HomeBuyer Report

Should I choose a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a home in Pewsey and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same level of survey.

If the Pewsey property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make an extension, you should you select a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap, but it does give comprehensive details of the Pewsey property's state of repair and it includes advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

Shocking Electrics

When we saw the mid-century home we are planning to move into we think we noticed that there is deterioration in the wiring and RCD unit, will a surveyor write anything on the general state of the electrical system?

When conducting a Pewsey Home Survey a RICS surveyor will usually report on the electrics if it is suspected that the electrics are in a dangerous state of repair. This will include a visual check (i.e. no removal of fittings) of the superficial sections of the wiring in addition to areas e.g. verifying the condition of the fitted appliances, e.g. storage radiators or if there is an off-peak /on-peak supply. .

Examining the evidence of a test on the condition of the electrical connections conducted by a suitably qualified electrician will be part of the survey.

Stone block wall damage

I am intending to put an offer in on a Pewsey house built Cotswold stone. What potential issues should we be aware of?

If left in a poor state of repair, stone walls will suffer from structural issues caused by factors including weathered stone. The problems which can plague poorly maintained stone vary considerably.

Stone walls are either regular (cut) or irregular in structure, each of which will provoke particular concerns. Buyers should consider that stone can have a great effect on the long-term viability of a property or extension, resulting in higher repair costs in future. For example, slate is far more water-resistant than many other stones. Repair advice often includes using traditional techniques when making repairs to the fabric of older buildings.

Building Surveys on houses

What are the advantages to commission a full structural survey instead of a HomeBuyer Report?

Structural Surveys don't actually exist now Building Survey has now superseded it. The HomeBuyer Report goes into enough detail for a non period unmodified home made out of typical building materials. The Building Survey would be the advisable type of survey for the house described. Shortly after a thorough site survey of the accessible parts, a formal report is provided to the purchaser giving any far-reaching insight on the materials used for the construction of the house. There are one or two limitations exist with any residential survey as a qualified surveyor wont be able to force or open up the fabric of the house nor can they comment on the regulatory compliance of heating systems.
