About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Wigton

HomeBuyer Report

Should we have a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a property in Wigton and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, however it is basically the same the same level of survey.

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

If you are thinking about whether to do any significant alterations, RICS advise you opt for a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap, but it will provide you with a more detailed analysis of the Wigton property's general condition in addition to information on defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

Other external areas of the property

On a HomeBuyer Report carried out in Wigton, what effect can a an red light rating have on factors covered in Section E?

Severe defects impacting the property are indicated with a 'red' condition rating of 3. 'Red' defects may also need further investigation by a qualified specialist before a full assessment can be made. RICS created the HomeBuyer Report to give property buyers a clear and easy to read report on the condition of the home they plan to buy, unlike some more complex survey reports. Green, orange and red ratings are an indication of the severity of defects uncovered during the survey. This category is used for external elements that require reporting that do not fit elsewhere in Section E. Your surveyor can provide more details if required. Leaning, settled and heaved columns forming the structure of a conservatory or porch is one example.

Damage resulting from flooding

Will our Wigton chartered surveyor check flood damage, or if other properties have been affected?

Contrary to popular opinion, the distance a Wigton property in Wigton is from the nearest river or coast is not the only measure of flood risk, and home buyers and owners are understandably concerned. It is easily possible to assess whether a house is susceptible to flooding via any of a number of routes, but a surveyor will also make recommendations to prepare for the worst.

Preventative measures can include costly but effective solutions e.g. the use of lime-based plaster on walls, the data used to compile third-party flood assessments also takes into account flood defences and historic claims.

Gas flame

Does a Wigton surveyor report on the safety of the gas installations?

Your local surveyor will locate and visually survey the easily accessible parts of the gas system. This means things like the location of the meter as part of the survey, as well as gas connected appliances or installations like the possibility of asbestos. Gas fittings will not however be taken off. The gas system will not be tested at all. Of course, gas is potentially fatal, if you have any worries about gas, contact a gas safe engineer.

The Gas Safety (Installation & Use) Regulations 1998 require landlords must to complete appliance and installation inspections every year. Non compliance penalties are harsh .
