HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a house in Whitnash and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey, however it is basically the same the same survey.

If the Whitnash property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out significant alterations, RICS advise you book a Building Survey. This option is less cheap, but it does give exhaustive analysis of the Whitnash property's general condition and it includes an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

Stone block wall damage

We are planning to buy a property and the seller has stated that it has been constructed with York stone. Which major issues should we consider?

Britain's varied geology has encouraged the use of many varieties of stone, from Portland Cap Limestone to Portland Fancy Beach Limestone. Buyers should also be aware that the potential severity of issues like erosion will vary with the particular type of stone.

Regular stone walls are built with prepared or cut stone, called ashlar, and are often easier to maintain than walls of irregular construction. This is a generalisation however, as limestone or sandstone-built and regularly-coursed walls can decay rapidly when exposed to more extreme environmental conditions or pollution. Buyers should consider that stone can have

a great effect on the long-term viability of a property or extension, resulting in higher repair costs in future.

For example, limestones such as Bath stone or Kentish Rag will deteriorate when exposed to the elements. You can ask the surveyor carrying out the survey for specific advice, but common maintenance suggestions include resolution of underlying problems, like damp, before work on the wall starts.

Traditionally built property

We are buying a 18th Century converted stable. What effect will the rafter roof have on regular maintenance?

For traditionally-built Whitnash property, age can sometimes be an issue. Homes constructed with traditional methods can be a chore to repair. It is often the case that specialist knowledge is necessary, and it could also be necessary to find Traditional materials. If you have doubts, speak to your chartered surveyor for further advice.

Conservation area

Will there be any factors I would need to look into when planning to buy a property in Whitnash in conservation area ?

There are many thousands official conservation areas in England and Wales that are designated and monitored by the local authority. Surveyors in Whitnash are required by RICS to have relevant knowledge of relevant local considerations and any effect may have with the building. Values will be significantly higher owing to conservation areas being preserved.

Surveyors are expected advise whether the location looks to be is designated and Section I of the Homebuyer Report will recommend additional due diligence and enquiries are carried out by your legal representation. Unauthorised adjustments that do not have Local Authority approval may also be reported in the Whitnash survey, however these should be concern for the lawyer.
