HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to select a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a house in Broughton Astley and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey, although it is basically the same the same.

If the Broughton Astley property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any major works, you should you book a Building Survey. This option is less cheap, however it does provide you with comprehensive details of the Broughton Astley property's condition as well as information on defects as well as maintenance options .

Damage caused by high rainfall

Is rain an issue in Broughton Astley? Also, if there is necessary work, will they be inconvenient to fix?

I find it odd that the effect which rain has on property in Broughton Astley is ignored. Signs that gutters are at risk include mildew or damp in the roof. If you have doubts, consider asking the surveyor for more information.

The good news is that drainage problems are quite easy to remedy. If left untreated, however, the damage will impact both the home's value, and the residents' enjoyment of the property.

Conservation area

Are there any considerations we would need to consider if purchasing an extended house in Broughton Astley in a conservation area?

There are nearly 10, 000 of designated conservation areas in England and Wales which are overseen by the local council. Broughton Astley surveyors must possess local knowledge of local issues and any relation may have with the building. Property values will probably be higher than non conservation area equivalents due to them retaining their original character. However many of them are falling into have been neglected and are in disrepair e.g. the excessive amount of traffic management signs

Property surveyors will advise you whether the property looks to be so designated and Section I Issues for your legal advisers of your Homebuyer Report will advise additional due diligence and enquiries are conducted by the conveyancing solicitor. Out of keeping developments to the building will also be reported, however these should be concern for the solicitor.

Stone block wall damage

Can structures built with stone generate lots of maintenance costs for purchasers? Are there specific factors to consider, and will the surveyor offer any advice?

Stone walls often appear more robust than they are. Buyers should also be aware that the potential severity of issues like staining will vary with the particular type of stone. Stone quarried in the area is common to local homes, but some do also feature cut stone brought from outside the county. Different stone types will also decay a different rates based on environmental conditions. For example, slate is far more water-resistant than many other stones. Stone walls require regular maintenance, such as using traditional techniques when making repairs to the fabric of older buildings. If you are planning to renovate, consider that services to match stone types are available. Contact the British Geological Survey for more detail. Locally mined or quarried stone may also be available.
