HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to select a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a home in Mexborough and of the 3, which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same survey.

If the Mexborough property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make an extension, you should you carry out a Building Survey instead. This option is less cheap however it does give you comprehensive details of the Mexborough property's state of repair as well as including an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

Damage resulting from flooding

What's the danger of flooding in Mexborough. Can a property surveyor check for water damage?

The impact of flooding, both in the region of Mexborough and nationwide, is a serious concern for homeowners, and it is not clear that reasonably-priced flooding insurance will be available in years to come. It is easily possible to assess whether a house is susceptible to flooding via any of a number of routes. The Home Buyers Survey may also, where appropriate, offer advice to limit damage in the event of flooding.Familiarity with characteristics of the local area likely to affect property enables the surveyor to surmise flooding may be a risk, even if the property has not itself flooded before. Oral enquiries can sometimes be made of the property owner or occupier, but this information may not be accurate.

The alert level for the River Dearne and its tributaries from Denby Dale to Mexborough, near to Mexborough of 'No warnings', was recently set by the Environment Agency at 12:25 on 28/11/12.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

The Flemish bond walls on this Mexborough property looks in bad shape - what should we do? Is age a factor?

Brick-walled Mexborough flats can indicate considerable issues. An especially severe issue is brick rot, resulting from decades of exposure to condensation or damp at ground level. S M B Ltd should be able to provide an estimate for repair work. Contact them at 4 Rectory Lane, Byfleet, West Byfleet, KT14 7LL or 01932 347179.

Brick-build property can be found across Mexborough, leading to a number of approaches and materials. Contact a specialist for more information if this is of interest.

Shocking Electrics

When we viewed the house we are interested to lease, the agent said that there were damaged electrical sockets, will a Homebuyer Report in Mexborough go into detail on any faults with the electrics?

When conducting a Home Survey in Mexborough the RICS surveyor will typically mention the electrics if it looks like the electrics are in an unsatisfactory condition.

This should include a visual inspection (without removing any fittings) of the open sections of the wiring or fusebox and other things like verifying the nature of any electrical fittings in shower rooms or verifying the condition of a sample of switch gear. A check for the evidence of the most recent Periodic Inspection Report handled by a suitably qualified electrician on the building will usually form part of the survey in Mexborough.

The Institute of Electrical Engineers advocate that a periodic test should be carried out at least every 10 years (or every 5 if renting out).
