About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Honiton

HomeBuyer Report

Should I select a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a property in Honiton and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey but is effectively the same.

If the Honiton property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any substantial modifications, RICS advise you carry out a Building Survey instead. This option is not as cheap however it will offer an in-depth analysis of the Honiton property's state of repair in addition to information on defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

Damage resulting from flooding

When buying in Honiton, should we be uneasy about a flood risk, and will the building survey inquire into water damage?

Flooding has become a major issue, not least because last year was the second wettest on record, and owning a Honiton property in or near a high-risk area can mean higher insurance premiums. It is easily possible to assess whether a house is susceptible to flooding via any of a number of routes. In addition, the house survey may outline a strategy for flood-related upkeep. The house survey will also include details of any evidence of historical flooding, and may comment generally about the area's propensity to flood. The property surveyor will usually recommend that the house buyers seek legal advice on any related information mentioned in the report.

Conservation area

Are there any considerations I would be advised to be conscious of if buying a house in Honiton inside a conservation area ?

There are around ten thousand official conservation areas throughout England and Wales that are designated and monitored by the local authority. Honiton surveyors must have sufficient knowledge of relevant local area issues and the effect they have with the building and its value. The value of homes will be higher because of them resisting change. However a growing number are falling into a state of neglect e.g. the addition of PVC windows and doors

Surveyors are trained to tell you whether the property is/might be is designated and the Section I Issues for your legal advisers of the Homebuyer Report will advise additional due diligence and enquiries are conducted by your legal representation. Unsympathetic developments to the building should be advised in your survey, however these should be investigated by your conveyancer.

Gas flame

Will a local surveyor look into the safety of the gas flues?

The will visually survey the easily accessible parts of the gas system. This will include gas heaters (also LPG/oil/electric) at the home, as well as gas affiliated fixtures, for instance balanced flues. Your Honiton local surveyor won't remove fittings and won't do any tests whatsoever on the system or appliances. Needless to say, gas is potentially fatal, should there be any concerns relating to gas installations, call a gas engineer.

Gas Safe firms in Honiton include P Woodley Plumbing and Heating of 3 Polly Brook Cottages, Payhembury, Honiton, Devon Tel. 01404841004.

The Gas Safety (Installation & Use) Regulations 1998 require that all landlords are obligated to carry out appliance and installation inspections every year. Non compliance penalties are criminal .
