HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to select a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a home in Sandown and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey, however it is essentially the same level of survey.

If the Sandown property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out any works or an extension, it would be better that you select a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it does offer an in-depth analysis of the Sandown property's general condition in addition to more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

If in doubt why not get a Sandown Home Survey Quote or call us 0800 038 6667 to speak to one of our advisers.

Gas flame

Will the Sandown surveyor look into the state of the gas mains supply?

A surveyor will locate and visually examine any easily accessible parts of the system. A surveyor will want to inspect the mains gas installation as part of the survey, as well as gas related installations like the possibility of asbestos. However, the Sandown qualified surveyor will not remove fittings and won't run any tests on the functionality of the gas system. Gas can be deadly, should there be any concerns relating to gas installations, contact a gas safe engineer.

The 1998 Gas Safety Regulations ensure that landlords have to conduct appliance and installation inspections every year. Non compliance penalties include heavy fines .
