About Us

Home Buyers Survey in South Sutton

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to opt for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a house in South Sutton and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey and is effectively the same.

If the South Sutton property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any substantial modifications, RICS recommend you opt for a Building Survey instead. The Building Survey is less cheap however it will give you a thorough analysis of the South Sutton property's condition as well as information on defects and maintenance options .

Shocking Electrics

When I was shown a property I am meaning to lease, I think we saw that there are doubts as to then safety of the electrical system, does a the surveyor report on the wiring and fusebox?

When carrying out a Home Buyers Survey in South Sutton the home surveyor should usually add detail on the overall electrical system if it is obvious that the electrics are in an unsatisfactory state. This should include a by sight view of open or exposed parts of the wiring as well as possible problems relating to things like verifying the condition of the fixed electrical appliances like storage radiators or checking that the condition of any visible wiring.

Confirming the existence of any documentation from the most recent Periodic Inspection Report carried out by an electrician should usually be part of the survey in South Sutton.

Asbestos roof tiles

A builder friend commented that there is a concern of an asbestos fireplace in existence at the flat. What are the issues with asbestos, are there any health risks and does the HomeBuyer report cover this?

Asbestos is a carcinogenic material. Chrysotile (White), Amosite (Brown) and Crocidolite (Blue) are often building materials e.g. asbestos blocks.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has characteristic fire retarding properties, it may be found in asbestos packing in stud walls.

All forms are ultimately pernicious and might lead to lung cancer or scarring of the lung if inhaled over sustained periods. Care should be taken if asbestos is discovered on no account to displace it. Professional advice should be sought as soon as possible.

Surveyors cannot verify the presence of asbestos on a survey. They will note the risk of asbestos risks and will advise accordingly.

Stone block wall damage

Do stone-walled houses in South Sutton generate lots of maintenance costs for owners? What problems should we be aware of?

Britain's range of geology has encouraged the use of many varieties of stone, from Wroxton Limestone to Swaledale Fossil Limestone. Defects affecting stone-built homes in South Sutton can vary, mould being relatively common. Irregular stone walls are found throughout the county, and can require more care and attention that regular, brick-like stone walls due greater impact the weather can have on exposed mortar. In addition, lime mortar may feature in the building's construction. Stone walls require regular maintenance, such as careful removal of nearby trees and plants. Be careful not to pull these up by the roots, as they could already be intertwined with the wall's foundations, which will cause more damage.

Ask your surveyor for clarification if you are in doubt as to likely maintenance, particularly if the house in question is listed or located in a conservation area.

Traditionally built property

I am buying a 18th Century warehouse conversion. Will the age of the property be an issue?

Some purchasers have looked at purchasing a home with character. Use of traditional methods, however, can be a cause of concern for would-be buyers, and South Sutton property built with traditional methods can be surprisingly expensive to maintain. It is often the case that specialist knowledge is necessary. Traditional building materials may also need to be sourced, particularly in the case of Grade I listed property. This may mean it is a good idea to discuss current upkeep needs with the seller. Speak to the chartered surveyor for more detail.
