HomeBuyer Report

Should I get a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a house in London Colney and which would be the cheapest?

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

If the London Colney property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any an extension, RICS advise you choose a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap but it will give you exhaustive analysis of the London Colney property's state of repair in addition to advice on defects , repairs and maintenance options .

Conservation area

Will there be any things I would need to consider when planning to buy a period property in London Colney in a conservation area?

There are 9, 300 of designated conservation areas throughout the country which are governed by local authorities.

Home Buyers Surveys in London Colney need to have sufficient knowledge of local area issues and the effect they have with the home.

Landfill site near home

What should we be worried about when purchasing a house near to a rubbish tip

Sites used for landfill take many forms e.g. non-hazardous refuse disposal. Nobody wants to live near one (80% of people live within 1.5m of one!). Concerns might include complex organic chemicals. Health problems such as congenital birth defects have been associated to landfill sites .

London Colney surveyors will examine structural issues resulting from the landfill. Your legal representative will carry out environmental searches of the Environmental Agency database in addition to Hertsmere Local Authority and inform you if the search uncovers a local landfill site .

Gas flame

Will a surveyor examine the safety of the gas appliances?

A qualified RICS surveyor will visually look at any easily accessible parts of the gas system. The survey will include the gas pipe route at the building, in addition to gas connected appliances for example - chimney linings. Any external fittings won't however be detached. The gas system won't be tested at all. Needless to say, gas is potentially deadly, should you have any concerns about gas fittings at all, , call a gas engineer.
