HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to book a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a property in Allenton and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey but is effectively the same.

If the Allenton property is a flat, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any works or an extension, RICS recommend you book a Building Survey instead. This survey is less cheap but it will offer a thorough analysis of the Allenton property's state of repair as well as advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

Landfill site near home

What should we be worried about when buying a home in the region a rubbish landfill

Sites used for landfill take many forms for example: domestic waste material. No one wants to live near one (4/5 people live near one). Risks include complex organic chemicals .

Allenton RICS surveyors will find structural issues linked to the landfill. Your legal representative will commission environmental searches of the Landmark databases as well as South Derbyshire Local Authority and inform you of any issues and let you know if the searches fail .

Overgrown flat roof with weeds

On a HomeBuyer Report carried out in Allenton, what will 'E2' cover?

RICS created the HomeBuyer Report to give house buyers a clear and easy to read report on the condition of the home they plan to buy. The surveyor uses a scale between 1 and 3 to show the seriousness of any issues included in the survey.

An example defect for this is exposed roof felt. As part of Section E, E2 reports on flat and sloped roof issues. These will be checked by the surveyor, provided that access is possible.

Roof defects identified during a survey

A leaky roof brings up bad memories for us, and we expect to budget something for roof maintenance. Will access to the roofing be problematic?

Questions like this are often asked of house surveyors by property purchasers who are aware that property will suffer damage to the roof. Any part of the roof or loft, such as tie beams, ought to be checked, and where the matter is serious, it should be rectified promptly.

Repairs can be the cause of serious accidents, which is why modern contractors refuse to work without scaffolding. If a estimate for roofing work is required, a roofing specialist can provide one. Speak to Davis C of 1 Ashopton Av, Derby, DE23 8DR on 01332 609274 to request an estimate.
