Home Buyers Survey in Clophill

HomeBuyer Report

Should I select a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a property in Clophill and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey, however it is essentially the same comprehensive survey.

If the Clophill property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make an extension, RICS advise you select a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap, however it will give you exhaustive analysis of the Clophill property's general condition as well as including an opinion on defects , repairs and maintenance options .

Conservation area

Will there be any problems we would be advised to look into when purchasing a house in Clophill near a conservation area?

There are over 9, 000 of conservation areas in the UK which are designated by local councils.

Home Buyers Surveys in Clophill need to possess sufficient knowledge of local area factors and any bearing they have with the building and its value. The value of homes is, more often than not, enhanced which is down to them resisting change. However many conservation areas are falling into poor condition for example - the unsightly effect of billboard advertising

RICS surveyors are trained to report if the planned purchase is/might be is so classified and the Section I Issues for your legal advisers of a Clophill Homebuyer Report will suggest additional enquiries are carried out by the solicitor or conveyancer.

Unauthorised extensions to the building should be commented on but these are really more a concern for your conveyancer.

External walls

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

The RICS HomeBuyer Report is designed to be user-friendly, unlike some more complex survey reports. Green, orange and red ratings are an indication of how concerning each aspect of the report is. Parts of the report which do not apply to the specific house being surveyed will be indicated with a 'NI', or 'not inspected'. Irrelevant subsections of the HomeBuyer Report, like an assessment of a conservatory where the home in question does not have one, are disregarded. In Clophill, examples include the bowing or leaning of external, non-structural walls. All visible issues relating to the outside elevations and foundations are checked. If hidden issues with the walls or foundations are suspected, a more comprehensive structural survey may be advised. Observations on the Damp Proof Course are also reported here.
