HomeBuyer Report

Should we get a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a home in Ryton and which is cheaper?

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

If the Ryton property is a flat or maisonette, or is a period property, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out any alterations, RICS recommend you go for a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap but it will give comprehensive details of the Ryton property's condition as well as advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Gas flame

Does a chartered surveyor go into detail on the state of repair of the gas installations?

Yes. Your local surveyor will visually look at the accessible parts of the gas system. A surveyor will want to inspect the meter location/position for example, in addition to gas related fixtures, for instance balanced flues (where immediately extended from appliance/external element).. The gas fittings will not however be taken off. The system will not be tested at all. Gas is potentially fatal, if you have any concerns about gas, call a gas engineer.

Stone block wall damage

I am intending to put an offer in on a converted barn built Cotswold stone. Are there specific related issues to consider, and what does the survey cover?

If left in a poor state of repair, stone walls will suffer from structural issues caused by factors including erosion of pointing joints, and the defects impacting a type of stone will vary according to its properties. Irregular stone walls are not uncommon to homes in Ryton, but dressed (cut) stone may also be used in the construction of doors and windows. Maintenance tips include removal of invasive plants, such as ivy.

Conservation area

Are there any considerations we would be advised to be wary of when intending to buy a period property in Ryton in the vicinity of a conservation area?

There are nearly 10, 000 of conservation areas in England and Wales, responsibility for which lies with local authorities.

Home Buyers Surveys in Ryton are required by RICS to possess sufficient knowledge of relevant local factors and any relation may have on the building. The price of property tends to be inflated owing to them being in good order. However many of them are falling into have been neglected and are in a state of neglect for example - the addition of PVC windows and doors

Surveyors will tell you if the house is possibly within a conservation area and Section I Issues for your legal advisers of your Ryton Homebuyer Report will suggest further investigations are carried out by your legal adviser. Unauthorised adjustments that do not have Local Authority approval will also be advised, however these should be investigated by your legal adviser.
