HomeBuyer Report

Should we book a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a property in Ashford and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey but is basically the same the same survey.

If the Ashford property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out an extension, you should you commission a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it does give you a thorough analysis of the Ashford property's condition in addition to advice on structural defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

Shocking Electrics

When we went to see the mid-century home we expect to lease, it looked like there was evidence of an overload of the fuses; will a surveyor advise on any faults with the electrics?

When performing a Ashford Building Survey the RICS surveyor will mention the condition of the electrics if it is clear that they are in a less than satisfactory state.

This will include an overview or check (i.e. no removal of fittings) of any revealed areas of the wiring or fusebox on top of concerns such as verifying any outside installations, for

example garden lighting. A check for the documentation from any recent PIR handled by an electrician on the property should usually form part of the survey. Inspecting the evidence of the most recent Periodic Inspection Report conducted by an electrician should usually form part of the Homebuyer report in Ashford .

Roof defects identified during a survey

I am going to put in an offer in on a property in Ashford. What advice would the surveyor give in their report?

This is a common concern for buyers. Many residential properties can, to the disappointment of their would-be owners, still suffer roof maintenance problems, such as missing tiles. All parts of the roof must be considered during the survey. This can include anything from valley gutters to purlins, and where the matter is serious, it should be rectified promptly.

It may be inconvenient to employ scaffolding to perform repairs, especially in the busy parts of Ashford, but it is a health and safety necessity. A quote (or several) for any necessary work should be acquired as soon as possible.

Building Surveys on houses

Is it best to get a full structural survey before acquiring a defective fifties house in Ashford?

Structural surveys was recently renamed as Building Surveys. This is the correct choice if buying an altered home e.g. an extended house. It will give comprehensive and notable information concerning the Houses standard of construction and repair as well as any technical details, shortly after a thorough visual inspection of the inside and outside of the main building. .
