Shocking Electrics

When we went to see the period property we are planning to move into, it appeared that there is evidence of an overload of the fuses; does Homebuyer Report in Sunbury On Thames go into detail on any faults with the electrics?

When conducting a Home Survey in Sunbury On Thames your RICS surveyor will make a note on the state of the electrics if it is obvious that they are in an unsatisfactory condition.

This should include a non invasive examination of the accessible sections of the wiring, fusebox etc. in addition to areas like checking the state of any fitted appliances, e.g. storage heaters or reporting on the condition of a representative sample of switch gear. Inspecting the documentation from a test on the condition of the electrical wiring handled by an electrician on the property will usually be part of the survey.

The IEE advocate that a Periodic Inspection is carried out every ten years (5 if letting out). For nearby advice from a qualified electrician speak to Quicksilver Contracting , Staines Road West, Sunbury-On-Thames, TW16 7AB .
