HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to have a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a home in Oakwood and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey, however it is essentially the same comprehensive survey.

If the Oakwood property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any alterations on the Oakwood property, RICS recommend you carry out a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap, however it will give a thorough analysis of the Oakwood property's general condition and it includes an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

Timber damage by insect larvae

My husband spotted signs of vermin in the bathroom - Is a Building Survey advisable?

Infestations can range from the mild and harmless, to the seriously harmful. This problem should be taken seriously. It is vital that buyers consider this oft-overlooked aspect when making an offer.

Signs may not be evident for weeks or months. For example, often introduced to a home via luggage after a trip abroad, bed bugs can be extremely hard to remove. Treatment for vermin may include destruction of tainted materials. If you believe cluster flies, or any pest, may be present, request that your surveyor pay close attention during the survey.

Traditionally built property

We are purchasing in Oakwood. What will we need to think about when purchasing an old building? What consequences will the residence's box frame structure have on regular maintenance?

Some buyers in Oakwood would be interested in owning property with real personality. For traditionally-built Oakwood property, age, however, can occasionally give buyers second thoughts. Property employing traditional methods can be a chore to repair. You should consider that expert knowledge may be needed. Construction materials, such as stone quarried in the Oakwood area, may also need to be sourced, particularly in the case of Oakwood listed buildings. This may result in higher ongoing expenses.

Conservation area

Will there be any factors we would need to consider when intending to buy a flat in Oakwood in conservation area ?

There are nearly 10, 000 of conservation areas throughout the country which are governed by the local authority. Oakwood surveyors are required by RICS to have relevant knowledge of relevant local factors and the connection they have on the property and its value. The value of homes is generally more than prices outside the area owing to them being in their original state.

RICS surveyors will note if the planned purchase is/might be in a conservation area and Section I Issues for your legal advisers of the Homebuyer Report will advise suitable questions are conducted by your solicitor. Out of keeping adjustments to the property should be reported in the Oakwood survey but these are really more a concern for the lawyer.
