HomeBuyer Report

Should we book a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a property in Bolsover and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey, however it is essentially the same.

If the Bolsover property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any substantial modifications, it would be better that you carry out a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap, but it does offer a thorough analysis of the Bolsover property's general condition and it includes information on defects as well as maintenance options .

If in doubt you can get a Bolsover Home Survey Quote or call us 0800 038 6667 to speak to one of our advisers.

Shocking Electrics

When we viewed a property we are hoping to buy we saw that there could be corrosion of the wiring. Will a Bolsover survey go into detail on any faults with the electrics?

When carrying out a Bolsover Homebuyer Report the surveyor will add detail on the condition of the electrics if it is apparent that the electrics are in a less than satisfactory condition.

This should include a visual look-over of the accessible sections of the wiring, fusebox etc. as well as other things, for example inspecting the nature of any electrical fittings in bathrooms or reporting on the condition of a sample of switch gear. Inspecting any documentation from a test on the condition of the electrical installations carried out by an electrician will usually form part of the Homebuyer report in Bolsover.

Stone block wall damage

I am buying a stone-walled property. Which potential issues should we consider, and what does the survey cover?

If left in a poor state of repair, stone walls will suffer from structural issues caused by factors including deteriorating mortar. Defects such as deteriorating mortar affect many stone-walled buildings in Bolsover. Bear in mind that some defects will affect regular or irregularly cut stone equally, whereas others will not, and may require a local surveyors expertise to identify. Different stone types will also decay a different rates based on environmental conditions. For example, limestone can quickly deteriorate. You can request advice on the specific steps to be taken when a problem is identified.

Common guidance may include fast replacement of any stones which have become loose. Stone walls can also be problematic for buyers interested in extending or altering their new home, as matching stone may be hard or costly to source.

Damaged Render

What sort of issues will the Property Surveyor look for on a stucco rendered house in Bolsover which I am thinking of purchasing.

Stucco is actually just a kind of render. Commonly it is applied to brick to form a smooth flat finish. The effect is highly beautiful and is/was was often applied to Georgian buildings for example. Stucco is often problematic and Bolsover Home Buyers Suveys sometimes show defects such as when movement of the wall results in cracks. Other issues could result from the supporting significant loads above such as cracking under concrete slate roofs. Re-applying problems can be difficult as renderers are becoming harder to find.
