HomeBuyer Report

Should I have a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a house in Tiverton and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey but is essentially the same comprehensive survey.

If the Tiverton property is a flat, or is an older property, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials, you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any major works, RICS recommend you select a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it does offer exhaustive analysis of the Tiverton property's general condition as well as including an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

Shocking Electrics

When I went to see the thirties house I am planning to lease I noticed that there is an old fuse board ; does a surveyor advise on any faults with the electrics?

During a Homebuyer Report in Tiverton a RICS surveyor should report on the condition of the electrics if it looks like the electrics are in a poor state.

This will include a general view of open or exposed areas of the wiring or fusebox on top of issues like ascertaining the condition of any fitted electrical appliances, e.g. heaters or verifying the condition of any visible wiring a representative sample of switch gear.

Verifying the existence of any evidence of a test on the condition of the electrical connections conducted by a suitably qualified electrician should be part of the survey.

The IEE advise that a check to confirm whether an electrical installation is in a satisfactory condition need be completed every ten years (or every 5 if renting out).

Building Surveys on flats 1

Should we upgrade to full structural survey prior to investing in an abandoned thirties converted flat in Tiverton?

The Full Structural Survey is now dubbed the Building Survey. The Building Survey is the correct RICS survey if buying an unusual property such as a dilapidated Tiverton flat. The report will typically give full and frequently critical information about the property's standard of construction and repair along with any needs for future maintenance, following a thorough visual inspection of the accessible areas. Additionally flat conversions add complexity as the surveyor is only able to give an account of the flat itself, though the surveyor may advise on other tenant shared sections of the property for example shared roof spaces. For more details and a breakdown of what each survey type includes see the following article.

Traditionally built property

I am purchasing an older renovated farmhouse in Tiverton. What should be budgeted for maintenance?

Some buyers have considered buying a old, characterful home one day. For traditionally-built Tiverton property, age, however, can be problematic. Structures featuring traditional methods can be surprisingly expensive to maintain. You should bear in mind that specialist knowledge may be needed. Especially for property in a conservation area, Materials suitable for the work may be required. This may create disruption for new owners.
