HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a home in Wirksworth and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey, however it is basically the same the same comprehensive survey.

If the Wirksworth property is a flat or maisonette, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make any works or an extension, you should you choose a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap however it does offer a thorough analysis of the Wirksworth property's general condition as well as including advice on defects , repairs and maintenance options .

Damage resulting from flooding

Are Wirksworth properties at risk, and does a chartered surveyor consider possible flooding damage?

The Law Society estimate that 2.2m properties are in danger of flooding damage, and owning a house in or near a high-risk area can mean higher insurance premiums.

As with many aspects of home ownership, flood prevention is better (and cheaper) than a cure. In addition, the home survey may recommend maintenance.Preventative measures can include costly but effective solutions e.g. properly constructed drainage. Flooding issues will only be raised in Section J of a home survey if the house surveyor observes or has reason to suspect that the house is at risk.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Should I get a separate valuation and reinstatement cost estimate (including costs for rebuilding a boundary wall) and how does the surveyor work it out?

A Homebuyer Report in Wirksworth will include a valuation in addition to a Reinstatement Cost as part of the survey. To fully consider the value of the property your RICS valuer will relate to local property market knowledge and other considerations about the property for instance: state of repair.

The surveyor will also consider construction type and use other assumptions such as the property isn't on a land fill site. Surveyors will disregard things like furnishings.

It will be assumed that there aren't any serious legal issues such as access to the property over estate roadways. Advice should be sought from your conveyancing solicitor.

Further area conjectures, such as use of communal facilities or issues with access, are made in addition to environmental issues like local Wirksworth industrial considerations, which are also considered as part of the valuation.

A Building Survey does not include a valuation as standard. A valuation can, however, be added for a small additional fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.

Conservation area

Are there any things we would need to look out for if intending to buy a building in Wirksworth inside a conservation area ?

There are 9, 300 of designated conservation areas throughout England and Wales which are designated by the local authority. Your surveyor are required by RICS to possess sufficient knowledge of local factors and any effect they have with the property and its value. House prices are usually higher than non conservation area equivalents because of them retaining their original character. However many of them are falling into have fallen into a state of neglect for example - the huge increase in street clutter

Surveyors can be expected to tell you whether the property is possibly classified as such and Section I of a Homebuyer Report will recommend the proper questions are conducted as part of the legal process. Out of keeping changes that do not have Local Authority approval will also be noted but these are really more a concern for your conveyancer.
