Which Property Survey should you choose?

HomeBuyer Report

Should we choose a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a house in Dronfield and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey and is effectively the same comprehensive survey.

If the Dronfield property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any substantial modifications, RICS recommend you commission a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap, however it will provide you with a more detailed analysis of the Dronfield property's general condition as well as advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

Shocking Electrics

When I saw the unmodernised property I am meaning to acquire it looked like there is an unsafe electrical system; will the surveyor advise on the electrical system condition?

When conducting a Dronfield Homebuyer Report a surveyor will typically add detail on the overall electrical system if it appears that the electrics are in a less than satisfactory state.

This will include a non invasive check of exposed sections of the wiring as well as things, for example checking the state of repair of any fixed electrical appliances, e.g. storage radiators or if there are residual circuit breakers (RCD). Verifying the location of the evidence of a test on the

condition of the electrical connections conducted by a suitably qualified electrician should usually form part of the survey in Dronfield.

Timber damage by insect larvae

We are buying in Dronfield, and think we saw signs of insects in the lounge. Should we get a surveyor?

Properties will often be free of major pests. However, if you do have specific concerns, you should seek advice. It is vital that buyers consider this oft-overlooked aspect when making an offer.

Signs may not be evident for weeks or months, for example, cockroaches hide during the day, in light-fittings, beneath cracks in floor tiles or behind appliances. You may not spot them until moving in. Remedies to bug or other pest issues can include use of poison and removal or excision of affected timber. If you require more information, contact a local firm, like Apollo Pest Control & Hygiene Services, 10 Cavendish Rise, Dronfield, Sheffield, S18 1QZ, or call them on 0124 629 0839.

Conservatory

On a HomeBuyer Report carried out in Dronfield, what might 'E7 - Conservatory and porches' refer to?

The RICS HomeBuyer Report is designed to be user-friendly, unlike less prescriptive surveys. These may offer more complex detail, but they are also less useful for house buyers in Dronfield deciding whether or not to purchase a property. The surveyor uses a scale between 1 and 3 to show to what extent each defect requires attention. Porches, conservatories and similar elements of the property's construction are included here. The type and condition of these parts should also be reported on. A conservatory floor suffering wet rot or other damage, for example, is included in Section E.
