HomeBuyer Report

Should we opt for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a home in Capel St Mary and which is cheaper?

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

If the Capel St Mary property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make substantial modifications, it would be better that you choose a Building Survey. This option is less cheap but it does give you a thorough analysis of the Capel St Mary property's state of repair along with an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

Conservation area

Are there any things I need to be conscious of when intending to buy a converted house in Capel St Mary inside a conservation area, particularly with regards to property values?

There are 9, 300 official conservation areas throughout the country, responsibility for which lies with local councils. Your surveyor need to possess knowledge of relevant local area factors and any effect may have with the property and its value. The value of homes is, more often than not, more than prices outside the area which is down to them being preserved. However many areas have fallen into poor condition for example - the excessive amount of traffic management signs

Surveyors can be expected to report whether the location is or might be is designated and Section I of your Capel St Mary Homebuyer Report will recommend suitable questions are conducted by the conveyancing solicitor. Unapproved extensions to the property may also be advised, however these should be investigated by your lawyer.

Damage resulting from flooding

Does a residential surveyor inquire into indications of water damage?

Unfortunately, distance from water or height above sea level is no guarantee that a house will be secure against flooding damage; sensible owners and buyers in Capel St Mary are right to consider precautions. A flood risk alert service, with regular updates, is operated by the Environment Agency. In addition, the home survey may offer advice to limit damage in the event of flooding.Preventative measures can include costly but effective solutions e.g. properly constructed drainage. Flooding issues will only be raised in Section J of a home survey if the chartered surveyor observes or has reason to suspect that the home in Capel St Mary is at risk.

Timber damage by insect larvae

I am worried about pests in the home in Capel St Mary we plan to buy - What should we do?

Buyers should be aware that there is no legal obligation for the vendor to mention a pest issue.

Unfortunately, the threat posed by these to property is very real, and can be costly to fix. Signs may not be obvious, for example, often introduced to a home via luggage after a trip abroad, bed bugs can be extremely hard to remove. Treatment for insect infestation may include removal of infected furniture.
