HomeBuyer Report

Should we choose a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a property in South Molton and which one is the cheapest?

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

If the South Molton property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any alterations, RICS advise you choose a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap however it will give you a more detailed analysis of the South Molton property's state of repair along with more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

Conservation area

Are there any things I would be advised to look into if purchasing a converted house in South Molton inside a conservation area ?

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

A Building Surveyors must possess local knowledge of local area factors and the bearing may have on the property and its value. The value of homes will likely be inflated owing to them being unspoilt. However a growing number have been neglected and are in a state for example - the addition of PVC windows and doors

RICS surveyors can be expected to advise if the planned purchase could be in a conservation area and Section I Issues for your legal advisers of the Homebuyer Report will advise the proper questions are carried out by your conveyancer. Unconsented adjustments to the building will also be reported in the South Molton survey, however these should be concern for your legal representative.

Damage caused by high rainfall

Is it a good idea to investigate rainwater goods? Also, if there is damage, will they be expensive to fix?

I find it odd that the impact rainfall can have on properties is ignored. One indication that drainage are blocked is water pooling below gutters, and may lead to rising damp. Whether buying in South Molton or elsewhere, difficult drainage does not necessarily mean that you need to pull out. Such matters are often simple to fix, and is also relatively inexpensive. If untreated or poorly maintained, however, the damage can be very costly and time-consuming to remedy.

Conservatory

In a South Molton HomeBuyer Report, what are common a green light rating defects for conservatory and porches?

A condition rating of 1 states that no repair work is needed. Elements of Section E marked as condition rating 1 may however still require regular maintenance. Parts of the report which do not apply to the specific property being surveyed will be indicated with a 'NI', or 'not inspected'. Irrespective of standardised format of the report, your surveyor will provide a bespoke report, tailored to your particular concerns. This section covers conservatories and porches. Any signs of inappropriate use, such as using a conservatory as a bedroom or kitchen will be considered too. Rot and insect damage to the beams in a conservatory's fabric is an example.
