If the Upton property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction, you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make any alterations on the Upton property, you should you choose a Building Survey.

Stone block wall damage

Can West Cornwall granite-built houses be a challenge. What should we be particularly aware of, and what will the survey reveal?

Ranging from Lees Endcliffe Sandstone to Broadway Dark Cream Limestone, the stone used in a home's structure will impact maintenance. Problems which impact stone-built houses in Upton can vary greatly, with issues like delamination being quote common. Irregular stone walls are found throughout the county, and can require more care and attention that regular, brick-like stone walls due greater impact the weather can have on exposed mortar. Ashlar courses are often used to finish more irregular stone walls, with mortared rubble or brick hidden behind. This can give rise to maintenance issues if either element of the wall has been treated with a non-breathable material. Upkeep advice often given in a survey includes repointing mortar with a suitable material.

Landfill site near home

What should I be wary of when purchasing a maisonette proximate to a refuse landfill site

Landfill Sites come in many shapes and sizes for example: commercial waste material. Nobody would want to live near one (most people do live near one). Concerns include heavy metals. Potential health problems for example congenital birth defects have been associated to landfill sites .

Homebuyer reports in Upton will note any structural issues resulting from the landfill. Your lawyer will carry out environmental searches of the Environmental Agency data sets as well as Bexley Local Authority and advise you .

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Should I get a separate valuation and cost of rebuild estimate (including the cost of reconstructing a retaining wall) and what does it include?

The Homebuyer Report contains a valuation and a reinstatement (rebuilding) cost estimate as a standard part of the survey. To properly appraise the correct valuation the valuer will take into account awareness of the Upton property market and other factors relating to the property e.g. desirability of the location. The valuer will also consider certain fixtures and fittings and will make certain key assumptions, for example no significant 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.

Additional local Upton area conjectures like problematic roads and access, are made in addition to local environmental concerns like local mining issues, which are also considered as part of the valuation.
