HomeBuyer Report

Should I opt for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a house in Sutton on Trent and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey but is effectively the same level of survey.

If the Sutton on Trent property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make significant alterations, it would be better that you choose a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap, but it will offer a thorough analysis of the Sutton on Trent property's general condition and it includes advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

Shocking Electrics

When we went to see the home we are intending to acquire it appeared that there were damaged electrical sockets - does a the Sutton on Trent surveyor advise the wiring and fusebox?

During a Sutton on Trent Homebuyer Report the RICS surveyor will usually add detail on the condition of the electrics if it is obvious that they are in an unsafe state.

This will include a visual check of the accessible areas of the wiring or fusebox in addition to potential areas for concern such as checking the state of repair of the fitted appliances, for example electric showers or reporting on the condition of a sample of the range of light fittings and switch gear. Inspecting any documents from a test on the condition of the electrical wiring conducted by an electrician will form part of the survey.

The IEE advocate a Periodic Inspection be completed at least every 10 years (or every 5 if letting out).

Conservation area

Are there any issues we would be advised to verify if buying a converted flat in Sutton on Trent in conservation area ?

There are nearly 10, 000 of conservation areas in the UK which are designated by local authorities.

A Building Surveyors need to have relevant knowledge of relevant local factors and the relation they have on the home. Property values tends to be higher than non conservation area equivalents as a result of them retaining original features. However many have fallen into shoddy condition for example - the addition of PVC windows and doors

Surveyors are expected tell you whether the building is possibly is designated and Section I of the Homebuyer Report will recommend further investigations are conducted as part of the legal process. Unapproved modifications to the property will also be advised in your survey but these are really more a concern for your legal adviser. Page Nelson are a local firm situated at Victory House, North Kesteven, Lincolnshire, LN6 3QR should be able to advise. Tel: 01522 687500

Damage caused by high rainfall

Should I investigate gutters? Also, if there is damage, will they be costly to fix?

The impact of climate change is widely reported, yet wet conditions and the effect it can have on a residence are overlooked by purchasers. Signs that drainage systems are blocked include mildew in the attic. Blocked rainwater goods can result in cracked foundations and subsidence.

Whether buying in Sutton on Trent or elsewhere, difficult drainage systems do not necessarily mean that you need to pull out. Such matters are often simple to resolve, if maintenance is taken seriously.
