HomeBuyer Report

Should I opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a home in Holywell and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same survey.

If the Holywell property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any significant alterations, RICS advise you carry out a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap however it will offer comprehensive details of the Holywell property's state of repair in addition to advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

If in doubt why not obtain a Holywell Home Survey Quote via our website or call 0800 038 6667 to speak to our survey team.

Shocking Electrics

When we visited a sixties house we intend to move into We noticed that there might be an overload of the fuses/fusebox, does a the surveyor advise electrical defects?

When preparing a Home Survey in Holywell the surveyor will typically mention the overall electrical system if it is suspected that they are in an unsafe state of repair. A Surveyor should also give detail on concerns such as reporting on the condition of the fitted electrical appliances such as heaters or reporting on the condition of a sample of switch gear. Verifying the location of the evidence of the most recent PIR conducted by an electrician should form part of the survey.

The IEE advocate that an electrical check be completed every 10 years (or every 5 if letting out).

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Does a survey include a valuation and an estimate of rebuild costs for insurance purposes (including additional costs such as rebuilding a boundary wall) and how is it worked out

A Homebuyer Report in Holywell will include a valuation and a cost of reinstatement as an integral part of the report. When calculating the market value your independent surveyor will take into account experience of property in Holywell and other factors relating to the property for instance: state of repair Surveyors also evaluate style of architecture and will use other assumptions e.g. no damaging building techniques have been used. Surveyors disregard things like furnishings, for example curtains.

Further Holywell assumptions, for example connection to sewers, are made as well as any significant Holywell environmental problems like pig farms, which are also considered as part of the valuation.

A Building survey won't include a valuation as standard. However we can add a valuation for a small additional fee by request. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.

Roof defects identified during a survey

We are buying a loft-conversion in Holywell - Will access to the roof of the home be problematic?

Property in and around Holywell with no other major issues can, to the disappointment of their would-be owners, still suffer roofing problems. All parts of the roof must be considered during the survey. This can include anything from ceiling joists to dormers. Your property surveyors may then recommend that some faults need urgent attention.

Roof upkeep can be the cause of serious accidents, which is why modern contractors refuse to work without scaffolding. It may be advisable to source an estimate for any work prior to exchange. Contact Marl J R of 3 Cad Las, Connah's Quay, Deeside, CH5 4RZ on 01244 815477 to request an estimate.
