Home Buyers Survey in Disley

HomeBuyer Report

Should I have a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a house in Disley and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same comprehensive survey.

If the Disley property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out substantial modifications, it would be better that you book a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it will give an in-depth analysis of the Disley property's general condition in addition to more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Landfill site near home

What should we be wary of when purchasing a maisonette proximate to a refuse landfill site

Sites used for landfill take many forms e.g. non-hazardous waste disposal. Nobody ideally wants to live near one (4/5 people live under 2km away from one). Worries might include bacterial decomposition resulting in methane .

Homebuyer reports in Disley will note structural issues linked to the site. Your lawyer will conduct environmental searches of the Landmark database and High Peak Local Authority and address any concerns you may have .

Damage resulting from flooding

What's the danger of flooding in Disley. Can a property surveyor investigate flooding, or whether flooding has affected neighbouring property?

Burst dams, tidal activity and inadequate drainage can cause water damage caused by flooding, and property purchasers and owners are understandably concerned. A surveyor has a number of options to assess whether a property is vulnerable. In addition, the Home Buyers Survey may make recommendations for repair work or improved flood protection.Section J of the survey report contains details, where applicable, of flooding risks found within the boundaries of the home or on adjacent sites. Flooding issues will only be raised in Section J of a Home Buyers Survey if the RICS surveyor observes or has reason to suspect that the home is at risk.

Shocking Electrics

When we went to see the mid-century home we are meaning to acquire it appeared that there is an old fuse board ; will a Disley Homebuyer Report give details on on electrical system condition?

When preparing a Building Survey in Disley the surveyor will typically mention the overall electrical system if it appears that the electrics are in a hazardous state of repair. A Surveyor should also focus on possible problems relating to things like inspecting the state of repair of any fixed electrical appliances such as electric showers or the condition residual circuit breakers (RCD). Verifying the location of the documentation from the most recent PIR conducted by an electrician will be part of the survey.
