HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to choose a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a house in Audlem and which one is the cheapest?

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

If the Audlem property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any alterations, RICS recommend you book a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap, but it will give comprehensive details of the Audlem property's general condition as well as information on defects as well as maintenance options .

Damage resulting from flooding

Will the surveyor inquire into indications of flooding damage, or whether flooding has affected neighbour's houses?

Recent conflict between insurers has the government has caused a great deal of uncertainty. Those planning to buy in affected areas should weigh up their exposure. It is strongly recommended that a home is protected, before flooding begins.

Flooding can increase the likelihood of water entering a Audlem property, such as via loose patio doors.

Preventative measures can include costly but effective solutions e.g. properly constructed drainage. The surveyor will usually recommend that the home purchasers seek legal advice on any related information mentioned in the report.

Damaged Render

What will the Surveyor be focused on, on a stucco rendered regency home in Audlem that I wish to buy.

Stucco is in fact a kind of smooth render. Typically it is applied to brick to form an attractive smooth appearance that resembles stone. It is very grand in appearance and is found on Victorian and Georgian houses. Stucco is often prone to defect and Surveyors in Audlem can report issues such as when there is movement of the underlying wall causes cracks. Other issues could result from the pressure from heavy loads such as cracking under the roof joists. Resolving problems with stucco can be surprisingly expensive as the skills are becoming more difficult to find.

Shocking Electrics

When we saw the unmodernised property we are intending to lease, it appeared that there might be an overload of the fuses/fusebox; does Homebuyer Report in Audlem report on the general state of the electrical system?

When carrying out a Audlem Home Survey your RICS surveyor will mention the overall electrical system if it looks like the electrics are in a poor state of repair. A Surveyor will also report back on potential areas for concern such as the condition residual circuit breakers or reporting on the condition of a representative sample of light fittings. Inspecting any documentation from a test on the condition of the electrical installations conducted by an electrician on the property being surveyed should be part of the survey in Audlem. A check for the documents from a test on the condition of the electrical wiring handled by an electrician will usually form part of the survey.

The Institute of Electrical Engineers advocate a Periodic Inspection Report (PIR) be conducted every 10 years (5 if letting).
