HomeBuyer Report

Should we go for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a house in Leyland and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same.

If the Leyland property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any alterations, you should you go for a Building Survey instead. The Building Survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it will offer comprehensive details of the Leyland property's general condition along with advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

The rat-trap bond walls on this Victorian house has deteriorated. What are the possible consequences?

Brick-built Leyland residential property demonstrate several benefits over stone-built property. Unfortunately, they also indicate various issues and defects, including frost damage and badly applied render. Such defects will be discussed in the report. A defect requiring immediate attention is wall tie failure. This occurs when ties supporting old cavity walls rust, leading to horizontal cracks and separation of the internal and eternal leaves of the wall. J M may be able to give a quote for any maintenance work. Contact them at 0118-945 5436 or 37 Westwood Rd, Tilehurst, Reading, RG31 5PL.

Buyers in Leyland should consider that a great deal of variety feature in construction throughout Leyland. One example is English bond, featuring alternating rows of long and short faces of bricks.

Shocking Electrics

When I saw the house I am planning to acquire, the agent said that there could be corrosion of the wiring. Will a Leyland Homebuyer Report go into detail on electrical system condition?

When performing a Building Survey in Leyland the RICS surveyor will usually add detail on the state of the electrics if it appears that they are in a dangerous state. This should include a by sight check of any revealed parts of the wiring, fusebox etc. as well as potential areas for concern such as verifying the condition of any fitted appliances like water heaters or checking the condition of any visible wiring a sample of light fittings. Inspecting any evidence of any recent PIR carried out by a suitably qualified electrician on the building will be part of the Homebuyer report in Leyland. Examining the evidence of a test on the condition of the electrical wiring carried out by a suitably qualified electrician should be part of the survey.

The IEE advocate a periodic test be conducted every ten years (or every 5 if letting).

Chimney stacks

In a Leyland HomeBuyer Report, what will 'E1 - Chimney stacks' refer to?

RICS created the HomeBuyer Report to give property buyers a clear and easy to read report on the condition of the home they plan to buy, unlike some more complex survey reports. The surveyor uses a scale between 1 and 3 to show the severity of defects uncovered during the survey.

An example of this is a chimney extender which is rusted or stuck. Elements of the property covered by this section are inspected by eye from the ground if the roof is difficult to access.
