HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to book a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a property in St George and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same level of survey.

If the St George property is a flat or maisonette, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any alterations, it would be better that you commission a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap, but it does give you exhaustive analysis of the St George property's condition as well as including advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Shocking Electrics

When I saw a property I intend to acquire, it appeared that there is deterioration in the wiring and RCD unit, will the surveyor advise the wiring and electrical system?

When performing a St George Homebuyer Report the home surveyor should comment on the state of the electrics if it is clear that they are in a hazardous condition. This will include a general check of any uncovered sections of the wiring, fusebox etc. as well as possible problems relating to things like checking the type of electrical fittings in shower rooms or reporting on the condition of any visible wiring

a representative sample of switch gear. A check for the documents from a test on the condition of the electrical wiring carried out by an electrician will be part of the Homebuyer report in St George.

Traditionally built property

I am buying an old barn conversion. Will the age of the house be a problem?

Vernacular architecture can often be problematic. Properties constructed with traditional or "vernacular" techniques can be a drain to upkeep. It is often the case that specialist knowledge is necessary. Especially for listed buildings, Traditional materials may be required. This may mean that it is all the more vital that you get a building survey prior to exchanging. Speak to your building surveyor for more information.

Conservation area

Will there be any concerns we would need to be aware of when buying a converted house in St George inside a conservation area, particularly in respect of to house prices?

There are 9, 300 official conservation areas in England and Wales which are overseen by the local authority.

Your surveyor must have local knowledge of local factors and any relation they have on the building and its value. Property values is typically higher due to them retaining original features.

Property surveyors can be expected to tell you if the property looks to be within a conservation area and Section I of a Homebuyer Report will advise the proper questions are conducted during the conveyancing process. Out of keeping developments to the property may also be noted, however these should be concern for the lawyer.
