Which Home Buyers Survey should you choose?

HomeBuyer Report

Should I get a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a house in Mansfield and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same.

If the Mansfield property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction, you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out substantial modifications on the Mansfield property, RICS advise you book a Building Survey. This option is less cheap but it does provide you with an in-depth analysis of the Mansfield property's state of repair in addition to more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

Chimney stacks

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

RICS HomeBuyer Reports are transparent, detailed surveys of residential property. As buyers in Mansfield are unlikely to be experts in local building techniques and materials themselves, the report is written with as little jargon as possible. The surveyor uses a scale between 1 and 3 to show the impact on the property individual defects may have.

One example would be a total chimney height which is too short. They will be checked thoroughly from the ground.

Shocking Electrics

When we visited the building we are planning to buy, the agent said that there was no RCD on the fuse board , does a Mansfield Homebuyer Report write anything on electrical defects?

When performing a Home Buyers Survey in Mansfield a surveyor will report on the state of the electrics if it is apparent that they are in a hazardous state of repair. This will include a by sight look-over of any uncovered parts of the wiring or fusebox on top of potential areas for concern such as whether there are miniature circuit breakers or verifying the condition of any visible wiring a representative sample of switch gear.

Verifying the existence of any documentation from the most recent Periodic Inspection Report carried out by a suitably qualified electrician should usually form part of the survey.

Verifying the existence of any documentation from a test on the condition of the electrical installations conducted by a suitably qualified electrician should form part of the survey.

The IEE (Institute of Electrical Engineers) advise a PIR is carried out every 10 years (or every 5 if letting).
