About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Edith Weston

HomeBuyer Report

Should I book a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a house in Edith Weston and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey, although it is effectively the same comprehensive survey.

If the Edith Weston property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any major works on the property, RICS advise you carry out a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap, however it does give you exhaustive analysis of the Edith Weston property's general condition along with more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Damage caused by high rainfall

Do I need to investigate gutters, and does our Edith Weston home buyers survey mention it?

Despite England's reputation for wet weather the impact damp weather can have on a structure is rarely paid due attention. For instance, spalling on walls around drainage can often mean that the drainage are at risk. Whether buying in Edith Weston or elsewhere, difficult drainage does not necessarily mean that you need to pull out. Such matters are often simple to fix if dealt with quickly.However, the damage caused, where left untreated, will be expense to remedy and resulting damp and mould could become a health risk.

Conservation area

Will there be any things we would be advised to look out for if purchasing an extended house in Edith Weston in conservation area ?

There are many thousands official conservation areas throughout England and Wales which are designated by the local council.

A Building Surveyors are required by RICS to have relevant knowledge of relevant local issues and the connection may have with the home and its value. House prices will be higher owing to them resisting change. However many conservation areas are falling into a state for example - the unsightly effect of billboard advertising

Surveyors can be expected to inform you if the home is or might be classified as such and Section I of a Homebuyer Report will recommend additional due diligence and enquiries are conducted by your legal adviser. Unapproved extensions to the building may be advised but these are really more a investigated by your lawyer.

Landfill site near home

What should we be aware of when purchasing a maisonette close to a refuse landfill site

Landfill Sites take many forms including industrial refuse disposal. Nobody ideally wants to live near one (4/5 people live under 2km away from one). Worries might include leaking underground tanks from petrol stations for example. Health issues for example downs syndrome have been associated with landfill sites .

Surveys in Edith Weston will examine structural defects resulting from the landfill. Your conveyancer will conduct environmental searches of the British Geological database in addition to South Kesteven Local Authority and inform you of any issues and let you know if the searches fail .

Traditionally built property

My partner and I are buying a renovated farmhouse in Edith Weston. What impact will the structure have on maintenance?

Many buyers in Edith Weston plan to buy a unique or characterful property. For houses in Edith Weston built before the 20th Century, age, however, can create issues for homeowners, and Structures constructed with traditional methods can be difficult to maintain. You should consider that expert knowledge may be needed. Especially for a home in one of Edith Weston's conservation areas, Traditional building materials may be required.

Asbestos roof tiles

I suspect there may be a risk of asbestos sealant present in the flat. What is asbestos and can it be easily removed?

Asbestos is a carcinogenic fibrous material formed from metamorphic rocks. The 3 main types are Blue, Brown and White and they were commonly used in building materials e.g. boiler cupboard.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has characteristic heat resistance qualities and it may be found in boards around windows.

All forms are hazardous and can lead to lung cancer if inhaled over sustained periods. Should you find asbestos, you should be careful however, never to break asbestos. Professional advice must be taken ASAP.

Surveyors will not tell you whether there is asbestos on a Edith Weston HomeBuyer report. Surveyors will report on possible asbestos during the Edith Weston survey and should recommend professional testing.
