HomeBuyer Report

Should we choose a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a property in Kirkby and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey and is effectively the same level of survey.

If the Kirkby property is a flat or maisonette, or is a period property, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any an extension on the Kirkby property, RICS advise you carry out a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it will give a more detailed analysis of the Kirkby property's condition and it includes advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

Shocking Electrics

When we went to see the unmodernised property we are intending to move into we think we noticed that there was some evidence of an overload of the fuses; does the Kirkby surveyor write anything on the electrical system?

During a Building Survey in Kirkby the surveyor should usually add detail on the electrics if it appears that they are in an unsatisfactory state.

This will include a by sight look-over of open or exposed parts of the wiring, fusebox etc. and other potential areas for concern such as inspecting the state of any fitted appliances e.g. storage radiators or reporting on the condition of a representative sample of light fittings.

Verifying the existence of any evidence of the most recent Periodic Inspection Report conducted by a suitably qualified electrician should form part of the survey.

The IEE (Institute of Electrical Engineers) strongly advise that a Periodic Inspection Report be completed every 10 years (5 if renting out). For expert local advice in Kirkby on all things electrical call G R E S Electrical Services , 6 Badby Wood, Liverpool, L33 8YQ .

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

The Flemish bond walls on this house in Kirkby appears to have several cracks. What are the possible consequences?

Kirkby brick-walled houses can suffer from various issues and defects, such as DPC failure. The property surveyor should report on these, with advice on the consequences were they to go untreated. One problem often found is diagonal cracks which widen as they move upwards. These may result from ground movement, or where a timber element of the wall has rotted away. Contact several local builders for quotes, including Ingleby Brickwork of 4 Wharton Rd, Stamford Bridge, York, YO41 1PN on 01759 377556.

Examples of decorative or unusual usage of brick include adding other characterful elements of masonry, such as flushwork. Consider the advice of both the surveyor and a builder or other specialist if potential structural defects arise during the survey.
