HomeBuyer Report

Should I book a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a home in Barnsley and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey and is basically the same the same survey.

If the Barnsley property is a flat or maisonette, or is a period property, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out substantial modifications, you should you commission a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap however it does give exhaustive analysis of the Barnsley property's general condition as well as including advice on defects , repairs as well as maintenance options .

Gas flame

Will the surveyor give details on the safety of the gas appliances?

The chartered surveyor will locate and visually check the easily accessible parts of the gas system. This will include the routing of any gas pipes at the building, as well as gas related appliances for example - the condition of gas piping in loft spaces. The fittings however, won't be taken off. Gas can be fatal, should you have any worries relating to gas installations, call a gas engineer immediately.

Barnsley based gas engineers include M Greaves Building & Plumbing of 111, Swanee Road, Barnsley, South Yorkshire Tel. 07980111631 and Morgan Gas Services of 33, Hawthorne Street, Barnsley, South Yorkshire Tel. 07974 251480.

Gas regulations require that all landlords are legally required to commission appliance and installation inspections every 12 months. Non compliance penalties include heavy fines or imprisonment .

Shocking Electrics

When I viewed a property I am interested to purchase it looked like there are doubts as to then safety of the electrical system, will a surveyor advise the electrics?

When performing a Home Buyers Survey in Barnsley a qualified surveyor will typically make a note on the electrical system if it is obvious that the electrics are in a poor condition. This should include a general (i.e. without undoing fittings) inspection look-over of the accessible sections of the wiring or fusebox and other concerns such as ensuring supplementary bonding is in the correct place or reporting on the condition of a representative sample of light fittings and switch gear. A check for the documents from any recent PIR handled by an electrician will form part of the survey.

Verifying the existence of any documentation from a test on the condition of the electrical wiring carried out by a suitably qualified electrician on the property will form part of the survey.

The IEE (Institute of Electrical Engineers) advocate an electrical check be conducted every ten years (or every 5 if renting out).
