HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to have a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a house in Frizington and which is cheaper?

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

If the Frizington property is a flat or maisonette, or is a period property, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any alterations, it would be better that you book a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap, but it will give you a thorough analysis of the Frizington property's condition along with information on defects as well as maintenance options .

Damage caused by high rainfall

What effect does damp weather have on a Frizington property? If there is damage, will they be costly to fix?

I find it odd that high levels of rainfall and the effect it can have on buildings in Frizington are overlooked. One indication that rainwater goods are damaged is rusted iron elements, but you may wish to ask your surveyor for more detail. Fortunately, problems with drains are usually easy to resolve, if caught early. If not maintained, the resulting damage can lower the value of the property and will get increasingly difficult to successfully resolve.

Defective door frame

On a HomeBuyer Report carried out in Frizington what might a green light rating mean for 'E6 - Outside doors' ?

For a Frizington house, one issue is deformation of the door or frame. All doors leading outside are checked if keys are present, but they cannot otherwise be forced open. Broadly speaking, the type and condition of the property's windows are included in the report. The home buyer report is intended to be easy to read and understand. As buyers in Frizington are unlikely to be experts in local building techniques and materials themselves, the report is written with as little jargon as possible. Colour coded ratings are used to communicate to what extent any problems or notable points may negatively impact the property. A rating of 'green', or 1, means that the element of the property being investigated is in good condition. This rating does not, however, mean that no future maintenance is required. Regular upkeep may still be appropriate or even necessary. In some cases, an element covered under Section E may be marked as NI, or 'Not inspected'. Irrelevant subsections of the HomeBuyer Report, like an assessment of a conservatory where the home in question does not have one, are disregarded.

Shocking Electrics

When I visited a sixties house I am interested to lease, it looked like there is old wiring. will the Frizington surveyor go into detail on the wiring and fusebox?

During a Home Buyers Survey in Frizington your surveyor will add detail on the state of the electrics if it is apparent that they are in an unsafe condition. Your surveyor should also focus on concerns such as checking the condition of fitted electrical appliances, for example heaters or checking the condition of a sample of light fittings. Verifying the location of the documentation from the most recent Periodic Inspection Report carried out by an electrician should usually form part of the survey.

The IEE recommend a Periodic Inspection need be completed at least every 10 years (5 if letting out).
