HomeBuyer Report

Should I choose a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a house in Delabole and which is the cheapest?

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

If the Delabole property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make any works or an extension on the Delabole property, RICS recommend you choose a Building Survey instead. The Building Survey is less cheap, but it does provide you with a more detailed analysis of the Delabole property's condition as well as an opinion on defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

Shocking Electrics

When I visited the home I want to acquire it appeared that there was no RCD on the fuse board , does a Delabole survey advise the wiring and fusebox?

When carrying out a Homebuyer Report in Delabole your RICS surveyor should usually report on the condition of the electrics if it is apparent that the electrics are in a poor condition. The RICS surveyor should also provide detail on things like examining the condition of fitted electrical appliances such as storage radiators or checking the state of a sample of switch gear. Reporting on any documentation from the most recent Periodic Inspection Report handled by an electrician will usually be part of the survey.

The Institute of Electrical Engineers (IEE) suggest an electrical system check is carried out at least every 10 years (5 if letting).

Gas flame

Will a Delabole surveyor go into detail on the condition or the safety of the gas appliances?

Your qualified RICS surveyor will visually survey any easily accessible parts of the system. The surveyor will look at gas heaters (also LPG/oil/electric) where relevant, as well as gas affiliated appliances, for instance balanced flues (where immediately extended from appliance/external element).. However, the Delabole local surveyor won't actually remove fittings and will not run any tests on the functionality of the gas system. Of course, gas can be unsafe, should you have any worries about gas of any type, call a gas safe engineer.

House Prices

There is a property in PL33 on for £213, 272. What will a surveyor allow for when estimating house prices in Delabole ?

In order for home buyers to get a professional house valuation is to get a Homebuyer Report which includes a professional valuation as a core component. Your chartered surveyor will be accredited under the Valuer Registration Scheme.
