HomeBuyer Report

Should we choose a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a home in Choppington and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey and is basically the same the same comprehensive survey.

If the Choppington property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction, you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any alterations, RICS recommend you go for a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap, however it will give you an in-depth analysis of the Choppington property's state of repair along with an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

Shocking Electrics

When we were shown the period property we are hoping to purchase, the agent said that there are doubts as to then safety of the electrical system - will a Choppington survey advise on the electrical system?

When carrying out a Home Survey in Choppington the home surveyor will usually make a note on the state of the electrics if it is apparent that they are in a hazardous state of repair.

This should include a non invasive inspection (without removing any fittings) of any revealed areas of the wiring as well as possible problems relating to things like examining the condition of fixed appliances like storage radiators or the condition residual circuit breakers (RCD) and/or miniature circuit breakers (MCBs). Inspecting any documents from a test on the condition of the electrical connections handled by an electrician will usually be part of the survey.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Does a Building survey in Choppington include a valuation and cost of rebuild estimate and how does the surveyor work it out?

The Homebuyer Report contains a valuation and a Reinstatement Cost as a standard part of the survey. When calculating the valuation your surveyor should use area knowledge and other factors about the property for instance: desirability of the location. Surveyors also evaluate style of architecture and will use key assumptions such as the property is connected to mains services such as water. Surveyors disregard certain things like furnishings e.g. carpets.

Additional local Choppington area conjectures, such as there being no disputes between occupiers or the access roads not being in private control, are made as well as any significant local environmental concerns like flood plains, also being considered.

A Building Survey won't include a valuation as standard. A valuation can, however, be added for a nominal fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.

Roof defects identified during a survey

I have put in an offer on a Choppington structure with a loft conversion. What will our chartered surveyor look for?

This often causes anxiety for buyers in Choppington. A large number of properties can be hiding serious roof maintenance problems. All parts of the roof must be considered during the survey. This can include anything from collar beams to slates. Problems can often arise in the case of flat roofs, caused by amateur repairs.

It may be inconvenient to employ scaffolding to perform repairs, especially in the busy parts of Choppington, but it is a health and safety necessity. Prior to exchange, it may be worth sourcing from a Choppington roofing specialist a quote for any suggested work.
