HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to go for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a property in Stanford Le Hope and which one would be cheaper?

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

If the Stanford Le Hope property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any significant alterations on the property, it would be better that you opt for a Building Survey instead. This survey is less cheap, however it does give an in-depth analysis of the Stanford Le Hope property's general condition as well as information on defects and maintenance options .

Damage caused by high rainfall

Do I need to investigate gutters? If there is work that needs to be done, will they be costly to fix?

Rainfall is a fact of life in the UK, however, the effect which heavy rain has on Stanford Le Hope property is usually overlooked by purchasers. For instance, spalling on walls around drainage strongly suggest that the rainwater goods are at risk. If you are concerned, consider asking the surveyor for more information.

That is not to say that drainage problems should cause you to reconsider a purchase. They are usually a simple matter to resolve, if maintenance is taken seriously. However, if the drains are not cared for, the resulting damage can lower the value of the property and become increasing harder to repair.

Roof defects identified during a survey

We're purchasing a house in Stanford Le Hope. What does a building surveyor investigate as part of the survey?

Property in Stanford Le Hope in good condition can be hiding serious damage to the roof. From sheeting to valley gutters, every element of the roof will be considered. Flat roofs can also be a nuisance, caused by factors like holes or cracks in the waterproof layer.

Roof repairs can be the cause of serious accidents, which is why modern contractors refuse to work without scaffolding. A quote for the work could be sought from a reliable Stanford Le Hope contractor. Call CF Roofing Services of 10 Redlie Close, Stanford-Le-Hope, SS17 8BB on 01375 407774 for a quote.

Shocking Electrics

When I visited the building I am planning to buy, it looked like there is an old fuse board , does a the Stanford Le Hope surveyor write anything on electrical defects?

During a Stanford Le Hope Home Survey the surveyor will add detail on the state of the electrics if it is obvious that the electrics are in a dangerous state of repair. This should include an overview or check (i.e. no removal of fittings) of the superficial sections of the wiring and other areas e.g. confirming the state of any fixed appliances like electric showers or reporting on the condition of a representative sample of light fittings and switch gear. Inspecting any evidence of any recent PIR handled by an electrician will form part of the survey in Stanford Le Hope.

The IEE advocate that an electrical system check need be completed every 10 years (5 if letting).
