HomeBuyer Report

Should we have a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a home in West Dean and which is the cheapest?

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

If the West Dean property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out substantial modifications, it would be better that you commission a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it will offer exhaustive analysis of the West Dean property's state of repair as well as information on defects as well as maintenance options .

Shocking Electrics

When I went to see the house I intend to acquire, it looked like there could be corrosion of the wiring. will the West Dean surveyor report on the wiring and electrical system?

During a Home Buyers Survey in West Dean a surveyor should usually mention the electrical system if it is obvious that the electrics are in an unsatisfactory condition. This should include a general inspection (without removing any fittings) of any uncovered sections of the wiring, fusebox etc. and other things, for example verifying the condition of any fitted electrical appliances like storage heaters or the whereabouts of the meter. Reporting on any

evidence of the most recent Periodic Inspection Report handled by an electrician on the building should usually form part of the survey in West Dean.

Substandard guttering

In a West Dean HomeBuyer Report, what are the usual an red light rating defects affecting rainwater pipes and gutters?

The RICS HomeBuyer Report is designed to be user-friendly, unlike less prescriptive surveys. These may offer more complex detail, but they are also less useful for home buyers deciding whether or not to purchase a home. Your property surveyor will mark each aspect of the property included in Section E with either a green, orange or red rating, to indicate how serious the issues which the surveyor has discovered actually are. A condition rating of three is used to emphasise the most crucial repairs. 'Red' defects may also need further investigation by a qualified specialist before a full assessment can be made.

External areas covered by E3 are inspected visually, where access is possible. This section does not include combined system problems. Improperly sloped gutters is one example.

Traditionally built property

We are purchasing in West Dean. What will we need to look out for when purchasing a building constructed in 1750? What effect will the house's unusual construction have on upkeep?

A building's age can create difficulties for an owner, and Houses built using traditional methods can be a chore to maintain. You should be aware that specialist expertise may be needed. Especially for Grade I listed property, Traditional materials may be required. This may create disruption for new owners.
