Home Buyers Survey in Bidford On Avon

HomeBuyer Report

Should I get a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a home in Bidford On Avon and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey but is basically the same the same.

If the Bidford On Avon property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out any works or an extension, you should you opt for a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap however it does provide you with comprehensive details of the Bidford On Avon property's state of repair and it includes more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Shocking Electrics

When I visited the unmodernised property I am meaning to buy I think we saw that there is an old fuse board - does a Bidford On Avon Homebuyer Report go into detail on electrical system condition?

When carrying out a Bidford On Avon Homebuyer Report your RICS surveyor should mention the electrics if it is apparent that the electrics are in an unsafe condition. This will include a non invasive examination of exposed parts of the wiring, fusebox etc. as well as potential areas for concern such as verifying the state of repair of the fixed electrical appliances, for example water heaters or reporting on the condition of any visible wiring a representative sample of switch gear. Inspecting any evidence of a test on the condition of the electrical installations handled by an electrician should usually be part of the survey.

The Institute of Electrical Engineers suggest a Periodic Inspection be conducted every ten years (5 if letting).

Landfill site near home

What should I be wary of if buying a building in the region a refuse tip

Landfill Sites come in many shapes and sizes for example: industrial rubbish disposal. Understandably, no one ideally wants to live near one (80% of people live within 1.5m of one!). Risks include methane gas generation. Potential health concerns like congenital birth defects have been associated to landfill sites .

Surveys in Bidford On Avon will find any structural defects connected with the site. Your solicitor will carry out conveyancing searches of the Environmental Agency database as well as Stratford-on-Avon Local Authority and inform you if the search uncovers a local landfill site .

Damage resulting from flooding

We're purchasing in Bidford On Avon. Is there a flood risk, and will the building survey look for flood damage?

A wide variety of factors can cause flooding, from inadequate drainage to tidal activity. Those planning to buy in affected areas should weigh up their exposure. A flood alert service, with regular updates, is operated by the Environment Agency, but a surveyor will also make recommendations to prepare for the worst.

Preventative measures can include costly but effective solutions e.g. raised door thresholds. The surveyor may ask the property owner or occupier about historical floods, although the result of these enquires should be treated as a guide only.
