HomeBuyer Report

Should we go for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a house in Heathfield and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey but is effectively the same comprehensive survey.

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

If you intend to do any alterations, you should you carry out a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap however it does give you comprehensive details of the Heathfield property's general condition as well as advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Conservation area

Will there be any potential pitfalls I would be advised to be conscious of when intending to buy a house in Heathfield inside a conservation area?

There are thousands official conservation areas throughout England and Wales which are governed by the local council.

A Building Surveyors are required by RICS to have sufficient knowledge of local issues and the effect may have with the building. Property Prices tends to be inflated because of conservation areas being unspoilt. However many conservation areas have been neglected and are in a state of neglect for example - the excessive amount of traffic management signs

Surveyors will report whether the location could be so designated and the Section I Issues for your legal advisers of a Heathfield Homebuyer Report will suggest suitable questions are carried out during the legal process. Unsympathetic changes to the building may also be noted in the survey, however these should be investigated by the solicitor.

Shocking Electrics

When I saw the period property I am intending to purchase it looked like there were damaged electrical sockets - does a the surveyor write anything on the wiring and electrical system?

During a Heathfield Home Buyers Survey your surveyor should make a note on the condition of the electrics if it is suspected that the electrics are in an unsatisfactory state. This should include a by sight check (i.e. no removal of fittings) of exposed areas of the wiring and other possible problems relating to things like reporting on the state of the fitted appliances, e.g. storage radiators. Ascertaining the whereabouts of any documents from the most recent Periodic Inspection Report handled by an electrician should usually form part of the survey. Looking at any evidence of a test on the condition of the electrical connections carried out by an electrician should usually be part of the Homebuyer report in Heathfield .

Landfill site near home

What should we be fearful of when purchasing a building close to a landfill site

Landfill Sites take many forms including industrial waste. Of course nobody ideally wants to live near one (4/5 people live under 2km away from one). Worries might include leaking underground tanks from petrol stations for example .

Surveys in Heathfield will find any structural defects resulting from the landfill. Your lawyer will commission environmental searches of the Landmark data sets in addition to Wealden Local Authority and inform you if the search uncovers a local landfill site .
