Home Buyers Survey in South Harrow

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to get a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a home in South Harrow and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same level of survey.

If the South Harrow property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make any major works, RICS recommend you choose a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap but it does give an in-depth analysis of the South Harrow property's general condition along with an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

Shocking Electrics

When we viewed the unmodernised property we intend to move into, it looked like there is an unsafe electrical system, does a Homebuyer Report in South Harrow write anything on electrical defects?

When carrying out a Home Survey in South Harrow the RICS surveyor will typically report on the overall electrical system if it appears that the electrics are in an unsafe condition. This should include a by sight look-over of the accessible sections of the wiring on top of concerns such as verifying the nature of electrical fittings in shower rooms or checking the condition of any visible wiring a representative sample of switch gear. Inspecting any evidence of a test on the condition of the electrical installations carried out by an electrician on the property being surveyed should form part of the survey in South Harrow.

For local advice from a certified electrician call MTM Electrical Services , 71 High Worple, Harrow, HA2 9SX .

Timber damage by insect larvae

I am worried about pests in the building we plan to buy - How do we investigate further?

Purchasers should know that is not a requirement that the vendor to mention a pest issue. Regrettably, pests can seriously reduce the value of a property and carry serious health risks. It may not be obvious that a house is suffering a severe pest problem, as evidence can be overlooked. As an example, skin irritation or spots of blood on bedsheets may indicate the presence of bed bugs. Treatment for bug or other pest issues may include removal or excision of affected timber.
