HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to get a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a house in Scunthorpe and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey but is effectively the same comprehensive survey.

If the Scunthorpe property is a flat, or is an older property, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make alterations on the property, RICS advise you carry out a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap, however it does offer a more detailed analysis of the Scunthorpe property's state of repair and it includes advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

Will there be any potential pitfalls we would be advised to be wary of if buying a home in Scunthorpe inside a conservation area, particularly with regards to property values?

There are nearly 10, 000 of conservation areas in England and Wales which are overseen by the local council.

A Building Surveyors are required by RICS to have relevant knowledge of local area issues and the effect may have on the property. Property Prices will probably be significantly higher as a result of them being largely unspoilt

Property surveyors are expected advise you whether the location might be within a conservation area and Section I of your Homebuyer Report will suggest the proper questions are raised during the conveyancing process. Out of keeping adjustments that do not have Local Authority approval may be noted but these are really more a concern for the solicitor.

Gas flame

Will the Scunthorpe surveyor check the safety of the gas mains supply?

A RICS chartered surveyor will visually check any accessible parts of the gas system. This means things like whether the meter is in an escape route for example, as well as gas associated fixtures e.g. chimney breasts or flues. Should there be any external fittings they won't be dislodged. The system won't be tested. Most people are aware that gas is potentially dangerous, should you have any worries about gas, contact a gas safe engineer.
