HomeBuyer Report

Should we go for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a house in Greystones and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same survey.

If the Greystones property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make major works, RICS advise you opt for a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap, but it will give you comprehensive details of the Greystones property's condition along with advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Damage caused by high rainfall

Are wet conditions an issue in Greystones? And could it affect the property value?

Rainfall is a fact of life in the UK, however, heavy rain and the effect it can have on your property are usually overlooked. As an example, damp stains around drainage will likely suggest that the downspouts are blocked. These issues are, generally speaking, straightforward

to resolve, if maintenance is taken seriously. If poorly maintained, the resulting damage can lower the value of the property and will get increasingly difficult to successfully resolve.

Landfill site near home

What should I be fearful of if buying a property close to a rubbish landfill

Sites used for landfill take many forms including non-hazardous refuse. Understandably, no one ideally wants to live near one (80% of people live near one). Concerns include bacterial decomposition resulting in methane. Health concerns for example congenital birth defects have been associated with landfill sites .

Greystones surveyors will flag up any structural issues connected with the site. Your conveyancing solicitor will conduct environmental searches of the Landmark databases in addition to Sheffield Local Authority and will advise you accordingly .

Traditionally built property

What do I need to bear in mind when buying an older property? Will repairs costs be higher?

Older construction methods and materials can sometimes be an issue. Property showcasing traditional methods can be a chore to repair. You should be aware that expert knowledge may be needed. Traditional building materials may also need to be sourced. Contact your surveyor for further advice.
