Home Buyers Survey in Dingle

HomeBuyer Report

Should I book a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a property in Dingle and which would be cheaper?

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

If the Dingle property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any an extension, RICS advise you choose a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap, but it will offer comprehensive details of the Dingle property's state of repair along with advice on structural defects , repairs as well as maintenance options .

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

A home we intend to buy is built on clay soil. Does a Building Survey discuss soil composition the report?

The content of soil around the foundations of a home will have an impact. There may be little evidence of underlying defects, such as cracked plaster. Steps like swift repair of any collapsed drains can help maintain clay-rich soil, but a purchaser should discuss specifics with the surveyor if extensive upkeep is warranted. In some more extreme cases, the building foundations may need extra support, but this can be costly.

Building Surveys on flats 1

Should I pay more for a full structural survey when buying a flat in Dingle?

The Full Structural Survey is now reclassified as the Building Survey. Choose a Building Survey if you are planning to buy the flat outlined. The HomeBuyer Report is detailed enough for a post fifties unmodified flat assembled from standard construction materials and methods. Bear in mind that a few limitations exist with any survey as RICS chartered surveyor will not be able to, unless safe to do so and with consent from the owner, open up the fabric of the flat or assess serviceability of a boiler. Furthermore flats often mean access to the building can be prevented meaning a surveyor is only authorised give details on the actual flat although he/she comment on other tenant shared areas e.g. the drains.

Conservation area

Will there be any potential pitfalls we would need to consider when planning to buy a converted flat in Dingle in the vicinity of a conservation area?

There are many thousands of designated conservation areas in the UK, responsibility for which lies with local authorities. Dingle surveyors need to possess relevant knowledge of local considerations and any bearing they have on the building. Values is typically more than prices outside the area as a result of them being in good order. However many conservation areas have fallen into disrepair for example - increasing amounts of scruffy green spaces

Surveyors are trained to advise if the planned purchase is/might be in a conservation area and Section I of your Homebuyer Report will suggest further enquiries are carried out by your conveyancer. Unauthorised modifications that do not have Local Authority approval should be reported, however these should be investigated by your legal representative.
