Home Buyers Survey in Wisbech

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to book a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a home in Wisbech and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey but is essentially the same level of survey.

If the Wisbech property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out major works, RICS advise you go for a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap, however it will provide you with an in-depth analysis of the Wisbech property's state of repair as well as including an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

Shocking Electrics

When I went to see the house I am meaning to purchase it appeared that there is deterioration in the wiring and RCD unit; does the surveyor advise on the electrical system condition?

When carrying out a Wisbech Building Survey the home surveyor will typically remark on the condition of the electrics if it appears that they are in a poor state of repair. This should include a by sight view of exposed sections of the wiring or fusebox as well as possible problems relating to things like whether there is an off-peak /on-peak mains supply. Looking at any evidence of the most recent PIR conducted by an electrician should usually form part of the survey. Inspecting any documents from the most recent PIR conducted by an electrician will usually be part of the survey in Wisbech .

The Institute of Electrical Engineers advise that a check to confirm whether an electrical installation is in a satisfactory condition need be completed at least every 10 years (5 if letting). For Wisbech help on electrical testing call P Fisher Electrical , 11 Second Av, Wisbech, PE13 2BX .

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Should I get a separate valuation and cost of rebuild estimate (including the cost of rebuilding permanent outbuildings) and how is it calculated?

Homebuyer Reports include a RICS qualified surveyor valuation and a "reinstatement cost" as part of the report. To properly appraise the valuation the valuer will relate to local Wisbech market factors and other factors about the property for instance: accommodation The surveyor will also consider construction methods and will draw upon key assumptions like there are no damaging materials. Surveyors ignore things like furnishings e.g. carpets.

Additional local Wisbech area conjectures like the access roads not being in private control, are made in addition to local environmental concerns like intrusive noises or smells, which will also be factored in. A Building survey does not include a valuation as standard. However we can add a valuation for a nominal fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.

Stone block wall damage

We are planning to buy a home and the seller's agent has confirmed that it has been built with Wooton stone. Which major defects should we consider?

Incorrect specification of coating type to damp or defective walls can often cause problems for Wisbech houses with stone walls. The properties of a stone can affect wear as much as upkeep or construction. Regular stone describes cut stone, generally forming brick-like courses. These may require less maintenance than more irregularly built walls, but this is heavily dependent on the type of stone used. Buyers should consider that stone can have a great effect on the long-term viability of a property or extension, resulting in higher repair costs in future. For example, slate is more damp resistant than many other forms of stone, as is granite. Upkeep advice often given in a survey includes.

Damage caused by high rainfall

What impact may heavy rain have on a property?

Regular rainfall is common in Wisbech and across the country, but damp weather and the effect it can have on buildings in Wisbech are rarely considered properly by buyers. One indication that rainwater goods are a cause for concern is rusted iron elements. This could then result in damage to foundations.

That is not to say that drainage problems should cause you to reconsider a purchase. They are usually a simple matter to repair. Where this is not cared for, the damage becomes increasing costly to remedy.
