Home Buyers Survey in Kington

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to choose a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a property in Kington and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same.

If the Kington property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any alterations, RICS advise you select a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap, however it will offer a thorough analysis of the Kington property's general condition as well as including more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Castle Twts is a scheduled monument considered to be of national importance. Places of local importance can certainly increase the desirability of an area. Other monuments of interest include Dolbedwin Castle Mound, Gaer Roman Site and Huntington Castle.. The RICS surveyor will consider all regional factors when carrying out the homebuyer report in Kington. Refer to the English Heritage site for more details on Castle Twts.

Shocking Electrics

When I went to see a property I expect to lease, the agent said that there were damaged electrical sockets - does a the Kington surveyor advise on the electrical system condition?

When performing a Kington Homebuyer Report a surveyor should usually remark on the electrical system if it is clear that the electrics are in a hazardous condition. This will include a by sight inspection of the superficial areas of the wiring, fusebox etc. as well as other things, for example examining the category of any electrical fittings in bathrooms or reporting on the condition of any visible wiring a representative sample of switch gear. Verifying the location of the documents from any recent PIR handled by an electrician on the property should be part of the survey.

The IEE (Institute of Electrical Engineers) advise a Periodic Inspection is carried out at least every 10 years (or every 5 if renting out).

Damage resulting from flooding

Is there a risk of flooding in Kington, and can a Kington building survey look for signs of flood damage?

Unfortunately, distance from water or height above sea level is no guarantee that a home will be secure against flooding damage. Those planning to buy in affected areas should weigh up their exposure. It is strongly recommended that the property is protected, before water damage ruins both the walls and floors, and contents. The Building Survey may also, where appropriate, recommend maintenance.Familiarity with characteristics of the local area likely to affect property enables the RICS surveyor to surmise flooding may be a risk, even if the property has not itself flooded before. Also included on Environment Agency's flood warning are details of local rivers and other bodies of water prone to flooding.
