Home Buyers Survey in Tutbury

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to go for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a property in Tutbury and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey, however it is essentially the same.

If the Tutbury property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any substantial modifications, you should you book a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap, but it will give you an in-depth analysis of the Tutbury property's general condition along with information on defects and maintenance options .

For more detailed advice you can get a Tutbury Homebuyers Survey Quote on our site or call us 0800 038 6667 to speak to one of our advisers.

Stone block wall damage

Do stone-walled houses in Tutbury cause problems for purchasers? Which major defects should we consider? Does the surveyor give advice on this?

Buyers of listed property should consider that appropriate maintenance methods and goods are used. This is enforced by the council. Issues including staining affect many stone-walled homes. Irregular stone walls are not uncommon to homes, but dressed (cut) stone may also be used. In addition, lime mortar may feature in the building's construction. These walls will need frequent upkeep.

Ask you surveyor for details, but the report may specify removal of invasive plants, such as ivy.

Ask your surveyor for clarification if you are in doubt as to likely maintenance, particularly if the house in question is listed or located in a conservation area.

Contact a local mine or quarry, e.g. Willington Quarry, Castleway Lane, Willington, Derbyshire, DE65 6BW, quarrying Sand & Gravel, for details. Call 01215 525446 for more information.

Landfill site near home

What should we be aware of if buying a building next to a landfill site

Landfill Sites are used for a variety of waste e.g. non-hazardous rubbish. Nobody would want to live near one (4/5 people live near one). Worries might include methane gas generation. Potential health issues like spina bifida have been associated to landfill sites .

Surveyors will flag up any structural defects linked to the landfill. Your conveyancing solicitor will carry out environmental searches of the Landmark databases in addition to South Derbyshire Local Authority and inform you if the search uncovers a local landfill site .

Traditionally built property

We are buying a cottage in Tutbury. What should be budgeted for maintenance?

For traditionally-built Tutbury property, age can be problematic. Tutbury property built with traditional methods can be expensive to maintain. It is often the case that specialist expertise is necessary. Traditional materials may also need to be sourced. This can result in higher ongoing expenses. If you plan to make alterations to a period building, discuss options with your surveyor for more information.
