HomeBuyer Report

Should we select a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a house in Wilford and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey and is effectively the same.

If the Wilford property is a flat or maisonette, or is over 100 years old, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make any alterations on the property, RICS advise you go for a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap but it does give exhaustive analysis of the Wilford property's state of repair and it includes an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

Landfill site near home

What should we be fearful of if buying a home in the region a rubbish tip

Landfill Sites are used for a variety of waste including domestic waste material disposal. Understandably, no one ideally wants to live near one (4/5 people live within 1.5m of one!). Worries might include leaking underground tanks from petrol stations for example. Health issues for example spina bifida have been associated with landfill sites .

Surveyors will flag up any structural issues linked to the site. Your lawyer will conduct environmental searches of the Landmark databases and Nottingham Local Authority and give you the results of the search .

Gas flame

Will the RICS chartered surveyor inspect the condition or the safety of the gas flues?

A RICS surveyor will visually examine the easily accessible parts of the system. The survey will include the location of the meter for example, in addition to gas associated fixtures like chimney linings. The Wilford chartered surveyor won't remove any external fittings or housings and won't do any tests whatsoever on the functionality of the gas system. Most people are aware that gas is potentially fatal, should there be any worries about gas, contact a gas safe engineer.

Regulations legally require landlords to commission appliance and installation inspections yearly and punishments for failure to comply are severe .

Damaged Render

What will the RICS Surveyor look for on a roughcast rendered (stucco) house in Wilford.

Stucco is in fact just a smooth and flat render. Normally stucco is layered over brick that dries to a very smooth surface. The coating is highly beautiful and is often found on Regency properties for example. Stucco is often prone to defect and Wilford Home Buyers Suveys frequently detail issues such as when it is faced with constant driving rain which gets perma-saturated and prone to frost damage.

Another example of problems associated with stucco could result from the carrying of heavy weight or loads such as cracking under the roof joists. Remedying Stucco problems may be costly as despite the craft being thousands of years old, the skills are becoming rarer.
