HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to get a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a property in Sandbanks and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey but is basically the same the same survey.

If the Sandbanks property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out any works or an extension on the Sandbanks property, you should you opt for a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it will give you comprehensive details of the Sandbanks property's general condition along with an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

Landfill site near home

What should we be concerned about when buying a property close to a landfill site

Sites used for landfill take many forms including domestic waste disposal. No one would want to live near one (most people do live near one). Worries include heavy metals. Health concerns for example abdominal wall problems have been associated to landfill sites .

Building Surveys and valuations in Sandbanks will flag up structural issues resulting from the landfill. Your conveyancer will commission conveyancing searches of the Environmental Agency databases as well as Poole Local Authority and give you the results of the search .

Shocking Electrics

When we went to see a property we are intending to acquire we saw that there could be corrosion of the wiring; will a Sandbanks survey report on electrical system condition?

During a Sandbanks Home Buyers Survey a qualified surveyor will usually remark on the state of the electrics if it is apparent that they are in a hazardous state of repair. A Home surveyor is trained to provide detail on issues like verifying the state of the fitted appliances like storage heaters. Inspecting any evidence of the most recent PIR conducted by an electrician will be part of the Homebuyer report in Sandbanks. Inspecting the documents from the most recent Periodic Inspection Report conducted by an electrician should usually form part of the survey.

The IEE recommend that a PIR be conducted every ten years (or every 5 if letting out).

Roof defects identified during a survey

A leaky roof brings up bad memories for us. What should we be concerned about during the survey work?

Residential property in Sandbanks that are otherwise ideal can, to the disappointment of their would-be owners, still suffer roof maintenance problems. From the dormer windows to the wind braces, the status of the whole roof should be reviewed. Your building surveyors may then recommend that some faults need urgent attention.

It may be inconvenient to employ scaffolding to perform repairs, especially in the busy parts of Sandbanks, but it is a health and safety necessity. A quote for the work could be sought from a reliable roofing specialist in Sandbanks.
