HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to book a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a property in Woolacombe and which one is the cheapest?

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

If the Woolacombe property is a flat or maisonette, or is a period property, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction, you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any alterations, it would be better that you select a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap, but it will provide you with a more detailed analysis of the Woolacombe property's general condition as well as including advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

Traditionally built property

We are buying in Woolacombe. What will we need to investigate when buying a building constructed in 1780? What should be budgeted for regular maintenance?

For houses in Woolacombe built before the 20th Century, age can be a cause of concern for would-be buyers, and Woolacombe property built using traditional methods can be difficult to repair. It is often the case that expert knowledge is necessary. Traditional building materials may also need to be sourced, particularly in the case of a home in one of Woolacombe's

conservation areas. This may be a good opportunity to discuss lowering the purchase price to cover repair costs.

Landfill site near home

What should I be concerned about if buying a maisonette next to a landfill site

Sites used for landfill come in many shapes and sizes including hazardous rubbish. Nobody would want to live near one (80% of people live under 2km away from one). Risks include chemicals like dioxins. Potential health problems for example abdominal wall problems have been linked to landfill sites .

Homebuyer reports in Woolacombe will note any structural defects resulting from the landfill. Your conveyancing solicitor will conduct environmental searches of the Environmental Agency database and North Devon Local Authority and advise you .

Window frame

For a HomeBuyer Report on a Woolacombe house, what will 'E5 - Windows' cover?

RICS HomeBuyer Reports are transparent, detailed surveys of residential property. As buyers in Woolacombe are unlikely to be experts in local building techniques and materials themselves, the report is written with as little jargon as possible. The report uses colour coded condition ratings to give house purchasers a clear understanding of to what extent each defect requires attention.

A fairly common example may be stiff sash windows. Where practicable, all windows are to be opened and closed, but not forced open, and vulnerable areas closely examined. The surveyor should make notes and advise the client whether it is possible to operate the window transoms/openings satisfactorily.
