HomeBuyer Report

Should I select a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a house in St Annes and which one is the cheapest?

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

If the St Annes property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out substantial modifications, it would be better that you opt for a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap, however it will provide you with comprehensive details of the St Annes property's general condition in addition to advice on defects and maintenance options .

Damaged Render

What defects will the Property Surveyor look for on a smooth stucco home in St Annes.

Stucco is smooth type of render. Typically it is layered over underlying red brick hardens to form a smooth and even finish. The finish is highly attractive and is was often applied to Victorian and Regency homes. Stucco is often problematic and Surveyors in St Annes sometimes discover potentially expensive to remedy problems such as horizontal visible cracking revealing the underlying mortar joints. Other potential problems can possibly result be when moisture beneath windows that causes large areas of detachment. Re-covering Stucco problems may be dear as the skills are getting more difficult to find.

Traditionally built property

I am buying a farmstead. What impact will the cladding have on maintenance?

Some purchasers have looked at purchasing a house with personality, like a barn conversion. Older construction methods and materials, however, can sometimes be an issue. St Annes houses showcasing traditional or "vernacular" techniques can be a drain to maintain. You should be aware that expert knowledge may be needed, and it could also be necessary to find Traditional building materials. Discuss this with the building surveyor for more detail.

Shocking Electrics

When we saw the building we are meaning to buy it looked like there is old wiring - does a surveyor write anything on electrical defects?

When carrying out a St Annes Home Buyers Survey the home surveyor will typically comment on the state of the electrics if it appears that they are in a dangerous condition.

This should include a visual view of the open sections of the wiring, fusebox etc. in addition to things like the whereabouts of the meter or consumer unit. Verifying the location of the documentation from the most recent Periodic Inspection Report carried out by a suitably qualified electrician should usually be part of the survey. Reporting on any documentation from a test on the condition of the electrical wiring conducted by an electrician will usually form part of the Homebuyer report in St Annes .

The IEE (Institute of Electrical Engineers) suggest a Periodic Inspection be completed every ten years (5 if letting).
