About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Bishops Cleeve

HomeBuyer Report

Should we go for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a house in Bishops Cleeve and which would be the cheapest?

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

If the Bishops Cleeve property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make any works or an extension, RICS advise you choose a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap but it will give comprehensive details of the Bishops Cleeve property's state of repair as well as including advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Building Surveys on apartments

Is it the right choice to opt for a full structural survey prior to acquiring a shabby thirties mansion apartment in Bishops Cleeve?

The Building Survey has now superseded the Full Structural Survey following its reclassification a while ago by the RICS. Opt for the Building Survey for this house. The HomeBuyer Report is appropriate for a non period unmodified Bishops Cleeve property built out of conventional construction materials and methods.

Shocking Electrics

When we went to see a property we intend to acquire, the agent said that there is evidence of an overload of the fuses - does a Bishops Cleeve survey advise the general state of the electrical system?

During a Building Survey in Bishops Cleeve a surveyor should usually make a note on the electrics if it appears that they are in an unsafe condition. This will include a non invasive inspection of the accessible areas of the wiring and other issues like examining the condition of fitted electrical appliances, e.g. electric showers or checking the state of a sample of switch gear.

Confirming the existence of any evidence of a test on the condition of the electrical wiring conducted by a suitably qualified electrician on the property being surveyed should be part of the survey.

The Institute of Electrical Engineers strongly advise a periodic test should be carried out every 10 years (5 if letting out).
