HomeBuyer Report

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

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey but is effectively the same survey.

If the Sedbergh property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out an extension on the Sedbergh property, RICS advise you commission a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap however it does offer exhaustive analysis of the Sedbergh property's state of repair along with an opinion on defects , repairs as well as maintenance options .

For more detailed advice you can get a Sedbergh Survey Quote or call us 0800 038 6667 to speak to a member of our team.

Gas flame

Does a qualified surveyor examine the serviceability of the gas supply?

The qualified surveyor will locate and visually look at the easily accessible parts of the gas system. This will include whether the mains is connected for example, in addition to gas affiliated gas fittings in the home such as ventilation of flue (if blocked).

Conservation area

Are there any things we need to check out if intending to buy a building in Sedbergh near a conservation area ?

There are thousands official conservation areas in the UK which are designated by the local authority.

House prices are generally significantly higher due to the areas being in their original state.

Surveyors are trained to advise if the home is possibly in a conservation area and Section I of the Sedbergh Homebuyer Report will suggest the proper questions are conducted by the solicitor or conveyancer.
