HomeBuyer Report

Should I go for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a property in Taunton and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same.

If the Taunton property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make alterations, you should you select a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap however it does give comprehensive details of the Taunton property's condition in addition to advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

For more detailed advice you can get a Taunton House Survey Quote online or call us 0800 038 6667 to speak to a member of our team.

Gas flame

Will a chartered surveyor look into the condition or the safety of the gas flues?

A surveyor will visually examine any accessible parts of the gas system. The survey will include the meter location/position as part of the Taunton survey, as well as gas associated fittings e.g. chimney breasts. If there are any gas fittings they won't be removed. The gas system won't be tested in any way. Most people are aware that gas is potentially dangerous, should you have any concerns relating to gas installations, call a gas safe engineer.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Will my survey give a property valuation and cost of rebuild estimate (including the cost of site clearance) and how is it calculated?

A Homebuyer Report on a Taunton property will contain a surveyor valuation and a reinstatement (rebuilding) cost estimate as standard. To be able to determine an accurate value estimate your surveyor will take into account experience of property in Taunton and other things relating to the property for instance: desirability of the location.
