HomeBuyer Report

Should we select a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a property in Yelverton and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, although it is basically the same the same level of survey.

If the Yelverton property is a flat or maisonette, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out major works on the Yelverton property, RICS recommend you select a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it does give exhaustive analysis of the Yelverton property's state of repair in addition to information on defects as well as maintenance options .

Shocking Electrics

When we were shown the mid-century home we are meaning to move into We noticed that there might be an overload of the fuses/fusebox; does Homebuyer Report in Yelverton write anything on any faults with the electrics?

When performing a Yelverton Home Buyers Survey the RICS surveyor should usually mention the condition of the electrics if it is suspected that they are in a poor state of repair. A Chartered surveyor is required to give detail on concerns such as ascertaining the condition of any fixed electrical appliances such as electric showers or verifying the condition of any visible wiring a representative sample of the range of light fittings and switch gear. Verifying the location of the evidence of a test on the condition of the electrical connections conducted by an electrician will be part of the survey in Yelverton.

The IEE (Institute of Electrical Engineers) strongly advise a PIR should be carried out every 10 years (or every 5 if renting out). For expert local advice on electrical systems - SRM Electrical , 14 Boundary Rd, Dousland, Yelverton, PL20 6NQ .

Conservatory

On the HomeBuyer Report what effect will a an amber light rating have on 'E7 - Conservatory and porches' ?

E7 elements are visually inspected. Safety hazards, including floor-level glass and blocked escape routes from upper storey windows will be considered too. Missing railings is an example.

RICS HomeBuyer Reports are transparent, detailed surveys of residential property. As buyers in Yelverton are unlikely to be experts in local building techniques and materials themselves, the report is written with as little jargon as possible. The report employs 'traffic light' ratings of red, amber and green the impact on the property individual defects may have. Defects which need some attention are rated 'amber' or condition rating 2. In contrast to more serious, 'red' rated, defects, these issues do not require immediate attention.

Damage resulting from flooding

Will our Yelverton residential surveyor consider flooding?

It is estimated that over two million residences are at risk of flood damage, and insurance premiums. can be significantly affected for residences in flood-risk areas. Your RICS surveyor may use several methods to determine if the residence in question is in danger. Flood water can enter a home through a number of routes, including air bricks, poorly fitted doors and windows, and seepage through external walls. An awareness of characteristics of the Yelverton area likely to affect the home also enables the surveyor to advise flooding may be a risk. The surveyor may ask the seller if the home has previously flooded. Note that the response to such enquires should not be exclusively relied upon.
