HomeBuyer Report

Should we go for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a property in Ellesmere and of the 3, which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey but is basically the same the same survey.

If the Ellesmere property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any an extension, it would be better that you choose a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap, but it does give exhaustive analysis of the Ellesmere property's state of repair and it includes advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

Shocking Electrics

When we saw the home we are intending to lease, it appeared that there is an unsafe electrical system, does a Homebuyer Report in Ellesmere go into detail on the wiring and fusebox?

When preparing a Home Survey in Ellesmere a surveyor will report on the electrics if it is apparent that the electrics are in a less than satisfactory state of repair. He or she is trained to issues like verifying the state of repair of any fitted appliances like electric showers or checking the state of a representative sample of light fittings. Reporting on any documents from the most recent Periodic Inspection Report carried out by an electrician on the building will form part of the Homebuyer report in Ellesmere.

The IEE (Institute of Electrical Engineers) advise that a Periodic Inspection Report (PIR) is carried out at least every 10 years (or every 5 if letting).

Timber damage by insect larvae

My wife spotted signs of vermin in the kitchen. Is a Full Structural Survey advisable?

Homes in Ellesmere are generally free of vermin, but it is inadvisable to risk buying without more information if you have suspicions. Pests quite literally come in all shapes and sizes, and can be more difficult to treat than many buyers realise. It may not be obvious that a property is suffering a severe pest problem, as evidence can be overlooked. As an example, woodworm, or larvae of the common furniture beetle, may be identified after finding neat small holes in wood, accompanied by piles of wood dust beneath. Treatment for insect infestation may include insecticides or removal or excision of affected timber.

Stone block wall damage

I am intending to put an offer in on a house partially constructed Doulting stone. What issues must we watch out for, and will the surveyor offer any advice?

The cost of upkeep for stone-built properties can be higher than for more standard. The problems which can plague poorly maintained stone vary considerably. Bear in mind that some defects will affect regular or irregularly cut stone equally, whereas others will not, and may require a local surveyors expertise to identify.

Regular courses of ashlar (cut stone) are often used as a finish to irregular stone walls. A survey will include a range of suggestions or requirements for maintenance, such as monitoring of natural wear, watching for signs of sudden or severe change.

Purchasers renovating properties should be aware that a stone matching service is operated by the British Geological Survey, as part of the Building Stone Assessment GeoReport. To source stone quarried in Ellesmere, you can contact local suppliers.
