HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to have a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a home in Egremont and of the 3, which one would be cheaper?

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

If the Egremont property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials, you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make any works or an extension, RICS advise you choose a Building Survey instead. This more detailed survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it will give you exhaustive analysis of the Egremont property's general condition in addition to advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Roof defects identified during a survey

Poor roof maintenance brings up bad memories for us - What does the surveyor in Egremont look into during the survey?

Property in and around Egremont in otherwise fine condition could feature problems like bad drainage. Any part of the roof or loft, such as roof battens, ought to be checked. The are also numerous flat-roofed properties in Egremont, including many apartment blocks. In these cases, the Egremont surveyors will look for a range of signs, including a slope of less than 12 to 15 degrees.

The expense of insulating the attic, or other major roof work, means that some owners put it off for as long as possible. This is a false

economy, as such issues can lead to more severe general structural problems. A Egremont contractor can provide an estimate.

Traditionally built property

I am buying a 17th Century gatehouse in Egremont. What consequences will the property's rafter roof have on maintenance?

Many purchasers would be interested in owning a old, characterful home one day. Vernacular, or traditional, architecture, however, can often be problematic. Property featuring traditional methods can be costly to maintain. You should bear in mind that specialist expertise may be needed. Especially for listed buildings, Construction materials, such as matching tiles, may be required.

Shocking Electrics

When I was shown a property I am intending to buy, the agent said that there could be corrosion of the wiring. Does a surveyor write anything on the electrical system?

When conducting a Home Buyers Survey in Egremont a qualified surveyor will usually make a note on the electrics if it is apparent that they are in a hazardous state. Your surveyor is expected to things like verifying the external installations e.g. Power sockets in garages or outhouses. Looking at any documentation from the most recent Periodic Inspection Report carried out by an electrician should form part of the survey. A check for the documentation from any recent PIR carried out by a suitably qualified electrician on the building will usually form part of the Homebuyer report in Egremont .

The IEE suggest that a PIR is carried out at least every 10 years (or every 5 if renting out).
