HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to go for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a house in Fallowfield and which one would be the cheapest?

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

If the Fallowfield property is a flat, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out significant alterations, you should you choose a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap, but it does give exhaustive analysis of the Fallowfield property's general condition and it includes more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

Traditionally built property

We are purchasing in Fallowfield. What will we need to investigate when purchasing older property? What should be budgeted for repairs?

A building's age can concern buyers, and Homes constructed with traditional methods can be a chore to repair. It is often the case that specialist knowledge is necessary. Construction materials, such as locally-quarried stone, may also need to be sourced, particularly in the case of , for example, a Grade II listed

house. This may increase the importance of getting a comprehensive building survey. If you have doubts, speak to your RICS surveyor for more information.

Shocking Electrics

When I visited the mid-century home I want to buy it appeared that there is an old fuse board , will a Homebuyer Report in Fallowfield go into detail on the electrics?

When performing a Fallowfield Home Buyers Survey a RICS surveyor will remark on the electrical system if it is apparent that they are in an unsatisfactory state of repair. This will include a by sight check of open or exposed sections of the wiring or fusebox in addition to concerns such as ascertaining the category of electrical fittings in bathrooms or reporting on the condition of a sample of the range of light fittings and switch gear. Reporting on any evidence of the most recent PIR conducted by a suitably qualified electrician on the property being surveyed should be part of the survey.

Damage caused by high rainfall

Do we need to consider rainwater goods?

Despite England's reputation for wet weather rain and the effect it can have on a residence are ignored by buyers. Signs that downspouts are a cause for concern include rotten wooden gutters. If you suspect a problem, consider asking the surveyor for more information.

The good news is that problems with drains are usually easy to repair. If disregarded, however, the damage will impact both the home's value, and the residents' enjoyment of the property.
