HomeBuyer Report

Should we go for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a home in Hethersett and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey but is essentially the same.

If the Hethersett property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make an extension on the property, RICS recommend you select a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap however it will give you a more detailed analysis of the Hethersett property's general condition and it includes more detailed advice on defects , repairs and maintenance options .

For more details you can get an instant Hethersett Survey Quote online or call 0800 038 6667 to speak to our survey team.

Conservation area

Will there be any concerns we need to look out for when planning to buy an extended house in Hethersett in conservation area ?

There are 9, 300 of conservation areas in the UK, responsibility for which lies with the local council. Surveyors in Hethersett are required by RICS to possess local knowledge of relevant local area issues and the connection they have with the home. House prices tends to be enhanced which is down to the areas retaining their original character. However many areas are falling into disrepair e.g. the huge increase in street clutter

Surveyors are trained to tell you whether the building could be within a conservation area and Section I of a Homebuyer Report will suggest suitable questions are conducted as part of the legal process. Unconsented modifications that do not have Local Authority approval may be commented on, however these should be concern for your legal adviser.

Stone block wall damage

We are buying a property with Slate walls. Are there any major problems that we should be aware of?

The cost of repairs for stone-built homes in Hethersett can be higher than for more standard. The properties of a stone can affect wear as much as upkeep or construction. The two main forms of mortared stone wall construction found in Hethersett are regular and irregular.

Dry stone construction is used in garden walls and field boundaries, but is rarely employed for inhabited structures. Choice of stone will impact the lifespan of a structure, for example, slate is far more water-resistant than many other stones. Stone walls require regular maintenance, such as removal of invasive plants, such as ivy.

Shocking Electrics

When I visited the unmodernised property I expect to move into I noticed that there is an unsafe electrical system - will a Hethersett Homebuyer Report give details on on the wiring and fusebox?

When performing a Homebuyer Report in Hethersett your RICS surveyor will usually mention the electrics if it looks like the electrics are in an unsatisfactory condition. He or she is trained to report on potential areas for concern such as examining the category of any electrical fittings in bathrooms.

Confirming the existence of any documents from any recent PIR conducted by an electrician should be part of the survey.

Confirming the existence of any documentation from the most recent PIR carried out by an electrician should form part of the survey.

The Institute of Electrical Engineers (IEE) advise that a PIR is carried out every ten years (or every 5 if letting out). For expert nearby help on all things electrical speak to Frosdick D , 115 Great Melton Rd, Hethersett, Norwich, NR9 3HB .
