HomeBuyer Report

Should we go for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a property in Droylsden and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same survey.

If the Droylsden property is a flat, or is an older property, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials, then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out significant alterations, it would be better that you commission a Building Survey instead. This more detailed survey is not as cheap but it does provide you with an in-depth analysis of the Droylsden property's general condition and it includes advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

Stone block wall damage

We are purchasing an 1890s Droylsden house with stone walls. What should we look in to?

If left in a poor state of repair, stone walls will suffer from structural issues caused by factors including erosion of pointing joints. The properties of a stone can affect wear as much as upkeep or construction. Irregular stone walls are not uncommon to Droylsden homes, but dressed (cut) stone may also be used around doors and window frames. You can request advice on the specific steps to be taken when a problem is identified. Common guidance may include removal of invasive plants, such as ivy.

Damage caused by high rainfall

Should we check drainage, and does our chartered surveyor mention it? And could it affect the property value?

Rainfall is a fact of life in the UK, however, the impact rain can have on buildings is not given the attention it deserves. If you have only visited the new home in good weather, problems are unlikely to be visible. This could then result in damp and mould.

Fortunately, guttering issues are generally easy to remedy, if not neglected.However, the damage caused, where not maintained, will be expense to remedy and resulting damp and mould could become a health risk.

Shocking Electrics

When I visited a sixties house I am meaning to lease, it looked like there is deterioration in the wiring and RCD unit; does the surveyor report on the electrics?

When conducting a Droylsden Home Survey a RICS surveyor will typically mention the condition of the electrics if it is suspected that they are in a hazardous condition. He or she is expected to provide detail on concerns such as confirming the state of repair of any fixed electrical appliances such as electric showers or verifying the condition of any visible wiring a representative sample of the range of light fittings and switch gear. A check for the documents from a test on the condition of the electrical wiring handled by an electrician should be part of the Homebuyer report in Droylsden.

The IEE advocate a check to confirm whether an electrical installation is in a satisfactory condition be completed at least every 10 years (or every 5 if renting out).
