HomeBuyer Report

Should I have a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a property in Darnall and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey but is effectively the same level of survey.

If the Darnall property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any an extension, RICS advise you go for a Building Survey. This option is less cheap, however it does give you comprehensive details of the Darnall property's state of repair as well as including advice on defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

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

Conservation area

Are there any factors I need to be aware of when purchasing a period property in Darnall near a conservation area ?

There are over 9, 000 of designated conservation areas in England and Wales that are designated and monitored by the local council.

RICS surveyors are expected tell you whether the property is possibly is designated and Section I of the Homebuyer Report will suggest additional enquiries are raised

by your legal representation. Unapproved developments to the building may be noted in the survey, however these should be concern for your legal adviser.
