Home Buyers Survey in Rushden

HomeBuyer Report

Should we book a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a house in Rushden and which is cheaper?

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

If the Rushden property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out an extension on the Rushden property, RICS recommend you book a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap, but it does offer an in-depth analysis of the Rushden property's condition and it includes more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Shocking Electrics

When we viewed the thirties house we expect to purchase, it appeared that there might be an overload of the fuses/fusebox, will a Homebuyer Report in Rushden advise on the electrical system condition?

When performing a Home Buyers Survey in Rushden your RICS surveyor should mention the condition of the electrics if it is apparent that they are in a poor state of repair. This should include a by sight check (i.e. no removal of fittings) of the open parts of the wiring in addition to areas e.g. reporting on the state of repair of fitted appliances, for example electric showers or verifying the condition of a sample of light fittings. Looking at any evidence of any recent PIR conducted by an electrician on the property being surveyed will form part of the survey.

The IEE suggest a periodic test need be completed every 10 years (5 if letting out).

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

The Sussex bond brick on this Rushden home needs work. What are the possible consequences? What impact do Rushden environmental conditions have?

Rushden brick-walled residential property can indicate a range of defects, from moisture damage to spalling. Your surveyor will mention these, with feedback. One defect surveyors of brick property frequently address is thermal or other movement. Often vertical cracks appear above the level of the DPC, running the full height of the wall, where this seasonal expansion and contraction occurs. Stuart Adam should be able to assist with a maintenance quote. Contact them at 07836 771640 or 19 Webb La, Birmingham, B28 0EB.

Brick-build property feature in construction throughout Rushden, leading to a range of courses arrangements and colours. Contact a specialist for more information if this is of interest.
