HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to choose a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a property in Quorn and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey but is basically the same the same survey.

If the Quorn property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any an extension on the property, RICS advise you book a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap, however it does provide you with comprehensive details of the Quorn property's condition as well as more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

Conservation area

Will there be any problems I would be advised to on guard for when planning to buy a house in Quorn in conservation area ?

There are around ten thousand of designated conservation areas in the UK which are governed by local councils. Quorn surveyors are required by RICS to possess local knowledge of local area factors and the relation they have on the home and its value. Property Prices are typically higher than non conservation area equivalents due to them being in good order. However many areas are falling into shoddy condition e.g. the unsightly effect of billboard advertising

Surveyors are expected advise you if the property looks to be classified as such and the Section I Issues for your legal advisers of the Homebuyer Report will recommend suitable questions are raised as part of the legal process. Unauthorised modifications that do not have Local Authority approval may also be noted in the survey, however these should be concern for your lawyer.

Timber damage by insect larvae

We are buying in Quorn, and think we saw signs of vermin in the bathroom. What can we do?

Houses are generally free of infestations, but it is inadvisable to risk buying without more information if you have suspicions. This danger should be taken seriously. Signs may not be obvious, sliverfish (lepisma saccharina), are rarely visible during the day. They will digest paper and wallpaper paste, but are more a symptom of damp than a serious problem themselves. As some infestations can be very stubborn, knowing the risks, and chance of success before you buy is essential. The RICS surveyor may include notes on any signs of vermin or other pests in their report. It is, however, advisable that specific worries you may have be raised ASAP.
