HomeBuyer Report

Should I choose a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a property in Buckley and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey, however it is essentially the same survey.

If the Buckley property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction, then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out any alterations, RICS recommend you select a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap but it does offer a more detailed analysis of the Buckley property's condition and it includes advice on structural defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

Shocking Electrics

When I visited a sixties house I am interested to buy, it looked like there is deterioration in the wiring and RCD unit; will a Buckley Homebuyer Report write anything on the electrical system?

When performing a Home Buyers Survey in Buckley the surveyor will report on the state of the electrics if it is suspected that the electrics are in a hazardous state.

This will include a general check (i.e. no removal of fittings) of the superficial parts of the wiring or fusebox and other things, for example verifying the nature of the electrical fittings in shower rooms or checking the state of a representative sample of light fittings. Reporting on any evidence of the most recent PIR carried out by an electrician will usually form part of the survey.

The Institute of Electrical Engineers suggest a Periodic Inspection be completed every ten years (5 if letting).

Timber damage by insect larvae

My partner spotted signs of an infestation in the hallway. What can we do?

Property in Buckley are not usually impacted by serious cases of pests, but buying without any professional advice on the issue is not recommended. When purchasing a home, this matter should be borne in mind. It is vital that buyers consider this oft-overlooked aspect when making an offer.

Signs may not be evident for weeks or months. As an example, woodworm can be extremely destructive, but fortunately their 'tunnels' in timber and wood furniture are usually quite easy to spot. Remedies can be disruptive to residents, and may require you to move out during the work in extreme cases.RICS guidelines on the issue of pests are something of a 'grey-area', so specific fears should be mentioned to your home surveyor.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

If we are purchasing in Buckley, what warnings would a surveyor in Buckley give for a 80s property built with Dutch bond brick?

Brick-built Buckley structures do benefit from many advantages over buildings using regular cut stone. Unfortunately, they also show signs of numerous defects, including DPC failure and badly applied render. One serious matter is sulphate attack, caused by moisture interacting with sulphates in cement, and will destroy the structural integrity of the wall. Taylor Simon should be able to assist with a maintenance quote. Contact them at 01709 828913 or 9-11 Old School Lane, Catcliffe, Rotherham, S60 5SP.

For buyers with an eye for detail, less used styles of brick course include sailor bond is a decorative bond featuring vertically oriented bricks with their widest faces parallel to the wall, but it is strongly advised that professional advice be sought prior to attempting repairs.
