HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a property in Woodcote Green and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey but is essentially the same survey.

If the Woodcote Green property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction, RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any substantial modifications, RICS recommend you commission a Building Survey instead. This survey is less cheap, however it does give you an in-depth analysis of the Woodcote Green property's condition as well as including more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Conservation area

Will there be any considerations I need to verify when intending to buy a period property in Woodcote Green in the vicinity of conservation area ?

There are around ten thousand of conservation areas in England and Wales, responsibility for which lies with the local council.

Home Buyers Surveys in Woodcote Green are required by RICS to possess local knowledge of local factors and the effect may have on the property. The value of homes is usually higher than non conservation area equivalents owing to the areas retaining their original character. However many areas are falling into a state e.g. the huge increase in street clutter

RICS surveyors are trained to inform you whether the building is or might be within a conservation area and Section I of the Homebuyer Report will suggest further investigations are raised as part of the legal process. Unconsented modifications to the property may also be advised, however these should be investigated

by your conveyancer. Streeter Marshall are based in 12 Purley Parade, Croydon, London, CR8 2AB and may be prepared to advise further. Tel: 020 8660 4877

Shocking Electrics

When we were shown a sixties house we want to buy it looked like there was no RCD on the fuse board ; will the Woodcote Green surveyor advise on the electrical system condition?

During a Homebuyer Report in Woodcote Green the home surveyor will usually remark on the electrics if it is suspected that the electrics are in a poor state.

This should include a visual view of open or exposed sections of the wiring, fusebox etc. in addition to areas like checking the condition of fixed electrical appliances like storage heaters or reporting on the condition of any visible wiring a sample of light fittings. Verifying the location of the documents from any recent PIR conducted by an electrician should usually form part of the survey in Woodcote Green.

The IEE (Institute of Electrical Engineers) advocate that a Periodic Inspection be conducted every ten years (or every 5 if renting out).

Asbestos roof tiles

A builder friend commented to say there is concern white asbestos cement at the property. What are the risks of asbestos?

Asbestos is a pernicious fibrous structured mineral. There are over 60 types, 6 of which were used in the UK and may be in building materials such as insulation.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has a range of useful characteristic resistance to electrical damage properties, it may be found in Fuse box for example.

All forms are hazardous and can lead to lung cancer following prolonged exposure. If found, care should be taken on no account to displace asbestos. Professional advice should be sought without delay.

Surveyors do not test for asbestos on a Woodcote Green home survey. They will note the risk of asbestos and will recommend relevant tests.
