Home Buyers Survey in Temple Mills

HomeBuyer Report

Should I choose a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a home in Temple Mills and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same comprehensive survey.

If the Temple Mills property is a flat, or is an older property, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out alterations, RICS recommend you select a Building Survey. This option is less cheap, but it does give you a more detailed analysis of the Temple Mills property's condition in addition to an opinion on defects , repairs as well as maintenance options .

Conservation area

Are there any considerations we need to consider when planning to buy a flat in Temple Mills in the vicinity of conservation area ?

There are around ten thousand official conservation areas throughout the country which are designated by local councils. Temple Mills surveyors are required by RICS to have relevant knowledge of relevant local issues and any connection they have on the home and its value. Values is usually higher than non conservation area equivalents which is down to conservation areas retaining original features. However many areas are falling into poor condition e.g. the addition of PVC windows and doors

Property surveyors are expected advise you if the planned purchase is/might be so designated and Section I of a Homebuyer Report will advise further investigations are conducted during the conveyancing process. Unsympathetic changes that do not have Local Authority approval may be noted in the survey but these are really more a concern for the lawyer.

Shocking Electrics

When I was shown the home I am meaning to lease, I think we saw that there is old wiring. will the Temple Mills surveyor go into detail on electrical system condition?

During a Home Survey in Temple Mills a RICS surveyor should comment on the state of the electrics if it is suspected that the electrics are in an unsatisfactory state. A Home surveyor is expected to provide detail on issues like reporting on the condition of any visible wiring a representative sample of switch gear. Ascertaining the whereabouts of any documents from a test on the condition of the electrical wiring carried out by a suitably qualified electrician will be part of the survey in Temple Mills. .

Examining the evidence of any recent PIR carried out by a suitably qualified electrician will usually be part of the Homebuyer report in Temple Mills .

The IEE (Institute of Electrical Engineers) suggest a Periodic Inspection need be completed every ten years (or every 5 if letting).

Building Surveys on houses

Should I upgrade to the full structural survey when looking into a substantially modified thirties property in Temple Mills over a HomeBuyer Report?

Now often called the Full Structural Survey by house buyers, it is now defunct and has actually been renamed by RICS and the correct name is now the Building Survey. We recommend that you choose the Building Survey for the house referred to. The HomeBuyer Report goes into enough detail for a mid 20th century of later unmodified house of standard construction materials.

There are certain restrictions come with a Building Survey as a local surveyor will not be able to force or open up the structure of the house for example, or investigate the internal state of any flues.
