HomeBuyer Report

Should I get a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a house in Binstead and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey but is basically the same the same comprehensive survey.

If the Binstead property is a flat or maisonette, or is a period property, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make significant alterations, RICS recommend you commission a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap however it will offer a thorough analysis of the Binstead property's state of repair as well as including more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

Traditionally built property

What should we consider when purchasing a building constructed in 1750 in Binstead? Will the age of the residence be an issue?

Some buyers in Binstead would be interested in owning a old, characterful home one day. For houses in Binstead built before the 20th Century, age, however, can worry purchasers. Buildings built with traditional methods can be unexpectedly hard to maintain. You should consider that specialist expertise may be needed, and it could also be necessary to find Traditional building materials.

Conservation area

Will there be any concerns we would be advised to consider when intending to buy a converted house in Binstead inside a conservation area?

There are 9, 300 official conservation areas throughout the country which are overseen by the local council. Your surveyor must possess relevant knowledge of local issues and the connection they have on the building. House prices are usually higher than non conservation area equivalents due to them being in their original state. However a growing number have fallen into a state for example - unauthorised alterations to the fronts, roofs and chimneys of buildings

Surveyors can be expected to note whether the location is or might be is designated and Section I of the Homebuyer Report will recommend additional enquiries are carried out as part of the legal process. Unconsented extensions to the building will also be advised in your survey and these will be investigated in more detail by your lawyer.

Timber damage by insect larvae

My husband spotted signs of an infestation in the study. Should we get a chartered surveyor?

Be aware that your solicitor's forms may not ask about this issue. Unfortunately, the impact to a house and its inhabitants can carry serious health risks and affect its value. It may not be obvious that a building is suffering a severe pest problem, as evidence can be overlooked, bed bugs do not live in mattresses, as in commonly thought, but in cracks in the bed frame, or around the room, and will feed on the host at night. Remedies to vermin can include insecticides or removal of infected furniture.
