HomeBuyer Report

Should we book a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a property in Uxbridge Common and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, although it is basically the same the same survey.

If the Uxbridge Common property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out major works, it would be better that you commission a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap, however it will provide you with a thorough analysis of the Uxbridge Common property's general condition and it includes advice on defects and maintenance options .

Conservation area

Will there be any problems we would need to be wary of if intending to buy a converted house in Uxbridge Common near a conservation area ?

There are nearly 10, 000 official conservation areas throughout England and Wales which are overseen by the local authority. Your surveyor must possess sufficient knowledge of relevant local area issues and any connection they have on the home. Prices is generally significantly higher because of conservation areas being unspoilt. However many of them are falling into have been neglected and are in shoddy condition e.g. the unsightly effect of billboard advertising

Surveyors are expected inform you whether the property looks to be is designated and Section I of the Uxbridge Common Homebuyer Report will advise further enquiries are carried out by your legal adviser. Out of keeping changes that do not have Local Authority approval may also be commented on, however these should be investigated by your lawyer.

Damage resulting from flooding

Would our RICS surveyor look for water damage?

Contrary to popular opinion, the distance a Uxbridge Common Uxbridge Common home is from the nearest river or coast is not the only measure of flood risk, and house buyers cannot know that insurance against flooding will continue to be available. A flood warning service, with regular updates, is operated by the Environment Agency, but a surveyor will also make recommendations to prepare for the worst.

Familiarity with characteristics of the local area likely to affect Uxbridge Common property enables the RICS surveyor to surmise flooding may be a risk, even if the property has not itself flooded before. The RICS surveyor will usually recommend that the house buyers seek legal advice on any related information mentioned in the report.

No flood warnings were made for Uxbridge Common, according to the Environment Agency.
