Home Buyers Survey in Kidderminster

HomeBuyer Report

Should we choose a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a house in Kidderminster and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey but is effectively the same.

If the Kidderminster property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any substantial modifications, RICS advise you carry out a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap however it does offer an in-depth analysis of the Kidderminster property's general condition along with information on defects as well as maintenance options .

Traditionally built property

I am purchasing a 16th Century gatehouse in Kidderminster. What consequences will the thatched roof have on repairs?

Vernacular architecture can often be problematic. Houses built with traditional or "vernacular" techniques can be costly to upkeep. You should bear in mind that specialist expertise may be needed. Traditional materials may also need to be sourced, particularly in the case of a home in one of Kidderminster's conservation areas. This may result in longer-term maintenance obligations. If you plan to make alterations to a period residence, discuss options with your surveyor for further advice.

Building Surveys on houses

Are there any benefits for having a full structural survey in Kidderminster instead of a HomeBuyer Report if purchasing a converted end of terrace house?

Structural Surveys are no longer offered by Surveyors as a newer format which has been entitled the Building Survey is now available. Our advice would be to get a Building Survey in relation to the house referred to. The HomeBuyer Report has enough detail for a 60 year old or less unmodified Kidderminster home of standard building materials.

You should be aware of certain restrictions exist with the survey as RICS chartered surveyor is not able to force or open up the structure of the house of survey where hatches are over 3m above ground.

Conservation area

Are there any things we would need to on guard for when intending to buy a house in Kidderminster near a conservation area, particularly in respect of to house prices?

There are over 9, 000 official conservation areas throughout England and Wales which are overseen by the local council. Kidderminster surveyors are required by RICS to possess sufficient knowledge of relevant local issues and any connection they have on the building. Prices tends to be higher owing to them being unspoilt.

Property surveyors can be expected to advise you whether the location is or might be is designated and the Section I Issues for your legal advisers of your Homebuyer Report will recommend additional due diligence and enquiries are raised during the legal process. Unsympathetic changes to the property will also be advised in your survey, however these should be investigated by your legal representative.
