HomeBuyer Report

Should we choose a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a house in Wilton and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey but is effectively the same comprehensive survey.

If the Wilton property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any substantial modifications, RICS advise you go for a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap but it will give you a more detailed analysis of the Wilton property's state of repair as well as information on defects and maintenance options .

For more detailed advice you can get a Wilton Homebuyers Survey Quote via our website or call us 0800 038 6667 to speak to our survey team.

Timber damage by insect larvae

We are concerned about vermin. What advice should we get?

Pests like cockroaches may sometimes seem a small, even irrelevant, matter when buying in Wilton.

Unfortunately, the threat posed by these to property is very real, and can seriously reduce the value of a property. It may not be obvious that a property is suffering a severe pest problem, as evidence can be overlooked, the smell of ammonia in or behind cupboards may indicate mice, even if no droppings are found. Treatment for a serious infestation may include chemical treatment. If investigation does uncover a problem, consider speaking to the seller to ask that they deal with the issue prior to exchange. Speak to a pest control specialist, such as Regional Environmental Services, P.O. Box 2105, Salisbury, Wiltshire, SP2 2BU on 0845 053 1662, to discuss remedies.

Shocking Electrics

When I went to see the period property I am planning to purchase, it appeared that there is old wiring - does a Wilton survey report on electrical defects?

When performing a Wilton Homebuyer Report the home surveyor should make a note on the state of the electrics if it is suspected that they are in an unsafe state. This should include a by sight inspection of any uncovered sections of the wiring as well as concerns such as reporting on the category of electrical fittings in shower rooms or checking the state of a representative sample of the range of light fittings and switch gear.

Verifying the existence of any evidence of the most recent Periodic Inspection Report handled by a suitably qualified electrician will be part of the Homebuyer report in Wilton.

The IEE advocate that a check to confirm whether an electrical installation is in a satisfactory condition is carried out every 10 years (or every 5 if letting). For nearby Wilton help on domestic electrical systems try J F Systems , 2 Hazel Cl, Salisbury, SP2 9JJ .

Damage caused by high rainfall

What impact may wet weather have on a Wilton house? Also, if there are issues, will they be inconvenient to fix?

The impact of climate change is widely reported, yet heavy rain and the effect it can have on Wilton houses are not given the attention it deserves by property buyers. If you have visited the residence on a clear day, problems are unlikely to be visible. Signs that drainage systems are damaged include a waterlogged garden. This can lead to warped floorboards or beams.

In most cases, these defects are quite easy to resolve, if maintenance is taken seriously, unless they are disregarded. The damage will steadily get harder to remedy, so do not be tempted to ignore the signs.
