HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to get a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a home in Thame and which one is the cheapest?

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

If the Thame property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out any works or an extension on the Thame property, RICS recommend you carry out a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap, but it does give you exhaustive analysis of the Thame property's state of repair along with advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Traditionally built property

I am purchasing a 16th Century cottage in Thame. What should be budgeted for upkeep?

Many purchasers have considered buying a home with character, such as a coach house or converted stable. Vernacular architecture, however, can worry purchasers. Properties featuring traditional methods can be difficult to maintain. You should be aware that specialist knowledge may be needed. Traditional building materials may also need to be sourced, particularly in the case of listed property. This may result in longer-term maintenance obligations. If you have doubts, speak to the RICS surveyor for more detail. Erected between 1300 and 1410, 7 Buttermarket in Thame is a traditional open hall of the time.

Conservation area

Will there be any problems we should on guard for if purchasing a converted flat in Thame near a conservation area, particularly in respect of to house prices?

There are over 9, 000 official conservation areas throughout England and Wales which are governed by the local authority.

A Building Surveyors need to possess sufficient knowledge of relevant local considerations and the connection they have with the building and its value. The value of homes will likely be greater because of the areas being largely unspoilt

Surveyors can be expected to note whether the location looks like it may be classified as such and Section I of the Homebuyer Report will advise suitable questions are conducted during the conveyancing process. Unapproved adjustments to the building may also be reported but these are really more a concern for your conveyancer. Read Cooper Ltd are based in Dorchester House, South Oxfordshire, Oxfordshire, OX9 2DL will be happy to help. Tel: 01844 260038

Gas flame

Does a chartered surveyor give details on the safety of the gas heaters?

A local surveyor will visually inspect any easily accessible parts of the gas system. The survey will include gas (and oil heaters) at the building, as well as gas associated installations like chimney linings. External fittings won't be taken off. Gas is potentially hazardous, should there be any worries about gas fittings at all, , call a gas engineer.
