HomeBuyer Report

Should we book a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a house in Gunnislake and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey, although it is basically the same the same level of survey.

If the Gunnislake property is a flat or maisonette, or is over 100 years old, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out an extension, it would be better that you book a Building Survey instead. The Building Survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it will offer comprehensive details of the Gunnislake property's general condition as well as advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

Conservatory

On a Gunnislake HomeBuyer Report can you give some examples of Condition rating 3 defects impacting 'E7 - Conservatory and porches' ?

One example would be steps that spring or sag when used. Porches, conservatories and similar elements of the property's construction are included here. Building regulations and issues relating to correct planning approval are considered (e.g. is it a conservatory, an extension, or a 'sun room'?) will also be mentioned in the report. Condition rating three is used to highlight very serious issues. These can include dangers such as the suspected presence of asbestos, or extensive structural damage. RICS HomeBuyer Reports are transparent, detailed surveys of residential property, unlike some more complex survey reports. Colour coded ratings are used to communicate the seriousness of any issues included in the survey.

Shocking Electrics

When I viewed the home I am meaning to acquire, it appeared that there could be corrosion of the wiring. Will a Gunnislake survey report on the electrical system?

During a Gunnislake Homebuyer Report the surveyor should usually comment on the overall electrical system if it looks like the electrics are in a dangerous condition. A Surveyor should also provide detail on potential areas for concern such as verifying the condition of any fitted appliances like water heaters. Looking at any documentation from a test on the condition of the electrical wiring conducted by a suitably qualified electrician should be part of the survey. A check for the documents from a test on the condition of the electrical connections conducted by an electrician on the building should usually form part of the survey in Gunnislake .

The IEE advise that a Periodic Inspection Report (PIR) be conducted at least every 10 years (5 if letting). We recommend you always get Gunnislake help on all things electrical - GJS Electrical Contractors , 1 Pine View, Gunnislake, PL18 9JF .

Traditionally built property

My partner and I are purchasing a dovecot in Gunnislake. Will the age of the structure be a problem?

Many buyers would be interested in owning property with real personality. Use of traditional methods, however, can sometimes be an issue. Gunnislake property constructed with traditional or "vernacular" techniques can be unexpectedly hard to maintain. It is often the case that specialist expertise is necessary. Materials suitable for the work may also need to be sourced, particularly in the case of a home in one of Gunnislake's conservation areas. This may make the final cost hard to predict. Mention this to your RICS surveyor for more information.
