HomeBuyer Report

Should we get a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a home in Bushey and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey but is effectively the same survey.

If the Bushey property is an apartment, or is a period property, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any substantial modifications, it would be better that you go for a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap however it will give you comprehensive details of the Bushey property's state of repair as well as including advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

Building Surveys on flats 1

Is it worth paying more for a full structural survey on a flat in Bushey?

The Full Structural Survey is now known as a Building Survey.

The HomeBuyer Report is detailed enough if buying a post 1950s unmodified Bushey flat made out of normal building materials. The Building Survey is definitely the correct one to choose for the property mentioned. Approximately 3 days after a thorough survey of all accessible areas, a non prescribed format of report will be delivered to the buyer specifying in depth and far-reaching information in relation to the construction and uses of the home. You should be aware of certain limitations exist with a property survey as a local Bushey surveyor will not be able to open up the fabric of the property for example, or comment on the regulatory compliance of heating systems. Also flats frequently make a full survey more complicated meaning a surveyor

is only authorised give details on the flat itself, though the surveyor may comment on communal parts of the property for example the drains. For more information and a breakdown of what each survey type includes click here.

Shocking Electrics

When we visited the building we are intending to lease we saw that there are doubts as to then safety of the electrical system, does a surveyor write anything on electrical defects?

When carrying out a Homebuyer Report in Bushey a qualified surveyor will typically mention the overall electrical system if it is clear that they are in an unsafe state of repair. A Chartered surveyor should also report back on concerns such as checking the state of repair of any fitted appliances, e.g. storage heaters or checking the condition of a sample of light fittings. Inspecting the documents from the most recent Periodic Inspection Report carried out by an electrician will usually be part of the survey.

The IEE suggest that a Periodic Inspection Report (PIR) need be completed at least every 10 years (or every 5 if renting out).

Damage resulting from flooding

We are purchasing a residence in Bushey, does the house surveyor investigate any water damage?

It is estimated that over two million houses and flats are in danger of flooding damage. Both home buyers and home owners in areas in danger of flooding are right to be worried. Your RICS surveyor may use several methods to determine if the property in Bushey in question is in danger. In addition, the Building Survey may advise appropriate repairs.Preventative measures can include costly but effective solutions e.g. raised door thresholds. Oral enquiries can sometimes be made of the agent, but this information may not be accurate.
