Home Buyers Survey in Leyland

HomeBuyer Report

Should we go for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a house in Leyland and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same.

If the Leyland property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any alterations, you should you go for a Building Survey instead. The Building Survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it will offer comprehensive details of the Leyland property's general condition along with advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

Building Surveys on houses

What are the advantages to commission a full structural survey as opposed to a HomeBuyer Report?

Structural Surveys are no longer offered by Surveyors as a new technical survey entitled the Building Survey, is now offered by surveyors. You would be best advised to go for the Building Survey in relation to the house described. A HomeBuyer Report is enough for a post fifties unmodified Leyland house made out of standard building materials. Be aware that some caveats exist with the survey - the surveyor cannot (unless owners consent provided) force or open up the structure of the building nor can he/she assess heating installations.

Conservation area

Are there any concerns I should be wary of if buying an extended house in Leyland inside a conservation area ?

There are nearly 10, 000 official conservation areas throughout England and Wales which are designated by local authorities. Leyland surveyors need to have local knowledge of relevant local area issues and any bearing they have on the home and its value. Prices is typically inflated owing to them being in their original state.

Property surveyors are trained to inform you if the house looks like it may be so designated and Section I Issues for your legal advisers of a Leyland Homebuyer Report will suggest further enquiries are carried out by your legal representation. Unauthorised changes that do not have Local Authority approval will also be noted, however these should be concern for your conveyancer. Nicholsons are a local firm situated at 32 Town Road, South Ribble, Lancashire, PR26 9RB might be prepared to advise further. Tel: 01772 601700

Shocking Electrics

When I saw the house I am planning to acquire, the agent said that there could be corrosion of the wiring. Will a Leyland Homebuyer Report go into detail on electrical system condition?

When performing a Building Survey in Leyland the RICS surveyor will usually add detail on the state of the electrics if it appears that they are in a dangerous state. This should include a by sight check of any revealed parts of the wiring, fusebox etc. as well as potential areas for concern such as verifying the condition of any fitted appliances like water heaters or checking the condition of any visible wiring a sample of light fittings. Inspecting any evidence of any recent PIR carried out by a suitably qualified electrician on the building will be part of the Homebuyer report in Leyland. Examining the evidence of a test on the condition of the electrical wiring carried out by a suitably qualified electrician should be part of the survey.

The IEE advocate a periodic test be conducted every ten years (or every 5 if letting).

Timber damage by insect larvae

We are buying in Leyland, and think we saw signs of pests in the basement - What advice should we get?

Questions regarding the infestation of a Leyland home may not be raised during the conveyancing. Unfortunately, the impact to a house and its inhabitants can affect the health of residents and affect its value.

It may not be obvious that a home is suffering a severe pest problem, as evidence can be overlooked, for example, cockroaches hide during the day, in light-fittings, beneath cracks in floor tiles or behind appliances. You may not spot them until moving in. Treatment for a serious infestation may include removal of infected furniture.RICS guidelines on the issue of pest problems are something of a 'grey-area', so specific fears should be mentioned to your chartered surveyor. Speak to an expert, e.g. Professional Pest Busters Ltd, 85 Western Drive, Leyland, Preston, Lancashire, PR25 1YE on 0786 644 6655, for more detail.
