Home Buyers Survey in Liskeard

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to select a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a property in Liskeard and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey and is basically the same the same comprehensive survey.

If the Liskeard property is a flat or maisonette, or is a period property, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction, you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make major works on the Liskeard property, you should you commission a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap however it does provide you with an in-depth analysis of the Liskeard property's state of repair as well as advice on structural defects , repairs as well as maintenance options .

Shocking Electrics

When we visited the home we are hoping to buy we noticed that there might be an overload of the fuses/fusebox, will a surveyor advise on the electrical system condition?

When performing a Home Survey in Liskeard your surveyor will usually remark on the state of the electrics if it is obvious that they are in a less than satisfactory condition.

This should include a visual inspection of the superficial areas of the wiring on top of things like the location of the fuse board .

Verifying the existence of any documents from a test on the condition of the electrical wiring carried out by an electrician should be part of the survey in Liskeard. Examining the documents from the most recent Periodic Inspection Report conducted by a suitably qualified electrician should be part of the survey.

The Institute of Electrical Engineers advocate that a Periodic Inspection be completed every 10 years (or every 5 if letting).

Timber damage by insect larvae

I am worried about an infestation in the home we plan to buy - Will a surveyor look into this?

Liskeard purchasers should be aware that there is no legal obligation for the vendor to mention a pest issue. Pests quite literally come in all shapes and sizes, and can be more difficult to treat than many buyers realise. Evidence may not be easy to find, a moth infestation may not be found for months after purchase, and even if treated, may never be fully eradicated. Treatment for insect infestation may include removal or excision of affected timber. Your home surveyor may report on signs of infestation.

Roof defects identified during a survey

We are buying a loft-conversion in Liskeard - What should we keep an eye out for during the investigation?

This often causes anxiety for buyers in Liskeardwho have had to put up with weeks of scaffolding around their home while work is underway. Many residential properties may be exposed to difficulties with the roof, for example, missing tiles. From the gables to the ridge flashing, the status of the whole roof should be reviewed. Difficulties can often arise in the case of flat roofs, caused by badly installed felting.

It may be inconvenient to employ scaffolding to perform repairs, especially in the busy parts of Liskeard, but it is a health and safety necessity. Once the surveyor has delivered their report, consider arranging a quote from a Liskeard contractor for the job itself.
