HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to get a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a property in Chulmleigh and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey but is effectively the same.

If the Chulmleigh property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make substantial modifications, RICS recommend you book a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap but it will offer a thorough analysis of the Chulmleigh property's general condition and it includes information on defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

Damage resulting from flooding

When purchasing in Chulmleigh, should we be concerned about a flood risk, and will the home buyers survey check any water damage?

Last year was the second wettest year on record (source: ITN); sensible owners and purchasers in Chulmleigh are right to consider precautions. The Environment Agency maintain a flood danger alert service, with regular updated risk assessments.

Flood water can enter a property through a number of routes, including air bricks, poorly fitted doors and windows, and seepage through external walls.

Familiarity with characteristics of the local area likely to affect property enables the RICS surveyor to surmise flooding may be a risk, even if the property has not itself flooded before. Oral enquiries can sometimes be made of the residents, but this information may not be accurate.

English Heritage

I am planning to buy a flat close to Burridge Camp , will this affect the property's value?

Burridge Camp is a scheduled monument considered to be of national importance. Places of local importance can certainly add to the attractiveness of an area. Other sites of interest are Heywood Castle and Millsome Castle.. Your RICS surveyor will consider many local and regional factors when conducting home buyers survey in Chulmleigh. Visit the English Heritage website for more information on Burridge Camp.

Shocking Electrics

When I viewed the home I want to acquire it looked like there is deterioration in the wiring and RCD unit; will a Chulmleigh Homebuyer Report advise the general state of the electrical system?

When performing a Chulmleigh Home Survey a surveyor will typically add detail on the state of the electrics if it is obvious that they are in a dangerous condition.

This should include a visual inspection (without removing any fittings) of any uncovered areas of the wiring on top of areas like checking the condition of fitted electrical appliances, for example heaters or checking the condition of a sample of light fittings. .

Examining the documents from a test on the condition of the electrical connections conducted by an electrician on the building should usually be part of the survey in Chulmleigh. Verifying the location of the documentation from the most recent Periodic Inspection Report carried out by a suitably qualified electrician will be part of the survey in Chulmleigh .

The IEE recommend that a check to confirm whether an electrical installation is in a satisfactory condition be conducted every ten years (5 if letting).
