HomeBuyer Report

Should we book a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a property in Wingate and of the 3, which one is cheaper?

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

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

If you are planning to do any works or an extension on the Wingate property, RICS recommend you commission a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap, but it does give an in-depth analysis of the Wingate property's state of repair along with an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

Gas flame

Does the qualified RICS surveyor check out the safety of the gas supply?

The qualified RICS surveyor will visually inspect the accessible parts of the system. The surveyor will look at gas heaters (also LPG/oil/electric) as part of the survey, as well as gas connected fixtures e.g. fireplaces. A Wingate surveyor will not remove any external fittings and will not carry out any tests on the functionality of the gas system. Of course, gas is potentially fatal and if there are any concerns about gas fittings, call a gas safe engineer.

Shocking Electrics

When I saw the period property I am interested to acquire it appeared that there might be an overload of the fuses/fusebox - does a the Wingate surveyor advise the electrics?

When preparing a Homebuyer Report in Wingate the surveyor will typically mention the condition of the electrics if it is clear that they are in an unsatisfactory state. The RICS surveyor should also provide detail on issues like reporting on the condition of the fitted electrical appliances such as heaters. Examining the documentation from the most recent Periodic Inspection Report carried out by a suitably qualified electrician will usually form part of the survey in Wingate. Looking at any documentation from the most recent Periodic Inspection Report handled by a suitably qualified electrician should usually form part of the survey.

The IEE strongly advise an electrical check be completed every ten years (5 if letting out).

Stone block wall damage

I am intending to put an offer in on a home in Wingate partially constructed Forest of Dean stone. Are there any defects that need to be investigated?

If left in a poor state of repair, stone walls will suffer from structural issues caused by factors including penetrating damp. Problems which impact stone-built properties in Wingate can vary greatly, with issues like penetrating damp being quote common. Stone quarried in the area is common to local properties in Wingate, but some do also feature cut stone brought from outside the county. These walls will need frequent upkeep.

Ask you surveyor for details, but the report may specify clearance of nearby trees and plants. Pulling these up can cause more damage, so your surveyor may recommend a specialist perform the work.

The sheer breadth of varying stone materials can make it difficult for purchasers to correctly identify the particular stone used in the building of a home. Quarries in Wingate should be able to supply local stone.

Contact a local mine or quarry, e.g. Hart Quarry, Hart Lane, Hart Village, Hartlepool, Cleveland, TS27 3BP, which quarries Limestone, for details. Call 01429 274177 for more information.
