Home Buyers Survey in Irby

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to select a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a home in Irby and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey, however it is essentially the same comprehensive survey.

If the Irby property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out any works or an extension, RICS advise you commission a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap, however it does give you exhaustive analysis of the Irby property's condition as well as advice on defects and maintenance options .

Traditionally built property

We are purchasing in Irby. What will we need to investigate when purchasing a building constructed in 1740? What consequences will the unusual construction have on repairs?

Some purchasers hope to own a old, characterful home one day. The age of a structure, however, can occasionally give buyers second thoughts. Irby structures built using traditional methods can be expensive to repair. You should bear in mind that specialist expertise may be needed, and it could also be necessary to find Traditional materials. If you are uncertain, speak to your Irby surveyor for further advice.

Conservation area

Are there any potential pitfalls I should be aware of when buying a flat in Irby in conservation area, particularly in relation to house prices?

There are 9, 300 of designated conservation areas in England and Wales which are designated by the local council. Irby surveyors are required by RICS to have sufficient knowledge of relevant local area issues and any bearing may have on the home. Values tends to be more than prices outside the area due to them being preserved.

Surveyors will tell you if the property is/might be so designated and Section I Issues for your legal advisers of a Homebuyer Report will recommend further enquiries are carried out by your conveyancer. Out of keeping adjustments to the building will also be noted in the survey but these are really more a concern for your lawyer.

Damage caused by high rainfall

Do I need to check downspouts? And could it affect the property value?

Rainfall is a fact of life in the UK, however, the effect which rainfall has on properties is not considered by home buyers. Signs that downspouts are blocked include "gushing" gutters. Fortunately, guttering issues are quite easy to resolve, if maintenance is taken seriously. However, if the drains are not maintained, the resulting damage can lower the value of the property and become increasing harder to repair. In the worst case scenario, deterioration of a building's foundations can become fatal to its structural integrity, risking collapse.
