HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to choose a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a home in Burton Joyce and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey and is essentially the same level of survey.

If the Burton Joyce property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out an extension, it would be better that you carry out a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap, but it will provide you with comprehensive details of the Burton Joyce property's condition in addition to advice on defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

Shocking Electrics

When we viewed the unmodernised property we expect to acquire we noticed that there is an unsafe electrical system, does a Burton Joyce Homebuyer Report give details on on the electrics?

When conducting a Burton Joyce Building Survey the home surveyor will typically report on the state of the electrics if it is apparent that the electrics are in a poor condition. This should include a by sight check of any revealed parts of the wiring or fusebox on top of areas e.g. ascertaining the condition of fitted appliances, for example water heaters or checking the condition of a representative sample of the range of light fittings and switch gear.

Confirming the existence of any documents from the most recent Periodic Inspection Report handled by an electrician should usually form part of the survey.

The IEE (Institute of Electrical Engineers) strongly advise a check to confirm whether an electrical installation is in a satisfactory condition need be completed at least every 10 years (5 if letting out).

Asbestos roof tiles

There may be a danger of asbestos boilers concealed in the home. What is asbestos?

Asbestos is a noxious fibrous material. Some types were commonly found in the building materials such as duct connectors. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has characteristic heat resistance qualities and it may be found in pipe lagging insulation.

All forms including white ( Chrysotile) are ultimately deadly and may lead to lung cancer or fibrosis following prolonged exposure.

Should you find asbestos, you should be careful on no account to move it and professional advice must be taken immediately. Surveyors cannot verify the presence of asbestos on a Burton Joyce home survey. Your Burton Joyce surveyor should note possible asbestos during the survey and will suggest experts are consulted.

Gas flame

Does the qualified RICS surveyor inspect the condition of the gas heaters?

Your qualified RICS surveyor will visually examine any easily accessible parts of the gas system. The survey will include the gas pipe route as part of the survey, as well as gas connected installations for example - fireplaces. The fittings won't however be removed. Gas is potentially unsafe, should you have any concerns relating to gas installations, call a gas safe engineer without delay.
