HomeBuyer Report

Should we choose a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a home in Temple and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, however it is essentially the same survey.

If the Temple property is a flat, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any an extension, RICS recommend you book a Building Survey instead. This survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it does provide you with comprehensive details of the Temple property's general condition along with advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

If in doubt you can get a Temple Home Survey Quote or call 0800 038 6667 to speak to one of our advisers.

Landfill site near home

What should I be worried about if buying a flat proximate to a rubbish landfill

Sites used for landfill are used for a variety of waste for example: industrial waste material disposal. No one wants to live near one (80% of people live within 1.5m of one!). Risks might include chemicals like dioxins. Potential health problems like downs syndrome have been associated to landfill sites .

Temple surveyors will find structural issues linked to the landfill. Your conveyancer will commission conveyancing and environmental searches of the Landmark databases as well as Westminster Local Authority and advise you .

Gas flame

Will a chartered surveyor inspect the safety of the gas flues?

The local surveyor will visually check out the accessible parts of the system. This will mean gas related areas such as gas heaters (also LPG/oil/electric) for instance, as well as gas related gas installations in the house e.g. balanced flues. External fittings or housings will not however be removed. Needless to say, gas can be hazardous and if there are any concerns about gas of any type, contact a gas safe engineer.

Conservation area

Will there be any factors we should look into if purchasing an extended house in Temple near a conservation area?

There are around ten thousand of designated conservation areas throughout England and Wales that are designated and monitored by local councils. Surveyors in Temple are required by RICS to have sufficient knowledge of relevant local area factors and the relation they have with the home and its value. Property Prices tends to be more than prices outside the area due to them retaining original features. However many areas have fallen into a poor state for example - the unsightly effect of billboard advertising

Property surveyors are trained to inform you if the property looks to be classified as such and Section I Issues for your legal advisers of the Temple Homebuyer Report will suggest further enquiries are carried out during the conveyancing process. Out of keeping developments to the property should be commented on, however these should be investigated by your conveyancer. Portrait Solicitors are a local firm situated at 21 Whitefriars Street, Westminster, London, EC4Y 8JJ should be prepared help you with further information. Tel: 020 7092 6990
