HomeBuyer Report

Should we select a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a property in Axminster and which one is cheaper?

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

If the Axminster property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any major works, RICS recommend you go for a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it does give you comprehensive details of the Axminster property's general condition and it includes information on defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

For more information you can get a Axminster House Survey Quote on our website or call us 0800 038 6667 to speak to our survey team.

Traditionally built property

We are buying an older dovecot in Axminster. Will the property's age be a concern?

Use of traditional methods can often be problematic, and Axminster houses featuring traditional methods can be challenging to upkeep. You should bear in mind that expert knowledge may be needed, and it could also be necessary to find Traditional building materials, which could mean expensive ongoing repairs.If the home you are buying may require specialist maintenance, contact the property surveyor for more detail. Built between 1425 and 1457, Church of St Mary the Virgin is an example of a traditional church in Axminster.

Conservation area

Are there any factors we would need to verify if purchasing a building in Axminster near a conservation area ?

There are thousands of conservation areas in the UK that are designated and monitored by the local council. Your surveyor are required by RICS to possess local knowledge of local issues and the bearing they have with the property. The price of property will probably be inflated due to conservation areas retaining their original character.

Property surveyors are expected advise you whether the location might be classified as such and Section I Issues for your legal advisers of the Homebuyer Report will recommend further enquiries are carried out during the legal process. Unconsented adjustments to the property should be reported but these are really more a investigated by your legal representative. Austen Whetham & Guest are a local firm situated at 21 South Street, West Dorset, Dorset, DT6 3NR and may be able to help. Tel: 01308 422236
