HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to book a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a house in Clowne and which one is the cheapest?

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

If the Clowne property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction, you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any works or an extension, RICS recommend you book a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap but it does give you exhaustive analysis of the Clowne property's state of repair and it includes an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

Conservation area

Will there be any problems we would need to look into if planning to buy an extended house in Clowne inside a conservation area ?

There are thousands official conservation areas throughout the country which are overseen by local authorities. Clowne surveyors are required by RICS to possess local knowledge of local issues and the connection may have with the home and its value. House prices are generally enhanced owing to them resisting change. However a large number are falling into shoddy condition e.g. out of keeping extensions

Surveyors are trained to note if the home looks to be is designated and Section I of your Homebuyer Report will advise additional due diligence and enquiries are raised during the legal process. Unconsented modifications to the property will also be reported in the Clowne survey, however these should be investigated by your legal adviser.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

We want to put in an offer on a place in Clowne. Is there any Scottish bond maintenance tips we should be aware of?? Will it make a difference if render is applied?

Brick-constructed residential property feature several advantages. However, they can also experience numerous defects. These can include weathering or cracks.

A defect often found is thermal or other movement. Often vertical cracks appear above the level of the DPC, running the full height of the wall, where this seasonal expansion and contraction occurs. Contact several local builders for quotes, including Hayes John of 6 Sir Christopher Ct, Hythe, Southampton, SO45 6JR on 023 8084 9984.

A selection of different courses and brick making techniques of brick building are used in properties built throughout the ages. Maintenance work may be more time-consuming and costly than you assume.

Shocking Electrics

When I was shown the thirties house I am interested to acquire it looked like there were damaged electrical sockets, will a Clowne Homebuyer Report give details on on the wiring and electrical system?

When preparing a Clowne Home Survey your surveyor will usually report on the state of the electrics if it is suspected that the electrics are in a dangerous state of repair. Your surveyor should also focus on issues like reporting on the state of the fitted appliances such as heaters. Examining the documents from the most recent Periodic Inspection Report handled by a suitably qualified electrician will usually form part of the survey. A check for the documentation from the most recent Periodic Inspection Report handled by a suitably qualified electrician on the property being surveyed should usually form part of the survey.

The IEE advocate an electrical system check should be carried out at least every 10 years (5 if letting).
