HomeBuyer Report

Should I choose a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a house in Aylestone and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey and is basically the same the same survey.

If the Aylestone property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any substantial modifications, RICS advise you commission a Building Survey. This option is less cheap, but it does offer an in-depth analysis of the Aylestone property's condition as well as including advice on defects , repairs and maintenance options .

Conservation area

Are there any problems I need to look out for when buying a flat in Aylestone near a conservation area ?

There are many thousands of conservation areas throughout England and Wales which are overseen by local authorities. Aylestone surveyors are required by RICS to have relevant knowledge of local factors and any relation may have with the home and its value. House prices are usually more than prices outside the area owing to them being preserved.

Surveyors will tell you if the home might be is so classified and Section I of the Homebuyer Report will recommend further enquiries are conducted by your legal representation. Unauthorised developments that do not have Local Authority approval may also be noted but these are really more a investigated by your lawyer.

Traditionally built property

What should we take notice of when purchasing an old building in Aylestone? Will the age of the property be an issue?

A building's age can be problematic, and Aylestone homes built using traditional methods can be expensive to repair. It is often the case that specialist expertise is necessary. Traditional building materials may also need to be sourced, particularly in the case of listed buildings. This may end up costing more than initially budgeted. Contact the Aylestone surveyor for more detail.

Building Surveys on flats 1

Should I pay a bit more for a full structural survey when considering a flat ?

The Full Structural Survey is now reclassified as the Building Survey. If you are buying a modified Aylestone home like a tatty flat - this is now the most suitable property survey. This non prescribed format of report will detail thorough and critical insight concerning the homes state of repair in addition to any needs for future maintenance, following a thorough visual inspection of the inside and outside of the main building.

There will be one or two restrictions with a Building Survey to be aware of because RICS chartered surveyor is not in a position to, unless safe to do so and with consent from the owner, force or open up the fabric of the Aylestone flat for example moving heavy furniture. Additionally flats typically mean access to the building can be prevented, and your appointed surveyor is only able to scrutinise the flat itself, however he may give details of shared parts like for example any alarm system. For more information and a breakdown of what each survey type includes see the following article.
