Home Buyers Survey in Ruthin

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to get a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a home in Ruthin and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey, however it is basically the same the same survey.

If the Ruthin property is a flat, or is an older property, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out any works or an extension, you should you book a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap but it does give a thorough analysis of the Ruthin property's general condition in addition to more detailed advice on defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

Shocking Electrics

When we viewed the mid-century home we are interested to purchase, it looked like there are doubts as to then safety of the electrical system, does a Ruthin survey write anything on the wiring and fusebox?

When conducting a Home Buyers Survey in Ruthin the RICS surveyor will typically add detail on the overall electrical system if it appears that they are in a dangerous state.

This should include a visual inspection of open or exposed areas of the wiring or fusebox on top of issues like checking the state of repair of any fitted appliances, e.g. storage heaters or the location of the fuse board . Verifying the location of the documentation from the most recent PIR carried out by an electrician on the property being surveyed will usually form part of the survey in Ruthin.

Building Surveys on maisonettes

Should I get a full structural survey prior to buying a poor condition forties penthouse maisonette in Ruthin?

The Building Survey has taken over the Full Structural Survey following its reclassification a while ago by the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors. When buying a modified home, for example a neglected maisonette in Ruthin, this is now the most appropriate survey to choose. The HomeBuyer Report will suffice if investigating a non period unmodified maisonette of conventional construction materials. Subsequent to a thorough survey of the inside and outside of the main building, a formal report is sent to the client going through in depth and salient information concerning the standard of construction and repair of the house. There will be certain provisos with any survey because a surveyor is not in a position to, unless safe to do so and with consent from the owner, open up the fabric of the of the Ruthin maisonette for example removing secured panels. See the survey differences article for more detail on property surveys.
