Listed buildings found throughout Hereford and Worcester can be prestigious, historically significant, or beautiful
. Outbuildings, boundary walls and other external elements may also be protected by a property's listed status, which may impact an owner's plans. If there is any doubt whatsoever as to whether works can be undertaken, the local Planning Officer should be consulted. Due to the requirement that the materials and methods used to make repairs must match the original construction, maintenance can be much more expensive than equivalent work on a non-listed property. Concerns which should be addressed by a thorough survey include identification of the materials used in its construction, an assessment of its structural stability, and the condition of wiring, plumbing and heating. Finally, there are risks to consider buying a listed building, if it has been altered without consent:
- As the new owner you inherit the legal obligations, and may be forced to reverse unlawful work - no matter how expensive or drastic this is.
- You lose the value from the house by removing unlawful additions.
- Your lender withdraws their offer if lack of consent is discovered during the legal work.
