HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to have a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a property in Marford and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey and is effectively the same comprehensive survey.

If the Marford property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out any alterations, you should you commission a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap but it will offer exhaustive analysis of the Marford property's general condition in addition to an opinion on defects , repairs and maintenance options .

Shocking Electrics

When I was shown a sixties house I am meaning to acquire, it appeared that there is evidence of an overload of the fuses, will the surveyor advise the wiring and fusebox?

During a Home Survey in Marford the RICS surveyor will comment on the overall electrical system if it is clear that the electrics are in an unsatisfactory state.

This will include an overview (i.e. without undoing fittings) inspection of the accessible areas of the wiring, fusebox etc. in addition to issues like verifying the condition of visible wiring. Reporting on any evidence of a test on the condition of the electrical installations conducted by a suitably qualified electrician will form

part of the survey in Marford. Inspecting any evidence of a test on the condition of the electrical connections conducted by an electrician will form part of the survey.

The Institute of Electrical Engineers advocate a check to confirm whether an electrical installation is in a satisfactory condition be conducted every ten years (or every 5 if letting).

Gas flame

Will a RICS surveyor inspect the serviceability of the gas heaters?

Your qualified RICS surveyor will locate and visually survey any easily accessible parts of the system. This means things like the gas pipe route at the building, as well as gas affiliated appliances, for instance chimney breasts. External covers however, won't be undone. Of course, gas is potentially dangerous, should you have any worries relating to gas installations, contact a gas safe engineer.

The regulations stipulate landlords have to conduct appliance and installation inspections annually and punishments for failure to comply are harsh .

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

What directions can you offer for properties built from Dutch bond brick?

Brick Marford residential property will indicate both minor and serious issues. These can include DPC failure or signs of movement. An especially severe issue is extensive damp where water has been drawn in through or between poorly fitted brickwork. Contact Newman Geriant for a repairs estimate at 01685 370106 or 2/Ashleigh Gr/Penydarren Park, Merthyr Tydfil, CF47 8AG.

For example, Flemish bond or shiner bond are both used in Marford residential property. The consequences of amateur repairs can either worsen the problem, or create entirely new defects in a brick wall. Professional advice can reduce the risk of this.
