Which Home Buyers Survey is the right choice?

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to book a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a home in Sedbergh and which one is cheaper?

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

If the Sedbergh property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out an extension on the Sedbergh property, RICS advise you commission a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap however it does offer exhaustive analysis of the Sedbergh property's state of repair along with an opinion on defects , repairs as well as maintenance options .

Conservation area

Are there any things we need to check out if intending to buy a building in Sedbergh near a conservation area ?

There are thousands official conservation areas in the UK which are designated by the local authority. Sedbergh surveyors must possess sufficient knowledge of local area factors and any relation they have on the property and its value. House prices are generally significantly higher due to the areas being in their original state.

Surveyors are trained to advise if the home is possibly in a conservation area and Section I of the Sedbergh Homebuyer Report will suggest the proper questions are conducted by the solicitor or conveyancer. Unapproved extensions that do not have Local Authority approval may be reported in the Sedbergh survey but these are really more a concern for your legal representative.

Stone block wall damage

Will a property with stone walls create more problems? Are there any issues that need to be investigated?

Britain's geology has encouraged the use of many varieties of stone, from Wroxton Limestone to Dukes Gritstone. Problems which impact stone-built Sedbergh houses can vary greatly, with issues like efflorescence being quote common. Irregular stone walls are found throughout the county, and can require more care and attention that regular, brick-like stone walls due greater impact the weather can have on exposed mortar. You can request advice on the specific steps to be taken when a problem is identified.

Common guidance may include clearance of nearby trees and plants. Pulling these up can cause more damage, so your surveyor may recommend a specialist perform the work. Purchasers renovating Sedbergh houses should be aware that a stone matching service is operated by the British Geological Survey. To source stone quarried in Sedbergh, you can contact local suppliers.

Timber damage by insect larvae

My friend spotted signs of insects in the toilet. Do we need a chartered surveyor?

Sedbergh homes will often be free of major pests. However, if you do have specific concerns, you should seek advice. Unfortunately, the impact to a house and its inhabitants can affect the health of residents and affect its value.

It may not be obvious that a home is suffering a severe pest problem, as evidence can be overlooked. As an example, mice are able to squeeze through even small gaps and holes, and quickly spread disease through their droppings. Remedies to an infestation can include removal of infected furniture.
