HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a property in Great Coates and which is cheaper?

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

If the Great Coates property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out significant alterations, RICS recommend you carry out a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it does offer exhaustive analysis of the Great Coates property's condition as well as information on defects and maintenance options .

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

The brick walls on this Victorian property is badly worn - what should we do? Are brick walls hard to repair?

Brick-walled Great Coates residences can indicate several common problems. This could be anything from sulphate attack to lack of a damp proof course. For instance, rapidly deteriorating cement mortar, caused by sulphate attack. This may require outright demolition of the wall, if discovered and should be taken very seriously.

A good selection of methods and styles of brick building have been a feature of house construction in this country for 100s of years. Maintenance work may be more time-consuming and costly than you assume. .

The consequences of amateur repairs can either worsen the problem, or create entirely new defects in a brick wall. Professional advice can reduce the risk of this.

Building Surveys on apartments

Is it worth paying more for a full structural survey when carrying out due diligence on an apartment in Great Coates?

Building Survey is now the correct term for the Full Structural Survey following its renaming a while ago by RICS. This is now the correct property survey when buying an unusual property such as an extended house. It will give full and crucial professional advice on the buildings standard of construction and repair in conjunction with any technical details, following a thorough inspection of the accessible areas of the house. Check out the differences between HomeBuyer Reports and Building Surveys see here.

Conservation area

Are there any things I would need to be aware of when buying a property in Great Coates near a conservation area ?

There are over 9, 000 official conservation areas throughout England and Wales that are designated and monitored by local authorities. Great Coates surveyors are required by RICS to have relevant knowledge of local area issues and any relation may have on the home and its value. Values will likely be greater because of them retaining original features.

Property surveyors are expected advise if the home looks like it may be classified as such and Section I of a Great Coates Homebuyer Report will recommend further investigations are carried out by your solicitor. Unapproved changes to the property may also be advised but these are really more a concern for your lawyer.
