HomeBuyer Report

Should I get a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a property in Sprotbrough and which one would be cheaper?

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

If the Sprotbrough property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any alterations, it would be better that you go for a Building Survey. This option is less cheap, but it will provide you with a more detailed analysis of the Sprotbrough property's condition as well as advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

Shocking Electrics

When I viewed the building I intend to lease I saw that there is evidence of an overload of the fuses, does a Sprotbrough survey write anything on the wiring and electrical system?

During a Building Survey in Sprotbrough the surveyor should usually report on the electrics if it is obvious that they are in a dangerous state. Your surveyor is expected to issues like verifying the state of the fixed electrical appliances e.g. storage radiators or reporting on the condition of a representative sample of light fittings. Inspecting any documents from the most recent Periodic Inspection Report conducted by an electrician will be part of the Homebuyer report in Sprotbrough.

The Institute of Electrical Engineers (IEE) advocate that a Periodic Inspection Report (PIR) be conducted every 10 years (5 if letting out).

Gas flame

Will the local surveyor examine the condition of the gas installations?

A will locate and visually check out any easily accessible parts of the gas system. This will mean gas related areas such as gas heaters (also LPG/oil/electric) at the home, in addition to gas associated appliances e.g. chimney linings. A Sprotbrough local surveyor won't remove external fittings and will not carry out any tests whatsoever on the system or appliances. Gas is potentially dangerous, should there be any worries about gas fittings, call a gas safe engineer.

Stone block wall damage

We are purchasing an 1850s property with stone walls. What should we look in to?

From Stanton Moor Sandstone to Wroxton Limestone, there are many types of stone used in the construction of homes in this country. Defects affecting stone-built properties in Sprotbrough can vary, spalling brick being relatively common. The two main forms of mortared stone wall construction found in Sprotbrough are regular and irregular.

Dry stone construction is used in garden walls and field boundaries, but is rarely employed for inhabited structures. Property surveys should give some repair guidance, like monitoring of natural wear, watching for signs of sudden or severe change. Purchasers renovating properties in Sprotbrough should be aware that a stone matching service is operated by the British Geological Survey, as part of the Building Stone Assessment GeoReport. To source stone quarried in Sprotbrough, you can contact local suppliers.

Contact a local mine or quarry, e.g. Waste Recycling Group, 6 Sidings Court, White Rose Way, Doncaster, South Yorkshire, DN4 5NU, quarrying Limestone, for details. Call 01302 303030 for more information.
