HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to have a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a house in Ashby de la Zouch and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey, however it is basically the same the same level of survey.

If the Ashby de la Zouch property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any alterations on the property, it would be better that you commission a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap, however it will give you a thorough analysis of the Ashby de la Zouch property's state of repair in addition to advice on defects and maintenance options .

Shocking Electrics

When we were shown a property we are meaning to buy we noticed that there was some evidence of an overload of the fuses, does a Ashby de la Zouch Homebuyer Report advise the wiring and fusebox?

When conducting a Building Survey in Ashby de la Zouch the RICS surveyor should make a note on the electrics if it appears that the electrics are in a hazardous state.

This will include a non invasive check (i.e. no removal of fittings) of open or exposed areas of the wiring, fusebox etc. as well as things like the whereabouts of the meter or consumer unit or verifying the condition of a sample of the range of light fittings and switch gear. Ascertaining the whereabouts of any evidence of the most recent Periodic Inspection Report carried out by a suitably qualified electrician should usually form part of the Homebuyer report in Ashby de la Zouch.

Verifying the existence of any documentation from the most recent PIR handled by a suitably qualified electrician should usually form part of the survey.

The IEE suggest that an electrical system check is carried out every 10 years (or every 5 if letting out).

Roof defects identified during a survey

We're purchasing a structure in Ashby de la Zouch , and we are sensitive to the cost of roof repairs. Which issues relating to the roofing will be reported on when the survey is performed?

Local property with no other major issues can, to the disappointment of their would-be owners, still suffer roofing woes, like mould. All parts of the roof must be considered during the survey. This can include anything from valley gutters to sheathing. Your Ashby de la Zouch surveyors may then recommend that some faults need urgent attention.

The expense of repairing a bowing truss, 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. A builder in Ashby de la Zouch with accreditation should be able to assist with a quote.

Timber damage by insect larvae

Will vermin affect the purchase price of a building. Should we get a surveyor?

Questions regarding the infestation of a Ashby de la Zouch building may not be raised during the conveyancing. It is vital that buyers consider this oft-overlooked aspect when making an offer.

Signs may not be evident for weeks or months, woodworm can be extremely destructive, but fortunately their 'tunnels' in timber and wood furniture are usually quite easy to spot. Remedies to a serious infestation can include removal of infected furniture.RICS guidelines on the issue of pest problems are something of a 'grey-area', so specific fears should be mentioned to your Ashby de la Zouch surveyor.
