HomeBuyer Report

Should I go for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a home in Arlesey and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey and is effectively the same.

If the Arlesey property is a flat, or is an older property, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any alterations, it would be better that you choose a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap, however it does give an in-depth analysis of the Arlesey property's state of repair as well as including information on defects and maintenance options .

Conservation area

Are there any issues we would need to check out when planning to buy a property in Arlesey in conservation area ?

There are over 9, 000 official conservation areas in the UK, responsibility for which lies with local councils. Arlesey surveyors are required by RICS to have relevant knowledge of relevant local issues and the relation they have with the property. Property Prices are generally higher which is down to them being unspoilt.

Property surveyors will report whether the location looks like it may be is so classified and Section I of the Arlesey Homebuyer Report will advise additional enquiries are conducted by your conveyancer. Unconsented modifications that do not have Local Authority approval will also be noted in the survey but these are really more a investigated by your conveyancer.

Defective door frame

On a Arlesey HomeBuyer Report what can 'E6 - Outside doors' include?

External doors are checked, assuming keys are available. Generally, where doors have obviously been replaced, relevant issues are considered. This can include overall quality, whether the frame provides adequate support, and building regulations have been met (e.g. FENSA and Certass). Double or triple glazed doors where the glazing seal has been lost or broken is one example. The format of the RICS HomeBuyer Report is clear and easy to read. As buyers in Arlesey are unlikely to be experts in local building techniques and materials themselves, the report is written with as little jargon as possible. The report uses colour coded condition ratings to give house buyers in Arlesey a clear understanding of the impact on the property individual defects may have. Some areas may be marked as 'Not inspected'. The structured format for the HomeBuyer Report is intended to produce a useful and comprehensive survey for any house buyers in Arlesey. As a result, some sections are omitted where they do not apply to the surveyed property.
