HomeBuyer Report

Should we book a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a house in St Clears and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey but is basically the same the same comprehensive survey.

If the St Clears property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out substantial modifications, it would be better that you opt for a Building Survey instead. This survey is not as cheap, however it does provide you with exhaustive analysis of the St Clears property's general condition in addition to more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Timber damage by insect larvae

We are buying in St Clears, and think we saw signs of bugs in the toilet - Will a chartered surveyor look into this?

Any questions about pests affecting a St Clears house may not be asked by the lawyer. It may not be obvious that a house is suffering a severe pest problem, as evidence can be overlooked. As an example, mice are able to squeeze through even small gaps and holes, and quickly spread disease through their droppings. Remedies to insect infestation can include use of poison or removal of infected furniture. If you believe vermin, or any pest, may be present, request that your RICS surveyor pay close attention during the survey.

Gas flame

Does a surveyor inspect the condition of the gas flues?

This will include whether the mains is connected as part of the survey, in addition to gas related fixtures, for instance the possibility of asbestos. However, the St Clears chartered surveyor won't remove gas fittings and will not do any tests on the serviceability of the system. Of course, gas can be dangerous, should you have any worries relating to gas installations, contact a gas safe engineer.
