HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to go for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a home in Oxton and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey but is essentially the same level of survey.

If the Oxton property is an apartment, or is a period property, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any alterations, it would be better that you commission a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap, but it will give a thorough analysis of the Oxton property's general condition and it includes an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

Gas flame

Will the surveyor advise on the serviceability of the gas installations?

A chartered surveyor will locate and visually examine the easily accessible parts of the system. A surveyor will want to inspect the condition of the meter as part of the survey, as well as gas connected appliances/installations like ventilation of flue (if blocked). Any external fittings will not be undone. The system will not be tested in any way. Gas can be fatal, should there be any concerns relating to gas installations, call a gas safe engineer.

Gas regulations stipulate landlords are legally required to complete appliance and installation inspections annually and punishments for failure to comply include heavy fines .

Timber damage by insect larvae

We are buying in Oxton, and think we saw signs of pests in the study - What should we do?

Infestations can range from the mild and harmless, to the seriously harmful. This issue should be taken seriously. Evidence may not be easy to find. As an example, skin irritation or spots of blood on bedsheets may indicate the presence of bed bugs. Remedies can be disruptive to residents, and may require you to move out during the work in extreme cases.

Landfill site near home

What should we be wary of when buying a property close to a refuse landfill site

Sites used for landfill take many forms e.g. non-hazardous waste disposal. Of course nobody ideally wants to live near one (4/5 people live near one). Risks include structurally instability. Health problems like cancer have been associated to landfill sites .

Oxton RICS surveyors will examine any structural issues resulting from the landfill. Your conveyancing solicitor will commission environmental searches of the British Geological data sets as well as Selby Local Authority and give you the results of the search .
