HomeBuyer Report

Should we get a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a property in Washwood Heath and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same level of survey.

If the Washwood Heath property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make any alterations, RICS recommend you book a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap, however it does provide you with comprehensive details of the Washwood Heath property's state of repair along with advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

Traditionally built property

I am buying an older farmhouse in Washwood Heath. What impact will the wooden structure have on regular maintenance?

Some buyers would be interested in owning a old, characterful home one day. Vernacular, or traditional, architecture, however, can worry purchasers. Homes built using traditional methods can be costly to maintain. You should be aware that specialist knowledge may be needed. Especially for Washwood Heath listed buildings, Traditional building materials may be required. This may make asking the seller for more detail about their current maintenance regime a good idea. Contact your surveyor for more information.

Other external areas of the property

In the HomeBuyer Report, what will 'E9 - Other' include?

The home buyer report is intended to be easy to read and understand, with a minimum of technical jargon. Three colour coded ratings give an understanding of the seriousness of any issues included in the survey. In some cases, an element covered under Section E may be marked as NI, or 'Not inspected'. The HomeBuyer Report has a standard format, which the surveyor will complete according to the nuances of the particular Washwood Heath house or flat, omitting sections as necessary.

The part of the HomeBuyer Report mentions other aspects that do not fit elsewhere in Section E. Leaning, settled and heaved columns forming the structure of a conservatory or porch is an example.

Conservation area

Are there any things I would need to look into when planning to buy a house in Washwood Heath in the vicinity of conservation area ?

There are thousands official conservation areas in the UK which are designated by local councils.

Your surveyor must have local knowledge of local area factors and the bearing may have with the property. Values is usually greater owing to them being largely unspoilt However a growing number are falling into shoddy condition for example - the addition of PVC windows and doors

Property surveyors are trained to advise if the planned purchase could be classified as such and the Section I Issues for your legal advisers of a Homebuyer Report will recommend suitable questions are raised by the conveyancing solicitor. Unapproved extensions that do not have Local Authority approval may be noted, however these should be investigated by your lawyer.
