Home Buyers Survey in Selsdon

HomeBuyer Report

Should we get a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a home in Selsdon and which would be cheaper?

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

If the Selsdon property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make any works or an extension, it would be better that you select a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap, however it does offer comprehensive details of the Selsdon property's general condition in addition to an opinion on defects , repairs and maintenance options .

Shocking Electrics

When we visited a sixties house we are planning to lease we saw that there is deterioration in the wiring and RCD unit, will a Homebuyer Report in Selsdon report on the general state of the electrical system?

When preparing a Homebuyer Report in Selsdon your RICS surveyor should mention the electrical system if it is apparent that they are in a hazardous condition. A Chartered surveyor is trained to provide detail on potential areas for concern such as verifying the nature of the electrical fittings in shower rooms or checking the state of a representative sample of light fittings.

Verifying the existence of any evidence of a test on the condition of the electrical wiring carried out by a suitably qualified electrician on the property will usually be part of the survey.

The Institute of Electrical Engineers advocate a Periodic Inspection Report (PIR) be completed every ten years (5 if letting). For expert nearby advice in Selsdon on electrical testing contact Maintracts Services Ltd , Croham Rd, South Croydon, CR2 7HJ .

Damage caused by high rainfall

How important is it to investigate gutters? Will the chartered surveyor report on this?

Both in Selsdon, and throughout the county, rain is so common that buyers rarely think about it. Unfortunately this issue is ignored by house purchasers. If you have visited the house you are buying in on a dry day, issues may have been hidden. This can lead to fungi or mould which can be a health risk.

That is not to say that drainage problems should cause you to reconsider a purchase. They are usually a simple matter to fix, and is also relatively inexpensive. If disregarded, however, the damage can be very costly and time-consuming to remedy.

Conservation area

Are there any issues we should look out for when intending to buy a home in Selsdon in conservation area ?

There are around ten thousand of conservation areas throughout England and Wales which are designated by the local authority. Surveyors in Selsdon are required by RICS to have local knowledge of local area factors and any bearing they have with the property and its value. The price of property is typically higher than non conservation area equivalents owing to conservation areas being largely unspoilt

Surveyors are trained to advise you whether the location looks like it may be classified as such and Section I of a Selsdon Homebuyer Report will advise the proper questions are carried out by the conveyancing solicitor. Out of keeping extensions to the property may be reported in the Selsdon survey, however these should be concern for your legal adviser.
