Home Buyers Survey in Allenton

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to book a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a property in Allenton and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey but is effectively the same.

If the Allenton property is a flat, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any works or an extension, RICS recommend you book a Building Survey instead. This survey is less cheap but it will offer a thorough analysis of the Allenton property's state of repair as well as advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

Shocking Electrics

When I went to see a sixties house I am intending to purchase it appeared that there is an old fuse board - will a Allenton survey advise on the electrical system?

When preparing a Building Survey in Allenton your RICS surveyor should mention the state of the electrics if it looks like they are in a poor condition. Your surveyor is trained to provide detail on possible problems relating to things like reporting on the condition of any visible wiring a representative sample of switch gear.

Confirming the existence of any evidence of a test on the condition of the electrical connections carried out by a suitably qualified electrician will usually form part of the survey. Inspecting any documents from a test on the condition of the electrical installations carried out by a suitably qualified electrician will usually be part of the Homebuyer report in Allenton .

The IEE suggest that an electrical check should be carried out at least every 10 years (or every 5 if letting out).

Traditionally built property

What should we look out for when purchasing a house built in around 1770 in Allenton? What consequences will the home's wooden structure have on regular maintenance?

Some purchasers have looked at purchasing a house with personality, like a Tudor home. Older construction methods and materials, however, can be problematic, and Allenton property built with traditional methods can be difficult to repair. You should be aware that specialist expertise may be needed. Traditional materials may also need to be sourced, particularly in the case of Allenton listed buildings. If you plan to make alterations to a period structure, discuss options with your surveyor for more information.
