HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to choose a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a home in Plasmarl and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey but is essentially the same survey.

If the Plasmarl property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out any works or an extension, you should you choose a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap, but it does provide you with exhaustive analysis of the Plasmarl property's condition along with advice on structural defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

Chimney stacks

In a Plasmarl HomeBuyer Report, what will 'E1 - Chimney stacks' refer to?

The RICS HomeBuyer Report is designed to be user-friendly. As buyers in Plasmarl are unlikely to be experts in local building techniques and materials themselves, the report is written with as little jargon as possible. Three colour coded ratings give an understanding of the severity of any defects or points of interest included in the report. Not inspected' is used to indicate those subsections of Section E which do not apply to the house or flat. Irrelevant subsections of the HomeBuyer Report, like an assessment of a conservatory where the home in question does not have one, are disregarded.

Possible defects are inspected visually from the ground if the roof is difficult to access. A chimney cap which is obstructed, loose or missing (or even an incorrect type for the flue), for example, is included in Section E.

Shocking Electrics

When I went to see a sixties house I intend to buy I noticed that there was no RCD on the fuse board ; does the Plasmarl surveyor report on the wiring and fusebox?

When conducting a Home Survey in Plasmarl a qualified surveyor should usually comment on the state of the electrics if it appears that they are in a less than satisfactory state of repair. A professional surveyor will also report back on things like the location of the meter or consumer unit. A check for the documents from a test on the condition of the electrical wiring carried out by a suitably qualified electrician on the property should usually be part of the survey. Verifying the location of the documents from a test on the condition of the electrical connections handled by an electrician should be part of the survey.

The IEE advocate a periodic test need be completed every 10 years (or every 5 if letting out).

Damage caused by high rainfall

Is it advisable to investigate guttering?

Climate change is regularly in the news. However this issue is not given enough thought by house purchasers. For example, flaking or efflorescence on external walls could mean that the drainage systems are blocked. Blocked rainwater goods can result in water damage.

Whether buying in Plasmarl or elsewhere, difficult drainage systems do not necessarily mean that you need to pull out. Such matters are often simple to repair fairly cheaply.
