About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Brimsdown

HomeBuyer Report

Should I book a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a house in Brimsdown and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same level of survey.

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

If you are planning to do any alterations, you should you opt for a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap however it will give you comprehensive details of the Brimsdown property's condition and it includes more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

Conservation area

Will there be any issues we would need to look into if planning to buy an extended house in Brimsdown in the vicinity of conservation area ?

There are nearly 10, 000 of designated conservation areas in England and Wales which are overseen by the local council. Your surveyor are required by RICS to possess local knowledge of relevant local area factors and any connection they have on the property and its value. Property Prices are generally enhanced because of the areas being in their original state. However many of them are falling into are falling into a state for example - unauthorised alterations to the fronts, roofs and chimneys of buildings

Surveyors can be expected to note if the planned purchase looks to be so designated and Section I Issues for your legal advisers of your Homebuyer Report will suggest additional enquiries are carried out by your legal representation. Out of keeping modifications that do not have Local Authority approval should be reported in the Brimsdown survey, however these should be concern for your legal adviser.

Damage resulting from flooding

We think this residence is located in a low lying area. Is there a major flood risk? Would our HomeBuyer Report check for flooding damage, or if nearby homes have been affected?

A wide variety of factors can cause flood damage, from inadequate drainage to tidal activity. Both home buyers and home owners in areas in danger of flooding are right to be worried. It is easily possible to assess whether a house is susceptible to flooding via any of a number of routes. Flood water can enter a property through a number of routes, including air bricks, poorly fitted doors and windows, and seepage through external walls. The Building Survey will also include details of any evidence of historical flooding, and may comment generally about the area's propensity to flood. Oral enquiries can sometimes be made of the agent, but this information may not be accurate.

Fortunately, no recent Brimsdown flood warnings have been found (source: Environment Agency).
