HomeBuyer Report

Should I opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a home in Surrey Quays and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey but is effectively the same.

If the Surrey Quays property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials, you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any significant alterations on the property, RICS advise you select a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap however it will provide you with a thorough analysis of the Surrey Quays property's state of repair as well as information on defects and maintenance options .

Gas flame

Will the local surveyor give details on the safety of the gas mains supply?

The chartered surveyor will locate and visually survey any accessible parts of the gas system. This means things like whether the mains is connected at the building, as well as gas affiliated fixtures for example - fireplaces. Any gas fittings won't however be detached. The system will not be tested at all. Gas is potentially dangerous and if there are any concerns about gas fittings or if you smell the distinctive smell of gas, call a gas engineer.

Window frame

In a Surrey Quays HomeBuyer Report what effect can a an amber light rating have on 'E5 - Windows' ?

Where practicable, all windows are to be opened and closed, but not forced open, and vulnerable areas closely examined. The surveyor should make notes and advise the client whether it is possible to operate the window transoms/openings satisfactorily. Blocked (or missing) drain holes is an example. The RICS HomeBuyer Report is designed to be user-friendly, with a minimum of technical jargon. The report uses colour coded condition ratings to give house buyers a clear understanding of how concerning each aspect of the report is. Issues requiring some attention are labelled condition rating 2. This may not be urgent, however.
