Home Buyers Survey in Thames Ditton

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to have a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a home in Thames Ditton and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same survey.

If the Thames Ditton property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any an extension, RICS advise you go for a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap however it does give a more detailed analysis of the Thames Ditton property's condition along with more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Shocking Electrics

When I viewed a sixties house I am interested to acquire I noticed that there was no RCD on the fuse board ; will a Thames Ditton survey advise on the electrical system condition?

When carrying out a Thames Ditton Home Survey your RICS surveyor will report on the electrics if it is obvious that they are in a dangerous condition. This should include an overview or check of exposed sections of the wiring and other concerns such as if there is an on-peak/off-peak mains supply.

Confirming the existence of any evidence of the most recent PIR handled by a suitably qualified electrician should be part of the survey. Verifying the location of the evidence of a test on the condition of the electrical wiring conducted by an electrician will usually be part of the survey.

The Institute of Electrical Engineers suggest a Periodic Inspection be conducted every ten years (5 if letting out).

Traditionally built property

What do I need to consider when buying an older property? Will the age of the residence be an issue?

Many buyers hope to own property with real personality. For traditionally-built Thames Ditton property, age, however, can create issues for homeowners, and Structures featuring traditional methods can be a drain to maintain. You should consider that expert knowledge may be needed. Traditional building materials may also need to be sourced, particularly in the case of Grade I listed property. If you have doubts, speak to the surveyor for more detail.
