HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a property in Wigston and of the 3, which one is the cheapest?

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

If the Wigston property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any alterations on the property, it would be better that you choose a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap, however it does offer exhaustive analysis of the Wigston property's state of repair along with more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Shocking Electrics

When I viewed the period property I want to buy I think we saw that there is old wiring; does a surveyor go into detail on the wiring and fusebox?

When preparing a Home Buyers Survey in Wigston your surveyor will usually make a note on the electrical system if it is obvious that the electrics are in an unsafe state. A Home surveyor will also give detail on things like the state of residual circuit breakers. Verifying the location of the documentation from a test on the condition of the electrical installations carried out by a suitably qualified electrician on the property being surveyed should usually be part of the Homebuyer report in Wigston.

Conservation area

Are there any factors we would need to be wary of when planning to buy a house in Wigston near a conservation area?

There are over 9, 000 official conservation areas throughout the country which are overseen by local authorities. Surveyors in Wigston need to have relevant knowledge of relevant local area issues and the effect may have with the property and its value. The price of property is, more often than not, significantly higher because of conservation areas being in their original state. However many of them are falling into have been neglected and are in a state of neglect e.g. unauthorised alterations to the fronts, roofs and chimneys of buildings

Surveyors are trained to inform you if the property might be in a conservation area and Section I of your Homebuyer Report will advise further investigations are conducted by the conveyancing solicitor. Unsympathetic modifications to the building may also be reported in the Wigston survey, however these should be investigated by the solicitor.

Timber damage by insect larvae

My housemate spotted signs of pests in the closet. Will the Property Survey investigate this?

Infestations can range from the mild and harmless, to the seriously harmful. Unfortunately, the impact to a house and its inhabitants can put your health in danger and affect its value. It is vital that buyers consider this oft-overlooked aspect when making an offer.

Signs may not be evident for weeks or months, for example, silverfish are common in damp kitchens and bathrooms, but only appear at night, and can therefore be difficult to spot. As some pest problems can be very stubborn, knowing the risks, and chance of success before you buy is essential. As awareness of less common problems grows, more surveys should identify these and advise on remedies.
