HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to have a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a house in Sandhurst and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same level of survey.

If the Sandhurst property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make any works or an extension on the property, it would be better that you go for a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap however it will give you an in-depth analysis of the Sandhurst property's general condition as well as more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

Damage resulting from flooding

Would our RICS surveyor investigate flood damage, or if other houses on the street have been affected?

Heavy rain, burst riverbanks and clogged drainage can cause water damage caused by flooding, and it is not clear that reasonably-priced flooding insurance will be available in years to come. A surveyor has a number of options to assess whether a property is vulnerable. In addition, the survey report may recommend maintenance.Section J of the survey report contains details, where applicable, of flooding risks found within the boundaries

of the house or on adjacent sites. Oral enquiries can sometimes be made of the estate agent, but this information may not be accurate.

Damage caused by high rainfall

Do we need to investigate drainage, and does our building survey mention it? Where there are issues, what should we do?

Climate change is regularly in the news. However heavy rain and the effect it can have on a home are usually overlooked by purchasers. As an example, rotten wooden gutters will likely suggest that the drainage systems are at risk. If you have doubts, consider asking the surveyor for more information.

Fortunately, this is quite easy to resolve for a reasonable cost.

Gas flame

Does the qualified surveyor inspect the safety of the gas heaters?

Your surveyor will visually check out any accessible parts of the gas system. This will include gas heaters as part of the Sandhurst survey, as well as gas affiliated fixtures like fireplaces. Fittings or covers won't actually be taken off. Most people are aware that gas is potentially hazardous, should you have any concerns about gas fittings, call a gas safe engineer.
