HomeBuyer Report

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

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey and is essentially the same.

If the Skegness property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any an extension, you should you select a Building Survey. This option is less cheap, but it does offer exhaustive analysis of the Skegness property's state of repair as well as more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Shocking Electrics

When we saw the building we are interested to buy we think we noticed that there is an old fuse board ; does a surveyor advise on the electrical system condition?

When carrying out a Skegness Home Survey your surveyor will usually comment on the electrical system if it looks like they are in a poor condition. This will include an overview or check (i.e. no removal of fittings) of any uncovered areas of the wiring or fusebox on top of areas e.g. if there are residual circuit breakers (RCD) and/or miniature circuit breakers (MCBs). Examining the documents from the most recent Periodic Inspection Report carried out by an electrician should be part of the survey. A check for the evidence of the most recent PIR conducted by an electrician will be part of the survey in Skegness .

The IEE suggest an electrical check is carried out every 10 years (5 if renting out).

Deteriorated timber

For the Skegness HomeBuyer Report, what does a an amber light rating mean for joinery and finishes?

A condition rating of two means that the element covered will need work at some point, but this may not be urgent. The RICS HomeBuyer Report is designed to be user-friendly, and avoid potentially unfamiliar technical language. The surveyor uses a scale between 1 and 3 to show how concerning each aspect of the report is.

They are visually inspected with the aid of binoculars where appropriate The condition of decorations to all joinery elements will be investigated. Buckled or cracked plywood or hardboard elements, for example, would be reported here.
