HomeBuyer Report

Should I have a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a house in Belper and which one would be cheaper?

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

If the Belper property is an apartment, or is a period property, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any major works on the Belper property, RICS advise you opt for a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it does offer exhaustive analysis of the Belper property's state of repair as well as advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

Landfill site near home

Landfill Sites take many forms e.g. commercial waste. There are thousands of sites affect hundreds of thousands of people in the UK including Belper. Concerns include structurally instability .

Homebuyer reports in Belper will find any structural issues linked to the site. Your conveyancer will conduct conveyancing searches of the British Geological databases as well as Amber Valley Local Authority and give you the results of the search .

Window frame

On the HomeBuyer Report what does 'E5' cover?

Where practicable, all windows are to be opened and closed, but not forced open, and vulnerable areas closely examined. The surveyor should make notes and advise the client whether it is possible to operate the window transoms/openings satisfactorily. Loose glazing in a window frame is an example.

These may offer more complex detail, but they are also less useful for home buyers in Belper deciding whether or not to purchase a house or flat.

Conservation area

Are there any considerations we would need to look into if planning to buy a building in Belper near a conservation area ?

There are nearly 10, 000 of designated conservation areas throughout the country, responsibility for which lies with local councils.

A Building Surveyors must possess knowledge of local considerations and any bearing may have on the property and its value. Property Prices will likely be inflated which is down to them being largely unspoilt However many of them are falling into have been neglected and are in a poor state for example - unauthorised alterations to the fronts, roofs and chimneys of buildings

Unauthorised changes to the property may be reported in the Belper survey but these are really more a concern for your conveyancer.
