HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to have a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a property in Coleford and of the 3, which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey but is effectively the same.

If the Coleford property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any major works, you should you carry out a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap however it will offer comprehensive details of the Coleford property's general condition and it includes more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Roof defects identified during a survey

The person in the flat below said that cracked supports had been a concern, and we expect to budget something for roof maintenance. What advice would the property surveyor in Coleford give in their report?

Properties in Coleford in otherwise fine condition can be hiding serious damage to the roof. From decking to ridge flashing, many parts of the roof and loft must be reviewed. Flat roofs can also be a nuisance, caused by factors like being literally flat, as opposed to on a small incline so that water can drain correctly.

It may be inconvenient to employ scaffolding to perform repairs, especially in the busy parts of Coleford, but it is a health and safety necessity. A quote for the work could be sought from a reliable contractor.

Shocking Electrics

When we went to see the period property we expect to move into, the agent said that there are doubts as to then safety of the electrical system - will the Coleford surveyor go into detail on the electrical system?

When preparing a Home Buyers Survey in Coleford a RICS surveyor will usually add detail on the electrics if it looks like they are in a poor state of repair. A Chartered surveyor is required to focus on concerns such as verifying the type of electrical fittings in shower rooms or checking the condition of any visible wiring a sample of light fittings. Verifying the location of the documentation from a test on the condition of the electrical wiring conducted by an electrician should usually be part of the survey.

The IEE (Institute of Electrical Engineers) advocate a Periodic Inspection Report should be carried out at least every 10 years (5 if renting out).

Conservation area

Are there any factors I should check out if buying a home in Coleford inside a conservation area ?

There are many thousands of designated conservation areas in the UK which are governed by the local authority.

Home Buyers Surveys in Coleford are required by RICS to have relevant knowledge of local factors and the connection they have with the property and its value. House prices will likely be higher because of them being largely unspoilt

RICS surveyors are trained to report whether the property is possibly in a conservation area and Section I of the Coleford Homebuyer Report will recommend suitable questions are carried out as part of the legal process. Unconsented extensions that do not have Local Authority approval should be reported in the Coleford survey, however these should be investigated by your legal adviser.
