Home Buyers Survey in Fenton

HomeBuyer Report

Should I go for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a home in Fenton and which one would be cheaper?

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

If the Fenton property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make any works or an extension, you should you choose a Building Survey instead. The Building Survey is less cheap, but it does offer a thorough analysis of the Fenton property's state of repair as well as including more detailed advice on defects , repairs and maintenance options .

Roof defects identified during a survey

I have put in an offer on a Fenton building with a loft conversion. Which issues relating to the roofing will be reported on when the survey is performed?

Fenton property in otherwise fine condition will suffer roof maintenance problems, such as dry rot. Every element should be checked, e.g. gables. The are also numerous flat-roofed properties in Fenton, including many apartment blocks. In these cases, the Fenton surveyors will look for a range of signs, including a poor asphalt covering.

It may be inconvenient to employ scaffolding to perform repairs, especially in the busy parts of Fenton, but it is a health and safety necessity. If a estimate for roofing work is required, a roofing contractor can provide one.

Landfill site near home

What should we be worried about if buying a home next to a rubbish tip

Landfill Sites are used for a variety of waste including domestic waste disposal. No one ideally wants to live near one (80% of people live under 2km away from one). Concerns include leaking underground tanks from petrol stations for example. Potential health issues like birth defects have been associated with landfill sites .

Building Surveys and valuations in Fenton will notice structural problems linked to the landfill. Your conveyancer will commission conveyancing searches of the Environmental Agency database as well as Stoke-on-Trent Local Authority and will advise you accordingly .

Building Surveys on houses

Should I pay more money for a full structural survey, instead of a Homebuyer Report when carrying out due diligence on regency house ?

Building Survey is now the correct term for the Structural Survey following its renaming a while ago by RICS. Choose a RICS Building Survey if you are thinking of buying the property described. A HomeBuyer Report is enough for a post fifties unmodified house of conventional construction materials i.e. brick walls and tiled roof. There are several limitations come with any survey insofar as a surveyor will not be able to force or open up the structure of the building of inspect where doing so could cause damage to the house.
