Home Buyers Survey in Amersham

HomeBuyer Report

Should I have a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a property in Amersham and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey, although it is basically the same the same comprehensive survey.

If the Amersham property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out any major works, you should you book a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it will give you exhaustive analysis of the Amersham property's condition along with more detailed advice on defects , repairs as well as maintenance options .

Roof defects identified during a survey

Mould caused problems in the past. What should we do about roof repairs?

Homes in the area in good condition can often hide difficulties with the roof. From the slates to the tie beams, the status of the whole roof should be reviewed, and any defects addressed as soon as possible.

The expense of insulating the attic, or other major roof work, means that some owners put it off for as long as possible. This is a false economy, as such issues can lead to more severe general structural problems. A quote for the work could be sought from a reliable contractor.

Conservation area

Are there any concerns we would need to check out when intending to buy a flat in Amersham near a conservation area ?

There are over 9, 000 of designated conservation areas throughout England and Wales which are governed by local authorities. Your surveyor must possess knowledge of relevant local area issues and any bearing may have with the building and its value. Property Prices will probably be higher than non conservation area equivalents which is down to them resisting change.

RICS surveyors can be expected to inform you if the planned purchase is or might be in a conservation area and Section I Issues for your legal advisers of the Amersham Homebuyer Report will recommend suitable questions are carried out as part of the legal process. Out of keeping adjustments that do not have Local Authority approval may be advised, however these should be investigated by your conveyancer.
