HomeBuyer Report

Should I get a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a home in Rutland and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same survey.

If the Rutland property is an apartment, or is a period property, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any alterations, you should you book a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap, but it will give you an in-depth analysis of the Rutland property's general condition along with more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Traditionally built property

My partner and I are purchasing a 15th Century warehouse conversion in Rutland. What should be budgeted for upkeep?

Vernacular, or traditional, architecture can be problematic, and Rutland property constructed with traditional methods can be challenging to maintain. It is often the case that expert knowledge is necessary. Traditional materials may also need to be sourced, particularly in the case of , for example, a Grade II listed house. This may create disruption for new owners. Mention this to the Rutland surveyor for more detail. Constructed in the 17th century, S. Luffenham Hall in South Luffenham is a good example of a Post Medieval country house.

Conservatory

On a HomeBuyer Report carried out in Rutland, what might 'E7 - Conservatory and porches' refer to?

RICS HomeBuyer Reports are transparent, detailed surveys of residential property, unlike less prescriptive surveys. These may offer more complex detail, but they are also less useful for purchasers deciding whether or not to purchase a residence. The surveyor uses a scale between 1 and 3 to show the severity of any defects or points of interest included in the report. E7 elements are visually inspected. Safety hazards, including floor-level glass and blocked escape routes from upper storey windows will also be mentioned in the report. Sagging railings is one example.

Shocking Electrics

When I went to see a sixties house I am hoping to move into I noticed that there could be corrosion of the wiring; will a Rutland survey advise on any faults with the electrics?

When carrying out a Rutland Homebuyer Report the home surveyor should usually remark on the condition of the electrics if it is obvious that the electrics are in an unsatisfactory state. Your surveyor is expected to potential areas for concern such as ascertaining the condition of any fitted electrical appliances, e.g. heaters or verifying the condition of any visible wiring a representative sample of the range of light fittings and switch gear. Looking at any documents from any recent PIR conducted by a suitably qualified electrician will form part of the Homebuyer report in Rutland.

The Institute of Electrical Engineers (IEE) recommend that a periodic test is carried out every 10 years (or every 5 if letting out). Always seek local Rutland advice on domestic electrical systems try Rudkin Steve Electrical Contractors Ltd , 12 Forest Gardens, Stamford, PE9 2FL .
