Home Buyers Survey in Barton Le Clay

HomeBuyer Report

Should I choose a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a property in Barton Le Clay and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, however it is basically the same the same level of survey.

If the Barton Le Clay property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials, then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any alterations, you should you choose a Building Survey instead. This option is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it does give you exhaustive analysis of the Barton Le Clay property's general condition and it includes information on defects as well as maintenance options .

Shocking Electrics

When we went to see the period property we are meaning to move into We noticed that there might be an overload of the fuses/fusebox - does a Homebuyer Report in Barton Le Clay write anything on electrical system condition?

When performing a Barton Le Clay Homebuyer Report a RICS surveyor will usually mention the state of the electrics if it looks like they are in a dangerous state. A Home surveyor is expected to report on potential areas for concern such as examining the condition of any fitted appliances, e.g. storage heaters or where to find the fuse board .

Confirming the existence of any documents from the most recent Periodic Inspection Report handled by a suitably qualified electrician will usually form part of the survey in Barton Le Clay.

Building Surveys on houses

What are the reasons for conducting the full structural survey rather than a HomeBuyer Report when considering a un-loved bungalow?

Full Structural Surveys are now defunct as a new more technical survey which has been entitled the Building Survey, is now offered by surveyors. Opt for a Building Survey if you are considering the property mentioned. A HomeBuyer Report will suffice if investigating a 60 year old or less unmodified Barton Le Clay property of typical construction materials. Be aware that certain limitations exist with any survey as a surveyor cannot force or open up the structure of the property or survey where hatches are over 3m above ground.

Damage caused by high rainfall

What effect should high levels of rainfall have on a Barton Le Clay property? Can damaged gutters decrease our property's value?

Regular rainfall is common in Barton Le Clay and across the country, but the impact wet weather can have on a structure is usually overlooked by buyers. Signs that downspouts are damaged include mildew or damp in the roof. This can lead to a damp or flooded cellar.

In most cases, guttering issues are generally easy to remedy. However, if the drains are left untreated, the resulting damage can lower the value of the property and become increasing harder to repair.

Timber damage by insect larvae

There may be vermin at the Barton Le Clay home we're buying, but we are not certain. What can we do?

Questions regarding the infestation of a Barton Le Clay home may not be raised during the conveyancing. An affected home may not always be easy to identify, for example, cockroaches are nocturnal, and challenging to eradicate. Species common to the UK, such as the German Cockroach, are small, and breed rapidly in moist conditions. This makes them both hard to spot, and to treat successfully. Remedies to bug or other pest issues can include removal of infected furniture. If you strongly suspect an issue with moths, or any pest, speak to your home surveyor

Chimney stacks

On the HomeBuyer Report what impact can a Condition Rating 1 have on 'E1 - Chimney stacks' ?

These elements are reviewed visually from the ground as necessary. No drip edge on the chimney cap is one example. A rating of 'green', or 1, means that the element of the property being investigated is in good condition. Nevertheless, the surveyor may still recommend that regular upkeep is carried out. The format of the RICS HomeBuyer Report is clear and easy to read. As buyers in Barton Le Clay are unlikely to be experts in local building techniques and materials themselves, the report is written with as little jargon as possible. The report employs 'traffic light' ratings of red, amber and green how serious the issues which the surveyor has discovered actually are.
