HomeBuyer Report

Should we have a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a home in Wennington and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same.

If the Wennington property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any major works, it would be better that you select a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap however it will provide you with comprehensive details of the Wennington property's state of repair as well as more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

I'm confused - which surveys include a valuation and reinstatement cost estimate (including costs for reconstructing a retaining wall) and how is it calculated?

A Homebuyer Report on a Wennington building will include a (registered valuer) surveyor valuation and a reinstatement (rebuilding) cost estimate included in the cost of the survey. To properly appraise the property's value the valuer will take into account in depth understanding of the Wennington market and other considerations about the property e.g. number of bedrooms The surveyor will also consider materials used and will use key assumptions e.g. there being no major problems. Surveyors don't factor in things like furnishings, for example curtains.

Additional local Wennington area assumptions, for example services, are made in addition to Wennington environmental concerns like the area being prone to flooding, which are also considered as part of the valuation.

A Building survey won't 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.

Conservation area

Will there be any factors we should look out for if purchasing a period property in Wennington inside a conservation area?

There are thousands official conservation areas in the UK, responsibility for which lies with local authorities.

A Building Surveyors must possess relevant knowledge of local area issues and any relation may have with the building and its value. Property values is generally significantly higher owing to them being unspoilt. However many areas have been neglected and are in a state for example - out of keeping extensions

Surveyors can be expected to advise you if the planned purchase is or might be classified as such and the Section I Issues for your legal advisers of your Homebuyer Report will suggest further enquiries are raised as part of the legal process. Out of keeping developments to the building may also be commented on, however these should be investigated by your legal representative.

Landfill site near home

What should we be worried about if buying a home next to a rubbish dump

Sites used for landfill come in many shapes and sizes for example: industrial waste material disposal. No one really wants to live near one (80% of people live near one). Worries might include bacterial decomposition resulting in methane. Health problems for example cancer have been associated to landfill sites .

Wennington RICS surveyors will flag up any structural defects linked to the site. Your conveyancing solicitor will carry out environmental searches of the Landmark database and Thurrock Local Authority and give you the results of the search .
