HomeBuyer Report

Should we have a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a property in Wadhurst and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey and is basically the same the same.

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

If you intend to do any alterations on the property, you should you select a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it does give you exhaustive analysis of the Wadhurst property's general condition as well as advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Shocking Electrics

When we visited the mid-century home we are hoping to lease, it appeared that there might be an overload of the fuses/fusebox; does a surveyor go into detail on the wiring and fusebox?

When preparing a Wadhurst Home Buyers Survey a RICS surveyor will usually mention the electrics if it is suspected that the electrics are in a hazardous state of repair. This should include a general look-over of the accessible parts of the wiring on top of issues like reporting on the condition of any visible wiring a representative sample of switch gear. Ascertaining the whereabouts of any documentation from a test on the condition of the electrical wiring handled by an electrician should usually be part of the Homebuyer report in Wadhurst. .

Examining the documentation from a test on the condition of the electrical wiring conducted by an electrician will usually be part of the survey.

Roof defects identified during a survey

We are buying a loft-conversion in Wadhurst - What should we do about roof repairs?

Properties in Wadhurst in good condition could unfortunately be experiencing damage to the roof. From tie beams to fascias, all aspects of the roof must be reviewed, and any defects addressed as soon as possible.

Maintenance need not always be costly, but they should be budgeted for carefully. A building survey prior to exchange is highly recommended, so that you fully understand what expenses you will be facing. It may be advisable to source an estimate for any work prior to exchange. Call Weatherall Roofing Ltd of 19 The Hurst, Tunbridge Wells, TN2 3HX on 01892 535478 for an estimate.

Substandard guttering

On the HomeBuyer Report, what might 'E3 - Rainwater pipes and gutters' include?

RICS created the HomeBuyer Report to give house purchasers a clear and easy to read report on the condition of the home they plan to buy. As buyers in Wadhurst are unlikely to be experts in local building techniques and materials themselves, the report is written with as little jargon as possible. Green, orange and red ratings are an indication of how serious the issues which the surveyor has discovered actually are. Parts of the report which do not apply to the specific Wadhurst property being surveyed will be indicated with a 'NI', or 'not inspected'. If a Wadhurst property does not have a porch or conservatory, for example, these aspects of the report will be omitted. In Wadhurst, an example may be leaking or clogged gutters. The drainage system is inspected visually, where access is possible. This section does not include blocked drains below ground.
