Home Buyers Survey in Watton

HomeBuyer Report

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

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

If the Watton property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials, you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make any alterations, it would be better that you book a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap, but it will provide you with a more detailed analysis of the Watton property's general condition and it includes more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

Building Surveys on houses

We are investing in a defective period mid terrace property - is it best to spend a bit more on a full structural survey?

Full Structural Surveys have been renamed as Building Surveys. The HomeBuyer Report is appropriate for a post fifties unmodified home of typical construction materials and methods. The Building Survey is certainly the proper selection for the house mentioned. After a thorough inspection of the inside and outside of the main building a written report (pdf and written copy) will be sent to the prospective buyer summarising in depth and relevant details concerning the construction of the house. There are certain limitations with any survey insofar as a RICS surveyor will not be able to (unless owners consent provided) force or open up the fabric of the Watton building for example lifting up fitted carpets.

Traditionally built property

My partner and I are buying a 15th Century farmhouse. What effect will the age have on regular maintenance?

Vernacular architecture can be a cause of concern for would-be buyers, and Watton property built with traditional methods can be a drain to upkeep. It is often the case that expert knowledge is necessary. Traditional building materials may also need to be sourced, particularly in the case of , for example, a Grade II listed house. If you are uncertain, speak to your property surveyor for more information.

Shocking Electrics

When we went to see the building we are intending to purchase, the agent said that there is old wiring; does a surveyor go into detail on any faults with the electrics?

When conducting a Watton Home Buyers Survey a qualified surveyor will usually comment on the state of the electrics if it is suspected that the electrics are in an unsatisfactory state of repair. Your surveyor is required to report back on concerns such as reporting on the condition of the fitted electrical appliances like storage heaters or checking the condition of a representative sample of light fittings. Inspecting the evidence of the most recent PIR carried out by an electrician will usually be part of the Homebuyer report in Watton.

The Institute of Electrical Engineers recommend a Periodic Inspection be conducted every ten years (5 if renting out). We recommend you always get nearby advice on domestic electrical systems try Dack J E , Hale Rd, Ashill, Thetford, IP25 7BG .
