Home Buyers Survey in Grenoside

HomeBuyer Report

Should I book a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a house in Grenoside and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey, although it is effectively the same comprehensive survey.

If the Grenoside property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction, then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out an extension, RICS advise you go for a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap, but it will provide you with exhaustive analysis of the Grenoside property's state of repair and it includes advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Shocking Electrics

When I went to see the thirties house I am planning to purchase it looked like there is deterioration in the wiring and RCD unit - does a the surveyor advise the electrics?

When performing a Grenoside Homebuyer Report a RICS surveyor should remark on the electrics if it appears that they are in a less than satisfactory state of repair. This should include an overview of open or exposed parts of the wiring, fusebox etc. and other areas like verifying the condition of any fitted appliances e.g. water heaters or checking the state of a representative sample of the range of light fittings and switch gear. A check for the documents from the most recent PIR handled by a suitably qualified electrician should form part of the Homebuyer report in Grenoside.

Confirming the existence of any documentation from a test on the condition of the electrical wiring carried out by a suitably qualified electrician should form part of the Homebuyer report in Grenoside .

The IEE recommend that a Periodic Inspection Report be completed every 10 years (5 if letting out).

Substandard guttering

In the HomeBuyer Report what are common Condition rating 3 defects for 'E3 - Rainwater pipes and gutters' ?

One example would be scuppers missing from roof drains. The drainage system is inspected visually. This section does not include any defects in a combined system. The home buyer report is intended to be easy to read and understand. As buyers in Grenoside are unlikely to be experts in local building techniques and materials themselves, the report is written with as little jargon as possible. Your property surveyor will mark each aspect of the property included in Section E with either a green, orange or red rating, to indicate the impact on the property individual defects may have. A condition rating of three is used to emphasise the most crucial repairs. They can include defects which compromise the structural integrity of a house. In some cases, an element covered under Section E may be marked as NI, or 'Not inspected'. The HomeBuyer Report has a standard format, which the surveyor will complete according to the nuances of the particular house, omitting sections as necessary.

Landfill site near home

What should I be worried about when buying a home proximate to a rubbish dump

Sites used for landfill take many forms e.g. non-hazardous refuse disposal. Of course nobody would want to live near one (4/5 people live near one). Concerns include complex organic chemicals. Health problems like downs syndrome have been associated to landfill sites .

Grenoside surveyors will note any structural issues linked to the landfill. Your conveyancing solicitor will conduct environmental searches of the British Geological database in addition to Sheffield Local Authority and give you the results of the search .
