HomeBuyer Report

Should I book a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a home in Rowen and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same.

If the Rowen property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make substantial modifications on the property, you should you carry out a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it does give comprehensive details of the Rowen property's state of repair as well as more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

Gas flame

Does a surveyor look at the state of the gas installations?

The chartered surveyor will visually inspect the easily accessible parts of the gas system. The surveyor will look at the meter location/position as part of the survey, in addition to gas affiliated installations such as ventilation of flue (if blocked). Your Rowen qualified RICS surveyor won't actually remove the external fittings or housings nor will they conduct any tests whatsoever on the serviceability of the system. Gas is potentially dangerous and if there are any worries relating to gas installations, call a gas engineer.

The 1998 Gas Safety Regulations require that all landlords are legally required to commission appliance and installation inspections every 12 months. Non compliance penalties are severe .

Building Surveys on houses

Are there any reasons to get a full structural survey instead of a HomeBuyer Report if purchasing a defective cottage?

Although recurrently (incorrectly) called Structural Surveys buy agents and buyers alike they have actually been reclassified by RICS as Building Surveys If purchasing a modified Rowen home, for example a property in poor condition house - it is now the correct property survey. A Building Survey will give in depth and far-reaching information about the property's construction materials and any important technical details, shortly after a thorough visual inspection of the inside and outside of the main building.

. Outside buildings will also be inspected as part of the process.

Timber damage by insect larvae

We are buying in Rowen, and think we saw signs of vermin in the bedrooms - What should we do?

Be aware that your solicitor's forms may not ask about this issue. Unfortunately, the impact to a house and its inhabitants can affect the health of residents and affect its value. Signs may not be obvious. For example, skin irritation or spots of blood on bedsheets may indicate the presence of bed bugs. Treatment for bug or other pest issues may include use of poison and removal of infected furniture. The Rowen surveyor may include notes on any signs of vermin or other pests in their report. It is, however, advisable that specific worries you may have be raised ASAP.
