HomeBuyer Report

Should we opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a property in Uttoxeter and of the 3, which one is the cheapest?

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

If the Uttoxeter property is a flat, or is an older property, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make any works or an extension, RICS recommend you select a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap but it will give you a thorough analysis of the Uttoxeter property's state of repair and it includes more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Damage caused by high rainfall

What impact may rainfall have on a house?

Rainfall is a fact of life in the UK, however, the impact wet conditions can have on homes is not given the attention it deserves. One indication that drainage systems are under performing is leaves or other vegetation causing a blockage. This can lead to water damage.

That is not to say that drainage problems should cause you to reconsider a purchase. They are usually a simple matter to repair, if identified early. However, if the drains are untreated or poorly maintained, the resulting damage can lower the value of the property and become increasing harder to repair.

Damage resulting from flooding

Is there a flood risk in Uttoxeter, and will the building survey search for any flood damage?

The lives of many homeowners in Uttoxeter and across the UK have suffered as a result of flooding, and house buyers and owners are understandably concerned.

As with many aspects of home ownership, flood prevention is better (and cheaper) than a cure, but a surveyor will also make recommendations to prepare for the worst. The GroundSure Flood Report is one of several risk screening reports designed to provide an overview of whether a home lies within an area of potential or previous flood risk. The building surveyor will usually recommend that the house buyers seek legal advice on any related information mentioned in the report.

Conservation area

Will there be any factors we would need to be wary of when intending to buy a converted house in Uttoxeter in conservation area, particularly with regards to property values?

There are over 9, 000 official conservation areas throughout England and Wales that are designated and monitored by local authorities. Uttoxeter surveyors need to have sufficient knowledge of relevant local area factors and any bearing may have on the building. The value of homes is usually inflated as a result of them retaining original features.

Surveyors can be expected to advise if the house is possibly classified as such and Section I of the Homebuyer Report will recommend further enquiries are raised by the solicitor or conveyancer. Unconsented developments that do not have Local Authority approval will also be advised in your survey and these will be investigated in more detail by your conveyancer. Cowlishaw & Mountford are based in 90 High Street, East Staffordshire, Staffordshire, ST14 7JD and may be prepared to advise. Tel: 01889 565211
