Top tips for a Preston Home Buyers Survey

Housing in Preston grew rapidly in the Industrial Revolution era and there are a fair number of Victorian houses still standing and there are even some Georgian buildings on Winckley Square and also St Wilfrid's Catholic Church. Victorian buildings include the Harris Museum and HMP Preston.

Nearly 3,000 council houses were built between 1920 and 1939 and 1,500 private-built houses. These were of relatively standard construction, most commonly terraced and semi-detached properties. The post-war period saw many families being houses from town centre slums to new council houses, although this movement ground to a halt around 1975.

The Guild Hall and Preston Bus Station are examples of more modern architecture. There are also many new build developments under construction.

The Enquiries of the Local Authority Conveyancing Property Search, which is compulsory if you're buying with a mortgage, provides your property lawyer with invaluable information concerning Planning Permission and Building Regulations compliance and local land charges regarding a property you're looking to buy.

A recent such report for a dwelling in Oaklands Drive, Penwortham, Preston PR1 0XY revealed that planning permission had been complied with for a domestic garage and that a smoke control order was in force and also notice had been given regarding a new towns designation order. Your solicitor can reconcile records such as these against other information for the home in question and use it to form the basis of further enquiries for example, to ensure that you have as accurate information as possible before you choose to exchange contracts.
Parish church claims on parishioners for chancel repair, where these occur, can be fairly costly, with individual households possibly being legally required to pay £1,000s.

Buying a chancel repair indemnity insurance policy for a property you're looking to buy is an easy and efficient way of protecting yourself against this possible eventuality and among many others, one such policy was taken out for a property in Highgate Avenue, Fulwood, Preston PR2 8LL. This policy generally costs around £20 to buy and normally covers the policy holder for claims to the limit of £1 million.
The Environmental Search, one of the conveyancing property searches which you normally must buy if you're purchasing a home using a mortgage, can provide invaluable information about the land the dwelling is built on, which can affect whether you ultimately choose to go ahead with the purchase or not.

A recent such report for a dwelling in Waterloo Road, Ashton-on-ribble, Preston PR2 1BH revealed that the property was located within 4km of an area licensed for onshore energy exploration and production. This kind of finding might have implications for possible visual and aural pollution and even land contamination occasioning further research before you decide whether to continue with a purchase or not.

Home Buyers Survey - What does it cover?

A Home Buyers Survey is completed by a qualified RICS surveyor and delivers a visual inspection of the property in Preston and the surrounding garden. The aim of the survey, whether a Building Survey (which used to be known as a Full Structural Survey) or a HomeBuyers Report, is to identify potential risks or defects that you may not know are there such as cracks or damage to the structure of the property, subsidence, damp and infestations.
