HomeBuyer Report

Should I get a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a house in Aughton and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same comprehensive survey.

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

If you are thinking about whether to carry out any alterations, it would be better that you choose a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it will give you comprehensive details of the Aughton property's state of repair in addition to an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

Landfill site near home

What should we be wary of when buying a house in the region a refuse landfill site

Sites used for landfill take many forms including non-hazardous rubbish. Of course nobody wants to live near one (4/5 people live near one). Worries might include structurally instability. Health concerns for example downs syndrome have been associated to landfill sites .

Building Surveys and valuations in Aughton will notice structural issues resulting from the site. Your conveyancer will commission environmental searches of the Landmark data sets as well as Sheffield Local Authority and give you the results of the search .

Conservation area

Will there be any problems we would need to be conscious of if planning to buy a house in Aughton in the vicinity of conservation area ?

There are 9, 300 of conservation areas in England and Wales that are designated and monitored by the local council. Your surveyor must possess knowledge of local factors and any bearing may have on the property. House prices are generally greater as a result of the areas being in good order. However many areas have fallen into a state of neglect for example - out of keeping extensions

Surveyors can be expected to advise you if the planned purchase is or might be within a conservation area and Section I of the Homebuyer Report will suggest the proper questions are carried out as part of the legal process. Unauthorised changes to the building may also be noted but these are really more a concern for your legal adviser. Coates Solicitors are based in 62-64 High Street, North East Derbyshire, Derbyshire, S20 5AE might be happy to advise. Tel: 0114 251 1111

Damaged Render

What will the RICS Surveyor look for on a smooth stucco coated regency home in Aughton that I am thinking of purchasing.

Stucco is in fact a kind of smooth render. Commonly stucco render is applied to red brick that sets to a smooth and attractive finish. The effect is highly grand in appearance and is common on some Victorian and Georgian buildings. Stucco is often problematic and Aughton Building Surveys commonly focus on defects for example, when movement of the wall leads to cracking of the surface.

Another example of problems could result from the burden of heavy load such as cracking under concrete slate roofs. Re-coating Stucco problems may be costly as craftsmen are getting more difficult to find.
