Looking for a Home Survey ? Which one should you choose?

HomeBuyer Report

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

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey and is essentially the same survey.

If the Redditch property is a flat, or is an older property, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make substantial modifications on the property, it would be better that you choose a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap but it will offer comprehensive details of the Redditch property's condition as well as more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

Shocking Electrics

When we viewed the building we are planning to lease, it appeared that there is deterioration in the wiring and RCD unit, does a surveyor advise electrical defects?

When carrying out a Redditch Home Survey the RICS surveyor should comment on the electrics if it looks like they are in a hazardous state. This should include a general check of the open areas of the wiring or fusebox as well as things, for example verifying the condition of the fixed appliances like storage heaters or checking the condition of any visible wiring a sample of light fittings and switch gear. Reporting on any evidence of a test on the condition of the electrical installations handled by an electrician on the property will form part of the survey.

The IEE recommend that a Periodic Inspection Report should be carried out every ten years (or every 5 if letting out).

Traditionally built property

We are buying a converted cow-house in Redditch. Will the home's age be an issue?

Some buyers would like to own property with real personality. Use of traditional methods, however, can sometimes be an issue, and Redditch property constructed with traditional methods can be a chore to repair. It is often the case that specialist knowledge is necessary. Especially for listed property, Traditional building materials may be required. If the property you are buying may require specialist maintenance, contact your chartered surveyor for more information. Built in the 15th century, Meadow Farm in Redditch is a fine example of a Medieval-period house.

Building Surveys on houses

Are there any benefits for doing the full structural survey instead of a HomeBuyer Report if purchasing a substantially modified cottage?

Full Structural Surveys are no longer offered by Surveyors as a newer format which is classified as the Building Survey is now available. A HomeBuyer Report has enough detail if investigating a mid 20th century of later unmodified property of normal building materials. A Building Survey would be the most advisable selection for the house mentioned. Around 3 days following a thorough survey of the inside and outside of the main building and permanent outbuildings a written report (digital and written copy) will be delivered to the buyer outlining in depth and far-reaching advice about the state of repair of the home. There will be certain limitations with a Building Survey insofar as a RICS surveyor cannot force or open up the fabric of the Redditch property, an example being undoing electrical fittings.
