HomeBuyer Report

Should I opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a house in Empingham and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey and is essentially the same level of survey.

If the Empingham property is a flat or maisonette, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials, you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out any major works, RICS recommend you go for a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap, but it will give comprehensive details of the Empingham property's condition and it includes information on defects and maintenance options .

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

We are buying in Empingham, and the house's foundations have been built on clay soil. Does a Empingham House Survey discuss soil composition the report? Does the chartered surveyor give maintenance advice?

The content of soil around the foundations of a home will have an impact, with subsidence being a common example. Buyers should be vigilant for signs of clay soil subsidence or heave. Some clay soils are prone to creep, if the top soil and property lie on a slope. Either as a result of erosion or extreme weather, in rare situations, the soil layer can shift without warning, as a landslide, resulting in the structural failure

and collapse of the whole building! A Empingham surveyor will take into account and clay soil related concerns, and advise accordingly.

Gas flame

Will the qualified surveyor look into the safety of the gas supply?

Your will visually inspect any accessible parts of the gas system. This will mean gas related areas such as the condition of the meter at the home, in addition to gas connected fixtures for example - fixed external ventilation hearths. However, the Empingham qualified RICS surveyor will not remove gas fittings and surveyors are not qualified to conduct any tests whatsoever on the system or appliances. Gas is potentially fatal and if there are any concerns about gas, call a gas engineer.

Shocking Electrics

When I was shown the building I am intending to buy, the agent said that there is evidence of an overload of the fuses, does a surveyor report on the general state of the electrical system?

When preparing a Empingham Home Survey a qualified surveyor should usually add detail on the overall electrical system if it appears that the electrics are in a dangerous state. Your surveyor will also issues like inspecting the category of the electrical fittings in bathrooms or checking the condition of any visible wiring a sample of light fittings. Inspecting the documents from a test on the condition of the electrical installations conducted by a suitably qualified electrician will be part of the Homebuyer report in Empingham.

The Institute of Electrical Engineers (IEE) advocate that a Periodic Inspection Report be completed every 10 years (or every 5 if letting out).
