HomeBuyer Report

Should we book a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a house in Wide Open and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, however it is essentially the same.

If the Wide Open property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials, then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any works or an extension, it would be better that you go for a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap, but it does give a thorough analysis of the Wide Open property's general condition along with more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Building Surveys on houses

What are the benefits to get the full structural survey in Wide Open rather than a HomeBuyer Report?

Structural Surveys don't actually exist now and the Building Survey has now superseded it. If you are looking into purchasing a modified home like a tatty house, it is the best home survey to get. The HomeBuyer Report is detailed enough if investigating a mid 20th century of later unmodified house assembled from conventional building materials. After an exhaustive survey of the accessible parts a written report (digital and written copy) will be sent to the purchaser detailing in depth and far-reaching information about the construction materials used on the house. There will be several provisos with the survey because a chartered surveyor wont be able to force or open up the fabric of the Wide Open house for example removing secured panels. This page for a simple guide on home buyers surveys in Wide Open.

Damage resulting from flooding

We are intending to buy a residence in Wide Open, does the chartered surveyor search for flood damage?

Last year was the second wettest year on record (source: The Met Office), and insurance premiums. can be significantly affected for houses and flats in flood-risk areas. Your RICS surveyor may use several methods to determine if the property in question is in danger.

Flood water can enter a home through several routes, including landscaping or paved areas sloping towards the property. The GroundSure Flood Report is one of several risk screening reports designed to provide an overview of whether a home lies within an area of potential or previous flood risk. The building surveyor will usually recommend that the property purchasers seek legal advice on any related information mentioned in the report.

Shocking Electrics

When we saw the building we want to move into, it appeared that there were damaged electrical sockets; does the Wide Open surveyor advise the electrics?

When carrying out a Home Buyers Survey in Wide Open the surveyor will typically comment on the state of the electrics if it appears that the electrics are in an unsatisfactory state. The RICS surveyor is expected to report on possible problems relating to things like checking the condition of a representative sample of light fittings.

Verifying the existence of any documentation from a test on the condition of the electrical connections carried out by a suitably qualified electrician on the property will usually form part of the survey. Reporting on any documentation from any recent PIR carried out by a suitably qualified electrician should usually form part of the Homebuyer report in Wide Open .

The IEE recommend that a Periodic Inspection Report (PIR) be conducted at least every 10 years (or every 5 if letting). We recommend you always get advice in Wide Open on electrical testing call Scott & Coltherd Ltd , Express Works/Brunswick Ind Est, Brunswick Village, Newcastle Upon Tyne, NE13 7BA .
