HomeBuyer Report

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

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey and is effectively the same.

If the Cannock property is a flat, or is an older property, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction, you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any major works, RICS recommend you opt for a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap however it does offer an in-depth analysis of the Cannock property's state of repair in addition to an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

For further advice why not obtain a Cannock House Survey Quote on our website or call us 0800 038 6667 to speak to a member of our team.

Shocking Electrics

When we visited the mid-century home we are meaning to purchase it looked like there is deterioration in the wiring and RCD unit; will a Homebuyer Report in Cannock advise on the electrical system condition?

When conducting a Building Survey in Cannock the RICS surveyor should usually comment on the electrics if it appears that the electrics are in a hazardous state.

This should include a visual inspection of the open parts of the wiring and other things like whether there is an off-peak /on-peak mains supply. A check for the evidence of the most recent Periodic Inspection Report carried out by an electrician should be part of the survey.

Confirming the existence of any documents from a test on the condition of the electrical wiring carried out by a suitably qualified electrician should form part of the survey.

The IEE (Institute of Electrical Engineers) suggest that a PIR be completed every 10 years (or every 5 if letting out). To get nearby advice in Cannock from a certified electrician call Ryles Electrical Services , 6 Maycroft Cl, Hednesford, Cannock, WS12 4SJ .

Damage resulting from flooding

When buying in Cannock, should we be concerned about a flood risk, and will the home buyers survey consider flooding damage, or if the garden have been affected?

Soil-clogged drainage, rain and overflowing waterways could all cause major flooding, and it is not clear that reasonably-priced flooding insurance will be available in years to come. It is strongly recommended that a home is protected, before flooding occurs. Flood water can enter a property through a number of routes, including air bricks, poorly fitted doors and windows, and seepage through external walls.

Preventative measures can include costly but effective solutions e.g. correctly installed window and door frames, the data used to compile third-party flood assessments also takes into account flood defences and historic claims.

Traditionally built property

We are buying a 18th Century gatehouse. What effect will the residence's architecture have on upkeep?

Some buyers in Cannock would be interested in owning a unique or characterful property. Vernacular, or traditional, architecture, however, can occasionally give buyers second thoughts. Cannock houses featuring traditional methods can be a chore to maintain. You should consider that specialist expertise may be needed. Especially for listed property, Materials suitable for the work may be required. This may mean that it is all the more vital that you get a building survey prior to exchanging. Contact the surveyor for more detail.
