Home Buyers Survey in Haydock

HomeBuyer Report

Should I have a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a property in Haydock and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey and is essentially the same survey.

If the Haydock property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out any works or an extension, RICS recommend you book a Building Survey. This option is less cheap however it will give a more detailed analysis of the Haydock property's condition in addition to advice on structural defects , repairs and maintenance options .

Stone block wall damage

We are planning to buy a house and the estate agent has stated that it has been built with Wooton stone. Are there any major issues that we should be aware of?

Locally quarried stone may be more susceptible to specific issues. Defects affecting stone-built buildings can vary, staining 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.

Regular courses of ashlar (cut stone) are often used as a finish to irregular stone walls, with mortared rubble or brick hidden behind. These walls will need frequent upkeep.

Ask you surveyor for details, but the report may specify using traditional techniques when making repairs to the fabric of older buildings.

If you need more assistance, contact a Haydock expert, including Fireside By Design, 282 Church Rd, Haydock, St. Helens, WA11 0LF (Tel: 01942 722766).

Shocking Electrics

When we saw the mid-century home we are intending to lease it looked like there could be corrosion of the wiring. Will a Haydock survey advise on the electrical system condition?

When carrying out a Haydock Homebuyer Report your surveyor should usually add detail on the electrics if it is apparent that the electrics are in a poor condition. A Chartered surveyor should also provide detail on concerns such as making sure that supplementary bonding is in the correct place. Inspecting the documentation from the most recent Periodic Inspection Report conducted by a suitably qualified electrician will be part of the Homebuyer report in Haydock. Ascertaining the whereabouts of any evidence of the most recent PIR handled by an electrician will be part of the survey.

The Institute of Electrical Engineers (IEE) advocate a periodic test need be completed every 10 years (5 if letting out). For expert nearby Haydock advice on electrical testing call Grade A Electrical , 1 Sibley Ave, Ashton-In-Makerfield, Wigan, WN4 8SG .
