HomeBuyer Report

Should we book a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a property in Woodbury and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey, however it is essentially the same.

If the Woodbury property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any major works on the property, RICS advise you select a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap but it will give you an in-depth analysis of the Woodbury property's state of repair as well as including information on defects and maintenance options .

Shocking Electrics

When I went to see the thirties house I am intending to move into, the agent said that there were damaged electrical sockets; will the Woodbury surveyor write anything on electrical defects?

When conducting a Woodbury Home Survey the home surveyor should usually remark on the electrics if it is suspected that they are in a less than satisfactory state.

This should include a visual look-over of the superficial sections of the wiring or fusebox and other things like verifying the condition of fixed electrical appliances, for example heaters. .

Examining the documentation from the most recent Periodic Inspection Report conducted by an electrician will usually be part of the Homebuyer report in Woodbury.

Confirming the existence of any documentation from a test on the condition of the electrical wiring handled by a suitably qualified electrician will form part of the survey.

Building Surveys on maisonettes

Should we commission a full structural survey prior to acquiring an extended, Victorian purpose built maisonette in Woodbury?

The Building Survey is the new name for the Full Structural Survey following its renaming in 2010 by the RICS. You should choose the Building Survey for the maisonette mentioned. The HomeBuyer Report goes into enough detail for a mid century or later unmodified property of conventional building materials. There are certain limitations are integral with any residential survey - a qualified RICS surveyor is not in a position to force or open up the fabric of the property for example, or assess the serviceability of energy sources.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

If we are purchasing in Woodbury, what directions can the surveyor offer for buildings constructed with Flemish bond walls?

Brick-constructed houses in Woodbury demonstrate several benefits, but they can also be affected by both minor and serious issues, ranging from sulphate expansion to moisture damage. For instance, diagonal cracks which widen as they move upwards. These may result from ground movement, or where a timber element of the wall has rotted away and should be taken very seriously. SS Constructions may be able to give a quote for any maintenance work. Contact them at 07857 807184 or Great Pk Rd, Rotherham, S61 3PE.

Other aspects of a property which may feature decorative include the use of 'clicker' or misfired brick. If the surveyor does raise concerns about a brick wall defect or structural issue, it may be wise to speak to a builder before completion to assess the extent and cost of the work.
