About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Lydney

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to choose a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a property in Lydney and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey but is basically the same the same survey.

If the Lydney property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any major works, RICS advise you book a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap but it does give an in-depth analysis of the Lydney property's general condition in addition to an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

Damage resulting from flooding

Is there a risk of flooding in Lydney, and can a Lydney home surveyor check for any water damage?

Flooding has become a major issue, not least because last year was the second wettest on record, and owning a home in or near a high-risk area can mean higher insurance premiums. Your RICS surveyor may use several methods to determine if the home in question is in danger, but a surveyor will also make recommendations to prepare for the worst. Less expensive preventative measures include door guards. The Environment Agency also publish details of previous flood warnings.

Roof defects identified during a survey

Mould caused problems in the past. What does the Lydney surveyor look for?

Lydney properties that are otherwise ideal can be hiding serious roofing problems, such as. From trusses to tie beams, the whole roof must be reviewed. Factors like amateur repairs are particularly troublesome for flat roofed property.

In the past, roof maintenance would be carried out with just ladders and 'crawler boards'. This practice is terribly unsafe, and contractors today will insist that scaffolding be used. A Lydney roofing specialist can provide an estimate. Speak to A Roofer of 4 Mathern Rd, Bulwark, Chepstow, NP16 5JS on 07561 318691 for a quote.

Conservation area

Are there any issues I would be advised to look out for when planning to buy a converted house in Lydney in a conservation area?

There are 9, 300 of designated conservation areas throughout England and Wales, responsibility for which lies with the local authority.

Home Buyers Surveys in Lydney need to possess sufficient knowledge of relevant local area factors and any bearing may have with the property and its value. The price of property is typically more than prices outside the area as a result of the areas retaining their original character. However many conservation areas are falling into shoddy condition for example - unauthorised alterations to the fronts, roofs and chimneys of buildings

Property surveyors are trained to advise you whether the location is or might be is so classified and Section I Issues for your legal advisers of your Homebuyer Report will advise the proper questions are carried out by your solicitor. Unsympathetic adjustments that do not have Local Authority approval should be noted, however these should be concern for the lawyer.
