What will a HomeBuyers Report tell me?
Darren Watts from Manchester
Before you buy questions and answers
I have just had an offer accepted on a property. It is a 1935 3 bed semi. It is a probate sale and I think there has been very little work on the property for many year, it's a real doer upper. Therefore I am going to get a home buyers survey done to see what the issues are but I am unsure exactly what to expect in the report. Apart from telling me any structural issues with the walls, roof and flooring etc, will the report tell me if: 1 - the house needs to be re-wired? 2 - the house needs to be re-plastered? 3 - the condition of the chimneys and what needs to be done/how much it would cost to bring out the old fireplaces? 4 - if there are any damp issues with the house?
Many thanks in advance Darren
