Which Building Survey is the right choice?

  • House suitable for a HomeBuyer Report

    Homebuyer Report in Wiltshire

    A RICS Homebuyer Report is the right choice if planning to buy a home constructed from conventional materials i.e. tile and brick, not dilapidated and build after 1900.

  • Property suitable for a Building Survey

    Building Survey in Wiltshire

    The Building Survey (which used to be called a Full Structural Survey in Wiltshire) will also be carried out by a MRICS/FRICS accredited surveyor but is more exhaustive. Choose this for non standard e.g. wood frame homes.

  • Surveyor carrying out a Property Valuation

    Property Valuation Report in Wiltshire

    This is a professional valuation of the property. This is often chosen by mortgage free buyers or someone requiring a formal valuation e.g. for probate.

HomeBuyer Report

Should I go for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a house in Wiltshire and which is the cheapest?

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

If the Wiltshire property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out any works or an extension, you should you book a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap, but it does offer a more detailed analysis of the Wiltshire property's condition as well as including information on defects as well as maintenance options .

If in doubt why not get a Wiltshire House Survey Quote or call us 0800 038 6667 to speak to our survey team.

English Heritage

I am intending to purchase a home close to Barton Bridge , will this affect the property's value?

Barton Bridge is a scheduled monument considered to be of national importance. Monuments of local importance will usually increase the attractiveness of an area. Examples of other nearby sites of importance are Bohune Down Round Barrow, Bradford-On-Avon Bridge and Disc Barrow At Easton Clump.. A RICS surveyor will include many local and regional factors when carrying out the home buyers survey in Wiltshire. Refer to the English Heritage site for further information on Barton Bridge.

Gas flame

Does the RICS chartered surveyor inspect the serviceability of the gas mains supply?

The RICS surveyor will visually inspect the accessible parts of the system. The surveyor will look at the location of the meter for example, in addition to gas associated appliances/installations for example - the condition of gas piping in loft spaces. Any external fittings won't however be taken off. The gas system will not be tested at all. Of course, gas is potentially hazardous, should you have any concerns about gas fittings, call a gas safe engineer.

Gas regulations stipulate landlords are obligated to complete appliance and installation inspections yearly and punishments for failure to comply include heavy fines or imprisonment .

Roof defects identified during a survey

A neighbour mentioned that the had been issues with loose tiles, and we expect to budget something for roof maintenance. Will access to the roofing be a problem?

Properties in Wiltshire in good condition can, to the disappointment of their would-be owners, still suffer damage to the roof, including. From trusses to ceiling joists, many parts of the roof and loft must be reviewed. Difficulties can often arise in the case of flat roofs, caused by amateur repairs.

The expense of replacing rotten rafters or soffits, or other major roof work, means that some owners put it off for as long as possible. This is a false economy, as such issues can lead to more severe general structural problems. Prior to exchange, it may be worth sourcing from a roofing contractor in the local area a quote for any suggested work.
