HomeBuyer Report

Should we get a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a house in Yarm and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same survey.

If the Yarm property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out any works or an extension on the Yarm property, RICS recommend you commission a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it will give you an in-depth analysis of the Yarm property's general condition as well as advice on defects and maintenance options .

When I saw the house I intend to lease, it appeared that there is evidence of an overload of the fuses; does the Yarm surveyor advise the wiring and fusebox?

The IEE (Institute of Electrical Engineers) suggest that a periodic test is carried out every 10 years (or every 5 if renting out).
