HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to go for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a property in Caldicot and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same level of survey.

If the Caldicot property is a flat, or is 100 or more years old, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out substantial modifications, you should you carry out a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap, but it does give you a more detailed analysis of the Caldicot property's condition as well as advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

Conservation area

Are there any factors I would need to be conscious of if intending to buy a converted flat in Caldicot in conservation area, particularly in respect of to property values?

There are around ten thousand of conservation areas in the UK, responsibility for which lies with local councils.

A Building Surveyors need to have sufficient knowledge of local issues and the bearing they have on the building. Property Prices will probably be higher than non conservation area equivalents which is down to conservation areas being in good order.

Surveyors will advise you if the house looks to be is so classified and the Section I Issues for your legal advisers of a Caldicot Homebuyer Report will suggest suitable questions are conducted during the legal process. Unconsented adjustments that do not have Local Authority approval may be advised but these are really more a investigated by your conveyancer.

Conservatory

On the HomeBuyer Report what effect will a an amber light rating have on 'E7 - Conservatory and porches' ?

An example defect for this is a conservatory floor suffering wet rot or other damage. This section covers conservatories and porches. Inappropriate use of internal doors in doorways leading outside will be considered too.

Defects which need some attention are rated 'amber' or condition rating 2. The condition of this particular aspect of the property is unlikely to require urgent work, however. Not inspected' is used to indicate those subsections of Section E which do not apply to the house. The HomeBuyer Report has a standard format, which the surveyor will complete according to the nuances of the particular house, omitting sections as necessary.
