HomeBuyer Report

Should we book a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a home in Worlds End and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey, although it is effectively the same survey.

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

If you are thinking about whether to do any alterations, you should you go for a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it does offer comprehensive details of the Worlds End property's general condition in addition to information on defects and maintenance options .

If in doubt why not get a Worlds End Homebuyers Survey Quote on our website or call us 0800 038 6667 to speak to one of our advisers.

Shocking Electrics

When we visited the thirties house we are interested to lease, it looked like there are doubts as to then safety of the electrical system; does Worlds End survey write anything on the general state of the electrical system?

When carrying out a Home Buyers Survey in Worlds End the RICS surveyor should usually mention the condition of the electrics if it is clear that the electrics are in a poor state of repair. The RICS surveyor should also provide detail on issues like the state of residual circuit breakers (RCD) and/or miniature circuit breakers (MCBs).

Confirming the existence of any documents from a test on the condition of the electrical installations handled by a suitably qualified electrician should usually be part of the Homebuyer report in Worlds End.

Damage caused by high rainfall

Is heavy rainfall an issue in Worlds End? If there are issues, will they be costly to fix?

Rainfall is a fact of life in the UK, however, the effect which high levels of rainfall has on your home is often overlooked.

Signs that drainage are damaged include rotten wooden gutters. That is not to say that drainage problems should cause you to reconsider a purchase. They are usually a simple matter to remedy, if not neglected. However, if the drains are not cared for, the resulting damage can lower the value of the property and become increasing harder to repair. In the worst case scenario, deterioration of a building's foundations can become fatal to its structural integrity, risking collapse.

Building Surveys on houses

Should I do a full structural survey if buying a un-loved thirties cottage in Worlds End over a HomeBuyer Report?

They are often still referred to as the Full Structural Survey, it is no longer available and this most technical survey has been superseded by the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors and the proper name is now the Building Survey. Our advice would be to choose a Building Survey for the house you are planning to buy. A HomeBuyer Report is sufficient if investigating a mid century or later unmodified Worlds End house made out of normal construction materials and methods. Bear in mind that some provisos exist with any survey insofar as a qualified RICS surveyor cannot open up the structure of the house or inspect where doing so could cause damage to the house.
