HomeBuyer Report

Should we select a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a property in Dosthill and which one is the cheapest?

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

If the Dosthill property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any major works, you should you book a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap but it does give comprehensive details of the Dosthill property's state of repair as well as information on defects and maintenance options .

Damage caused by high rainfall

What effect could rain have on a Dosthill building? Can damaged drainage decrease our property's value?

Despite England's reputation for wet weather rain and the effect it can have on Dosthill houses are often overlooked. One indication that rainwater goods are at risk is rotten wooden gutters. In most cases, this is quite easy to remedy, if not neglected, unless they are not unblocked on a regular basis. The damage will steadily get harder to remedy, so do not be tempted to ignore the signs.

Damage resulting from flooding

Does a chartered surveyor check possible flooding?

The Law Society estimate that 2.2m houses are at risk of flooding damage, and home buyers cannot know that insurance against flooding will continue to be available. The Environment Agency maintain a flood warning service, with regular updated risk assessments. The survey report may also, where appropriate, offer advice to limit damage in the event of flooding.Familiarity with characteristics of the local area likely to affect home in Dosthill enables the property surveyor to surmise flooding may be a risk, even if the property has not itself flooded before. Flooding issues will only be raised in Section J of a survey report if the property surveyor observes or has reason to suspect that the home in Dosthill is at risk.

Shocking Electrics

When we were shown the home we intend to move into it looked like there could be corrosion of the wiring. Does a Dosthill survey go into detail on the electrical system?

When carrying out a Dosthill Building Survey the surveyor will typically comment on the electrical system if it is obvious that they are in a dangerous state of repair.

This should include a non invasive check of the superficial sections of the wiring or fusebox on top of concerns such as reporting on the state of repair of the fixed electrical appliances like heaters or verifying the condition of any visible wiring a representative sample of the range of light fittings and switch gear. Inspecting any evidence of the most recent PIR carried out by a suitably qualified electrician will usually form part of the survey in Dosthill.

The Institute of Electrical Engineers strongly advise that a Periodic Inspection Report (PIR) is carried out at least every 10 years (5 if letting). Always seek Dosthill help from a certified electrician try D M Reid , 48 Hartleyburn, Tamworth, B77 4BL .
