About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Prestbury

HomeBuyer Report

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

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

If the Prestbury property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out significant alterations, you should you choose a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap, however it does give you a more detailed analysis of the Prestbury property's general condition and it includes advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

Timber damage by insect larvae

I am worried about bugs in the home we plan to buy. Will the Building Survey investigate this?

Buyers should be aware that there is no legal obligation for a seller to report on an infestation. Regrettably, infestations can impact a home's worth and put your health in danger. An affected property may not always be easy to identify, bed bugs do not live in mattresses, as in commonly thought, but in cracks in the bed frame, or around the room, and will feed on the host at night. Treatment for bug or other pest issues may include insecticides or removal or excision of affected timber.RICS guidelines on the issue of infestations are something of a 'grey-area', so specific fears should be mentioned to your property surveyor.

Shocking Electrics

When I went to see the period property I expect to purchase, the agent said that there is an old fuse board , will a surveyor go into detail on the wiring and electrical system?

When carrying out a Home Buyers Survey in Prestbury a surveyor should make a note on the electrical system if it appears that they are in a poor condition. This should include a by sight view of any revealed areas of the wiring, fusebox etc. as well as possible problems relating to things like verifying the state of repair of any fitted appliances such as storage radiators or the condition residual circuit breakers. A check for the documents from a test on the condition of the electrical wiring carried out by an electrician should form part of the survey.

Conservation area

Are there any factors we need to check on when buying a house in Prestbury inside a conservation area?

There are many thousands official conservation areas in England and Wales which are governed by local authorities.

Home Buyers Surveys in Prestbury must possess sufficient knowledge of local factors and the relation they have on the home and its value. Prices is typically higher than non conservation area equivalents owing to them being in their original state. However many have been neglected and are in a state e.g. ugly satellite dishes

RICS surveyors will tell you whether the building is or might be so designated and Section I of your Prestbury Homebuyer Report will suggest further enquiries are carried out by your legal adviser. Unauthorised adjustments to the property may also be commented on but these are really more a concern for the solicitor.
