Home Buyers Survey in Flitwick

HomeBuyer Report

Should I select a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a home in Flitwick and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey but is basically the same the same level of survey.

If the Flitwick property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any alterations, you should you opt for a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap but it does provide you with comprehensive details of the Flitwick property's condition along with an opinion on defects , repairs and maintenance options .

Conservation area

Are there any problems we need to check on when planning to buy an extended house in Flitwick near a conservation area ?

There are over 9, 000 official conservation areas in the UK which are designated by local councils. Surveyors in Flitwick are required by RICS to possess sufficient knowledge of local considerations and the connection they have with the home and its value. Property Prices are generally higher because of conservation areas being preserved. However a growing number have fallen into poor condition for example - the unsightly effect of billboard advertising

Property surveyors are expected advise whether the building is possibly within a conservation area and the Section I Issues for your legal advisers of your Flitwick Homebuyer Report will suggest suitable questions are raised by your solicitor. Unapproved extensions to the building should be advised in your survey but these are really more a concern for your lawyer. Rebecca L Faret Solicitors are based in 1 The Avenue, Central Bedfordshire, Bedfordshire, MK45 1BP and may be able to help. Tel: 01525 712112

Shocking Electrics

When we were shown a sixties house we intend to buy it looked like there is an old fuse board - will a Flitwick survey report on the wiring and fusebox?

During a Flitwick Building Survey a qualified surveyor should comment on the overall electrical system if it is clear that they are in a dangerous state of repair. This should include an overview of the unconcealed parts of the wiring in addition to things like reporting on the condition of the fitted electrical appliances such as heaters or checking the condition of any visible wiring a sample of light fittings and switch gear.

Verifying the existence of any documents from a test on the condition of the electrical installations handled by a suitably qualified electrician should usually be part of the survey.

The IEE suggest that a periodic test be conducted every 10 years (or every 5 if letting).

Damage caused by high rainfall

Is it advisable to look into gutters? Could it affect the property value?

Regular rainfall is common in Flitwick and across the country, but the impact wet conditions can have on buildings is not given the attention it deserves by purchasers. For example, rotten roofing elements indicate that the rainwater goods are a cause for concern. This can lead to a damp or flooded cellar.

Fortunately, issues with rainwater goods are generally easy to remedy.
