About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Sutton on Trent

HomeBuyer Report

Should I opt for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a house in Sutton on Trent and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey but is effectively the same level of survey.

If the Sutton on Trent property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make significant alterations, it would be better that you choose a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap, but it will offer a thorough analysis of the Sutton on Trent property's general condition and it includes advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

Damage resulting from flooding

We understand this house is located near a stream. Is there a major flood risk? Would our property surveyor look for flood damage?

It is estimated that over two million homes are at a high risk of floods, and the value of a residence in an at-risk area may be impacted. It is easily possible to assess whether a house is susceptible to flooding via any of a number of routes. In addition, the survey report may recommend maintenance.

The GroundSure Flood Report is one of several risk screening reports designed to provide an overview of whether a Sutton on Trent house lies within an area of potential or previous flood risk. The building surveyor may ask the property owner or occupier about historical floods, although the result of these enquires should be treated as a guide only.

Shocking Electrics

When we went to see the home we are intending to acquire it appeared that there were damaged electrical sockets - does a the Sutton on Trent surveyor advise the wiring and fusebox?

During a Sutton on Trent Homebuyer Report the RICS surveyor will usually add detail on the condition of the electrics if it is obvious that they are in an unsafe state.

This will include a visual check of the accessible areas of the wiring or fusebox in addition to potential areas for concern such as checking the state of repair of the fitted appliances, for example electric showers or reporting on the condition of a sample of the range of light fittings and switch gear. Inspecting any documents from a test on the condition of the electrical wiring conducted by an electrician will form part of the survey.

The IEE advocate a Periodic Inspection be completed at least every 10 years (or every 5 if letting out).

Roof defects identified during a survey

We are buying a loft-conversion in Sutton on Trent, and we are sensitive to the cost of roof repairs. What advice would the Sutton on Trent property surveyor give in their report?

Questions like this are often asked of Sutton on Trent surveyors by home buyers who are aware that property can be hiding serious roofing woes, like bowing beams. From the sheeting to the valley gutters, the status of the whole roof should be reviewed. Problems can often arise in the case of flat roofs, caused by literally being flat. An incline of at least '1 to 80' is recommended.

It may be inconvenient to employ scaffolding to perform repairs, especially in the busy parts of Sutton on Trent, but it is a health and safety necessity. If a estimate for roofing work is required, a contractor in Sutton on Trent can provide one.
