HomeBuyer Report

Should we opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a home in Addiscombe and of the 3, which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey, however it is essentially the same comprehensive survey.

If the Addiscombe property is a flat or maisonette, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out an extension, RICS advise you go for a Building Survey instead. This more detailed survey is not as cheap however it does give you a thorough analysis of the Addiscombe property's state of repair in addition to advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Conservation area

Are there any considerations we would need to check on when planning to buy a property in Addiscombe inside a conservation area ?

There are around ten thousand official conservation areas in the UK, responsibility for which lies with local councils.

A Building Surveyors need to have sufficient knowledge of relevant local factors and the effect they have on the home. The price of property is typically higher owing to them being largely unspoilt However many of them are falling into are falling into a poor state e.g. the unsightly effect of billboard advertising

Surveyors are expected report whether the building might be is designated and Section I of your Homebuyer Report will suggest the

proper questions are raised as part of the legal process. Unconsented adjustments to the property may be advised but these are really more a investigated by the solicitor.

Substandard guttering

On a HomeBuyer Report carried out in Addiscombe, can you give some examples of Condition rating 2 defects impacting rainwater pipes and gutters?

Defects which need some attention are rated 'amber' or condition rating 2, but they are not considered to be urgent or serious. They may also require frequent upkeep.

Quite a common example is rusted guttering. The drainage system is inspected visually, where access is possible. Other related matters are found elsewhere in the HomeBuyer Report combined system problems.

Damage resulting from flooding

When purchasing in Addiscombe, should we be uneasy about a flood risk, and will the home buyers survey check any flooding?

Flooding in Addiscombe can cause severe damage to both contents and property, and the value of a property can decrease if in an exposed area, even if it has never flooded. It is strongly recommended that the property is protected, before any water damage happens. Flood water can enter a home in Addiscombe through several routes, including poorly installed doors.

The GroundSure Flood Report is one of several risk screening reports designed to provide an overview of whether a home in Addiscombe lies within an area of potential or previous flood risk. The RICS surveyor will usually recommend that the purchasers seek legal advice on any related information mentioned in the report.

No Addiscombe flood alerts have been made (source: Environment Agency).
