HomeBuyer Report

Should we have a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a home in Nelson and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, although it is basically the same the same.

If the Nelson property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction, then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any major works, it would be better that you opt for a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it does provide you with comprehensive details of the Nelson property's state of repair as well as including an opinion on defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

The rat-trap bond walls on this Nelson residence has deteriorated - what should we do? Will it make a difference if render is applied?

Nelson flats with brick walls can indicate a range of defects. This could be anything from vertical cracking to erosion. Your property surveyor will cover these in his report along with recommendations.

A defect often found is frost damage, which over time will cause bricks and mortar to disintegrate entirely. For more information, contact a local builder, Green Steve of Lilac Cottage/Fryern Ct Rd, Burgate, Fordingbridge, SP6 1LZ on 07944 572460.

Nelson home purchasers may need to consider that broad range of techniques have been used for centuries. For example, running, or stretcher, bond. Contact a specialist for more information if this is of interest.

Overgrown flat roof with weeds

On a HomeBuyer Report carried out in Nelson what are common an red light rating defects for 'E2 - Roof coverings' ?

Flat and sloping roofs are comprehensively checked, if these parts of the property are easy to view or easy to access. Excessive seam runout on a bitumen roof would be reported here, for example.

A condition rating of three is used to emphasise the most crucial repairs. In some cases, such a rating may indicate further expert opinion is needed before an accurate statement can be given.

Conservation area

Will there be any things we need to be conscious of when planning to buy a property in Nelson in the vicinity of Whitefield conservation area ?

Whitefield is in a conservation area and has been classed as very bad by English Heritage, with low vulnerability and improving significantly. For detailed information see their or contact the conservation area administrator. There are around ten thousand official conservation areas in the UK which are governed by local councils. Whitefield is designated by Pendle Borough Council at Market Street, Nelson, Lancashire, BB9 7LG. Call 01282 661 661. Your surveyor must have sufficient knowledge of relevant local area issues and the relation they have on the property and its value. House prices will likely be inflated which is down to the areas retaining original features.

Property surveyors can be expected to advise you whether the building is or might be in a conservation area and Section I Issues for your legal advisers of your Nelson Homebuyer Report will suggest further investigations are raised during the legal process. Out of keeping adjustments that do not have Local Authority approval may be reported in the Nelson survey but these are really more a investigated by your legal representative.
