HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to get a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a home in Wickford and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey, although it is basically the same the same.

If the Wickford property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out any works or an extension on the property, RICS advise you choose a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap, however it will provide you with a thorough analysis of the Wickford property's general condition as well as advice on defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

Shocking Electrics

When we viewed the building we intend to buy it appeared that there is deterioration in the wiring and RCD unit; will the surveyor advise on any faults with the electrics?

When conducting a Building Survey in Wickford your RICS surveyor will usually add detail on the condition of the electrics if it looks like the electrics are in a hazardous state of repair. This will include a general examination of open or exposed sections of the wiring or fusebox as well as possible problems relating to things like reporting on the category of the electrical fittings in bathrooms. A check for the documents from the most recent Periodic Inspection Report handled by an electrician on the building should form part of the survey in Wickford. Verifying the location of the documentation from any recent PIR conducted by an electrician will usually be part of the survey in Wickford .

Stone block wall damage

I am intending to put an offer in on a Wickford property built stone. What should we be particularly aware of?

Upkeep costs for stone-built homes in Wickford can be higher than for more standard. Issues which impact the lifespan of stone-built elements are as diverse as the stone varieties themselves. Regular stone describes cut stone, generally forming brick-like courses. These may require less maintenance than more irregularly built walls, but this is heavily dependent on the type of stone used. Stone walls require regular maintenance, such as replacing missing or badly worn stones.

Conservation area

Will there be any considerations I would be advised to be aware of when purchasing a converted house in Wickford in conservation area ?

There are many thousands of designated conservation areas throughout the country which are governed by local authorities. Surveyors in Wickford are required by RICS to possess knowledge of relevant local area factors and the relation they have with the home and its value. Property Prices is, more often than not, higher as a result of them being unspoilt. However many conservation areas have been neglected and are in poor condition e.g. badly maintained and potholed roads and pavements

Surveyors can be expected to note if the property is or might be is designated and Section I of your Homebuyer Report will recommend further investigations are raised by your conveyancer. Unapproved extensions to the property will also be reported in the Wickford survey, however these should be concern for your conveyancer. Harvey Copping and Harrison are a local firm situated at De Burgh House, Basildon, Essex, SS12 0BB should be able to advise. Tel: 01268 733 381
