HomeBuyer Report

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

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey and is effectively the same level of survey.

If the Silverstone property is a flat or maisonette, or is a period property, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any an extension, RICS recommend you go for a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap, however it does give you a more detailed analysis of the Silverstone property's general condition in addition to advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

Shocking Electrics

When I visited the mid-century home I intend to move into it appeared that there are doubts as to then safety of the electrical system, does a surveyor write anything on any faults with the electrics?

When preparing a Home Survey in Silverstone the RICS surveyor will comment on the state of the electrics if it appears that the electrics are in a poor condition. This should include

a general view of any uncovered parts of the wiring in addition to potential areas for concern such as examining the nature of the electrical fittings in shower rooms or checking the condition of any visible wiring a representative sample of switch gear. Inspecting the documentation from any recent PIR handled by an electrician on the property will form part of the survey.

Damage caused by high rainfall

Do we need to look into rainwater goods? We're concerned about replacement costs.

The impact of climate change is widely reported, yet wet weather and the effect it can have on Silverstone buildings are not given the attention it deserves. One indication that rainwater goods are at risk is flaking or efflorescence on external walls, but you may wish to ask your surveyor for more detail. Whether buying in Silverstone or elsewhere, difficult rainwater goods does not necessarily mean that you need to pull out. Such matters are often simple to resolve, if caught early.However, the damage caused, where left untreated, will be expense to remedy and resulting damp and mould could become a health risk.

Traditionally built property

My partner and I are buying a farmhouse. Will upkeep costs be higher?

Vernacular architecture can worry purchasers, and Properties built using traditional methods can be unexpectedly hard to maintain. It is often the case that expert knowledge is necessary. Especially for property in a conservation area, Materials suitable for the work may be required.
