HomeBuyer Report

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

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same level of survey.

If the Wootton property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make significant alterations, it would be better that you carry out a Building Survey instead. This option is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it does offer a thorough analysis of the Wootton property's general condition along with more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

We need brick wall maintenance advice, can a Wootton property surveyor help? Does the age of the property matter?

Brick-built Wootton structures demonstrate several benefits compared to other building materials. Unfortunately, they also be affected by a number of issues, from moisture damage to signs of movement. For example, wall tie failure. This occurs when ties supporting old cavity walls rust, leading to horizontal cracks and separation of the internal and eternal leaves of the wall and may require immediate attention. Contact Stuart Adam for a repairs estimate at 07836 771640 or 19 Webb La, Birmingham, B28 0EB.

Wootton home purchasers may need to consider that broad range of techniques can be found across the UK. One example is Scottish

bond, featuring five courses (rows) of long-oriented bricks then one row of short faced bricks, before repeating the pattern. The advice of a brickwork specialist should be sought before attempting repairs.

Shocking Electrics

When we viewed the home we expect to move into we think we noticed that there is an old fuse board ; will a Homebuyer Report in Wootton report on electrical defects?

When carrying out a Home Buyers Survey in Wootton the RICS surveyor will typically add detail on the condition of the electrics if it looks like the electrics are in an unsafe state. Your surveyor is trained to give detail on potential areas for concern such as verifying the state of the fixed electrical appliances e.g. storage radiators.

Confirming the existence of any documents from a test on the condition of the electrical installations carried out by an electrician on the property being surveyed will usually be part of the survey. Ascertaining the whereabouts of any documents from the most recent PIR conducted by an electrician on the property being surveyed should usually form part of the survey.

The IEE advise a PIR should be carried out every 10 years (5 if letting).

Traditionally built property

We are purchasing in Wootton. What will we need to consider when purchasing an older property? What impact will the structure have on upkeep?

The age of a structure can sometimes be an issue. Homes showcasing traditional methods can be challenging to repair. It is often the case that specialist knowledge is necessary. Traditional building materials may also need to be sourced. Contact the chartered surveyor for more detail.
