HomeBuyer Report

Should I select a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a house in Grasmere and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey and is basically the same the same.

If the Grasmere property is a flat, or is an older property, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any major works, RICS advise you select a Building Survey. This option is less cheap but it does offer a more detailed analysis of the Grasmere property's state of repair and it includes information on defects and maintenance options .

Building Surveys on houses

What are the reasons for getting a full structural survey instead of a HomeBuyer Report when considering a shabby bungalow?

Although now often called Full Structural Surveys buy agents and buyers alike these comprehensive surveys are now entitled Building Surveys If intending to buy a modified house like an unloved Grasmere house, this is the best choice to get a surveyor to do. Shortly after a thorough inspection of the accessible areas of the house, the surveyor's formal report is emailed (pdf format) and posted to the buyer providing thorough and salient insight on the state of repair of the house. There will be certain provisos with any residential survey to be aware of because a local surveyor cannot open up the fabric of the of the Grasmere building for example undoing electrical fittings.

Shocking Electrics

When we were shown the unmodernised property we are hoping to acquire, it looked like there is an unsafe electrical system; will a Homebuyer Report in Grasmere advise the wiring and electrical system?

When conducting a Building Survey in Grasmere the surveyor will usually make a note on the condition of the electrics if it is suspected that they are in an unsafe state. A Surveyor is required to give detail on concerns such as verifying any outside installations such as out houses with a power supply or any water features. Inspecting the evidence of the most recent PIR carried out by an electrician on the building will form part of the Homebuyer report in Grasmere. Reporting on any documentation from a test on the condition of the electrical installations carried out by an electrician should usually form part of the survey in Grasmere .

The IEE advise that a check to confirm whether an electrical installation is in a satisfactory condition be completed every 10 years (or every 5 if letting).

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

Can we get London brick guidelines for upkeep for the Grasmere house we are buying? Does render make a difference?

Brick-constructed apartments in Grasmere demonstrate several benefits, but they can also suffer from considerable issues, such as frost damage. For instance, rapidly deteriorating cement mortar, caused by sulphate attack. This may require outright demolition of the wall, if discovered and should be taken very seriously. Tyler S J Ltd should be able to provide an estimate for repair work. Contact them at 4 Bloomfield Cl, Little Paxton, St. Neots, PE19 6JL or 01480 214820.

Styles of brickwork can range from the relatively common, like Scottish bond, featuring five courses (rows) of long-oriented bricks then one row of short faced bricks, before repeating the pattern, to the rare, such sailor bond is a decorative bond featuring vertically oriented bricks with their widest faces parallel to the wall.

If the Grasmere surveyor does raise concerns about a brick wall defect or structural issue, it may be wise to speak to a builder before completion to assess the extent and cost of the work.
