Which Home Buyers Survey is the right choice?

  • House suitable for a HomeBuyer Report

  • Surveyor carrying out a Property Valuation

HomeBuyer Report

Should I select a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a home in Wedmore and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey, although it is effectively the same survey.

If the Wedmore property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out significant alterations, it would be better that you carry out a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap, however it will give you comprehensive details of the Wedmore property's condition and it includes advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

Shocking Electrics

When we were shown the unmodernised property we intend to acquire we saw that there were damaged electrical sockets - does a Wedmore survey report on electrical system condition?

When conducting a Wedmore Homebuyer Report your surveyor will usually report on the overall electrical system if it is clear that the electrics are in a less than satisfactory state of repair. This will include a visual examination of the unconcealed parts of the wiring, fusebox etc. and other issues like examining the condition of the fixed electrical appliances, for example water heaters. Verifying the location of the evidence of the most recent Periodic Inspection Report handled by a suitably qualified electrician should form part of the survey in Wedmore. Reporting on any evidence of any recent PIR conducted by an electrician should form part of the survey in Wedmore .

Damage resulting from flooding

When buying in Wedmore, should we be worried about a flood risk, and will the property surveyor check for possible flooding damage?

Heavy rain, drains blocked with sewage or soil and burst pipes can cause flooding. If you are planning to buy in a flood-affected area, a Building Survey will inform your decision. Your RICS surveyor may use several methods to determine if the residential property in question is in danger. In addition, the Building Survey may offer advice to limit damage in the event of flooding.Section J of the survey report contains details, where applicable, of flooding risks found within the boundaries of the Wedmore house or on adjacent sites. Also included on Environment Agency's flood risk alert are details of local rivers and other bodies of water prone to flooding.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

The rat-trap bond walls on this Georgian house has deteriorated - what should we do? Are brick walls hard to repair?

Brick-built Wedmore homes do benefit from many advantages. Unfortunately, they also experience diverse problems, from frost damaged pointing to signs of movement. Your surveyor will cover these in his report. One defect surveyors commonly report on brick buildings is damp and water damage resulting from gaps in uneven brickwork. South Essex Brickwork may be able to give an estimate for any necessary upkeep. Contact them at 5 Southfield Dr, Benfleet, SS7 2NT or 01702 668823.

Wedmore home purchasers may need to consider that great deal of variety can be found across Wedmore. As an example, Monk bond, which is similar to Flemish bond, but with two long bricks between every short one.
