HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to go for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a house in Millwall and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey but is effectively the same survey.

If the Millwall property is a flat, or is an older property, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction, then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any alterations, it would be better that you carry out a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap, but it does offer a more detailed analysis of the Millwall property's condition as well as advice on structural defects , repairs as well as maintenance options .

Timber damage by insect larvae

A local warned us about insects on the road - Will the Home Buyers Survey investigate this?

Pests like wasps may sometimes seem a small, even irrelevant, matter when buying in Millwall. It may not be obvious that a property is suffering a severe pest problem, as evidence can be overlooked. As an example, small tunnels in wooded beams may indicate the presence of house longhorn beetles. Remedies can be disruptive to residents, and may require you to move out during the work in extreme

cases. As awareness of less common problems grows, more surveys should identify these and advise on remedies.

Shocking Electrics

When we viewed the mid-century home we are intending to buy it looked like there was no RCD on the fuse board , will a Millwall survey write anything on electrical defects?

During a Millwall Homebuyer Report a qualified surveyor should report on the overall electrical system if it is suspected that the electrics are in a dangerous condition. A Surveyor will also provide detail on issues like checking the condition of fixed electrical appliances like storage heaters or verifying the condition of a sample of light fittings. Inspecting any documents from a test on the condition of the electrical installations carried out by an electrician will usually form part of the survey in Millwall.

The IEE suggest that a Periodic Inspection should be carried out at least every 10 years (5 if renting out).

Traditionally built property

I am purchasing an old cottage. Will the age of the home be a problem?

A property's age can occasionally give buyers second thoughts. Property built using traditional methods can be unexpectedly hard to upkeep. It is often the case that specialist expertise is necessary. Traditional building materials may also need to be sourced. This can make obtaining a full structural or building survey essential.
