Home Buyers Survey in Chertsey

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to select a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a house in Chertsey and which one is cheaper?

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

If the Chertsey property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make major works, RICS advise you choose a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap, however it does offer an in-depth analysis of the Chertsey property's state of repair as well as including advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

Shocking Electrics

When I went to see the unmodernised property I am intending to lease I noticed that there is an old fuse board - does a surveyor write anything on the general state of the electrical system?

When preparing a Homebuyer Report in Chertsey the home surveyor should remark on the state of the electrics if it is suspected that they are in an unsafe condition. This should include a general examination of the superficial areas of the wiring and other concerns such as looking at any outside installations such as power in garages or any garden lighting.

Verifying the existence of any documentation from the most recent Periodic Inspection Report handled by a suitably qualified electrician on the property will be part of the Homebuyer report in Chertsey. A check for the documentation from a test on the condition of the electrical installations conducted by a suitably qualified electrician on the property being surveyed should usually form part of the survey.

Damage caused by high rainfall

Should we investigate gutters? Will the Chertsey property surveyor report on this? Also, if there is damage, will they be troublesome to fix?

I find it odd that this issue is usually overlooked by home buyers.

Signs that drainage are blocked include rusted iron elements, but you may wish to ask your surveyor for more detail. That is not to say that drainage problems should cause you to reconsider a purchase. They are usually a simple matter to fix. Where this is poorly maintained, the damage becomes increasing costly to remedy.

Traditionally built property

My partner and I are buying an older cottage in Chertsey. Will repairs costs be higher?

Some buyers in Chertsey have looked at purchasing a old, characterful home one day. For houses in Chertsey built before the 20th Century, age, however, can create difficulties for an owner. Structures built using traditional methods can be a drain to upkeep. You should consider that specialist knowledge may be needed. .

Construction materials, such as matching stone or wood, may also need to be sourced, particularly in the case of listed property. Built in around 1444, Hardwick Court Farm Barn in Chertsey is an example of a traditional Medieval-period barn.

Other external areas of the property

For a HomeBuyer Report on a Chertsey house or flat what could a an amber light rating mean for 'E9 - Other' ?

Miscellaneous external elements are including here which do not fit into the other categories. Contact your surveyor if you require more information. A conservatory's concrete floor that is cracked or spalled would be reported here, for example. The RICS HomeBuyer Report is designed to be user-friendly, unlike some more complex survey reports. A 'traffic light' system of colour coding is used to confirm the impact on the property individual defects may have. Amber, or condition rating 2, defects will need to be repaired or replaced at some point, but this may not be urgent.
