Home Buyers Survey in Kineton

HomeBuyer Report

Should I choose a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a property in Kineton and of the 3, which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey but is essentially the same level of survey.

If the Kineton property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make any major works on the property, it would be better that you carry out a Building Survey instead. This more detailed survey is not as cheap, however it does offer exhaustive analysis of the Kineton property's state of repair and it includes more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Conservation area

Will there be any potential pitfalls we should check out if purchasing a house in Kineton in the vicinity of a conservation area?

There are 9, 300 official conservation areas throughout England and Wales which are designated by local councils.

A Building Surveyors must have local knowledge of local considerations and the effect they have on the building and its value. Values will likely be enhanced due to them retaining original features. However many of them are falling into have been neglected and are in a state for example - unauthorised alterations to the fronts, roofs and chimneys of buildings

Surveyors can be expected to advise you whether the property looks to be is designated and the Section I Issues for your legal advisers of the Kineton Homebuyer Report will advise further investigations are raised during the conveyancing process. Unsympathetic adjustments to the building may also be reported, however these should be investigated by your lawyer.

Landfill site near home

What should I be concerned about when buying a home close to a landfill site

Landfill Sites take many forms including industrial rubbish. Nobody wants to live near one (4/5 people live within 1.5m of one!). Concerns might include leaking underground tanks from petrol stations for example. Potential health problems such as birth defects have been associated to landfill sites .

Surveyors will flag up any structural defects resulting from the site. Your solicitor will conduct environmental searches of the British Geological database as well as Stratford-on-Avon Local Authority and give you the results of the search .

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Which Kineton Surveys include a valuation and cost of rebuild estimate

The Homebuyer Report includes a (registered valuer) surveyor valuation and a rebuilding cost as standard. To be able to determine an accurate estimate of the value of the building your RICS valuer should use local Kineton market factors and other considerations relating to the property e.g. accommodation The RICS surveyor will also consider certain fixtures and fittings and will use other assumptions such as there being no significant defects. Surveyors don't value certain things like sales incentives.

Additional local Kineton area conjectures like service connections, are made as well as any significant Kineton environmental concerns like nearby railway tracks, also being considered.

A Building Survey does not include a valuation as standard. A valuation can, however, be added for a small additional fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.

Deteriorated timber

For the Kineton HomeBuyer Report, what does a an amber light rating mean for joinery and finishes?

RICS created the HomeBuyer Report to give home purchasers a clear and easy to read report on the condition of the home they plan to buy. Your property surveyor will mark each aspect of the property included in Section E with either a green, orange or red rating, to indicate to what extent each defect requires attention. Amber, or condition rating 2, defects will need to be repaired or replaced at some point. The condition of this particular aspect of the property is unlikely to require urgent work, however.

An example of this is loose cement sidings. They are visually inspected with the aid of binoculars where appropriate. Both bargeboards, and general verge details, will be covered.
