Deteriorated timber

For the Hay On Wye HomeBuyer Report, what does a an amber light rating mean for joinery and finishes?

The RICS HomeBuyer Report is designed to be user-friendly. As buyers in Hay On Wye are unlikely to be experts in local building techniques and materials themselves, the report is written with as little jargon as possible. Red, amber and green ratings give house purchasers indicate how concerning each aspect of the report is. Amber, or condition rating 2, defects will need to be repaired or replaced at some point, but they are not considered to be urgent or serious. They may also require frequent upkeep. Parts of the report which do not apply to the specific Hay On Wye residence being surveyed will be indicated with a '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.

They are visually inspected with the aid of binoculars where appropriate. Ornamental joinery such as finials or mock Tudor panelling will be covered. Missing paint or caulking on concrete sidings are an example of a Section E defect.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

I am looking for London brick repair advice - can the surveyor assist? Does render make a difference?

Brick-built Hay On Wye properties do benefit from many advantages compared to other types of construction. Unfortunately, they also be affected by various issues and defects, such as lack of a damp proof course. For instance, thermal movement, particularly on longer walls and should be taken very seriously. JG Construction should be able to provide an estimate for repair work. Contact them at 39 Southcrest Rd, Redditch, B98 7JG or 07980 349087.

Hay On Wye home purchasers may need to consider that number of styles have been used for centuries. One example is Scottish bond, featuring five courses (rows) of long-oriented bricks then one row of short faced bricks, before repeating the pattern. The apparent simplicity of brick repairs compared to plumbing or rewiring can lead to a DIY effort making a situation worse. Seek advice before undertaking such work, and do not disregard your surveyors advice.

Shocking Electrics

When I went to see the unmodernised property I am hoping to purchase, it appeared that there is an unsafe electrical system, will the surveyor go into detail on any faults with the electrics?

When carrying out a Hay On Wye Homebuyer Report a qualified surveyor will mention the overall electrical system if it is obvious that the electrics are in a less than satisfactory condition.

This should include a visual check (i.e. no removal of fittings) of exposed areas of the wiring on top of issues like verifying the nature of any electrical fittings in shower rooms or reporting on the condition of a representative sample of light fittings and switch gear.

Verifying the existence of any documents from a test on the condition of the electrical connections conducted by an electrician should be part of the survey in Hay On Wye.

The IEE strongly advise a PIR be conducted at least every 10 years (or every 5 if renting out).
