HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to book a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a house in Belton and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same comprehensive survey.

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

If you are thinking about whether to do any major works, it would be better that you opt for a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap, however it does give a thorough analysis of the Belton property's state of repair as well as an opinion on defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

Stone block wall damage

Will a Belton house with stone walls generate lots of maintenance costs? Are there specific potential issues to bear in mind?

Locally quarried stone may be more susceptible to specific issues, and the defects impacting a type of stone will vary according to its properties. The two main forms of mortared stone wall construction found in Belton are regular and irregular. Dry stone construction is used in garden walls and field boundaries, but is rarely employed for inhabited structures. Stone will also decay as a result of environmental conditions,

for example, limestone can quickly deteriorate. A survey will include a range of suggestions or requirements for maintenance, such as.

Timber damage by insect larvae

We are buying in Belton, and think we saw signs of bugs in the basement - How do we investigate further?

Pests like mice may sometimes seem a small, even irrelevant, matter when buying in Belton. Regrettably, pests can seriously reduce the value of a property and put your health in danger. It is vital that buyers consider this oft-overlooked aspect when making an offer.

Signs may not be evident for weeks or months. As an example, the smell of ammonia in or behind cupboards may indicate mice, even if no droppings are found. Treatment for an infestation may include chemical treatment. If investigation does uncover a problem, consider speaking to the seller to ask that they deal with the issue prior to exchange.

Landfill site near home

What should we be wary of when buying a home close to a rubbish landfill

Landfill Sites are used for a variety of waste including non-hazardous rubbish. Of course nobody really wants to live near one (4/5 people live under 2km away from one). Concerns might include leaking underground tanks from petrol stations for example. Health concerns like gut problems have been linked to landfill sites .

Surveyors will note structural issues connected with the landfill. Your conveyancing solicitor will conduct conveyancing searches of the Environmental Agency data sets as well as South Kesteven Local Authority and inform you if the search uncovers a local landfill site .
