HomeBuyer Report

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

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey, however it is essentially the same.

If the Downham Market property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials, you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any an extension, it would be better that you go for a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it does offer exhaustive analysis of the Downham Market property's state of repair along with information on defects as well as maintenance options .

Traditionally built property

I am buying a coast house in Downham Market. Will the property's age be a concern?

Some buyers in Downham Market hope to own a home with character. Older construction methods and materials, however, can often be problematic. Houses constructed with traditional or "vernacular" techniques can be costly to upkeep. You should consider that specialist expertise may be needed, and it could also be necessary to find Traditional building materials, which could make obtaining a full structural or building survey essential.

Shocking Electrics

When I was shown the unmodernised property I want to move into, it looked like there was no RCD on the fuse board ; will a Downham Market Homebuyer Report give details on on electrical defects?

When preparing a Downham Market Building Survey the home surveyor should make a note on the electrical system if it appears that they are in an unsatisfactory state of repair. This will include a by sight (i.e. without undoing fittings) inspection look-over of the superficial parts of the wiring as well as areas e.g. ascertaining the condition of any fixed electrical appliances such as electric showers.

Confirming the existence of any documents from the most recent PIR carried out by a suitably qualified electrician will usually form part of the Homebuyer report in Downham Market. Verifying the location of the documents from the most recent Periodic Inspection Report conducted by a suitably qualified electrician on the property being surveyed should usually form part of the Homebuyer report in Downham Market .

Timber damage by insect larvae

There may be insects at the Downham Market home we're buying, but we are not certain. Should we get a surveyor?

Scare stories about house infestations are plentiful, it is tempting to treat signs of pests such as carpet beetle larvae as minor annoyances. It may not be obvious that a house is suffering a severe pest problem, as evidence can be overlooked. As an example, skin irritation or spots of blood on bedsheets may indicate the presence of bed bugs. Treatment for a serious infestation may include use of poison or removal or excision of affected timber. Rather than pulling out, it may be possible to agree a reduction in the purchase price to cover the cost of remedy.
