HomeBuyer Report

Should I choose a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a property in Notting Hill and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, although it is effectively the same comprehensive survey.

If the Notting Hill property is a flat or maisonette, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any substantial modifications, RICS advise you select a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap however it does offer exhaustive analysis of the Notting Hill property's condition in addition to advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Landfill site near home

What should I be fearful of when buying a home in the region a rubbish tip

Sites used for landfill take many forms for example: inert rubbish. Nobody would want to live near one (most people do live within 1.5m of one!). Risks include complex organic chemicals. Health issues for example birth defects have been associated with landfill sites .

Notting Hill RICS surveyors will consider structural issues linked to the landfill. Your lawyer will carry out environmental searches of the Environmental Agency data sets and Westminster Local Authority and inform you of any issues and let you know if the searches fail .

Conservation area

Will there be any potential pitfalls we would be advised to check on if intending to buy a property in Notting Hill in a conservation area?

There are over 9, 000 official conservation areas in England and Wales that are designated and monitored by the local authority.

A Building Surveyors need to possess sufficient knowledge of local issues and the connection may have on the building and its value. Prices will likely be enhanced because of them retaining original features. However many of them are falling into are falling into disrepair for example - badly maintained and potholed roads and pavements

Surveyors are trained to report whether the location looks like it may be in a conservation area and Section I of the Homebuyer Report will advise the proper questions are carried out by your legal adviser. Unapproved modifications that do not have Local Authority approval will also be advised in your survey, however these should be concern for your lawyer.

Shocking Electrics

When I was shown the home I intend to lease, the agent said that there is deterioration in the wiring and RCD unit; will a surveyor report on any faults with the electrics?

The RICS surveyor is required to report back on possible problems relating to things like the condition miniature circuit breakers (MCBs).
