HomeBuyer Report

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

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

If the Allenton property is a flat, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any works or an extension, RICS recommend you book a Building Survey instead. This survey is less cheap but it will offer a thorough analysis of the Allenton property's state of repair as well as advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

Shocking Electrics

When I went to see a sixties house I am intending to purchase it appeared that there is an old fuse board - will a Allenton survey advise on the electrical system?

When preparing a Building Survey in Allenton your RICS surveyor should mention the state of the electrics if it looks like they are in a poor condition. Your surveyor is trained to provide detail on possible problems relating to things like reporting on the condition of any visible wiring a representative sample of switch gear.

Confirming the existence of any evidence of a test on the condition of the electrical connections carried out by a suitably qualified electrician will usually form part of the survey. Inspecting any documents from a test on the condition of the electrical installations carried out by a suitably qualified electrician will usually be part of the Homebuyer report in Allenton .

The IEE suggest that an electrical check should be carried out at least every 10 years (or every 5 if letting out).

Gas flame

Will a surveyor give details on the condition or the safety of the gas installations?

A RICS surveyor will locate and visually look at any accessible parts of the gas system. A surveyor will want to inspect gas (and oil heaters) for example, as well as gas affiliated appliances/installations like associated asbestos. The Allenton surveyor will not remove the gas fittings and won't run any tests on the serviceability of the system. Most people are aware that gas is potentially deadly, should you have any concerns relating to gas installations, contact a gas safe engineer.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

We want to put in an offer on a place in Allenton. Is there any Monk bond upkeep suggestions we should be aware of?? Is brick more susceptible to the weather?

Brick-constructed converted property demonstrate several benefits. However, they can also be affected by a number of issues, including crypto-florescence and sulphate expansion. For example, sulphate attack, caused by moisture interacting with sulphates in cement, and will destroy the structural integrity of the wall and may require immediate attention. Artisan should be able to assist with a maintenance quote. Contact them at 0115-956 2097 or 1 Adbolton Ave, Gedling, Nottingham, NG4 3NB.

Other aspects of a property which may feature decorative include diapering' (using contrast and varied colours of bricks to enliven a plain surface), but it is strongly advised that professional advice be sought prior to attempting repairs.
