HomeBuyer Report

Should I opt for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a home in Sheringham and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey and is basically the same the same level of survey.

If the Sheringham property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any alterations, RICS advise you go for a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap, but it will give you exhaustive analysis of the Sheringham property's condition as well as more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

Shocking Electrics

When I went to see a sixties house I am meaning to purchase I think we saw that there is evidence of an overload of the fuses - does a Sheringham survey go into detail on the electrical system?

During a Building Survey in Sheringham the surveyor should usually make a note on the overall electrical system if it is apparent that the electrics are in a poor state.

This will include a non invasive inspection (without removing any fittings) of open or exposed sections of the wiring or fusebox in addition to concerns such as the location of the meter or consumer unit. .

Examining the documentation from the most recent PIR conducted by a suitably qualified electrician will form part of the survey.

Confirming the existence of any documentation from a test on the condition of the electrical wiring conducted by a suitably qualified electrician will be part of the Homebuyer report in Sheringham .

The IEE suggest an electrical check be completed every ten years (or every 5 if letting). For expert nearby advice in Sheringham on domestic electrical systems call G J F Electrical Ltd , 28a Woodland Rise West, Sheringham, NR26 8PF .
