What property survey is the best choice for my intended property purchase ?

HomeBuyer Report

Should I choose a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a property in Springfield Park and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey and is essentially the same.

If the Springfield Park property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out significant alterations, RICS advise you choose a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap but it will provide you with a thorough analysis of the Springfield Park property's general condition as well as including advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

Shocking Electrics

When I saw the thirties house I intend to move into, it looked like there is old wiring; will a surveyor report on the wiring and fusebox?

During a Building Survey in Springfield Park your RICS surveyor should mention the condition of the electrics if it is obvious that they are in an unsatisfactory state. A Chartered surveyor is required to give detail on things like verifying the condition of any fitted appliances e.g. storage heaters or verifying the condition of a sample of light fittings.

Confirming the existence of any documents from the most recent Periodic Inspection Report conducted by an electrician on the property being surveyed will usually be part of the survey in Springfield Park.

The IEE advise an electrical system check is carried out at least every 10 years (or every 5 if letting).

Damage resulting from flooding

When intending to buy in Springfield Park, should we be uneasy about a flood risk, and will the surveyor check for possible flood damage?

2012 was the 2nd wettest year on record, and it is not clear that reasonably-priced flooding insurance will be available in years to come.

As with many aspects of home ownership, flood prevention is better (and cheaper) than a cure.

Flooding can increase the likelihood of water entering a property, such as via loose patio doors. Less expensive preventative measures include the installation of air brick covers. The chartered surveyor may ask the property owner or occupier if the property has previously flooded. Note that the response to such enquires should not be exclusively relied upon.

Fortunately, no flood warnings were found for Springfield Park, according to the Environment Agency.

Roof defects identified during a survey

A leaky roof has created issues for us in the old property. What does a property surveyor investigate as part of the survey?

Questions like this are often asked of surveyors by house purchasers who are aware that property can, to the disappointment of their would-be owners, still suffer roofing woes, like mould. All aspects of the roof should be reviewed, from the sheeting to the roof battens. Issues can often arise in the case of flat roofs, caused by a poor asphalt covering.

Repairs need not always be costly, but they should be budgeted for carefully. A building survey prior to exchange is highly recommended, so that you fully understand what expenses you will be facing. It may be advisable to source an estimate for any work prior to exchange.
