HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to book a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a property in Silsworth and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey but is basically the same the same level of survey.

If the Silsworth property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any substantial modifications on the property, RICS recommend you go for a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap but it does give comprehensive details of the Silsworth property's condition in addition to advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

Gas flame

Does a RICS surveyor check the state of the gas heaters?

Your will visually check the easily accessible parts of the system. This will mean gas related areas such as gas heaters (also LPG/oil/electric) as part of the Silsworth survey, as well as gas affiliated appliances or installations, for instance fireplaces. The Silsworth chartered surveyor will not remove the external fittings or housings and surveyors are not qualified to do any tests whatsoever on the functionality of the gas

system. Needless to say, gas is potentially hazardous, should there be any concerns relating to gas installations, contact a gas safe engineer.

Traditionally built property

My partner and I are purchasing a converted cow-house in Silsworth. What consequences will the timber frame have on regular maintenance?

Some purchasers would be interested in owning property with real personality. Older construction methods and materials, however, can be problematic. Buildings featuring traditional or "vernacular" techniques can be unexpectedly hard to repair. It is often the case that specialist knowledge is necessary, and it could also be necessary to find Traditional building materials. If the structure you are buying may require specialist maintenance, contact the property surveyor for more detail.

Timber damage by insect larvae

We are buying in Silsworth, and think we saw signs of vermin in the shower room - Will a residential surveyor look into this?

Be aware that your solicitor's forms may not ask about this issue.

Unfortunately, the threat posed by these to property is very real, and can be very expensive to resolve. Evidence may not be easy to find. As an example, mice are able to squeeze through even small gaps and holes, and quickly spread disease through their droppings. Remedies to pest problems can include removal or excision of affected timber.
