HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to have a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a property in Romsey and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey, although it is effectively the same.

If the Romsey property is an apartment, or is a period property, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any works or an extension on the property, RICS recommend you choose a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it will offer an in-depth analysis of the Romsey property's state of repair as well as including advice on defects , repairs as well as maintenance options .

Shocking Electrics

When we saw the period property we are interested to acquire we think we noticed that there might be an overload of the fuses/fusebox - does a the surveyor go into detail on electrical system condition?

When conducting a Romsey Home Buyers Survey a qualified surveyor should usually report on the overall electrical system if it is obvious that they are in an unsafe condition.

This should include a non invasive examination of the open areas of the wiring, fusebox etc. on top of areas e.g. making sure that supplementary bonding is in the usual place. Looking at any documentation from the most recent Periodic Inspection Report handled by an electrician should usually form

part of the survey. Looking at any evidence of the most recent Periodic Inspection Report conducted by a suitably qualified electrician on the property being surveyed should form part of the survey.

The Institute of Electrical Engineers (IEE) strongly advise that a Periodic Inspection need be completed at least every 10 years (or every 5 if renting out).

Gas flame

Does a surveyor give details on the safety of the gas installations?

Your local surveyor will visually inspect any accessible parts of the system. The surveyor will look at whether the mains is connected where relevant, in addition to gas related fixtures, for instance associated asbestos. Fittings or covers won't actually be taken off. Of course, gas can be hazardous, should you have any concerns about gas, call a gas engineer.

The regulations require that all landlords have to commission appliance and installation inspections annually. Non compliance penalties are severe .

Damaged Render

What sort of thing will the Romsey Surveyor look for on a smooth stucco semi detached home in Romsey which I am thinking of purchasing.

Stucco (sometimes called pargetting) is really a smooth and flat solid render. Normally stucco render is layered over brick hardens to a smooth and even finish. The coating is highly aesthetic and is/was was often applied to Regency buildings. Sometimes it can contain lime in it as well as a plastic under mesh to help stop cracks. it can be problematic and Surveyors can highlight potentially expensive to remedy problems for instance trapped moisture resulting in the surface breaking. Other potential problems may involve attack from salts sucked out of underlying brickwork. Remedying problems may be dear as the skills are getting rarer.
