HomeBuyer Report

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

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, although it is basically the same the same level of survey.

If the St Leonard Shoreditch property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any alterations, you should you commission a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap, however it will offer exhaustive analysis of the St Leonard Shoreditch property's condition as well as information on defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

Shocking Electrics

When we viewed a sixties house we are intending to purchase we saw that there is an old fuse board ; will a surveyor report on electrical defects?

When performing a St Leonard Shoreditch Home Buyers Survey your surveyor will usually make a note on the electrics if it is obvious that the electrics are in a dangerous state of repair. A Surveyor is expected to report on things like inspecting the outside installations like out houses with a power supply or any external power sockets. Reporting on any evidence of a test on the condition of the electrical installations conducted by a suitably qualified electrician should usually be part of the survey. Inspecting the documentation from any recent PIR handled by a suitably qualified electrician on the property will usually form part of the survey.

The IEE advise that a Periodic Inspection Report (PIR) be conducted every ten years (5 if renting out).

Damage resulting from flooding

We believe this residence is located in a low lying part of St Leonard Shoreditch. Is there a major flood risk? Would our residential surveyor consider flood damage?

Unfortunately, distance from water or height above sea level is no guarantee that a St Leonard Shoreditch property will be secure against flooding, and property purchasers cannot know that insurance against flooding will continue to be available. It is easily possible to assess whether a house is susceptible to flooding via any of a number of routes, but a surveyor will also make recommendations to prepare for the worst. An awareness of characteristics of the St Leonard Shoreditch area likely to affect the residence also enables the property surveyor to advise flooding may be a risk. Also included on Environment Agency's flood danger alert are details of local rivers and other bodies of water prone to flooding.

According to the Environment Agency, no recent flood alerts were found for St Leonard Shoreditch.

Traditionally built property

We are buying an older converted stable in St Leonard Shoreditch. What consequences will the slate roof have on regular maintenance?

Some buyers have looked at purchasing a home with character. Older construction methods and materials, however, can create difficulties for an owner. Structures employing traditional or "vernacular" techniques can be difficult to maintain. It is often the case that specialist expertise is necessary. Especially for listed property, Traditional materials may be required. Mention this to your chartered surveyor for further advice.
