HomeBuyer Report

Should I choose a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a property in Windermere and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey but is effectively the same level of survey.

If the Windermere property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any major works, RICS recommend you choose a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap but it does offer a thorough analysis of the Windermere property's condition as well as including an opinion on defects , repairs as well as maintenance options .

Conservation area

Will there be any things I need to check out if planning to buy a converted flat in Windermere near a conservation area ?

There are nearly 10, 000 of conservation areas in the UK that are designated and monitored by the local authority. Windermere surveyors must have knowledge of relevant local considerations and any bearing they have on the home and its value. Values tends to be higher owing to the areas retaining original features. However many areas are falling into shoddy condition e.g. the removal front garden walls

RICS surveyors are trained to report if the home looks like it may be is so classified and the Section I Issues for your legal advisers of the Homebuyer Report will advise additional enquiries are conducted during the conveyancing process. Out of keeping modifications to the property will also be advised, however these should be investigated by your legal representative.

Damage caused by high rainfall

What effect could wet weather have on a home in Windermere? Also, where there [var10], what should we do?

Rainfall is a fact of life in the UK, however, the effect which rainfall has on a structure is not given the attention it deserves by buyers. One indication that rainwater goods are blocked is rotten wooden gutters.

These issues are, generally speaking, straightforward to repair fairly cheaply. If untreated or poorly maintained, however, the damage will impact both the home's value, and the residents' enjoyment of the property.

Landfill site near home

What should I be worried about when purchasing a maisonette proximate to a refuse tip

Landfill Sites are used for a variety of waste for example: industrial waste. Of course nobody wants to live near one (4/5 people live near one). Worries include hazardous chemicals. Health problems such as spina bifida have been linked to landfill sites .

Surveyors will notice structural issues linked to the landfill. Your conveyancing solicitor will commission conveyancing searches of the Environmental Agency data sets in addition to South Lakeland Local Authority and inform you of any issues and let you know if the searches fail .
