HomeBuyer Report

Should we select a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a home in Newton Abbot and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, although it is basically the same the same comprehensive survey.

If the Newton Abbot property is an apartment, or is a period property, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any alterations, it would be better that you opt for a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap but it does give a thorough analysis of the Newton Abbot property's condition as well as including advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

Shocking Electrics

When we visited the home we are meaning to move into it appeared that there is old wiring - will a Newton Abbot survey advise the general state of the electrical system?

During a Home Survey in Newton Abbot the surveyor should add detail on the electrical system if it is obvious that they are in an unsatisfactory state of repair. Your surveyor is trained to focus on concerns such as checking the nature of the electrical fittings in shower rooms or checking the state of a representative sample of the range of light fittings and switch gear.

Verifying the existence of any documents from a test on the condition of the electrical connections handled by an electrician should form part of the survey in Newton Abbot.

The IEE (Institute of Electrical Engineers) recommend a check to confirm whether an electrical installation is in a satisfactory condition be completed every 10 years (or every 5 if letting out).

Damage caused by high rainfall

How will we know what impact will heavy rainfall have on our new home in Newton Abbot? We're concerned about replacement costs.

As a frequent surveyor of property in the area, I find it strange that the effect which wet conditions has on a house is usually overlooked. If you have visited the house in dry conditions, issues may have been hidden. Signs that drainage are blocked include water pooling below gutters. Fortunately, this is generally easy to resolve.

Traditionally built property

We are purchasing in Newton Abbot. What will we need to pay attention to when purchasing an old building? Will the structure's age be a concern?

Use of traditional methods can often be problematic. Newton Abbot property constructed with traditional methods can be a drain to maintain. It is often the case that expert knowledge is necessary. Especially for a home in one of Newton Abbot's conservation areas, Traditional materials may be required. This may mean it is a good idea to discuss current upkeep needs with the seller.
