HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to select a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a house in Shirehampton and which one is cheaper?

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

If the Shirehampton property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any major works, it would be better that you go for a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap however it does give a more detailed analysis of the Shirehampton property's condition and it includes more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Roof defects identified during a survey

I am going to put in an offer in on a property in Shirehampton, and we are wary of potential roofing issues. What does a surveyor in Shirehampton investigate as part of the survey?

Residential property in Shirehampton that are otherwise ideal could feature issues with the roof. All aspects of the roof should be reviewed, from the gables to the collar beams. Your building surveyors may then recommend that some faults need urgent attention.

The expense of replacing rotten rafters or soffits, or other major roof work, means that some owners put it off for as long as possible. This is a false economy, as such issues can lead to more severe general structural problems. A quote for the work could be sought from a reliable local contractor.

Damage resulting from flooding

We think this home is located on a flood plain. Is there a major flood risk? Would our house surveyor look for possible water damage?

Last year was the second wettest year on record (source: The Times). Those planning to buy in affected areas should weigh up their exposure. A surveyor has a number of options to assess whether a property is vulnerable. Flood water can enter a home through a number of routes, including air bricks, poorly fitted doors and windows, and seepage through external walls. An awareness of characteristics of the Shirehampton area likely to affect the home also enables the home surveyor to advise flooding may be a risk. The home surveyor will usually recommend that the purchasers seek legal advice on any related information mentioned in the report.

The Environment Agency have updated the status for the Tidal River Avon between Shirehampton Park and the Avonmouth Bridge including Pill and Shirehampton, near Shirehampton, to 'No warnings'.

Landfill site near home

What should we be fearful of when buying a flat close to a landfill site

Landfill Sites are used for a variety of waste e.g. inert refuse. Understandably, no one would want to live near one (most people do live near one). Risks might include hazardous chemicals. Health issues for example congenital birth defects have been associated with landfill sites .

Shirehampton RICS surveyors will consider structural problems linked to the landfill. Your legal representative will carry out environmental searches of the Landmark data sets as well as Bristol Local Authority and address any concerns you may have .
