HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to select a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a property in Addlestone and which would be cheaper?

Shocking Electrics

When we viewed the home we expect to lease, it appeared that there might be an overload of the fuses/fusebox; will the surveyor advise the wiring and electrical system?

When preparing a Addlestone Home Survey the surveyor will typically mention the electrical system if it is obvious that the electrics are in a less than satisfactory state of repair. He or she will also concerns such as whether there is an off-peak /on-peak mains supply.

Confirming the existence of any documentation from the most recent Periodic Inspection Report conducted by a suitably qualified electrician will usually form part of the survey. .

Examining the evidence of a test on the condition of the electrical wiring handled by a suitably qualified electrician will be part of the survey.

Timber damage by insect larvae

We are buying in Addlestone, and think we saw signs of vermin in the shower room. Is a Full Structural Survey advisable?

Addlestone homes are generally free of pests, but it is inadvisable to risk buying without more information if you have suspicions. When purchasing a home, this matter should be borne in mind. It is vital that buyers consider this oft-overlooked aspect when making an offer.

Signs may not be evident for weeks or months, for example, small tunnels in wooded beams may indicate the presence of house longhorn beetles. Remedies to bug or other pest issues can include destruction of tainted materials.RICS guidelines on the issue of pests are something of a 'grey-area', so specific fears should be mentioned to your property surveyor.

Damage resulting from flooding

We are getting a home in Addlestone, does the house surveyor inquire into indications of water damage?

The impact of flooding, both in the region of Addlestone and nationwide, is a serious concern for homeowners, and the value of a property in Addlestone in an at-risk area may be impacted.

As with many aspects of home ownership, flood prevention is better (and cheaper) than a cure.

Flood water can enter a Addlestone house through a number of routes, including air bricks, poorly fitted doors and windows, and seepage through external walls.

Familiarity with characteristics of the local area likely to affect Addlestone house enables the surveyor to surmise flooding may be a risk, even if the property has not itself flooded before. The surveyor may ask the residents about historical floods, although the result of these enquires should be treated as a guide only.
