HomeBuyer Report

Should we get a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a property in Charmouth and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same level of survey.

If the Charmouth property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials, then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any significant alterations, you should you choose a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap but it does provide you with comprehensive details of the Charmouth property's general condition as well as information on defects , repairs as well as maintenance options .

Conservation area

Will there be any issues we should verify when buying a period property in Charmouth near a conservation area ?

There are around ten thousand official conservation areas in England and Wales, responsibility for which lies with local councils. Surveyors in Charmouth are required by RICS to have knowledge of relevant local area factors and the bearing may have with the building. Property values is generally inflated because of them being in their original state.

Surveyors will report if the home could be within a conservation area and Section I Issues for your legal advisers of the Homebuyer Report will recommend additional enquiries are carried out by your legal adviser. Unapproved modifications to the building should be noted but these are really more a concern for the solicitor.

Timber damage by insect larvae

Will insects affect the purchase price of a home. Is a Property Survey advisable?

Infestations can range from the mild and harmless, to the seriously harmful. When purchasing a property, this matter should be borne in mind. Signs may not be obvious, for example, damage to stored clothes or carpets is a sign of a moth infestation, but may not be spotted for months. Treatment for pests may include destruction of tainted materials. Rather than pulling out, it may be possible to agree a reduction in the purchase price to cover the cost of remedy.

Building Surveys on houses

What are the benefits to get the full structural survey as opposed to a HomeBuyer Report if buying a shabby detached property?

Albeit often and incorrectly described as Full Structural Surveys by many agents and buyers - they are now defunct and have been renamed Building Surveys When looking into purchasing an altered Charmouth home like a dilapidated house - the Building Survey is the most suitable home survey. This non prescribed format of report portrays crucial insight on the homes construction in addition to any important technical details, following a thorough inspection of the inside and outside of the house. Permanent external structures or buildings will, in addition, be reported on.
