Home Buyers Survey in Tyldesley

HomeBuyer Report

Should I select a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a home in Tyldesley and which would be the cheapest?

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

If the Tyldesley property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out significant alterations on the Tyldesley property, RICS advise you book a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap, however it will give a more detailed analysis of the Tyldesley property's condition in addition to an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

Shocking Electrics

When I went to see the building I expect to acquire, it appeared that there are doubts as to then safety of the electrical system; does Homebuyer Report in Tyldesley report on the electrical system?

During a Tyldesley Building Survey the surveyor will typically comment on the electrics if it is apparent that they are in a dangerous state of repair. The RICS surveyor is trained to report back on issues like the whereabouts of the consumer unit or reporting on the condition of a sample of switch gear. Examining the evidence of a test on the condition of the electrical wiring handled by an electrician on the building should usually form part of the survey.

Confirming the existence of any documents from any recent PIR conducted by an electrician should form part of the survey.

The IEE advocate that a Periodic Inspection Report (PIR) is carried out every 10 years (or every 5 if letting).

Roof defects identified during a survey

The person in the flat below said that pooling water on the roof had been a concern. What should we do about roof repairs?

Questions like this are often asked of building surveyors by Tyldesley home buyers who are aware that property can be hiding serious roofing problems. From the eaves to the collar ties, the status of the whole roof should be reviewed. Flat roofs are also known for the trouble they can cause, often the result of amateur repairs.

Repairs to a dilapidated roof need not always be costly, but they should be budgeted for carefully. A building survey prior to exchange is highly recommended, so that you fully understand what expenses you will be facing. Prior to exchange, it may be worth sourcing from a Tyldesley contractor a quote for any suggested work.
