Conservation area

Will there be any concerns we would need to on guard for when buying an extended house in Windmill Hill in conservation area ?

There are over 9, 000 of designated conservation areas throughout the country which are overseen by local authorities. Your surveyor are required by RICS to have knowledge of local factors and any effect may have on the building and its value.

Property surveyors are trained to advise if the property looks to be is so classified and Section I of your Homebuyer Report will advise the proper questions are raised by the solicitor or conveyancer. Unconsented changes to the property will also be commented on, however these should be concern for your legal adviser.

Traditionally built property

We are purchasing a converted cow-house. Will maintenance costs be higher?

You should consider that specialist expertise may be needed. Especially for a home in one of Windmill Hill's conservation areas, Materials suitable for the work may be required.

Roof defects identified during a survey

Our agent said that the had been a problem with bowing, and we expect to budget something for roof maintenance. What should we do about roof repairs?

This is often asked by buyers who know that homes could unfortunately be experiencing issues with the roof like. From sheathing to ridge flashing, many parts of the roof and loft must be reviewed. Flat roofs are also known for the trouble they can cause, often the result of a slope of less than 12 to 15 degrees.

The maintenance of a roof can be the cause of serious accidents, which is why modern contractors refuse to work without scaffolding. A local roofing specialist with a recommendation from a friend or family member can provide a quote.
