Did you know that if you buy a House In York without a Electrical Home Buyers Survey you could lose up to 8k !
The majority of surveys you pay for on a property in the York area do not go in depth
when it comes to checking the Electrical layout of the property and the
person checking it does not even look at the internal wiring of the
More to the point the person checking it unless a qualified
Electrician & qualified Inspector is not even allowed to remove
Electrical points or consumer unit covers to inspect the Electrical
Wiring and systems underneath.
So far this year I have attended 57 homes in York who
have called me in to do work having recently moved in, only to find the
house actually needs a complete re wire costing anything up to
The house owners actually paid for a survey on each of these
cases and each one did not recognise the fact the property needed
rewiring. Only certain types of Electrical contractors who have passed
the highest graded technical exams and have extensive experience in the
Electrical Industry can give a expert opinion and provide a written
report on the Electrical state of a property. A standard Electrician
cannot provide this so make sure you get the correct person for the job.
An Electrical inspector must view the property and this is the person
who conducts the survey. I work independently of any Estate Agents, I
work for you the customer and as such my report is not bias towards the
sale of the property it is factual, evidential and professional. just
what you require when determining weather or not to buy a property in
this day and age. I am not on commission for the sale of the property as
I work for you for the fraction of the cost of a regular survey
conducted by Estate Agents.
Contractors Ltd to conduct your Electrical Survey you know that we work
solely for you, not the Estate Agents and that the report you get will
be from the highest qualified Inspector & Tester registered with the
National Association of Professional Inspectors & Testers with over
16 years Contracting experience, I vow to you now if someone has
covered up a Electrical mess in your potential new home I will find it
before you sign, I will photograph it for you to see in my report to
Why has this happened?
This happened because anyone can put a new style socket and light
switch on a wall and cover up a potential mess of non earthed wiring
underneath. It is only until you check underneath the surface that you
find the errors which can cost a small fortune to put right. As a 17th
Edition Electrical Inspector I am qualified to say in writing the
Electrics inside a property have to meet a certain standard, if they do
not then my written reports save you money off your new home as I make
written estimations on correcting the wiring. That means you can take my
report back to the estate Agents and inform them your offer is now
going to be less due to the amount of corrective work needed to make the
electrics correct. That means you do not have to shell out unnecessary
funds and force the home owner to correct the work or you simply do not
buy the property.
Contact me today 0800 7797472 / 07864 000951 and I will arrange through your estate agents to visit your potential new home, I will thoroughly inspect it and provide you with a written fault list, and a professional estimation on how much it will cost to put right.
