Looking for a Home Buyers Survey? Which survey is the right choice?

    Homebuyer Report in Bloomsbury

  • Property suitable for a Building Survey

    Building Survey in Bloomsbury

    A Building Survey (which used to be called a Full Structural Survey in Bloomsbury) is also carried out by a MRICS or FRICS qualified surveyor and is more exhaustive. Select this for non standard , for example thatched roof or older houses.

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to select a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a home in Bloomsbury and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey and is effectively the same level of survey.

If the Bloomsbury property is a flat or maisonette, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any major works, RICS advise you opt for a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it will provide you with comprehensive details of the Bloomsbury property's state of repair as well as including advice on defects and maintenance options .

Stone block wall damage

Do stone-walled homes create upkeep problems for buyers? What related issues should we be aware of?

Britain's geology has encouraged the use of many varieties of stone, from Brown Woodkirk Sandstone to Farmington Stone. Issues which impact the lifespan of stone-built elements are as diverse as the stone varieties themselves.

Stone walls are either regular (cut) or irregular in structure, each of which will provoke particular concerns. Guidelines for better stone wall upkeep include clearance of nearby trees and plants. Pulling these up can cause more damage, so your surveyor may recommend a specialist perform the work.

Damage caused by high rainfall

How will we know what effect will rain have on our new house? We're concerned about replacement costs.

Regular rainfall is common in Bloomsbury and across the country, but heavy rain and the effect it can have on a property are not given more thought. One indication that gutters are blocked is "gushing" gutters. Blocked rainwater goods can result in staining of wallpaper and damp.

Whether buying in Bloomsbury or elsewhere, difficult gutters does not necessarily mean that you need to pull out. Such matters are often simple to fix if dealt with quickly. If not cared for, however, the damage can be very costly and time-consuming to remedy.

Shocking Electrics

When I viewed a sixties house I am meaning to acquire it appeared that there were damaged electrical sockets, does a the Bloomsbury surveyor report on the electrical system?

When carrying out a Bloomsbury Home Buyers Survey the surveyor should usually make a note on the electrical system if it appears that they are in a less than satisfactory condition. This should include an overview of the unconcealed parts of the wiring as well as areas e.g. verifying the nature of any electrical fittings in shower rooms or checking the condition of a sample of switch gear. Examining the documentation from the most recent Periodic Inspection Report carried out by a suitably qualified electrician will form part of the survey in Bloomsbury.

The IEE suggest a Periodic Inspection Report (PIR) need be completed every ten years (or every 5 if letting out).
