HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to have a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a home in Perivale and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey and is essentially the same comprehensive survey.

If the Perivale property is an apartment, or is a period property, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out any major works, it would be better that you choose a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap but it does provide you with comprehensive details of the Perivale property's state of repair in addition to advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Shocking Electrics

When we visited the thirties house we are planning to move into it looked like there might be an overload of the fuses/fusebox; does a surveyor write anything on the electrical system?

When conducting a Perivale Homebuyer Report a surveyor will typically mention the electrical system if it appears that the electrics are in an unsatisfactory state of repair. This will include a by sight (i.e. without undoing fittings) inspection and examination of open or exposed areas of the wiring or fusebox as well as potential areas for concern such as checking the condition of any fixed appliances, for example

electric showers or verifying the condition of any visible wiring a sample of the range of light fittings and switch gear. Reporting on any evidence of the most recent Periodic Inspection Report handled by an electrician should usually form part of the survey.

The Institute of Electrical Engineers advise a Periodic Inspection Report (PIR) be completed at least every 10 years (5 if letting).

Damaged Render

What will the RICS Surveyor look for on a smooth stucco coated Victorian home in Perivale which we wish to buy.

Stucco is actually a sort of flat finish render. Commonly stucco is applied to brick that dries to a smooth stone like surface. It is highly attractive and is found on Victorian and Georgian homes. it can be prone to defect and Perivale Home Buyers Suveys can detail any number of problems for instance water trapped behind paint (assuming painted). Other potential problems may be when water enters below sills which results in detachment. Re-covering Stucco problems can be difficult as the skills are becoming harder to find.

Traditionally built property

What should we take notice of when buying older property in Perivale? Will the house's age be a problem?

Some buyers in Perivale have considered buying a old, characterful home one day. The age of a structure, however, can be a cause of concern for would-be buyers. Structures built with traditional methods can be challenging to maintain. You should be aware that specialist knowledge may be needed. .

Construction materials, such as matching stone or wood, may also need to be sourced. If you have doubts, speak to your property surveyor for more information.
