HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to have a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a house in Arnside and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey, although it is basically the same the same survey.

If the Arnside property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out any major works, RICS advise you commission a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it will give you comprehensive details of the Arnside property's state of repair and it includes information on defects , repairs as well as maintenance options .

For more detailed advice you can get an instant Arnside House Survey Quote on our website or call 0800 038 6667 to speak to one of our advisers.

Conservation area

Will there be any concerns we would need to check on if buying a house in Arnside in conservation area, particularly in relation to property values?

There are around ten thousand of designated conservation areas throughout England and Wales which are designated by local councils. Your surveyor must have sufficient knowledge of local factors and the relation may have on the property and its value. Values will likely be significantly higher owing to the areas resisting change.

Surveyors are trained to advise you if the planned purchase looks like it may be in a conservation area and Section I of the Arnside Homebuyer Report will advise additional due diligence and enquiries are carried out by your legal representation. Unauthorised adjustments to the building should be noted but these are really more a concern for your legal representative. Oldfields Solicitors are based in 18-20 Lancaster Road, South Lakeland, Cumbria, LA5 9LD might be happy to give you some pointers. Tel: 01524 733926

Building Surveys on flats 1

When acquiring a defective Victorian flat home in Arnside, should I get a full structural survey?

The Full Structural Survey is now known as a Building Survey. It is the right property survey when buying a modified flat, for example a tatty flat. A Building Survey should outline comprehensive and relevant information concerning the homes construction materials and any technical details a thorough visual inspection of the inside and outside of the main building. Also flats add complexity. meaning a surveyor is only able to advise on the actual flat the surveyor may give details of communal parts like such as shared roof spaces. For a more detailed comparison of the differences between surveys please read here.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

I'm confused - which surveys include a valuation and reinstatement cost estimate (including costs for rebuilding a boundary wall) and how is it calculated?

The Homebuyer Report contains a surveyor valuation as well as a reinstatement (rebuilding) cost estimate as part of the report. To estimate the valuation your chartered surveyor will take into account experience of property in Arnside and other things about the property for instance: style of architecture The RICS surveyor will also consider certain fixtures and fittings and use key assumptions such as it is connected to mains services.

A Building Survey does not include a valuation as standard. A valuation can, however, be added for a nominal fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out. RICS valuations assume that there are no serious legal issues for example your potential purchase is sold with vacant possession. These will be investigated by your legal representative.

Further area assumptions, such as any cost of repairs being shared amongst tenants or service connections, are made in addition to any Arnside environmental issues like flightpaths, which will also be factored in.
