Conservation area

Are there any potential pitfalls we would need to look into if buying a property in Appleby In Westmorland inside a conservation area ?

There are thousands of designated conservation areas throughout England and Wales which are governed by local councils.

A Building Surveyors need to have local knowledge of local issues and the relation may have with the building and its value. Values is typically greater due to them resisting change. However many areas have been neglected and are in a poor state e.g. the huge increase in street clutter

RICS surveyors are trained to report if the house looks like it may be classified as such and Section I of the Homebuyer Report will recommend additional due diligence and enquiries are carried out as part of the legal process. Unauthorised extensions that do not have Local Authority approval may be commented on, however these should be concern for your conveyancer.

Defective door frame

In the HomeBuyer Report, what impact will a an amber light rating have on outside doors?

The format of the RICS HomeBuyer Report is clear and easy to read. As buyers in Appleby In Westmorland are unlikely to be experts in local building techniques and materials themselves, the report is written with as little jargon as possible. The surveyor uses a scale between 1 and 3 to show to what extent each defect requires attention. Condition rating 2 suggests that the aspect of the house or flat in question will need some work. This may not be urgent, however. In Appleby In Westmorland, examples include water leaks around door frames. All doors leading outside are checked, assuming keys are available. Generally, the type and condition of the property's windows are included in the report.
