HomeBuyer Report

Should we select a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a home in Aston on Trent and which one is cheaper?

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

If the Aston on Trent property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out any works or an extension, it would be better that you commission a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it does give you an in-depth analysis of the Aston on Trent property's state of repair as well as more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

External walls

In the HomeBuyer Report, what might 'E4' refer to?

RICS HomeBuyer Reports are transparent, detailed surveys of residential property, and avoid potentially unfamiliar technical language. Three colour coded ratings give an understanding of how serious the issues which the surveyor has discovered actually are. Note that concealed elements will not be considered, an in-depth building survey may be required if serious foundational issues are suspected. Observations on the Damp Proof Course are also reported here. Weak or absent brick wall foundations, for example, is included in Section E.

Shocking Electrics

When we went to see the building we want to move into, it appeared that there could be corrosion of the wiring - will a surveyor advise on the electrical system condition?

When conducting a Aston on Trent Building Survey your surveyor will make a note on the condition of the electrics if it is clear that they are in an unsafe condition. This will include a general inspection of the superficial areas of the wiring, fusebox etc. as well as other things, for example inspecting the state of any fitted appliances like storage heaters or checking the condition of a representative sample of light fittings. Verifying the location of the documents from any recent PIR carried out by a suitably qualified electrician should usually be part of the survey.

The Institute of Electrical Engineers (IEE) advocate a periodic test is carried out every ten years (5 if letting out).
