HomeBuyer Report

Should I book a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a house in Catshill and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, although it is basically the same the same survey.

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

If you intend to do any substantial modifications, RICS advise you book a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap but it will give you exhaustive analysis of the Catshill property's condition in addition to information on defects , repairs and maintenance options .

For more information you can get a Catshill House Survey Quote on our site or call 0800 038 6667 to speak to our survey team.

Shocking Electrics

When I went to see the house I am hoping to acquire, it appeared that there is an unsafe electrical system, will a Catshill Homebuyer Report give details on on electrical system condition?

During a Catshill Building Survey a surveyor should add detail on the overall electrical system if it looks like the electrics are in a poor state. This should include an overview inspection of the accessible sections of the wiring, fusebox etc. in addition to things like where to find the consumer unit.

Verifying the existence of any evidence of any recent PIR conducted by a suitably qualified electrician on the building should usually form part of the Homebuyer report in Catshill.

Examining the documents from a test on the condition of the electrical connections handled by a suitably qualified electrician will usually form part of the survey.

The IEE (Institute of Electrical Engineers) recommend that an electrical system check is carried out at least every 10 years (or every 5 if letting out).

Damage caused by high rainfall

What effect can heavy rain have on a Catshill house? Can damaged downspouts decrease our property's value?

Both in Catshill, and throughout the county, rain is so common that buyers rarely think about it. Unfortunately heavy rain and the effect it can have on your home are not considered. Signs that gutters are under performing include mildew in the attic. Poor drainage can lead to fungi or mould which can be a health risk.

Fortunately, guttering issues are usually easy to remedy. If not maintained, the resulting damage can lower the value of the property and will get increasingly difficult to successfully resolve.

Traditionally built property

My partner and I are buying a renovated farmhouse in Catshill. What effect will the wooden structure have on repairs?

Many buyers hope to own a house with personality, like a barn conversion. For traditionally-built Catshill property, age, however, can often be problematic. Homes built with traditional methods can be challenging to repair. It is often the case that expert knowledge is necessary, and it could also be necessary to find Materials suitable for the work, which could mean that it is all the more vital that you get a building survey prior to exchanging.If you have doubts, speak to your surveyor for further advice.
