HomeBuyer Report

Should we go for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a house in Newton Ferrers and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey and is essentially the same level of survey.

If the Newton Ferrers property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any major works, RICS advise you book a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap, but it does provide you with an in-depth analysis of the Newton Ferrers property's condition as well as advice on defects and maintenance options .

Shocking Electrics

When we were shown the mid-century home we are hoping to acquire we noticed that there are doubts as to then safety of the electrical system, will the surveyor advise on the electrical system condition?

When carrying out a Home Survey in Newton Ferrers a qualified surveyor will usually make a note on the condition of the electrics if it is clear that they are in a poor state of repair. A Surveyor is required to things like checking the condition of any fixed appliances, for example electric showers or where to find the consumer unit.

Verifying the existence of any documents from a test on the condition of the electrical connections handled by a suitably qualified electrician on the property will form part of the survey.

Always seek guidance on electrical systems, contact Electric All , 119 Yealm Pk, Yealmpton, Plymouth, PL8 2NS .

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Which Newton Ferrers Surveys include a valuation and reinstatement cost estimate (including costs for reconstructing a retaining wall) and how is it worked out

A Homebuyer Report will contain a valuation and a reinstatement cost. To be able to determine the market value the surveyor will relate to area knowledge and other considerations relating to the property for instance: square metres.

Surveyors also examine materials used and draw upon key assumptions e.g. it is connected to mains services. Surveyors disregard things like furnishings e.g. carpets.

Additional local area assumptions, like connection to sewers, are made as well as any significant local environmental issues like flightpaths, also being considered.

A Building survey won't include a valuation as standard. However we can add a valuation for a nominal fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.

Asbestos roof tiles

The neighbour commented that there may be asbestos ceiling material concealed in the property. What is asbestos?

Asbestos is a dangerous material. There are over 60 types, 6 of which were used in the UK and were commonly found in the building materials for example cement. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has very good sound absorption qualities and it may be found in ceilings. Technically all forms are ultimately dangerous and might lead to lung cancer following prolonged exposure.

If found, care should be taken never to remove the asbestos and expert advice must be taken immediately. On no account try to disturb it yourself.

Surveyors do not confirm the existence asbestos on a survey. Surveyors will note potential asbestos during the survey and should suggest further investigation.
