HomeBuyer Report

Should we have a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a house in Nailsworth and which would be the cheapest?

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

If the Nailsworth property is a flat or maisonette, or is a period property, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make any major works, RICS recommend you book a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap however it will give you comprehensive details of the Nailsworth property's condition along with an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

If in doubt why not get a Nailsworth House Survey Quote on our site or call us 0800 038 6667 to speak to our survey team.

Shocking Electrics

When I was shown the period property I expect to move into it looked like there could be corrosion of the wiring - does a Homebuyer Report in Nailsworth go into detail on the general state of the electrical system?

When conducting a Building Survey in Nailsworth the surveyor will typically make a note on the condition of the electrics if it is suspected that the electrics are in a dangerous condition. This will include a general look-over of open or exposed areas of the wiring or fusebox in addition to things, for example inspecting the state of any fitted appliances e.g. storage radiators or checking the condition of a representative sample of the range of light fittings and switch gear. .

Examining the documents from the most recent PIR carried out by an electrician will usually be part of the survey.

The Institute of Electrical Engineers (IEE) suggest that a Periodic Inspection is carried out at least every 10 years (5 if renting out).

Damage caused by high rainfall

What effect can rain have on a Nailsworth property? If there is work that needs to be done, will they be troublesome to fix?

Regular rainfall is common in Nailsworth and across the country, but rain and the effect it can have on buildings in Nailsworth are rarely considered properly by property buyers. If you have only visited the house in good weather, obvious defects may be harder to find.

Signs that drainage are blocked include spalling masonry. This can lead to a damp or flooded cellar.

These issues are, generally speaking, straightforward to repair fairly cheaply.

Traditionally built property

We are purchasing in Nailsworth. What will we need to pay attention to when purchasing a building constructed in 1760? Will the age of the house be an issue?

Vernacular, or traditional, architecture can create issues for homeowners. Buildings built with traditional or "vernacular" techniques can be surprisingly expensive to maintain. You should be aware that expert knowledge may be needed. Especially for Nailsworth listed buildings, Traditional building materials may be required. This may make the final cost hard to predict. Contact the RICS surveyor for more detail.
