HomeBuyer Report

Should we get a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a home in Crewkerne and which would be cheaper?

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

If the Crewkerne property is a flat, or is an older property, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials, you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any major works, it would be better that you opt for a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap but it does offer a more detailed analysis of the Crewkerne property's condition as well as including more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

For more detailed advice you can get an instant Crewkerne Home Survey Quote via our website or call 0800 038 6667 to speak to a member of our team.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

We want to put in an offer on a place in Crewkerne. Is there any brick advice we should be aware of??

Brick-walled buildings in Crewkerne can indicate a range of defects, such as badly applied render. These issues will be mentioned in the report, with directions for remedy. One frequently reported defect is sulphate attack, caused by moisture interacting with sulphates in cement, and will destroy the structural integrity of the wall. For more information, contact a local builder, Steven Firth Bricklayer of 79/79/Bethesda Close, Blackburn, BB2 2NA on 07565 261094.

Crewkerne home purchasers may need to consider that a range of courses arrangements and colours feature in construction throughout Crewkerne, and as such, repairs may be more involved than they appear.

Consider the advice of both the surveyor and a builder or other specialist if potential structural defects arise during the survey.

External walls

In a Crewkerne HomeBuyer Report what are common defects Condition rating 2 impacting 'E4 - Main walls' ?

One example issue could be weak or absent brick wall foundations. The surveyor's report on the condition of the external walls will consider all visible defects. If hidden issues with the walls or foundations are suspected, a more comprehensive structural survey may be advised. Observations on the Damp Proof Course are also reported here. The home buyer report is intended to be easy to read and understand, and avoid potentially unfamiliar technical language. The report employs 'traffic light' ratings of red, amber and green the seriousness of any issues included in the survey. Amber, or condition rating 2, defects will need to be repaired or replaced at some point. This may not be urgent, however. In some cases, an element covered under Section E may be marked as NI, or 'Not inspected'. RICS have mandated a specific format for the HomeBuyer Report to aid the creation of a useful and comprehensive report for both surveyors and home buyers. As a result, some sections may not be relevant to every property, such as reporting on the condition of the roof of a ground floor flat.

Shocking Electrics

When I viewed the house I expect to purchase it appeared that there are doubts as to then safety of the electrical system; will a Homebuyer Report in Crewkerne report on electrical system condition?

When conducting a Crewkerne Building Survey the home surveyor should make a note on the electrics if it is apparent that the electrics are in a hazardous state of repair. This will include a visual check (i.e. no removal of fittings) of the open parts of the wiring as well as concerns such as examining the condition of fixed appliances like storage radiators or checking the condition of a representative sample of light fittings. Verifying the location of the documents from any recent PIR handled by a suitably qualified electrician on the property will usually form part of the survey.

Verifying the existence of any documentation from a test on the condition of the electrical wiring handled by an electrician should usually form part of the Homebuyer report in Crewkerne .

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