HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to book a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a house in Shoeburyness and of the 3, which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey and is essentially the same comprehensive survey.

If the Shoeburyness property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make major works, it would be better that you choose a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap however it does give you a more detailed analysis of the Shoeburyness property's general condition and it includes information on defects as well as maintenance options .

Conservation area

Are there any considerations we should consider when planning to buy a flat in Shoeburyness inside a conservation area?

There are many thousands official conservation areas in the UK which are governed by the local council. Surveyors in Shoeburyness are required by RICS to have knowledge of local issues and the bearing may have with the building and its value. The value of homes is generally greater which is down to them retaining their original character. However a large number have been neglected and are in a poor state for example - the huge increase in street clutter

RICS surveyors are trained to inform you whether the property might be within a conservation area and the Section I Issues for your legal advisers of your Shoeburyness Homebuyer Report will suggest further enquiries are raised by your legal representation. Unconsented developments to the building will also be advised in your survey but these are really more a concern for your legal representative.

Flood water can enter a home through a number of routes, including air bricks, poorly fitted doors and windows, and seepage through external walls.

The Environment Agency also publish details of previous flood warnings.
