HomeBuyer Report

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

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

If the Hope property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any an extension, you should you commission a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it does provide you with comprehensive details of the Hope property's condition as well as information on defects as well as maintenance options .

If in doubt why not obtain a Hope Survey Quote on our website or call 0800 038 6667 to speak to one of our advisers.

Damage resulting from flooding

We think this home is located on a flood plain. Is there a major flood risk? Would our house surveyor search for flood damage?

It is estimated that over two million residences are exposed to flooding damage, and owning a Hope property in or near a high-risk area can mean higher insurance premiums. A surveyor has a number of options to assess whether a property is vulnerable, but a surveyor will also make recommendations to prepare for the worst. An awareness of characteristics of the Hope area likely to affect the home also enables the property surveyor to advise flooding may be a risk, the data used to compile third-party flood assessments also takes into account flood defences and historic claims.

Timber damage by insect larvae

I am worried about an infestation in the home we plan to buy. Will a surveyor look into this?

Property in Hope are not usually impacted by serious cases of pest problems, but buying without any professional advice on the issue is not recommended.

Unfortunately, the threat posed by these to property is very real, and can impact a home's worth. An affected property may not always be easy to identify.

For example, cockroaches hide during the day, in light-fittings, beneath cracks in floor tiles or behind appliances. You may not spot them until moving in. Treatment for pest problems may include insecticides or destruction of tainted materials. The surveyor may include notes on any signs of vermin or other pests in their report. It is, however, advisable that specific worries you may have be raised ASAP.

Conservation area

Will there be any issues I would need to be conscious of when purchasing an extended house in Hope inside a conservation area ?

There are over 9, 000 of designated conservation areas throughout the country which are governed by local councils. Hope surveyors are required by RICS to have local knowledge of relevant local area issues and the connection may have with the building. Prices is typically more than prices outside the area as a result of them being largely unspoilt However many areas have been neglected and are in a poor state for example - unauthorised alterations to the fronts, roofs and chimneys of buildings

RICS surveyors are expected advise you if the property might be in a conservation area and Section I Issues for your legal advisers of a Homebuyer Report will advise additional due diligence and enquiries are conducted by your solicitor. Unsympathetic adjustments to the building should be noted in the survey but these are really more a concern for your legal adviser.
