HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to go for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a property in Caldicot and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same level of survey.

If the Caldicot property is a flat, or is 100 or more years old, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out substantial modifications, you should you carry out a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap, but it does give you a more detailed analysis of the Caldicot property's condition as well as advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

Shocking Electrics

When we visited a property we are planning to purchase, it looked like there is an unsafe electrical system; will a Caldicot survey advise on the electrical system?

When conducting a Caldicot Home Survey a surveyor will remark on the electrics if it is suspected that they are in an unsafe condition. This should include a general examination of the open areas of the wiring as well as things like whether there is an on-peak/off-peak supply or checking the state of a sample of switch gear. Reporting on any evidence of the most recent PIR handled by an electrician will form part of the survey in Caldicot. .

Examining the documents from a test on the condition of the electrical connections conducted by an electrician should be part of the survey.

The Institute of Electrical Engineers (IEE) strongly advise that a Periodic Inspection Report (PIR) is carried out every ten years (5 if letting).
