HomeBuyer Report

Should we book a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a home in Consett and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey, however it is essentially the same.

If the Consett property is a flat, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out any alterations, you should you opt for a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap however it does offer a more detailed analysis of the Consett property's state of repair along with more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Shocking Electrics

When we saw the unmodernised property we expect to purchase we think we noticed that there is an unsafe electrical system; will a Homebuyer Report in Consett go into detail on the general state of the electrical system?

When carrying out a Consett Building Survey your surveyor should comment on the state of the electrics if it is suspected that they are in a dangerous state of repair. This will include a general look-over of the open areas of the wiring on top of potential areas for concern such as verifying the condition of any fitted appliances e.g. storage heaters or reporting on the condition of a representative sample of switch gear.

Verifying the existence of any documents from a test on the condition of the electrical wiring handled by a suitably qualified electrician on the building should be part of the survey in Consett. Looking at any documentation from the most recent Periodic Inspection Report handled by an electrician on the property will usually be part of the survey.

The IEE advocate an electrical system check need be completed at least every 10 years (or every 5 if renting out). For nearby advice from a certified electrician call Craggs A , 1 Hawick Ct, Stanley, DH9 6XN .

Roof defects identified during a survey

Mould brings up bad memories for us, and we are sensitive to the cost of roof repairs. What will our surveyor in Consett investigate as part of the survey?

This is frequently addressed by building surveyors. Many properties could feature roof maintenance problems. Any part of the roof or loft, such as valley gutters, ought to be checked. The are also numerous flat-roofed properties in Consett, including many apartment blocks. In these cases, the building surveyors will look for a range of signs, including badly installed felting.

The expense of felting a flat roof, or other major roof work, means that some owners put it off for as long as possible. This is a false economy, as such issues can lead to more severe general structural problems. A local contractor with a recommendation from a friend or family member can provide a quote.

Building Surveys on houses

What are the advantages for choosing the full structural survey rather than a HomeBuyer Report?

Structural Surveys don't actually exist anymore as the Building Survey is the new more technical home survey. Choose the Building Survey for the house mentioned. The HomeBuyer Report is appropriate for a non period unmodified house built out of standard construction materials i.e. brick walls and tiled roof.

Be aware that several caveats exist with the survey as a surveyor cannot force or open up the structure of the Consett house for example, or inspect any part that could risk personal injury.
