HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to get a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a house in Axbridge and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey but is effectively the same level of survey.

If the Axbridge property is a flat, or is 100 or more years old, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any an extension, RICS advise you book a Building Survey instead. This option is not as cheap however it will give you a more detailed analysis of the Axbridge property's state of repair along with an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

If in doubt get a Axbridge Homebuyers Survey Quote on our website or call us 0800 038 6667 to speak to a member of our team.

Conservation area

Are there any concerns we would be advised to check on if intending to buy an extended house in Axbridge in the vicinity of conservation area ?

There are over 9, 000 of designated conservation areas throughout England and Wales that are designated and monitored by local councils.

Home Buyers Surveys in Axbridge are required by RICS to have sufficient knowledge of relevant local considerations and the connection they have on the building and its value. Values is usually higher which is down to conservation areas being in their original state. However many of them are falling into have been neglected and are in a poor state e.g. unauthorised alterations to the fronts, roofs and chimneys of buildings

Surveyors are expected tell you if the home is or might be so designated and Section I of the Axbridge Homebuyer Report will advise additional

due diligence and enquiries are conducted during the legal process. Unconsented adjustments that do not have Local Authority approval may be advised in your survey, however these should be investigated by your conveyancer.

Conservatory

In the HomeBuyer Report what might a Condition Rating 1 mean for 'E7 - Conservatory and porches' ?

For a Axbridge residential property, one issue is a stair run that is too short or steep. Section E7 defects include those affect any porch or conservatory attached to the home. Safety hazards, including floor-level glass and blocked escape routes from upper storey windows will also be mentioned in the report.

A 'green' condition rating of 1 confirms that no repairs are required, but maintenance may still be necessary. Some areas may be marked as 'Not inspected'. If a Axbridge house or flat does not have a porch or conservatory, for example, these aspects of the report will be omitted.

Damaged Render

What will the Axbridge Surveyor look out for on a stucco coated Victorian house in Axbridge that we intend to purchase.

Stucco is a kind of render. Usually it is applied to brick that sets to a flat surface, often then trowled to give the appearance of stone blocks. The effect is very aesthetic and is found on Victorian and Regency homes. It is almost exactly the same as plaster. It can have lime in it as well as plant fibres to help prevent cracks. Stucco is often prone to defect and Surveyors can show issues such as when stucco is exposed to driving rain which gets perma-saturated and thus prone to frost damage. Other potential problems might result from the difficulty is diagnosing damp underneath. Re-applying problems with stucco can be surprisingly expensive as renderers are becoming harder to find.
