HomeBuyer Report

Should we select a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a house in Exmouth and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey, although it is effectively the same survey.

If the Exmouth property is an apartment, or is a period property, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make an extension, you should you opt for a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap however it does provide you with a more detailed analysis of the Exmouth property's state of repair and it includes more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Shocking Electrics

When we visited the building we want to acquire we noticed that there is deterioration in the wiring and RCD unit; does a surveyor report on the general state of the electrical system?

When conducting a Exmouth Home Survey a qualified surveyor should add detail on the overall electrical system if it looks like the electrics are in a hazardous condition. This should include an overview (i.e. without undoing fittings) inspection and examination of the unconcealed parts of the wiring as well as other things, for example reporting on the condition of any visible wiring a representative sample of the range of light fittings and switch gear.

Confirming the existence of any evidence of the most recent Periodic Inspection Report carried out by a suitably qualified electrician should be part of the survey in Exmouth. Inspecting any documentation from the most recent Periodic Inspection Report conducted by a suitably qualified electrician on the property should form part of the Homebuyer report in Exmouth .

Timber damage by insect larvae

A neighbour warned us about bugs affecting properties nearby. What can we do?

Questions regarding the infestation of a Exmouth property may not be raised during the conveyancing. 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, irritating cluster flies will hibernate in Autumn, but will return every year without treatment. Treatment for vermin may include destruction of tainted materials. Rather than pulling out, it may be possible to agree a reduction in the purchase price to cover the cost of remedy.

Overgrown flat roof with weeds

On a HomeBuyer Report carried out in Exmouth what are common an red light rating defects for 'E2 - Roof coverings' ?

For a Exmouth property, one issue is the loss of granules on an asphalt roof. Flat and sloping roofs are inspected by the surveyor, provided that access is possible.

RICS HomeBuyer Reports are transparent, detailed surveys of residential property, unlike less prescriptive surveys. These may offer more complex detail, but they are also less useful for buyers deciding whether or not to purchase a house. Red, amber and green ratings give buyers indicate the seriousness of any issues included in the survey. Red, or condition rating 3, defects are serious, or require immediate attention. These issues could risk the health and safety of residents.
