Home Buyers Survey in Little Oakley

HomeBuyer Report

Should I have a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a property in Little Oakley and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey, however it is basically the same the same comprehensive survey.

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

If you are planning to carry out any alterations, you should you book a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it will provide you with a more detailed analysis of the Little Oakley property's general condition as well as including an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

Damage caused by high rainfall

How will we know what effect can damp weather have on our new home in Little Oakley? Could it affect the property value?

The impact of climate change is widely reported, yet this issue is overlooked by house purchasers. One indication that gutters are worth a closer look is leaves or other vegetation causing a blockage. Blocked rainwater goods can result in damp and mould.

Luckily, these defects are quite easy to resolve for a reasonable cost.However, the damage caused, where disregarded, will be expense to remedy and resulting damp and mould could become a health risk.

Shocking Electrics

When we viewed the mid-century home we expect to lease We noticed that there is deterioration in the wiring and RCD unit, does a the Little Oakley surveyor advise the wiring and electrical system?

When conducting a Little Oakley Home Survey a surveyor will typically remark on the electrical system if it looks like the electrics are in a less than satisfactory state of repair. This will include a visual check of the accessible areas of the wiring as well as other things, for example checking the state of repair of any fitted appliances, e.g. storage heaters. .

Examining the evidence of a test on the condition of the electrical connections conducted by an electrician will usually be part of the Homebuyer report in Little Oakley. A check for the documentation from the most recent PIR carried out by an electrician should be part of the survey in Little Oakley .

Damage resulting from flooding

We are intending to buy a ground floor apartment in Little Oakley, does the HomeBuyer Report inquire into indications of flooding, or whether flooding has affected other properties?

Last year was the second wettest year on record (source: The Met Office), and the value of a residential property in an at-risk area may be impacted. A flood warning service, with regular updates, is operated by the Environment Agency. The property survey may also, where appropriate, advise on needed maintenance.Section J of the survey report contains details, where applicable, of flooding risks found within the boundaries of the house or on adjacent sites. Flooding issues will only be raised in Section J of a property survey if the home surveyor observes or has reason to suspect that the house is at risk.
