Home Buyers Survey in Okehampton

HomeBuyer Report

Should we choose a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a home in Okehampton and which one is the cheapest?

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

If the Okehampton property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any works or an extension, it would be better that you go for a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap but it does give comprehensive details of the Okehampton property's condition and it includes advice on defects and maintenance options .

Shocking Electrics

When we viewed the mid-century home we are planning to lease We noticed that there is an old fuse board , does a Okehampton Homebuyer Report give details on on electrical defects?

During a Okehampton Homebuyer Report the surveyor should remark on the electrics if it appears that they are in a poor condition. This should include an overview look-over of the unconcealed parts of the wiring or fusebox on top of things like the location of the meter. Inspecting the documents from the most recent PIR carried out by an electrician should be part of the survey. Inspecting the documents from any recent PIR handled by a suitably qualified electrician should form part of the survey.

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