HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to get a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a home in Garstang and of the 3, which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey and is effectively the same.

If the Garstang property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make significant alterations, it would be better that you select a Building Survey instead. This survey is not as cheap however it does give exhaustive analysis of the Garstang property's condition as well as including information on defects as well as maintenance options .

Landfill site near home

What should I be wary of when buying a building near to a refuse tip

Sites used for landfill come in many shapes and sizes for example: non-hazardous rubbish. Of course nobody really wants to live near one (4/5 people live under 2km away from one). Risks include complex organic chemicals. Health concerns such as downs syndrome have been associated to landfill sites .

Surveyors will note structural defects linked to the landfill. Your conveyancer will carry out environmental searches of the Landmark databases and Wyre Local Authority and inform you of any issues and let you know if the searches fail .

Overgrown flat roof with weeds

On the HomeBuyer Report what impact will a green light rating have on 'E2 - Roof coverings' ?

Quite a common example is ponding on the roof. Roof coverings will be reviewed, provided that access is possible. If it is not possible to properly access this area for inspection (if, for example, the property is a flat), the surveyor will make note of this in their report. A rating of 'green', or 1, means that the element of the property being investigated is in good condition, but this does not mean that no future work is required. Seasonal checks may still be appropriate to prevent deterioration. Not inspected' is used to indicate those subsections of Section E which do not apply to the Garstang property. The structured format for the HomeBuyer Report is intended to produce a useful and comprehensive survey for any buyers. As a result, some sections are omitted where they do not apply to the surveyed property.

Traditionally built property

I am buying a 17th Century converted stable. Will maintenance costs be higher?

Many purchasers would like to own a house with personality, like a Medieval cottage. A property's age, however, can create issues for homeowners. Buildings showcasing traditional or "vernacular" techniques can be challenging to upkeep. It is often the case that expert knowledge is necessary. Traditional building materials may also need to be sourced, particularly in the case of property in a conservation area. If you plan to make alterations to a period property, discuss options with your property surveyor for further advice.
