HomeBuyer Report

Should we opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a house in Frogmore and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey and is effectively the same survey.

If the Frogmore property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make an extension on the property, you should you commission a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap however it does give you comprehensive details of the Frogmore property's state of repair as well as including an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

If in doubt why not get a Frogmore Homebuyers Survey Quote on our site or call us 0800 038 6667 to speak to our survey team.

Conservation area

Will there be any considerations we should on guard for if purchasing a flat in Frogmore inside a conservation area ?

There are 9, 300 of designated conservation areas throughout the country, responsibility for which lies with the local authority.

Home Buyers Surveys in Frogmore need to have relevant knowledge of relevant local factors and the effect may have on the property and its value. Property Prices are generally inflated which is down to them resisting change.

Surveyors are trained to report if the property could be is so classified and Section I of your Homebuyer Report will recommend further investigations are carried out by the conveyancing solicitor. Unsympathetic changes that do not have Local Authority approval may also be noted, however these should be investigated by the solicitor. Photiades are based in Longmire House, St Albans, Hertfordshire, AL1 1NG should be happy to advise further. Tel: 01727 833 134

Shocking Electrics

When we viewed the house we are planning to move into, it appeared that there is evidence of an overload of the fuses - does a Frogmore survey advise on the electrical system?

When preparing a Frogmore Homebuyer Report the surveyor should usually make a note on the condition of the electrics if it is apparent that they are in a hazardous state of repair.

This should include a non invasive inspection (without removing any fittings) of exposed areas of the wiring in addition to possible problems relating to things like verifying the state of repair of the fixed electrical appliances, for example water heaters or reporting on the state of a representative sample of light fittings. Inspecting any documents from a test on the condition of the electrical wiring conducted by an electrician will usually be part of the survey in Frogmore.

The Institute of Electrical Engineers (IEE) suggest a Periodic Inspection be conducted every 10 years (5 if renting out).

Building Surveys on apartments

Should I pay a bit more money for a full structural survey when considering an apartment in Frogmore?

Building Survey is now the correct term for the Structural Survey following its new title some time ago by RICS. The HomeBuyer Report is detailed enough if buying a mid century or later unmodified Frogmore apartment built out of conventional building materials. A Building Survey is definitely the right survey to choose in relation to the apartment described. Around 3 days following a thorough survey of the accessible parts, a formal written report will be posted to the purchaser running through comprehensive and far-reaching insight about the construction materials used on the building. There are several survey no go areas exist with a property survey because a local Frogmore surveyor cannot, unless safe to do so and with consent from the owner, force or open up the fabric of the Frogmore apartment nor can he/she assess heating installations. External sports facilities (buildings not the facilities themselves) will, in addition, be surveyed.
