HomeBuyer Report

Should I book a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a home in Poole and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey, although it is effectively the same.

If the Poole property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out any major works, RICS recommend you go for a Building Survey instead. This more detailed survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it does offer a thorough analysis of the Poole property's condition along with advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

Shocking Electrics

When I viewed a property I am meaning to purchase I think we saw that there is evidence of an overload of the fuses - will a Poole survey write anything on the wiring and electrical system?

During a Poole Home Buyers Survey a RICS surveyor will usually remark on the electrics if it is obvious that the electrics are in an unsatisfactory state of repair. This will include an overview or examination of any uncovered sections of the wiring, fusebox etc. as well as possible problems relating to things like checking the category of the electrical fittings in bathrooms or checking the state of a sample of switch gear. Ascertaining the whereabouts of any documents from a test on the condition of the electrical installations carried out by a suitably qualified electrician will form part of the survey.

The Institute of Electrical Engineers (IEE) advise that a PIR is carried out at least every 10 years (or every 5 if letting).

Conservation area

Are there any concerns I should look out for when intending to buy a period property in Poole in Branksome Park conservation area ?

Branksome Park is in a conservation area and has been classified as very bad by English Heritage, with low vulnerability and deteriorating. For more information visit their website. There are 9, 300 of conservation areas in the UK which are designated by the local council. Branksome Park is monitored by Borough of Poole Council at Civic Centre, Poole, Dorset, BH15 2RU - Call 01202 633 633.

Home Buyers Surveys in Poole must have knowledge of relevant local considerations and any connection may have with the building and its value. Property Prices will probably be more than prices outside the area which is down to them being preserved.

RICS surveyors can be expected to report whether the property might be in a conservation area and Section I of a Poole Homebuyer Report will suggest further enquiries are conducted by your conveyancer. Unsympathetic adjustments that do not have Local Authority approval will also be reported in the Poole survey, however these should be concern for your legal adviser.

Timber damage by insect larvae

A local warned us about bugs on the street. How do we investigate further?

Property in Poole are not usually impacted by serious cases of vermin, but buying without any professional advice on the issue is not recommended. Regrettably, vermin can impact a home's worth and affect the health of residents. It is vital that buyers consider this oft-overlooked aspect when making an offer.

Signs may not be evident for weeks or months. For example, irritating cluster flies will hibernate in Autumn, but will return every year without treatment. Treatment for a serious infestation may include removal of infected furniture. As awareness of less common problems grows, more surveys should identify these and advise on remedies.
