HomeBuyer Report

Should we go for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a property in Kendal and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey but is effectively the same survey.

If the Kendal property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction, then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make substantial modifications, RICS advise you select a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap but it will provide you with a thorough analysis of the Kendal property's general condition in addition to advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

Stone block wall damage

Do stone-walled property generate lots of maintenance costs for buyers? What should we look in to, and what does the survey cover?

Britain's range of geology has encouraged the use of many varieties of stone, from Lees Endcliffe Sandstone to Swaledale Fossil Limestone. Issues including cracks affect many stone-walled buildings.

Regular stone walls are built with prepared or cut stone, called ashlar, and are often easier to maintain than irregularly built walls as stones are less likely to come loose or the mortar to decay. Both regular or irregular stone can be mortared with lime-based mortar. This may also require careful attention. These walls will need frequent upkeep.

Ask you surveyor for details, but the report may specify repointing of loose or crumbling mortar.

Ask your surveyor for clarification if you are in doubt as to likely maintenance, particularly if the house in question is listed or located in a conservation area.

House Prices

Is £227, 893 within the right sort of area price to be buying a detached property in LA9 in Kendal for and what will the Kendal surveyor evaluate in the process of a survey ?

There are many factors that can add to or subtract from property values e.g. the existence of any restrictions over use of the property or the number and size of bedrooms at the home. It is useful to weigh up prices against prices achieved in the area for similar houses.

The average house price paid between Jul and Oct 2012 was £207, 693, which is £20, 200 less than the amount you are intending to pay. The combined house/flat average was £195, 481. Edge Bank Farmhouse, Skelsmergh, Kendal, South Lakeland, Cumbria, LA8 9AS a detached property sold for £155, 000 .

The only way for you to get an accurate and professional house valuation is with a Homebuyer Report which includes a formal valuation by default.

The RICS surveyor will visit the property as well as allowing for the myriad of area items that can affect house prices.

Conservation area

Are there any issues we need to on guard for if buying an extended house in Kendal near a conservation area ?

There are over 9, 000 of designated conservation areas in the UK which are overseen by local councils. Kendal surveyors are required by RICS to possess relevant knowledge of local area issues and any relation they have with the building and its value. House prices will likely be higher than non conservation area equivalents owing to them being in their original state.

Surveyors are trained to tell you whether the location is/might be classified as such and Section I Issues for your legal advisers of your Homebuyer Report will recommend the proper questions are carried out by the solicitor or conveyancer. Out of keeping developments to the building should be noted but these are really more a investigated by the solicitor.
