Homebuyer Mortgage Electrical Safety Survey
Buying new house or flat can be one of the most expensive purchases you’ll ever make. If you buy your new home and then find out that it needs to be re-wired this can be extremely expensive. Members of the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) recommend that electrical and heating reports are done prior to buying a house in order to give you peace of mind. The introduction of new regulations means that expert knowledge is required in order to undertake the tests. If you find out your new home needs re-wiring after you have bought it there is nothing you can do, but if you find out beforehand we can email a copy of the report to you so that you can discuss the details with the sellers.
We have vast experience in the domestic field so you can be confident about the quality of our services. Having a report done means that you know what you are getting into before you are fully committed.
A Mortgage Electrical Survey is essentially an Electrical Installation Condition Report (formerly known as a Periodic Inspection Report) for the purposes of a mortgage application. It is an in-depth inspection of the electrical installation followed by a comprehensive report detailing recommendations and remedial work required if any.
Mortgage surveyors very often request that an electrical survey is carried out on a property before a mortgage offer can be put in place. We are fully qualified electricians and can carry out an electrical inspection on your potential new home and produce the report required by your mortgage company within 24 hours of our inspection taking place. We are also happy to arrange appointments directly with the estate agency dealing with the purchase of your new home to make the process as hassle free as possible.
The Electrical Installation Condition Report is the most detailed inspection of the electrical installation within a property and will give you, as a buyer, an exact picture of the electrics within your potential new home.
