Home Buyers Survey in Kirkwhelpington

HomeBuyer Report

Should I get a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a home in Kirkwhelpington and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey, however it is essentially the same comprehensive survey.

If the Kirkwhelpington property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any significant alterations, RICS recommend you carry out a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap, however it does give a thorough analysis of the Kirkwhelpington property's condition as well as including information on defects and maintenance options .

Traditionally built property

What do I need to investigate when purchasing a building constructed in 1780? Will the structure's age be a concern?

Older construction methods and materials can be a cause of concern for would-be buyers. Kirkwhelpington homes built with traditional methods can be surprisingly expensive to maintain. It is often the case that expert knowledge is necessary, and it could also be necessary to find Materials suitable for the work.

Shocking Electrics

When we saw the mid-century home we are hoping to move into, it looked like there are doubts as to then safety of the electrical system; will a Homebuyer Report in Kirkwhelpington write anything on any faults with the electrics?

When conducting a Home Buyers Survey in Kirkwhelpington a qualified surveyor should comment on the overall electrical system if it is suspected that they are in an unsafe state. A Surveyor is expected to provide detail on issues like whether there are miniature circuit breakers (MCBs) or reporting on the condition of a representative sample of the range of light fittings and switch gear.

Verifying the existence of any evidence of a test on the condition of the electrical installations carried out by a suitably qualified electrician should usually be part of the survey in Kirkwhelpington. Reporting on any documentation from a test on the condition of the electrical installations handled by a suitably qualified electrician on the building will form part of the Homebuyer report in Kirkwhelpington .

The Institute of Electrical Engineers advise that a check to confirm whether an electrical installation is in a satisfactory condition be completed at least every 10 years (or every 5 if letting).
