HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a house in Princes Risborough and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey and is effectively the same comprehensive survey.

If the Princes Risborough property is a flat or maisonette, or is a period property, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials, then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make any alterations, RICS recommend you go for a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap, however it will provide you with a more detailed analysis of the Princes Risborough property's general condition and it includes more detailed advice on defects , repairs and maintenance options .

Conservation area

Will there be any considerations we would be advised to check out if planning to buy a property in Princes Risborough in the vicinity of conservation area ?

There are over 9, 000 of designated conservation areas throughout England and Wales that are designated and monitored by local authorities. Your surveyor must possess sufficient knowledge of relevant local issues and any connection may have with the property and its value. House prices are generally greater owing to the areas retaining original features. However many conservation areas have fallen into a state e.g. ugly satellite dishes

Property surveyors will tell you whether the location looks to be within a conservation area and the Section I Issues for your legal advisers of your Princes Risborough Homebuyer Report will suggest further enquiries are carried out by the solicitor or conveyancer. Unauthorised adjustments to the building should be advised in your survey, however these should be investigated by the solicitor.
