HomeBuyer Report

Should I go for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a property in Presteigne and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same.

If the Presteigne property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out any alterations, you should you opt for a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap, however it will give you comprehensive details of the Presteigne property's general condition along with more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

Timber damage by insect larvae

Will bugs affect the purchase price of a property in Presteigne. What can we do?

Infestations can range from the mild and harmless, to the seriously harmful. Regrettably, infestations can impact a home's worth and carry serious health risks. An affected property may not always be easy to identify, often introduced to a home via luggage after a trip abroad, bed bugs can be extremely hard to remove. Remedies can be disruptive to residents, and may require you to move out during the work in extreme cases.

Conservation area

Will there be any factors I would need to consider if purchasing a converted house in Presteigne in conservation area ?

There are over 9, 000 of conservation areas in the UK that are designated and monitored by the local council. Your surveyor must possess knowledge of local area issues and the effect may have with the home. Values tends to be significantly higher due to them being unspoilt. However a large number have been neglected and are in a poor state for example - the huge increase in street clutter

Property surveyors can be expected to tell you if the planned purchase is possibly classified as such and Section I of the Homebuyer Report will advise further investigations are raised as part of the legal process. Out of keeping developments to the property may also be reported in the Presteigne survey, however these should be investigated by your lawyer. Caldicotts are a local firm situated at 10 South Street, Herefordshire, Herefordshire, HR6 8JB and should be prepared to help. Tel: 01568 614168

Roof defects identified during a survey

We have made an offer for a property with a converted attic in Presteigne , and we expect to budget something for roof maintenance. Will access to the loft be hard to organise?

This often causes anxiety for buyers with a roofing 'horror story' from a previous home. Many homes can be blighted by damage to the roof, including. From concrete tiles to valley gutters, every part of the roof should be reported on. Flat roofs can also be a nuisance, caused by factors like literally being flat. An incline of at least '1 to 80' is recommended.

Given the high cost of major roof repairs like asbestos cement removal, some homeowners may defer maintenance indefinitely. This makes both the cause and the consequences harder and even more expensive to treat when repairs do take place. A builder from the area with a recommendation from a friend or family member can provide a quote.
