HomeBuyer Report

Should we have a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a home in Bartley Green and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey, although it is effectively the same survey.

If the Bartley Green property is a flat or maisonette, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction, you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any significant alterations, RICS advise you select a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it does give you comprehensive details of the Bartley Green property's state of repair and it includes advice on defects and maintenance options .

If in doubt get a Bartley Green Survey Quote or call us 0800 038 6667 to speak to a member of our team.

Gas flame

Does a qualified surveyor advise on the serviceability of the gas flues?

The qualified surveyor will locate and visually check any easily accessible parts of the gas system. This will include whether the meter is in an escape route for example, in addition to gas connected appliances or installations, for instance associated asbestos. Any external fittings will not however be dislodged. The system will not be tested. Of course, gas can be fatal, if you have any worries about gas fittings, call a gas engineer.

The regulations stipulate landlords have to commission appliance and installation inspections every year. Non compliance penalties include heavy fines or imprisonment .

Conservation area

Are there any issues I would be advised to be wary of if planning to buy a converted house in Bartley Green in the vicinity of conservation area ?

There are over 9, 000 of designated conservation areas in England and Wales which are overseen by the local council.

Home Buyers Surveys in Bartley Green need to have sufficient knowledge of local factors and any effect they have with the property. The price of property is generally more than prices outside the area as a result of the areas being preserved. However many are falling into poor condition for example - the removal front garden walls

Surveyors are trained to inform you if the planned purchase is possibly in a conservation area and Section I of your Bartley Green Homebuyer Report will advise additional due diligence and enquiries are conducted during the conveyancing process. Out of keeping developments to the property will also be advised but these are really more a concern for your lawyer. John Wilson and Co are a local firm situated at, Birmingham, West Midlands, B29 6HH and may be happy to help. Tel: 0121 4725700
