HomeBuyer Report

Should I have a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a house in Disley and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same comprehensive survey.

If the Disley property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out substantial modifications, it would be better that you book a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it will give an in-depth analysis of the Disley property's general condition in addition to more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Conservation area

Are there any potential pitfalls I would need to be wary of when buying a flat in Disley in the vicinity of a conservation area?

There are many thousands official conservation areas in England and Wales, responsibility for which lies with the local council. Surveyors in Disley must have knowledge of local issues and the bearing may have with the property. Prices is typically enhanced which is down to them resisting change. However many of them are falling into are falling into poor condition for example - ugly satellite dishes

Surveyors are expected inform you if the home could be is designated and Section I of your Disley Homebuyer Report will recommend additional due diligence

and enquiries are carried out by the conveyancing solicitor. Unconsented changes that do not have Local Authority approval will also be noted in the survey but these are really more a concern for your legal adviser.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

We are buying in Disley and are looking for a 80s property constructed with brick walls. What warnings would a Disley property surveyor give?

Brick-built Disley properties demonstrate several benefits. Unfortunately, they also suffer from numerous defects, such as sulphate expansion. One problem often found is rapidly deteriorating cement mortar, caused by sulphate attack. This may require outright demolition of the wall, if discovered. For more information, contact a local builder, Poole W D of 71 Greenway Rd, Rumney, Cardiff, CF3 3HL on 029 2079 5836.

For home purchasers in Disley seeking a rare example of brick architecture, look for unusual course styles like herringbone bond, which has a distinctive L-shaped pattern.

Building Surveys on flats 1

Is it the right choice to opt for a full structural survey prior to purchasing a derelict, Victorian purpose built flat in Disley?

The Full Structural Survey is now called the Building Survey. Opt for the Building Survey for the flat you describe. The HomeBuyer Report has enough detail if investigating a 60 year old or less unmodified Disley flat assembled from conventional construction materials. Over and above house surveys, flat conversions mean access to the building can be prevented - so the surveyor can only go over the area within identifiable boundary of the flat, although he/she give details of communal parts like for example shared roof spaces.
