HomeBuyer Report

Should I book a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a house in Grenoside and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey, although it is effectively the same comprehensive survey.

If the Grenoside property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction, then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out an extension, RICS advise you go for a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap, but it will provide you with exhaustive analysis of the Grenoside property's state of repair and it includes advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Building Surveys on houses

As it is more expensive, what is the reason of carrying out a full structural survey when investing in a modified detached property near Grenoside instead of a HomeBuyer Report?

Sometimes described as the Structural Survey by many, this survey is no longer available as it has been re-titled by RICS and the correct term is now the Building Survey. You would be best advised to choose the RICS Building Survey for the house you are contemplating. A HomeBuyer Report will suffice if buying a mid 20th century of later Grenoside house made out of normal construction materials. You should be aware of a number survey no go areas exist with a Building Survey because the surveyor will not be able to (unless safe to do so) force or open up the structure of the house for example, or comment on the regulatory compliance of heating systems.

Damage resulting from flooding

Is there a risk of flooding in Grenoside, and can a Grenoside HomeBuyer Report investigate flooding damage, or whether flooding has affected neighbouring property?

Unfortunately, distance from water or height above sea level is no guarantee that a residence will be secure against floods; sensible owners and purchasers in Grenoside are right to consider precautions.

As with many aspects of home ownership, flood prevention is better (and cheaper) than a cure, but a surveyor will also make recommendations to prepare for the worst. Section J of the survey report contains details, where applicable, of flooding risks found within the boundaries of the Grenoside home or on adjacent sites. The property surveyor may ask the current owner if the Grenoside home has previously flooded. Note that the response to such enquires should not be exclusively relied upon.

Fortunately, no Grenoside flood alerts have been given (source: Environment Agency).

Conservation area

Will there be any things I would be advised to verify when intending to buy a house in Grenoside near a conservation area ?

There are thousands of designated conservation areas throughout England and Wales that are designated and monitored by local councils.

A Building Surveyors are required by RICS to have sufficient knowledge of local considerations and the connection they have on the building. Property values is generally higher owing to conservation areas being unspoilt. However many areas are falling into disrepair for example - unauthorised alterations to the fronts, roofs and chimneys of buildings

Property surveyors are trained to advise you whether the property is/might be is so classified and Section I of a Homebuyer Report will recommend further investigations are conducted by the conveyancing solicitor. Unconsented modifications to the property should be noted, however these should be investigated by your lawyer.
