HomeBuyer Report

Should I choose a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a property in Horsham and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey and is essentially the same comprehensive survey.

If the Horsham property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make major works on the property, RICS advise you select a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap however it will give you an in-depth analysis of the Horsham property's state of repair as well as including an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

Roof defects identified during a survey

I am going to put in an offer in on a building in Horsham. I am particularly concerned about the state of the roof. What does the home surveyor investigate during the survey?

Horsham residences in otherwise fine condition can be blighted by difficulties with the roof, for example, cracked and loose slates or tiles. From sheeting to parapet walls, all aspects of the roof should be reported on. The are also numerous flat-roofed properties in Horsham, including many apartment blocks. In these cases, the surveyors in Horsham will look for a range of signs, including a poor asphalt covering.

High estimates for roofing jobs (such as a complete replacement) may have scared off some homeowners from carrying out necessary work. In extreme cases, this may be the reason for the sale, so buyers must be vigilant and employ the services of a qualified surveyor before the exchange of contracts. It may be advisable to source an estimate for any work prior to exchange.

However, buyers should endeavour to compare a number of quotes to find the best deal. Contact Asphaltic of 5 Nightingale Rd, Horsham, RH12 2NW on 01403 270640 to request an estimate.

Shocking Electrics

When I was shown the home I am meaning to acquire I noticed that there is an old fuse board , does a surveyor write anything on the general state of the electrical system?

When performing a Horsham Home Buyers Survey your RICS surveyor will remark on the electrical system if it is clear that they are in a dangerous condition.

This should include a visual examination of the superficial sections of the wiring as well as possible problems relating to things like confirming the state of repair of any fitted appliances, e.g. storage radiators or reporting on the condition of a representative sample of light fittings. Inspecting any documents from a test on the condition of the electrical wiring carried out by a suitably qualified electrician should be part of the survey in Horsham.

Verifying the existence of any documentation from the most recent Periodic Inspection Report carried out by an electrician on the property being surveyed should usually be part of the Homebuyer report in Horsham .

The IEE advise that a periodic test should be carried out at least every 10 years (5 if letting out).
