HomeBuyer Report

Should I choose a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a property in Chesterton and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, however it is essentially the same level of survey.

If the Chesterton property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out alterations, RICS recommend you go for a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap but it does give a thorough analysis of the Chesterton property's general condition as well as including information on defects and maintenance options .

Conservation area

Will there be any concerns we would be advised to check on when buying a house in Chesterton in the vicinity of conservation area ?

There are nearly 10, 000 of conservation areas in England and Wales, responsibility for which lies with local authorities. Chesterton surveyors are required by RICS to have knowledge of local area issues and any connection they have with the home. House prices are generally more than prices outside the area due to them being unspoilt. However a growing number are falling into poor condition e.g. the huge increase in street clutter

RICS surveyors will advise you if the house is possibly is so classified and Section I Issues for your legal advisers of your Homebuyer Report will recommend further investigations are carried out during the conveyancing process. Unconsented adjustments to the building should be reported but these are really more a concern for your conveyancer.

Traditionally built property

My partner and I are purchasing an older farmhouse in Chesterton. What should be budgeted for repairs?

The age of a structure can often be problematic, and Structures built with traditional methods can be challenging to maintain. You should be aware that specialist expertise may be needed. Materials suitable for the work may also need to be sourced, particularly in the case of Chesterton listed buildings. This may result in higher ongoing expenses.

Gas flame

Does a RICS surveyor advise on the safety of the gas heaters?

The will visually examine the easily accessible parts of the gas system. This will mean gas related areas such as the location of the meter where relevant, in addition to gas associated appliances, for instance chimney breasts or flues. A Chesterton qualified surveyor will not remove the gas fittings and surveyors are not qualified to do any tests on the serviceability of the system. Gas can be fatal, if you have any concerns about gas, contact a gas safe engineer.
