Home Buyers Survey in Eye

HomeBuyer Report

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

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey, although it is effectively the same comprehensive survey.

If the Eye property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any alterations, RICS advise you select a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap but it will provide you with a thorough analysis of the Eye property's condition as well as more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Traditionally built property

What should we consider when purchasing older property in Eye? Will regular maintenance costs be higher?

Many buyers in Eye plan to buy a home with character. Vernacular, or traditional, architecture, however, can create issues for homeowners. Property constructed with traditional or "vernacular" techniques can be unexpectedly hard to upkeep. You should consider that specialist expertise may be needed. Materials suitable for the work may also need to be sourced, particularly in the case of listed property. Erected between 1446 and 1574, Church Road, Church of St Peter and St Paul, belfry floor in Eye is a traditional church of the time.

Shocking Electrics

When we went to see the building we are interested to purchase, it appeared that there is old wiring. Will a Homebuyer Report in Eye advise on the electrical system?

When conducting a Eye Home Buyers Survey a surveyor will usually make a note on the overall electrical system if it is suspected that they are in an unsatisfactory state.

This should include a non invasive inspection (without removing any fittings) of exposed areas of the wiring, fusebox etc. in addition to concerns such as examining the condition of any fitted appliances, for example electric showers or the whereabouts of the meter. Ascertaining the whereabouts of any documentation from any recent PIR conducted by an electrician will form part of the survey.

Asbestos roof tiles

The estate agent stated there might be asbestos pipe lagging in existence at the house. What are the issues with asbestos, are there any health risks and does the HomeBuyer report cover this?

Asbestos is a noxious material. Some types were commonly found in the building materials for example fireplace. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has a range of useful characteristic heat resistance properties, it may be found in fire doors. Technically all forms are deadly and may lead to lung cancer or scarring of the lung following prolonged exposure.

Care should be taken if asbestos is discovered on no account to disturb the asbestos and expert advice must be taken as soon as possible. Surveyors will not verify the presence of asbestos as part of the survey. Your surveyor will note the risk of asbestos and will recommend relevant tests.

Timber damage by insect larvae

We are buying in Eye, and think we saw signs of bugs in the kitchen. Should we get a property surveyor?

Pests like vermin may sometimes seem a small, even irrelevant, matter when buying in Eye. This danger should be taken seriously. It is vital that buyers consider this oft-overlooked aspect when making an offer.

Signs may not be evident for weeks or months. As an example, cluster, or swarming flies, are often found in lofts and can be a serious, seasonal annoyance if not treated. Remedies to an infestation can include professional cleaning or destruction of tainted materials.

English Heritage

We are planning to purchase a home close to Barn At Rook Hall , will this affect the property's value?

Examples of other local monuments of interest are Moated Site At Cranley Hall, Moated Site At Flimworth Hall and Moated Site At Gate Farm.. A surveyor will include all local and regional factors when carrying out the home buyers survey in Eye. Refer to the English Heritage website for further details on Barn At Rook Hall.
