Home Buyers Survey in Stanley

HomeBuyer Report

Should we book a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a house in Stanley and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey but is essentially the same.

If the Stanley property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any works or an extension, RICS advise you select a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap, however it does offer an in-depth analysis of the Stanley property's state of repair as well as including advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

Shocking Electrics

When we saw the unmodernised property we expect to lease, it looked like there might be an overload of the fuses/fusebox; does the surveyor report on the wiring and fusebox?

When performing a Stanley Home Survey a qualified surveyor will mention the electrical system if it is suspected that they are in a dangerous state of repair.

This should include a visual view of the open areas of the wiring, fusebox etc. as well as possible problems relating to things like verifying the nature of any electrical fittings in shower rooms or reporting on the condition of a representative sample of light fittings. A check for the documentation from the most recent Periodic Inspection Report conducted by an electrician on the building should usually form part of the survey in Stanley.

The IEE suggest that an electrical check need be completed every 10 years (5 if renting out). For expert nearby Stanley advice on all things electrical try Safety First , 12 Ashton Rise, Chester Le Street, DH2 2JA .

Window frame

In a Stanley HomeBuyer Report what effect can a an amber light rating have on 'E5 - Windows' ?

Where practicable, all windows are to be opened and closed, but not forced open, and vulnerable areas closely examined. The surveyor should make notes and advise the client whether it is possible to operate the window transoms/openings satisfactorily. Any broken glass windows is one defect applicable to this section. The RICS HomeBuyer Report is designed to be user-friendly. As buyers in Stanley are unlikely to be experts in local building techniques and materials themselves, the report is written with as little jargon as possible. Colour coded ratings are used to communicate the severity of any defects or points of interest included in the report. Issues requiring some attention are labelled condition rating 2, but they are not considered to be urgent or serious. They may also require frequent upkeep. Some areas may be marked as 'Not inspected'. If a house does not have a porch or conservatory, for example, these aspects of the report will be omitted.
