HomeBuyer Report

Should we book a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a property in St Nicholas and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey and is essentially the same.

If the St Nicholas property is a flat, or is an older property, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make major works on the St Nicholas property, you should you carry out a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap, however it will give comprehensive details of the St Nicholas property's condition along with advice on defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

Conservation area

Will there be any factors we would be advised to on guard for when intending to buy a home in St Nicholas inside a conservation area ?

There are many thousands of conservation areas in the UK that are designated and monitored by local authorities. Your surveyor must possess knowledge of relevant local factors and the relation they have with the home. Property values will be higher than non conservation area equivalents which is down to them retaining original features. However many conservation areas have fallen into disrepair e.g. ugly satellite dishes

Surveyors are trained to report whether the building is or might be classified as such and the Section I Issues for your legal advisers of your Homebuyer Report will suggest further investigations are carried out by your solicitor. Unapproved extensions to the building should be commented on but these are really more a investigated by your lawyer.

Traditionally built property

I am buying a renovated farmhouse in St Nicholas. What consequences will the construction have on repairs?

Some purchasers would like to own a old, characterful home one day. For houses in St Nicholas built before the 20th Century, age, however, can create difficulties for an owner, and Homes constructed with traditional methods can be expensive to maintain. It is often the case that specialist expertise is necessary, and it could also be necessary to find Traditional building materials, which could end up costing more than initially budgeted.

Gas flame

Will a qualified surveyor look at the condition of the gas flues?

A chartered surveyor will visually examine any easily accessible parts of the gas system. This will mean gas related areas such as whether the mains is connected at the home, as well as gas connected fixtures like chimney linings. Your St Nicholas surveyor will not remove any external fittings or housings nor will they carry out any tests on the serviceability of the system. Gas can be hazardous, if you have any worries about gas fittings, call a gas engineer.
