HomeBuyer Report

Should we opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a property in West Derby and which one would be cheaper?

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

If the West Derby property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any major works, you should you carry out a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap but it will offer comprehensive details of the West Derby property's state of repair as well as more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

Damage resulting from flooding

We are purchasing a property in West Derby, does the chartered surveyor search for flood damage, or whether flooding has affected other houses on the street?

Flooding has blighted the lives of thousands of property owners in West Derby and across the country, and home buyers cannot know that insurance against flooding will continue to be available. The Environment Agency maintain a flood danger alert service, with regular updated risk assessments. Flood water can enter a West Derby home through several routes, including patio doors.

The GroundSure Flood Report is one of several risk screening reports designed to provide an overview of whether a West Derby home lies within an area of potential or previous flood risk. Oral enquiries can sometimes be made of the vendor or agent, but this information may not be accurate.

Shocking Electrics

When I viewed the period property I am interested to buy I think we saw that there is deterioration in the wiring and RCD unit; will the West Derby surveyor write anything on electrical defects?

During a Home Buyers Survey in West Derby a RICS surveyor will typically add detail on the condition of the electrics if it looks like they are in an unsafe state of repair. This will include a by sight examination of the unconcealed parts of the wiring on top of things like examining the external or remote installations such as outbuildings. Looking at any documentation from the most recent Periodic Inspection Report carried out by a suitably qualified electrician should be part of the Homebuyer report in West Derby. Examining the documents from any recent PIR carried out by a suitably qualified electrician should usually be part of the survey.

Damage caused by high rainfall

What impact should heavy rain have on a West Derby building? Will the HomeBuyer Report give details on this?

Rainfall is a fact of life in the UK, however, the impact rain can have on West Derby buildings is rarely paid due attention. If you have investigated the residence on a clear day, problems are unlikely to be visible. Signs that rainwater goods are damaged include damp stains around drainage, and may lead to a damp or flooded cellar. These issues are, generally speaking, straightforward to resolve, if caught early. If poorly maintained, however, the damage will impact both the home's value, and the residents' enjoyment of the property.
