HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to choose a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a property in Silverstone and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey and is effectively the same level of survey.

If the Silverstone property is a flat or maisonette, or is a period property, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any an extension, RICS recommend you go for a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap, however it does give you a more detailed analysis of the Silverstone property's general condition in addition to advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

Conservation area

Will there be any concerns I should be conscious of when buying a building in Silverstone inside a conservation area, particularly in respect of to property values?

There are 9, 300 of designated conservation areas in England and Wales which are overseen by the local authority. Silverstone surveyors must have local knowledge of relevant local area factors and any effect they have with the property. Property Prices are generally inflated as a result of them retaining original features.

Surveyors are trained to inform you if the home might be within a conservation area and Section I of the Homebuyer Report will recommend further investigations are conducted by the solicitor or conveyancer. Unapproved changes to the property will also be reported but these are really more a investigated by your legal representative.

Stone block wall damage

Do stone-walled properties generate lots of maintenance costs for the buyer? What problems should we be aware of, and will the surveyor offer any advice?

Britain's range of geology has encouraged the use of many varieties of stone, from Plumpton Red Lazonby Sandstone to Portland Roach Limestone. Issues which impact the lifespan of stone-built elements are as diverse as the stone varieties themselves. Regular stone describes cut stone, generally forming brick-like courses. These may require less maintenance than more irregularly built walls, but this is heavily dependent on the type of stone used.

Regular courses of ashlar (cut stone) are often used as a finish to irregular stone walls. These are employed as a decorative front, with brick or irregular walls. These walls will need frequent upkeep.

Ask you surveyor for details, but the report may specify removal of invasive plants, such as ivy.

House Prices

We are hoping to be buying a property. What will a RICS surveyor take into account when calculating house prices in Silverstone ?

There are a huge number of issues which could affect property values from kerb appeal to its proximity to other factors sought after amenities. .

In order to get a formal house valuation is to get a Homebuyer Report which includes a formal valuation as standard. Your RICS chartered surveyor will be officially part of the Valuer Registration Scheme (mandatory since 30 April 2011).

A professional qualified RICS surveyor will attend the site as well as allowing for the wealth of area influences that have a bearing on property values.
