HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to select a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a house in Linslade and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, however it is basically the same the same survey.

If the Linslade property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction, RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out an extension, RICS recommend you book a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it will give you a more detailed analysis of the Linslade property's state of repair as well as advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

Damage caused by high rainfall

Are wet conditions an issue in Linslade? Will the HomeBuyer Report give details on this? Could damaged gutters lower the property value?

Regular rainfall is common in Linslade and across the country, but heavy rainfall and the effect it can have on houses are not given enough thought. One indication that downspouts are blocked is mildew in the attic. This can lead to rotten roof timbers.

The good news is that problems with drains are quite easy to fix if dealt with quickly. However, if the drains are not cleared out regularly, the resulting damage can lower the value of the property and become increasing harder to repair.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

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

Brick-constructed flats feature several advantages. However, they can also show signs of a range of defects. One defect surveyors commonly report on brick buildings is brick rot, resulting from decades of exposure to condensation or damp at ground level.

To arrange a quote for repairs, contact a local specialist, e.g. L C P at Business Development Centre/Main Av, Treforest Industrial Estate, Pontypridd, CF37 5UR on 01443 842864.

For buyers with an eye for detail, less used styles of brick course include English garden wall bond is often a mix of Flemish and Monk bonds.

Conservation area

Will there be any concerns we should be aware of when purchasing a converted flat in Linslade inside a conservation area?

There are thousands of conservation areas in the UK which are designated by local councils. Surveyors in Linslade must have relevant knowledge of relevant local area issues and any bearing may have with the property and its value. Property values tends to be higher than non conservation area equivalents which is down to the areas being unspoilt. However many of them are falling into have been neglected and are in shoddy condition for example - the removal front garden walls

Surveyors will note if the planned purchase is possibly so designated and Section I of the Linslade Homebuyer Report will advise additional enquiries are carried out by your legal adviser. Out of keeping changes to the property will also be noted but these are really more a concern for your conveyancer.
