HomeBuyer Report

Should we get a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a home in Great Sankey and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey and is effectively the same comprehensive survey.

If the Great Sankey property is a flat, or is an older property, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any alterations, RICS advise you choose a Building Survey. This option is less cheap, but it does provide you with an in-depth analysis of the Great Sankey property's condition as well as advice on structural defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

Shocking Electrics

When I was shown a sixties house I am hoping to lease, the agent said that there were damaged electrical sockets - does a Great Sankey Homebuyer Report go into detail on the wiring and electrical system?

During a Home Buyers Survey in Great Sankey your RICS surveyor will report on the state of the electrics if it is clear that they are in a less than satisfactory condition. This should include a general inspection of any uncovered parts of the wiring, fusebox etc. as well as issues like verifying the state of repair of any fitted appliances like electric showers. Looking at any documents

from a test on the condition of the electrical connections conducted by a suitably qualified electrician should form part of the survey in Great Sankey.

Verifying the existence of any documents from the most recent PIR handled by a suitably qualified electrician on the property being surveyed should usually be part of the survey.

Gas flame

Will the Great Sankey surveyor inspect the condition of the gas heaters?

Your qualified RICS surveyor will visually look at the easily accessible parts of the system. This will include gas (and oil heaters) at the building, in addition to gas related installations like chimney linings. The gas fittings however, won't be dislodged. Most people are aware that gas is potentially hazardous and if there are any worries about gas fittings, contact a gas safe engineer.

The 1998 Gas Safety Regulations require that all landlords are legally required to commission appliance and installation inspections every year. Non compliance penalties are criminal .

Traditionally built property

What do I need to bear in mind when buying older property? What impact will the house's thatched roof have on repairs?

For houses in Great Sankey built before the 20th Century, age can occasionally give buyers second thoughts. Houses built using traditional methods can be surprisingly expensive to maintain. It is often the case that specialist expertise is necessary, and it could also be necessary to find Traditional building materials, which could increase the importance of getting a comprehensive building survey.If you plan to make alterations to a period home, discuss options with your surveyor for further advice.
