HomeBuyer Report

Should I select a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a house in Hainault and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, however it is essentially the same.

If the Hainault property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out substantial modifications on the property, it would be better that you select a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap however it does provide you with a more detailed analysis of the Hainault property's condition as well as including advice on defects and maintenance options .

Shocking Electrics

When we visited the period property we are hoping to acquire we think we noticed that there could be corrosion of the wiring; does Hainault Homebuyer Report give details on on the general state of the electrical system?

When preparing a Building Survey in Hainault your RICS surveyor will report on the condition of the electrics if it is suspected that they are in a hazardous condition. Your surveyor is required to report back on things like verifying the state of the fitted appliances like storage heaters or the state of residual circuit breakers (RCD) and/or miniature circuit breakers (MCBs).

Confirming the existence of any evidence of the most recent Periodic Inspection Report carried out by a suitably qualified electrician will form part of the Homebuyer report in Hainault.

Conservatory

For the Hainault HomeBuyer Report, what impact will a Condition rating 2 have on conservatory and porches?

RICS HomeBuyer Reports are transparent, detailed surveys of residential property. As buyers in Hainault are unlikely to be experts in local building techniques and materials themselves, the report is written with as little jargon as possible. Green, orange and red ratings are an indication of to what extent any problems or notable points may negatively impact the property. Amber, or condition rating 2, defects will need to be repaired or replaced at some point. In contrast to more serious, 'red' rated, defects, these issues do not require immediate attention.

Section E7 defects include those affect any porch or conservatory attached to the home. Safety hazards, including floor-level glass and blocked escape routes from upper storey windows will be considered too. Contact between the conservatory skirting and the soil is an example of this.

Roof defects identified during a survey

The vendor warned us that access to the house's roof could be something to worry about, and we expect to budget something for roof maintenance. What will our surveyor in Hainault check when the house is surveyed?

This is frequently addressed by RICS surveyors. A large number of properties can be blighted by roofing problems, such as. From eaves to ceiling joists, all aspects of the roof must be reviewed. Your RICS surveyors may then recommend that some faults need urgent attention.

It may be inconvenient to employ scaffolding to perform repairs, especially in the busy parts of Hainault, but it is a health and safety necessity. A quote for the work could be sought from a reliable roofing specialist in Hainault.
