HomeBuyer Report

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

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey, however it is basically the same the same survey.

If the Adlington property is a flat or maisonette, or is a period property, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction, you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

Shocking Electrics

When I saw the home I am hoping to purchase it looked like there are doubts as to then safety of the electrical system, will the surveyor write anything on electrical system condition?

When performing a Adlington Home Buyers Survey your RICS surveyor will typically add detail on the electrical system if it is clear that the electrics are in a hazardous state.

This should include a visual examination of any uncovered areas of the wiring or fusebox as well as things like verifying any external installations such as out houses with a power supply or any water features. Inspecting any documentation from any recent PIR handled by an electrician will be part of the survey in Adlington.

Confirming the existence of any documents from the most recent Periodic Inspection Report conducted by a suitably qualified electrician will be part of the survey in Adlington .

Damage caused by high rainfall

Do we need to consider gutters, and does our RICS surveyor in Adlington mention it? Could it affect the property value?

Rainfall is a fact of life in the UK, however, the effect which rainfall has on Adlington houses is overlooked. One indication that drainage systems are worth a closer look is streaks of dirt down the outside of guttering.

Fortunately, problems with drains are generally easy to remedy. However, if the drains are disregarded, the resulting damage can lower the value of the property and become increasing harder to repair. In the worst case scenario, deterioration of a building's foundations can become fatal to its structural integrity, risking collapse.

Traditionally built property

What should we think about when purchasing a building constructed in 1750 in Adlington? What consequences will the cruck frame have on repairs?

Older construction methods and materials can sometimes be an issue, and Structures built using traditional methods can be difficult to upkeep. It is often the case that specialist knowledge is necessary. Especially for listed buildings, Traditional materials may be required. If you plan to make alterations to a period property, discuss options with your building surveyor for more information.
