Shocking Electrics

When I went to see the home I am hoping to acquire it appeared that there was no RCD on the fuse board ; does Rainford survey go into detail on electrical defects?

During a Building Survey in Rainford a surveyor will comment on the condition of the electrics if it is apparent that the electrics are in a poor condition. He or she will also focus on potential areas for concern such as verifying the nature of electrical fittings in shower rooms. Inspecting any documentation from a test on the condition of the electrical wiring conducted by an electrician on the building will be part of the Homebuyer report in Rainford. Inspecting the documentation from the most recent PIR handled by an electrician on the property being surveyed will usually form part of the survey.

The IEE recommend a Periodic Inspection Report (PIR) be completed every 10 years (5 if renting out). For local advice on electrical testing - speak to Denis Murtagh Electrical , 46 Laurel Road, Haydock, St. Helens, WA11 0EX .

Miscellaneous external elements are including here that do not fit elsewhere in Section E. Contact your surveyor if you require more information. A conservatory's concrete floor that is cracked or spalled, for example, would be reported here.

Three colour coded ratings give an understanding of how serious the issues which the surveyor has discovered actually are.
