HomeBuyer Report

Should we have a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a home in Nelson and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, although it is basically the same the same.

If the Nelson property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction, then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any major works, it would be better that you opt for a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it does provide you with comprehensive details of the Nelson property's state of repair as well as including an opinion on defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

Traditionally built property

I am buying a warehouse conversion. Will the house's age be an issue?

Use of traditional methods can worry purchasers. Nelson homes featuring traditional or "vernacular" techniques can be difficult to repair. It is often the case that specialist knowledge is necessary, and it could also be necessary to find Construction materials, such as matching stone or wood, , which could end up costing more than initially budgeted.If the house you are

buying may require specialist maintenance, contact your chartered surveyor for further advice.

Stone block wall damage

We are planning to buy a conversion and the seller has stated that it has been built with Portland stone. What should we look in to?

From Hopton Wood Limestone to Orton Scar Limestone, there are many types of stone used in the construction of homes in this country. Issues which impact the lifespan of stone-built elements are as diverse as the stone varieties themselves. Irregular stone walls are found throughout the county, and can require more care and attention that regular, brick-like stone walls due greater impact the weather can have on exposed mortar. Guidelines for better stone wall upkeep include resolution of underlying problems, like damp, before work on the wall starts.

Landfill site near home

What should I be wary of when buying a maisonette close to a refuse landfill site

Landfill Sites come in many shapes and sizes for example: inert waste. Understandably, no one ideally wants to live near one (most people do live near one). Worries might include complex organic chemicals .

Surveyors will find any structural issues connected with the site. Your conveyancer will carry out environmental searches of the Environmental Agency data sets as well as Pendle Local Authority and address any concerns you may have .
