original features. However many of them are falling into are falling into poor condition e.g. ugly satellite dishes

Surveyors are expected tell you if the home is/might be so designated and Section I Issues for your legal advisers of the Homebuyer

Report will advise additional enquiries are carried out by your legal representation. Unconsented adjustments to the building should be commented on but these are really more a concern for your lawyer.

Gas flame

Does a surveyor examine the condition or the safety of the gas mains supply?

The RICS surveyor will locate and visually look at any easily accessible parts of the system. The surveyor will look at the meter location/position as part of the Redfield survey, as well as gas affiliated gas installations in the house like chimney linings. The Redfield qualified RICS surveyor won't remove external fittings or housings nor will the surveyor conduct any tests of any kind on the system. Most people are aware that gas is potentially dangerous, should there be any concerns about gas fittings, call an engineer.

Stone block wall damage

We are purchasing an 1880s house with stone walls. What should we be particularly aware of? Does the surveyor give advice on this?

Buyers of a stone-built listed building should consider that they may need to ensure any future repairs are 'sympathetic', and enforced by the local council. Faults common to poorly maintained stone walls can include erosion of pointing joints. Stone quarried in the area is common to local buildings, but some do also feature cut stone brought from outside the county. Stone walls require regular maintenance, such as clearing of ivy-like plant life and weeds.

Purchasers renovating buildings should be aware that the British Geological Survey's GeoReport includes a stone matching service. To source stone quarried in Redfield, you can contact local suppliers.
