HomeBuyer Report

Should we book a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a house in Furzedown and which would be the cheapest?

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

If the Furzedown property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction, you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out significant alterations, RICS advise you commission a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap, however it does offer exhaustive analysis of the Furzedown property's general condition in addition to advice on defects and maintenance options .

Shocking Electrics

When we visited the unmodernised property we are interested to lease, the agent said that there might be an overload of the fuses/fusebox, does a Furzedown survey report on the electrics?

During a Homebuyer Report in Furzedown your surveyor should add detail on the electrical system if it is obvious that they are in a poor condition. This will include a general check of the superficial parts of the wiring or fusebox as well as issues like inspecting the state of any fitted appliances like storage heaters or reporting on the condition of a representative sample of switch gear. A check for the documents from the most recent Periodic Inspection Report conducted by a suitably qualified electrician will usually be part of the survey.

The Institute of Electrical Engineers (IEE) recommend an electrical system check need be completed every 10 years (or every 5 if renting out).

House Prices

Is £248, 396 within the right sort of area price to buy a property in CR4 for and what things does the Furzedown qualified surveyor consider during a valuation ?

Traditionally built property

We are purchasing in Furzedown. What will we need to bear in mind when purchasing an older property? What impact will the cruck frame have on upkeep?

Vernacular, or traditional, architecture can worry purchasers. Properties employing traditional or "vernacular" techniques can be costly to upkeep. It is often the case that expert knowledge is necessary. Traditional building materials may also need to be sourced. This can be a good opportunity to discuss lowering the purchase price to cover repair costs. Discuss this with the Furzedown surveyor for more detail.
