HomeBuyer Report

Should we get a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a house in Boroughbridge and which is cheaper?

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

If the Boroughbridge property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out any alterations, RICS advise you choose a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap however it does offer exhaustive analysis of the Boroughbridge property's state of repair in addition to information on defects and maintenance options .

For more details you can get a Boroughbridge House Survey Quote on our site or call 0800 038 6667 to speak to one of our advisers.

Damage resulting from flooding

Are Boroughbridge properties at risk, and does a house surveyor search for water damage, or if neighbour's houses have been affected?

Last year was the second wettest year on record (source: The Guardian), and home purchasers and owners are understandably concerned. It is easily possible to assess whether a house is susceptible to flooding via any of a number of routes. The house survey may also, where appropriate, offer advice to limit damage in the event of flooding.Section J of the survey report contains details, where applicable, of flooding risks found within the boundaries of the Boroughbridge house or on adjacent sites. The property surveyor will usually recommend that the home purchasers seek legal advice on any related information mentioned in the report.

Landfill site near home

What should I be fearful of when buying a home near to a rubbish landfill

Landfill Sites come in many shapes and sizes including commercial waste. Understandably, no one ideally wants to live near one (4/5 people live near one). Concerns might include chemicals like dioxins. Potential health concerns such as cancer have been associated to landfill sites .

Boroughbridge RICS surveyors will examine structural issues resulting from the landfill. Your conveyancing solicitor will conduct environmental searches of the Environmental Agency data sets in addition to Harrogate Local Authority and inform you of any issues and let you know if the searches fail .

Shocking Electrics

When I visited the home I intend to lease, the agent said that there were damaged electrical sockets - does a the surveyor go into detail on any faults with the electrics?

When conducting a Building Survey in Boroughbridge the surveyor will usually comment on the electrics if it is clear that the electrics are in a less than satisfactory state. This should include an overview or check of exposed sections of the wiring or fusebox and other areas e.g. confirming the condition of the fixed electrical appliances, for example water heaters or checking the condition of any visible wiring a sample of light fittings and switch gear. Verifying the location of the evidence of a test on the condition of the electrical installations carried out by an electrician on the property should form part of the Homebuyer report in Boroughbridge.

The IEE (Institute of Electrical Engineers) recommend that a Periodic Inspection need be completed every 10 years (5 if letting).
