HomeBuyer Report

Should we have a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a house in Poringland and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey, although it is effectively the same.

If the Poringland property is a flat, or is an older property, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out substantial modifications, it would be better that you opt for a Building Survey instead. This survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it will give you a thorough analysis of the Poringland property's condition and it includes an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

Gas flame

Does the qualified surveyor go into detail on the safety of the gas installations?

Your qualified RICS surveyor will locate and visually survey any easily accessible parts of the gas system. The survey will include the mains gas installation for instance, as well as gas connected fixtures, for instance the possibility of asbestos. The Poringland RICS surveyor won't actually remove any fittings nor will they run any tests of any kind on the serviceability of the system. Needless to say, gas is potentially unsafe, if you have any worries about gas fittings, call a gas engineer.

The 1998 Gas Safety Regulations stipulate landlords must to complete appliance and installation inspections annually and punishments for failure to comply include heavy fines or imprisonment .

Conservation area

Will there be any concerns we would be advised to be wary of when purchasing a house in Poringland near a conservation area ?

There are nearly 10, 000 official conservation areas throughout England and Wales that are designated and monitored by the local council. Surveyors in Poringland need to possess sufficient knowledge of relevant local considerations and any connection they have with the home and its value. House prices will likely be more than prices outside the area owing to the areas being unspoilt. However many have been neglected and are in shoddy condition for example - the removal front garden walls

Property surveyors can be expected to advise if the planned purchase is or might be so designated and Section I of your Poringland Homebuyer Report will advise the proper questions are raised as part of the legal process. Unauthorised developments to the building will also be reported but these are really more a concern for your conveyancer.

Damage caused by high rainfall

Should we investigate guttering? Could it affect the property value?

Rainfall is a fact of life in the UK, however, the effect which wet weather has on a structure is rarely paid due attention. If you have visited the property on a sunny day, issues may have been hidden. Signs that gutters are damaged include a waterlogged garden. Poor drainage can lead to fungi or mould which can be a health risk.

These issues are, generally speaking, straightforward to repair fairly cheaply. If not cleared out regularly, however, the damage will impact both the home's value, and the residents' enjoyment of the property.
