HomeBuyer Report

Should I get a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a property in Barlestone and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, although it is effectively the same.

If the Barlestone property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any major works, it would be better that you choose a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it does give a more detailed analysis of the Barlestone property's general condition and it includes more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

Damage resulting from flooding

We are purchasing a property in Barlestone, does the building survey search for flooding damage?

Contrary to popular opinion, the distance a Barlestone Barlestone home is from the nearest river or coast is not the only measure of flood risk, and home buyers cannot know that insurance against flooding will continue to be available. It is easily possible to assess whether a house is susceptible to flooding via any of a number of routes. In addition, the Home Buyers Survey may advise appropriate repairs.

The GroundSure Flood Report is one of several risk screening reports designed to provide an overview of whether a Barlestone home lies within an area of potential or previous flood risk. Oral enquiries can sometimes be made of the vendor, but this information may not be accurate.

Damage caused by high rainfall

What impact does wet weather have on a house in Barlestone? Where there are issues, what should we do?

Regular rainfall is common in Barlestone and across the country, but rainfall and the effect it can have on homes are not given the attention it deserves. Signs that gutters are worth a closer look include streaks of dirt down the outside of guttering. If you suspect a problem, consider asking the surveyor for more information.

Whether buying in Barlestone or elsewhere, difficult gutters does not necessarily mean that you need to pull out. Such matters are often simple to resolve, if caught early. If poorly maintained, however, the damage will impact both the home's value, and the residents' enjoyment of the property.

Conservation area

Will there be any issues we would need to be conscious of when purchasing a period property in Barlestone inside a conservation area, particularly with regards to house prices?

There are around ten thousand of designated conservation areas in England and Wales, responsibility for which lies with the local authority. Barlestone surveyors need to possess sufficient knowledge of local considerations and the bearing may have with the building and its value. The price of property tends to be higher than non conservation area equivalents which is down to the areas being preserved.

Surveyors are trained to tell you whether the property could be so designated and the Section I Issues for your legal advisers of your Barlestone Homebuyer Report will recommend additional enquiries are conducted during the legal process. Unsympathetic changes that do not have Local Authority approval will also be advised in your survey but these are really more a concern for your legal adviser.
