HomeBuyer Report

Should I have a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a home in St Lukes and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, however it is essentially the same survey.

If the St Lukes property is an apartment, or is a period property, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make alterations, you should you opt for a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap but it will offer comprehensive details of the St Lukes property's general condition and it includes more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

Gas flame

Does a chartered surveyor examine the safety of the gas installations?

The chartered surveyor will visually inspect any accessible parts of the system. The survey will include whether the mains is connected for instance, in addition to gas affiliated fixtures like balanced flues. However, the St Lukes qualified surveyor will not remove any fittings nor will the surveyor run any tests of any kind on the system or appliances. Gas is potentially hazardous, should there be any worries about gas, call a gas engineer.

Traditionally built property

We are purchasing a cottage. What effect will the wooden structure have on maintenance?

For houses in St Lukes built before the 20th Century, age can concern buyers. St Lukes property constructed with traditional or "vernacular" techniques can be difficult to maintain. You should consider that specialist knowledge may be needed. Traditional building materials may also need to be sourced, particularly in the case of , for example, a Grade II listed house. This may mean expensive ongoing repairs.

Shocking Electrics

When we were shown a property we are hoping to buy we noticed that there were damaged electrical sockets - does a surveyor write anything on the electrical system?

When preparing a St Lukes Home Survey a surveyor will typically comment on the condition of the electrics if it is clear that the electrics are in an unsatisfactory state. Your surveyor will also focus on things like verifying the condition of the fixed electrical appliances, for example storage heaters or checking the condition of any visible wiring a sample of switch gear. Verifying the location of the documentation from a test on the condition of the electrical connections conducted by an electrician should be part of the survey in St Lukes.

The IEE strongly advise that a PIR be conducted every ten years (5 if letting).
