HomeBuyer Report

Should we go for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a home in Bridgnorth and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, however it is basically the same the same comprehensive survey.

If the Bridgnorth property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any an extension, RICS recommend you choose a Building Survey. This option is less cheap, however it does give you a more detailed analysis of the Bridgnorth property's general condition in addition to information on defects and maintenance options .

Conservation area

Are there any concerns I would need to check on if intending to buy a property in Bridgnorth inside a conservation area, particularly in respect of to property values?

There are nearly 10, 000 official conservation areas throughout England and Wales which are governed by the local authority.

Home Buyers Surveys in Bridgnorth need to possess relevant knowledge of relevant local considerations and the connection they have on the home. The price of property is usually higher than non conservation area equivalents due to the areas being unspoilt.

RICS surveyors are trained to report if the property might be classified as such and Section I of your Homebuyer Report will suggest additional enquiries are carried out by your legal representation.

Unconsented changes to the property will also be reported but these are really more a investigated by your legal representative. Street and Company Solicitors are a local firm situated at 9 Firtrees, Shropshire, Shropshire, WV15 5EA should be happy to give you some pointers. Tel: 0845 544 0499

Damage resulting from flooding

Does a building survey look for flooding damage?

Flooding has blighted the lives of thousands of owners in Bridgnorth and across the country, and it is not clear that reasonably-priced flooding insurance will be available in years to come. A flood warning service, with regular updates, is operated by the Environment Agency. In addition, the Building Survey may outline a strategy for flood-related upkeep.Section J of the survey report contains details, where applicable, of flooding risks found within the boundaries of the Bridgnorth property or on adjacent sites. The surveyor will usually recommend that the property buyers seek legal advice on any related information mentioned in the report.

Asbestos roof tiles

The estate agent has mentioned there might be asbestos wall panelling concealed in the flat. What are the issues with asbestos?

Asbestos is a deleterious fibrous structured mineral. There are over 60 types, 6 of which were used in the UK and were commonly found in the building materials including gutters. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has good sound absorption properties, it may be found in eaves. Technically all forms are carcinogenic and can lead to lung cancer following prolonged exposure.

If discovered, one must be careful never to move the asbestos and expert advice should be sought urgently. Surveyors cannot confirm the existence asbestos on a survey. They will mention potential asbestos and will suggest further investigation.
