HomeBuyer Report

Should I go for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a property in Rugby and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey and is basically the same the same level of survey.

If the Rugby property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make alterations, RICS recommend you choose a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap, but it will provide you with an in-depth analysis of the Rugby property's condition as well as advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

Other external areas of the property

On a Rugby HomeBuyer Report, what does a Condition rating 2 mean for factors covered in Section E?

The format of the RICS HomeBuyer Report is clear and easy to read. As buyers in Rugby are unlikely to be experts in local building techniques and materials themselves, the report is written with as little jargon as possible. Colour coded ratings are used to communicate the impact on the property individual defects may have. Defects which need some attention are rated 'amber' or condition rating 2, but they are not considered to be urgent or serious. They may also require frequent upkeep. This category is used for external elements that require reporting which do not fit into the other categories. Fastener problems with a conservatory roof is an example of a Section E defect.

Conservation area

Will there be any potential pitfalls I should verify when planning to buy a converted flat in Rugby in conservation area ?

There are 9, 300 of designated conservation areas in England and Wales that are designated and monitored by local authorities.

Home Buyers Surveys in Rugby need to have knowledge of local issues and any effect they have on the home and its value. The price of property is typically greater because of them being in good order. However many conservation areas are falling into poor condition e.g. the addition of PVC windows and doors

Property surveyors are trained to report if the property looks to be is so classified and the Section I Issues for your legal advisers of your Homebuyer Report will advise further investigations are carried out by the conveyancing solicitor. Unauthorised adjustments to the building will also be advised, however these should be investigated by your legal adviser. Johns Gilbert and Frankton are based in 3 Regent Place, Rugby, Warwickshire, CV21 2PJ should be able help you with further information. Tel: 01788 576 384

Damage caused by high rainfall

What effect may rainfall have on a Rugby building? Could damaged rainwater goods lower the property value?

Despite England's reputation for wet weather wet weather and the effect it can have on a property are often overlooked. If you have only been to the residence on a clear day, obvious defects may be harder to find.

Signs that drainage systems are worth a closer look include mildew in the attic. Blocked rainwater goods can result in rising damp.

Fortunately, this is generally easy to resolve, if maintenance is taken seriously. However, if the drains are not cleared out regularly, the resulting damage can lower the value of the property and become increasing harder to repair. In the worst case scenario, deterioration of a building's foundations can become fatal to its structural integrity, risking collapse.
