HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to have a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a property in Syston and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, although it is effectively the same comprehensive survey.

If the Syston property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any major works, you should you book a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it does provide you with comprehensive details of the Syston property's general condition in addition to an opinion on defects , repairs as well as maintenance options .

Timber damage by insect larvae

My husband spotted signs of insects in the lounge - How do we investigate further?

Property in Syston are generally free of pest problems, but it is inadvisable to risk buying without more information if you have suspicions. When purchasing a property, this matter should be borne in mind. It may not be obvious that a property is suffering a severe pest problem, as evidence can be overlooked. As an example, cluster, or swarming flies, are often found in lofts and can be a serious, seasonal annoyance if not treated. Treatment for pest problems may include destruction of tainted materials.

Landfill site near home

What should I be concerned about when buying a house proximate to a landfill site

Sites used for landfill come in many shapes and sizes for example: industrial rubbish disposal. Nobody ideally wants to live near one (most people do live under 2km away from one). Concerns include tars and other hazardous materials .

Building Surveys and valuations in Syston will examine structural defects linked to the landfill. Your lawyer will carry out environmental searches of the Environmental Agency data sets and Leicester Local Authority and inform you of any issues and let you know if the searches fail .

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Will my survey give a property valuation and reinstatement cost estimate (including costs for reconstructing permanent outbuildings) and what will it include?

A Homebuyer Report on a Syston building will include an independent valuation and will also include a "reinstatement cost". To fully consider the value of the property your surveyor will factor in local Syston market factors and other things about the property for instance: square metres.

Surveyors also examine construction type and will make certain key assumptions like there being no major problems. A Building survey does not include a valuation as standard. A valuation can, however, be added for a small additional fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out. The valuation is also on the basis that there is an absence of any problematic legal problems such as proper access over pathways. These will be investigated by your conveyancer.

Further Syston conjectures, such as there being no disputes between occupiers or the access roads not being in private control, are made in addition to any Syston environmental problems like the area being prone to flooding, which will also be factored in.
