HomeBuyer Report

Should we select a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a property in Trelogan and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey, however it is basically the same the same survey.

If the Trelogan property is a flat or maisonette, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make any alterations, it would be better that you carry out a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap, however it does offer exhaustive analysis of the Trelogan property's state of repair and it includes information on defects , repairs as well as maintenance options .

Conservation area

Are there any considerations I would be advised to on guard for when planning to buy a converted flat in Trelogan in a conservation area?

There are over 9, 000 of designated conservation areas in England and Wales, responsibility for which lies with local councils. Your surveyor are required by RICS to have relevant knowledge of relevant local considerations and the connection may have on the building and its value. The price of property is usually inflated as a result of them being in good order. However many conservation areas have fallen into shoddy condition for example - unauthorised alterations to the fronts, roofs and chimneys of buildings

Surveyors will note whether the property looks like it may be is so classified and Section I of your Homebuyer Report will advise additional enquiries are raised by the conveyancing solicitor. Unapproved developments to the property will also be advised in your survey, however these should be concern for your legal adviser.

Damage caused by high rainfall

Is rainfall an issue in Trelogan? Can damaged guttering decrease our property's value?

Despite England's reputation for wet weather this issue is rarely considered properly by buyers. If you have only seen the house in warm weather, problems are unlikely to be visible.

Signs that drainage systems are at risk include streaks of dirt down the outside of guttering. This could then result in overflowing or blocked sewage.

That is not to say that drainage problems should cause you to reconsider a purchase. They are usually a simple matter to resolve, if caught early. Where this is poorly maintained, the damage becomes increasing costly to remedy.

Timber damage by insect larvae

We are buying in Trelogan, and think we saw signs of an infestation in the living room. How do we investigate further?

Pests like vermin may sometimes seem a small, even irrelevant, matter when buying in Trelogan. Unfortunately, the impact to a house and its inhabitants can put your health in danger and affect its value. It is vital that buyers consider this oft-overlooked aspect when making an offer.

Signs may not be evident for weeks or months, mice are able to squeeze through even small gaps and holes, and quickly spread disease through their droppings. Treatment for an infestation may include chemical treatment. Rather than pulling out, it may be possible to agree a reduction in the purchase price to cover the cost of remedy.
