HomeBuyer Report

Should I book a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a house in Windmill Hill and which would be cheaper?

Damage resulting from flooding

We are buying a property in Windmill Hill, does the RICS surveyor check signs of flooding, or whether flooding has affected neighbour's houses?

The impact of flooding, both in the region of Windmill Hill and nationwide, is a serious concern for property owners, and insurance premiums. can be significantly affected for residences in flood-risk areas.

As with many aspects of home ownership, flood prevention is better (and cheaper) than a cure. The Building Survey may also, where appropriate, advise on needed maintenance.Familiarity with characteristics of the local area likely to affect house enables the residential surveyor to surmise flooding may be a risk, even if the property has not itself flooded before. Also included on Environment Agency's flood danger alert are details of local rivers and other bodies of water prone to flooding.

The Environment Agency state that no recent warnings have been for Windmill Hill.

Landfill site near home

What should I be wary of if buying a house proximate to a landfill site

Landfill Sites come in many shapes and sizes including commercial waste material disposal. Understandably, no one really wants to live near one (most people do live within 1.5m of one!). Concerns include leaking underground tanks from petrol stations for example. Health issues for example congenital birth defects have been associated with landfill sites .

Homebuyer reports in Windmill Hill will find any structural issues linked to the site. Your legal representative will conduct environmental searches of the Environmental Agency data sets in addition to Bristol Local Authority and give you the results of the search .

Stone block wall damage

I am intending to put an offer in on a residential property built York stone. Are there specific factors to consider?

From Farmington Stone to Lees Endcliffe Sandstone, there are many types of stone used in the construction of homes in this country. Faults common to poorly maintained stone walls can include mould.

Stone walls are either regular (cut) or irregular in structure, each of which will provoke particular concerns. You can ask the surveyor carrying out the survey for specific advice, but common maintenance suggestions include repointing of loose or crumbling mortar.

The sheer breadth of varying stone materials can make it difficult for purchasers to correctly identify the particular stone used in the building of a home. Quarries in Windmill Hill should be able to supply local stone.

If, in the course of carrying out maintenance, you need further advice, contact a local stonemason or specialist. For example, Amberglow of 2 Regent Street, Runcorn, WA7 1LJ may help.
