HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to have a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a home in Levenshulme and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey, however it is basically the same the same level of survey.

If the Levenshulme property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction, then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out substantial modifications, RICS recommend you carry out a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap, but it will provide you with exhaustive analysis of the Levenshulme property's state of repair in addition to advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

What impact does clay soil have on a home's foundations? Can we expect the Levenshulme Building Survey to mention this?

Surveyors handle more questions relating to subsidence than any other topic, and clay soil is a major contributing factor to the problem. Subsidence is one obvious concern, but there are others, including groundwater level variations. There may be little evidence of underlying defects. If present, expansive clay soil can put lateral pressure on a Levenshulme house's foundations, leading to bowing, cracks and severe structural damage. During the HomeBuyer Report or Building Survey, the effect that the soil make up could have on the house will be considered.

Conservation area

Are there any issues I should on guard for when purchasing an extended house in Levenshulme near a conservation area?

There are over 9, 000 of conservation areas in the UK which are overseen by the local authority. Levenshulme surveyors need to have sufficient knowledge of relevant local area factors and the effect they have on the building and its value. Property values will likely be higher than non conservation area equivalents owing to the areas being unspoilt. However many have been neglected and are in a state for example - badly maintained and potholed roads and pavements

Surveyors are trained to advise whether the location is possibly within a conservation area and Section I Issues for your legal advisers of your Levenshulme Homebuyer Report will advise the proper questions are conducted during the conveyancing process. Unauthorised developments to the property may be advised but these are really more a concern for the lawyer.

Landfill site near home

What should we be concerned about when purchasing a building next to a refuse landfill site

Landfill Sites come in many shapes and sizes including inert waste material disposal. Understandably, no one ideally wants to live near one (80% of people live near one). Risks might include chemicals like dioxins. Health concerns such as downs syndrome have been linked to landfill sites .

Homebuyer reports in Levenshulme will examine any structural problems linked to the site. Your legal representative will conduct environmental searches of the Environmental Agency databases in addition to Manchester Local Authority and inform you if the search uncovers a local landfill site .
