HomeBuyer Report

Should I get a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a property in Ravenglass and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same.

If the Ravenglass property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any major works, it would be better that you carry out a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it will give you a thorough analysis of the Ravenglass property's state of repair along with an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

For more details you can get a Ravenglass Home Survey Quote via our website or call us 0800 038 6667 to speak to our survey team.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

I've put in an offer in Ravenglass. What warnings would the surveyor give? What impact do Ravenglass environmental conditions have?

Brick property in Ravenglass will suffer from distinct issues, ranging from badly applied render to lack of a damp proof course. Where relevant, these will be discussed in the survey report.

A defect often found is diagonal cracking caused by ground movement. Spooner D J may be able to give an estimate for any necessary upkeep. Contact them at 35 Whitby Gardens, Sutton, SM1 3NA or 020 8644 9096.

A range of techniques of brick building have been a feature of house construction in this country for 100s of years. Maintenance work may be more time-consuming and costly than you assume.

Shocking Electrics

When I saw the period property I am meaning to lease, it looked like there is deterioration in the wiring and RCD unit, will the surveyor report on the electrics?

When preparing a Ravenglass Building Survey the home surveyor should remark on the state of the electrics if it is clear that they are in an unsafe condition. A Home surveyor will also provide detail on things like verifying the category of the electrical fittings in shower rooms or checking the state of a representative sample of the range of light fittings and switch gear. Reporting on any documents from the most recent Periodic Inspection Report carried out by a suitably qualified electrician should usually be part of the survey.

The IEE advocate that a Periodic Inspection need be completed every ten years (or every 5 if renting out).
