HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to go for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a house in Chilwell and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey but is essentially the same comprehensive survey.

If the Chilwell property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make major works on the Chilwell property, RICS advise you select a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap but it does offer a more detailed analysis of the Chilwell property's general condition as well as an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

Shocking Electrics

When I viewed the house I am possibly going to lease I saw that there are doubts as to then safety of the electrical system, does a Chilwell Homebuyer Report give details on on the electrical system?

When carrying out a Chilwell Homebuyer Report the home surveyor should mention the overall electrical system if it is obvious that they are in a hazardous state.

This should include a non invasive view of open or exposed parts of the wiring, fusebox etc. and other potential areas for concern such as checking the condition of a representative sample of light fittings. Inspecting the documents from a test on the condition of the electrical connections handled by an electrician will usually form part of the Homebuyer report in Chilwell. Inspecting any evidence of any recent PIR conducted by an electrician will usually form part of the survey in Chilwell .

The IEE recommend a periodic test is carried out every 10 years (5 if letting).

Traditionally built property

I am buying an older coast house in Chilwell. What effect will the structure have on regular maintenance?

Many purchasers would like to own a house with personality, like a farmstead. A building's age, however, can concern buyers. Structures employing traditional methods can be unexpectedly hard to repair. You should bear in mind that specialist knowledge may be needed, and it could also be necessary to find Materials suitable for the work, which could result in longer-term maintenance obligations.Discuss this with your surveyor for further advice.

Conservation area

Are there any problems we would need to be conscious of if intending to buy an extended house in Chilwell near a conservation area ?

There are thousands official conservation areas in England and Wales which are overseen by the local council. Your surveyor are required by RICS to possess knowledge of local area factors and any bearing they have with the building and its value. Property values will probably be higher which is down to the areas being largely unspoilt However a growing number have fallen into a state for example - ugly satellite dishes

Surveyors can be expected to note whether the location looks like it may be classified as such and the Section I Issues for your legal advisers of your Homebuyer Report will advise further enquiries are conducted during the conveyancing process. Unapproved adjustments to the property will also be advised in your survey but these are really more a concern for the solicitor. Edwards Clegg are based in 10 Cross Street, Broxtowe, Nottinghamshire, NG9 2NX should be happy to give you some pointers. Tel: 0115 9224537
