HomeBuyer Report

Should I get a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a house in Bradford On Avon and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey but is effectively the same level of survey.

If the Bradford On Avon property is a flat, or is an older property, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make significant alterations on the Bradford On Avon property, you should you go for a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap, but it will provide you with exhaustive analysis of the Bradford On Avon property's state of repair along with more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Roof defects identified during a survey

I am going to put in an offer in on a house in Bradford On Avon, and we are wary of potential roofing issues. What does the Bradford On Avon building surveyor look into during the survey?

This is frequently addressed by house surveyors. Many properties will suffer roof maintenance problems, such as mould. All aspects of the roof should be reviewed, from the fascias to the wind braces. Your house surveyors may then recommend that some faults need urgent attention.

In the past, roof maintenance would be carried out with just ladders and 'crawler boards'. This practice is terribly unsafe, and contractors today will insist that scaffolding be used. A quote (or several) for any necessary work should be acquired as soon as possible. Call Apex of 1 Bellefield Cr, Trowbridge, BA14 8SR on 01225 775181 to request a quote.

Shocking Electrics

When I visited a property I expect to move into, the agent said that there is an old fuse board - does a the surveyor go into detail on the wiring and electrical system?

When conducting a Bradford On Avon Home Survey your surveyor should remark on the electrics if it is clear that the electrics are in a dangerous state of repair. This will include a non invasive look-over of any uncovered sections of the wiring in addition to things like inspecting the state of any fixed electrical appliances, e.g. storage heaters or the state of residual circuit breakers. Looking at any documents from a test on the condition of the electrical wiring handled by a suitably qualified electrician will usually be part of the survey.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

I'm confused - which surveys include a valuation and reinstatement cost estimate (including costs for professional fees e.g legal fees) and what does it include?

A Homebuyer Report on a Bradford On Avon property will contain a RICS qualified surveyor valuation and a rebuilding cost as part of the report. To properly appraise an accurate value estimate your surveyor will call upon experience of property in Bradford On Avon and other factors relating to the property for instance: accommodation Surveyors also examine style of architecture and will draw upon other assumptions, for example there being no serious defects.

A Building Survey won't include a valuation as standard. A valuation can, however, be added for a nominal fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out. The surveyor relies on standard assumptions that there are no costly legal issues for example there being no on going disputes. Advice should be sought from your solicitor or licensed conveyancer. during the legal process.

Additional local area assumptions, for example water and drainage connectivity, are made as well as any significant environmental issues like brine mining activity, which will also be factored in.
