HomeBuyer Report

Should we have a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a home in West Dean and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey but is basically the same the same comprehensive survey.

If the West Dean property is a flat, or is a period property, 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 carry out substantial modifications, it would be better that you commission a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it will offer exhaustive analysis of the West Dean property's state of repair as well as information on defects as well as maintenance options .

Building Surveys on houses

Are there any advantages to opt for the full structural survey in West Dean rather than a HomeBuyer Report when looking into a derelict terraced townhouse?

Full Structural Surveys are now defunct as a newer more detailed survey which is classified as the Building Survey, is now offered by surveyors. The HomeBuyer Report is all you really need for a 60 year old or less unmodified property made out of standard construction materials. A RICS Building Survey is the most relevant selection for the house mentioned.

Bear in mind that certain limitations are integral with any survey - a qualified surveyor is not able to, unless safe to do so and with consent from the owner, force or open up the structure of the house for example, or inspect no ladder available for flat roofs.

Landfill site near home

What should we be concerned about if buying a property proximate to a rubbish landfill

Sites used for landfill come in many shapes and sizes e.g. hazardous waste. Of course nobody wants to live near one (4/5 people live within 1.5m of one!). Worries might include tars and other hazardous materials. Health problems such as congenital birth defects have been associated to landfill sites .

West Dean RICS surveyors will flag up structural problems resulting from the landfill. Your conveyancing solicitor will carry out environmental searches of the British Geological databases as well as Wealden Local Authority and will advise you accordingly .

Timber damage by insect larvae

We are buying a home in West Dean but are worried about insects - Is a Building Survey advisable?

Pests like thrips may sometimes seem a small, even irrelevant, matter when buying in West Dean. Regrettably, pest problems can impact a home's worth and carry serious health risks. It may not be obvious that a house is suffering a severe pest problem, as evidence can be overlooked, for example, dust mites make they habitation in furnishings and bedding, and are a common source of allergies. Remedies to pest problems can include chemical treatment. If investigation does uncover a problem, consider speaking to the seller to ask that they deal with the issue prior to exchange.
