About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Beacontree Heath

HomeBuyer Report

Should I select a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a house in Beacontree Heath and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey and is effectively the same survey.

If the Beacontree Heath property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any major works, RICS recommend you go for a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap, but it will offer a more detailed analysis of the Beacontree Heath property's condition and it includes advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

External walls

In the HomeBuyer Report, what might 'E4' refer to?

The format of the RICS HomeBuyer Report is clear and easy to read, with a minimum of technical jargon. Colour coded ratings are used to communicate the impact on the property individual defects may have. In some cases, an element covered under Section E may be marked as NI, or 'Not inspected'. The structured format for the HomeBuyer Report is intended to produce a useful and comprehensive survey for any purchasers. As a result, some sections are omitted where they do not apply to the surveyed property. Note that concealed elements will not be considered. If hidden issues with the walls or foundations are suspected, a more comprehensive structural survey may be advised. Damp proofing, including the DPC, is also included here. A dropped, rotating or leaning arch is one example.

Traditionally built property

My partner and I are purchasing an old farmstead. What should be budgeted for repairs?

Many buyers hope to own a old, characterful home one day. Older construction methods and materials, however, can concern buyers, and Beacontree Heath homes constructed with traditional methods can be expensive to maintain. It is often the case that expert knowledge is necessary. Traditional building materials may also need to be sourced, particularly in the case of Grade I listed property. If the home you are buying may require specialist maintenance, contact the chartered surveyor for more detail.

Conservation area

Are there any potential pitfalls we need to verify if intending to buy a building in Beacontree Heath inside a conservation area, particularly with regards to property values?

There are many thousands of conservation areas throughout the country, responsibility for which lies with the local authority.

Home Buyers Surveys in Beacontree Heath are required by RICS to possess relevant knowledge of relevant local considerations and the effect may have on the home and its value. The value of homes is typically higher than non conservation area equivalents as a result of the areas being in good order.

Surveyors will report if the property might be is so classified and Section I of the Beacontree Heath Homebuyer Report will advise additional due diligence and enquiries are carried out by your legal representation. Out of keeping adjustments that do not have Local Authority approval will also be reported in the Beacontree Heath survey, however these should be concern for the lawyer.
