HomeBuyer Report

Should I book a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a home in Barnoldswick and which one would be the cheapest?

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

If the Barnoldswick property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make any major works, RICS recommend you go for a Building Survey instead. The Building Survey is not as cheap, however it will give you a thorough analysis of the Barnoldswick property's condition as well as including more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Conservation area

Are there any concerns I need to look into when planning to buy a flat in Barnoldswick in conservation area, particularly in relation to house prices?

There are 9, 300 of designated conservation areas in England and Wales that are designated and monitored by local councils. Surveyors in Barnoldswick need to possess sufficient knowledge of local considerations and any relation may have on the home. House prices will likely be inflated because of them being unspoilt.

Surveyors will inform you whether the building is/might be within a conservation area and Section I Issues for your legal advisers of the Homebuyer Report will recommend further enquiries are conducted

by your legal representation. Unapproved adjustments that do not have Local Authority approval may also be noted in the survey, however these should be investigated by the lawyer. Walker Foster are a local firm situated at 63 Kirkgate, Pendle, Lancashire, BD20 0PB and may be able help you with further information. Tel: 01535 656000

Damage caused by high rainfall

Do I need to check downspouts? We're concerned about replacement costs.

As a frequent surveyor of local property, I find it strange that the effect which wet weather has on houses is not given more thought by buyers. If you have visited the property you intend to purchase in the Summer, defects may not have been obvious. Signs that gutters are worth a closer look include spalling masonry. This could then result in fungi or mould which can be a health risk.

That is not to say that drainage problems should cause you to reconsider a purchase. They are usually a simple matter to fix. If poorly maintained, however, the damage will impact both the home's value, and the residents' enjoyment of the property.

Gas flame

Will a chartered surveyor advise on the serviceability of the gas supply?

Yes. Your surveyor will visually check the accessible parts of the system. This will include whether the mains is connected at the property, as well as gas affiliated fittings e.g. fixed external ventilation hearths. Fittings won't however be taken off. Gas is potentially dangerous, should there be any worries about gas fittings, contact a gas safe engineer.
