HomeBuyer Report

Should I book a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a home in Barlaston and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey, although it is effectively the same.

If the Barlaston property is a flat, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction, you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make any works or an extension on the property, it would be better that you choose a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it does provide you with an in-depth analysis of the Barlaston property's general condition as well as including more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

Damage caused by high rainfall

Is heavy rain an issue in Barlaston? We're concerned about replacement costs.

Climate change is regularly in the news. However this issue is not given more thought by property buyers. For instance, spattered mud around the bottom of downspouts may indicate that the drainage are damaged, and may lead to cracked foundations and subsidence. Fortunately, these defects are generally easy to

fix. However, if the drains are not cleared out regularly, the resulting damage can lower the value of the property and become increasing harder to repair.

Landfill site near home

What should we be fearful of when purchasing a house next to a rubbish landfill

Landfill Sites take many forms e.g. hazardous rubbish. Of course nobody really wants to live near one (4/5 people live near one). Risks might include bacterial decomposition resulting in methane. Health concerns such as congenital birth defects have been linked to landfill sites .

Building Surveys and valuations in Barlaston will find structural issues resulting from the site. Your conveyancing solicitor will carry out environmental searches of the Environmental Agency database as well as Stafford Local Authority and inform you of any issues and let you know if the searches fail .
