Home Buyers Survey in Carmel

HomeBuyer Report

Should we get a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a property in Carmel and which one would be the cheapest?

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

If the Carmel property is a flat or maisonette, or is a period property, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make any alterations on the Carmel property, RICS recommend you carry out a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it does offer an in-depth analysis of the Carmel property's state of repair in addition to an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

Landfill site near home

What should we be wary of when buying a flat proximate to a rubbish dump

Landfill Sites come in many shapes and sizes for example: commercial refuse disposal. Of course nobody would want to live near one (80% of people live near one). Concerns might include hazardous chemicals. Potential health issues like congenital birth defects have been linked to landfill sites .

Homebuyer reports in Carmel will note structural issues linked to the site. Your solicitor will carry out environmental searches of the Landmark database as well as Flintshire Local Authority and advise you .

Defective door frame

For the Carmel HomeBuyer Report can you give some examples of an red light rating defects impacting 'E6 - Outside doors' ?

In Carmel, examples include a damaged door frame. External doors are checked, assuming keys are available. In general, the security offer by these doors will be reported on.

RICS created the HomeBuyer Report to give property purchasers a clear and easy to read report on the condition of the home they plan to buy, with a minimum of technical jargon. Green, orange and red ratings are an indication of to what extent each defect requires attention. Serious concerns are marked as condition rating 3. They can include defects which compromise the structural integrity of a house. In some cases, an element covered under Section E may be marked as NI, or 'Not inspected'. Irrelevant subsections of the HomeBuyer Report, like an assessment of a conservatory where the home in question does not have one, are disregarded.
