About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Filton

HomeBuyer Report

Should we book a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a house in Filton and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey, however it is essentially the same survey.

If the Filton property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any alterations, RICS recommend you choose a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap, however it will give a thorough analysis of the Filton property's general condition in addition to an opinion on defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

Landfill site near home

What should we be fearful of when purchasing a maisonette next to a rubbish landfill

Landfill Sites are used for a variety of waste e.g. commercial rubbish. Of course nobody wants to live near one (4/5 people live near one). Concerns might include structurally instability. Health concerns such as cancer have been associated with landfill sites .

Building Surveys and valuations in Filton will notice any structural issues resulting from the landfill. Your legal representative will commission environmental searches of the Environmental Agency database as well as South Gloucestershire Local Authority and will advise you accordingly .

Conservation area

Are there any issues we would need to be aware of when planning to buy a period property in Filton near a conservation area ?

There are many thousands of designated conservation areas throughout England and Wales, responsibility for which lies with the local authority.

Home Buyers Surveys in Filton are required by RICS to possess relevant knowledge of relevant local issues and the bearing they have on the home and its value. Property Prices will be enhanced due to them retaining original features. However a large number are falling into disrepair e.g. the huge increase in street clutter

Surveyors will tell you whether the location might be in a conservation area and Section I Issues for your legal advisers of a Filton Homebuyer Report will advise further investigations are raised by your legal adviser. Out of keeping changes to the building may also be advised, however these should be concern for your lawyer.
