Home Buyers Survey in Harrold

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to book a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a home in Harrold and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey but is essentially the same comprehensive survey.

If the Harrold property is a flat or maisonette, or is a period property, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make any major works on the Harrold property, RICS advise you commission a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it does offer a thorough analysis of the Harrold property's condition as well as an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

Conservation area

Will there be any concerns we should consider if purchasing a house in Harrold near a conservation area, particularly in relation to house prices?

There are many thousands of conservation areas in England and Wales which are overseen by local councils.

Home Buyers Surveys in Harrold must have relevant knowledge of local considerations and any bearing may have on the home. Property values will be greater as a result of the areas being unspoilt.

Property surveyors will advise if the planned purchase looks like it may be is designated and Section I of the Homebuyer Report will advise suitable questions are raised by your conveyancer. Out of keeping changes that do not have Local Authority approval will also be advised in your survey but these are really more a concern for your lawyer.

Shocking Electrics

When we visited a property we are meaning to acquire we think we noticed that there was some evidence of an overload of the fuses, will a Harrold survey advise on any faults with the electrics?

During a Home Survey in Harrold your RICS surveyor will usually report on the condition of the electrics if it is suspected that the electrics are in an unsatisfactory state of repair. This will include a general view of the superficial areas of the wiring or fusebox in addition to issues like inspecting the category of the electrical fittings in bathrooms or reporting on the condition of a representative sample of light fittings and switch gear. .

Examining the evidence of the most recent PIR carried out by a suitably qualified electrician on the building will usually be part of the survey.

The IEE strongly advise a check to confirm whether an electrical installation is in a satisfactory condition need be completed every ten years (or every 5 if letting).

Damage resulting from flooding

When purchasing in Harrold, should we be uneasy about a flood risk, and will the home buyers survey look for possible flooding?

The lives of many property owners in Harrold and across the UK have been affected by flooding damage, and it is not clear that reasonably-priced flooding insurance will be available in years to come. The Environment Agency maintain a flood danger alert service, with regular updated risk assessments.

Flood water can enter a Harrold home through a number of routes, including air bricks, poorly fitted doors and windows, and seepage through external walls. Less expensive preventative measures include door guards. Flooding issues will only be raised in Section J of a property survey if the residential surveyor observes or has reason to suspect that the Harrold home is at risk.
