HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to select a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a house in Ulverston and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same comprehensive survey.

If the Ulverston property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any works or an extension, you should you go for a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap however it does give exhaustive analysis of the Ulverston property's condition in addition to advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

Shocking Electrics

When I viewed the unmodernised property I intend to lease it appeared that there is evidence of an overload of the fuses, does a Ulverston Homebuyer Report give details on on the wiring and fusebox?

When performing a Home Survey in Ulverston a surveyor will make a note on the overall electrical system if it is obvious that the electrics are in a less than satisfactory state of repair. A Surveyor should also report on potential areas for concern such as if there are residual circuit breakers or verifying the condition of any visible wiring a representative sample of switch gear. Examining the documents from any recent PIR handled by a suitably qualified electrician on the property will usually form part of the survey.

The IEE recommend a PIR need be completed every 10 years (5 if renting out).

Stone block wall damage

Can Kentish Rag stone-built property be hard to upkeep. What factors should we be aware of?

Stone walls are often ignored by home buyers due to their apparent strength and solidity. Defects such as cracks affect many stone-walled Ulverston property. Irregular stone walls are not uncommon to Ulverston property, but dressed (cut) stone may also be used for decorative elements. Ashlar courses are often used to finish more irregular stone walls. This can give rise to maintenance issues if either element of the wall has been treated with a non-breathable material.

Home Buyers Surveys will usually offer guidance on these matters. An example would be careful removal of nearby trees and plants. Be careful not to pull these up by the roots, as they could already be intertwined with the wall's foundations, which will cause more damage.

Ask your surveyor for clarification if you are in doubt as to likely maintenance, particularly if the house in question is listed or located in a conservation area.

Conservation area

Will there be any things we would be advised to check on if buying a converted house in Ulverston in conservation area ?

There are over 9, 000 of conservation areas throughout England and Wales that are designated and monitored by the local authority. Your surveyor are required by RICS to possess relevant knowledge of relevant local area factors and any bearing they have with the building and its value. The value of homes will likely be more than prices outside the area because of them being unspoilt. However many areas are falling into a state for example - the unsightly effect of billboard advertising

Surveyors can be expected to report whether the location looks like it may be in a conservation area and Section I of your Ulverston Homebuyer Report will advise additional due diligence and enquiries are conducted by your legal representation. Unsympathetic adjustments to the building may also be noted, however these should be concern for the lawyer.
