About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Stechford

HomeBuyer Report

Should we have a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a home in Stechford and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey but is basically the same the same.

If the Stechford property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make any alterations, RICS advise you book a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap, but it will give an in-depth analysis of the Stechford property's condition as well as including advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

Damage resulting from flooding

What's the danger of flooding in Stechford. Can a Stechford surveyor search for possible flooding, or whether flooding has affected other houses on the street?

It is estimated that over two million houses are at risk of water damage caused by flooding, and insurance premiums. can be significantly affected for houses in flood-risk areas. A surveyor has a number of options to assess whether a property is vulnerable.

Flood water can enter a residence through a number of routes, including air bricks, poorly fitted doors and windows, and seepage through external walls. The Home Buyers Survey will also include details of any evidence of historical flooding, and may comment generally about the area's propensity to flood. Flooding issues will only be raised in Section J of a Home Buyers Survey if the building surveyor observes or has reason to suspect that the residence is at risk.

Conservation area

Are there any concerns I would be advised to look into if intending to buy an extended house in Stechford in conservation area ?

There are many thousands of conservation areas in the UK, responsibility for which lies with the local council. Your surveyor need to possess local knowledge of local considerations and any effect may have on the building. House prices are usually higher than non conservation area equivalents owing to them being in their original state. However a large number are falling into shoddy condition for example - the addition of PVC windows and doors

Surveyors are trained to advise you if the planned purchase looks like it may be within a conservation area and Section I of a Homebuyer Report will advise additional due diligence and enquiries are raised by the conveyancing solicitor. Unconsented developments that do not have Local Authority approval should be noted, however these should be concern for your conveyancer.

Building Surveys on houses

Do we need to opt for the full structural survey when considering a derelict forties cottage near Stechford instead of a HomeBuyer Report?

Regularly called a Structural Survey by many, it is now defunct and and has been re-titled by RICS and the proper name is now the Building Survey. This is the most appropriate selection of survey when planning to buy a modified property like an older house in Stechford. It details comprehensive and often crucial insight in relation to the homes state of repair in conjunction with any needs for future maintenance after a thorough inspection of the inside and outside of the main building and permanent outbuildings.
