HomeBuyer Report

Should we get a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a property in Carmel and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey and is effectively the same level of survey.

If the Carmel property is a flat or maisonette, or is a period property, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make any alterations on the Carmel property, RICS recommend you carry out a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it does offer an in-depth analysis of the Carmel property's state of repair in addition to an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

Building Surveys on houses

What are the benefits to order the full structural survey rather than a HomeBuyer Report if buying a dilapidated detached bungalow?

Although they are often referred to as Full Structural Surveys, they are now entitled Building Surveys If you are buying an unconventional Carmel property, for example a dilapidated house - Building Survey is now the correct survey to choose. It will typically give full and important advice about the homes standard of construction and repair along with any technical details, following a thorough visual inspection of the accessible areas. Out buildings should be checked out.

Shocking Electrics

When I viewed the building I intend to acquire, it appeared that there could be corrosion of the wiring. Will a surveyor go into detail on any faults with the electrics?

When performing a Homebuyer Report in Carmel a surveyor should remark on the electrical system if it is obvious that the electrics are in an unsafe state. A professional surveyor is required to concerns such as reporting on the state of fitted appliances such as electric showers or checking the state of a sample of switch gear. Ascertaining the whereabouts of any documents from the most recent PIR carried out by an electrician on the property being surveyed will be part of the survey in Carmel.

The IEE recommend that a Periodic Inspection should be carried out every ten years (5 if letting).

Conservation area

Are there any potential pitfalls I would need to check on when planning to buy a home in Carmel in conservation area ?

There are thousands of conservation areas throughout the country which are governed by the local authority. Surveyors in Carmel must have knowledge of relevant local factors and the relation may have on the building and its value. Property values is usually greater due to them resisting change.

Property surveyors will note if the planned purchase looks to be is designated and Section I of a Homebuyer Report will advise suitable questions are raised by the conveyancing solicitor. Unapproved extensions that do not have Local Authority approval may also be noted, however these should be concern for your conveyancer.
